Bitcoin.com’s CEO Roger Ver and COO Mate Tokay have become advisors to a fintech startup MoneyToken, as reported in MoneyToken’s announcement. The partnership between MoneyToken and Bitcoin.com may bring new benefits to the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) community, as BCH will be available as accepted collateral on the MoneyToken lending platform, says the joint press release.
According to Bitcoin.com, Roger Ver is also an advocate of Bitcoin Cash and one of the key influencers in the crypto community because of his early investments — since 2011 — in crypto-related startups including Ripple, Blockchain.info, Bitpay and Kraken. Ver’s company, MemoryDealers, became the first company in the world to accept Bitcoin as a payment option for its services.
As reported in the MoneyToken announcement, Mate Tokay has been involved in the cryptocurrency business as a miner since 2013. He co-founded Bitcoinist.net a cryptocurrency news magazine and he is now the COO at Bitcoin.com — one of the most popular source for bitcoin related news and information.
MoneyToken is a cryptocurrency-backed lending platform that provides loans to cryptocurrency holders. The main idea is that a borrower who owns cryptos may simultaneously deposit cryptos as a long-term asset and spend it at the same time by investing in new initial coin offerings (ICOs), or by trading at exchanges.
“MoneyToken is a bright example of the real use of blockchain technology, as well as offering a massive boost for crypto market liquidity for all market players, and especially for businesses,” Roger Ver said at the press release on the partnership with MoneyToken.
With leading Bitcoin.com executives on the board of advisors, MoneyToken faces new opportunities. “Now Bitcoin Cash holders can enjoy the benefits that MoneyToken offers — leveraging their assets and spending cash, while continuing to hold their crypto positions”, says the announcement.
“The Bitcoin Cash community is a unique and powerful force in cryptocurrency. Adding our support to Bitcoin Cash and allowing our potential token buyers and future lenders and borrowers to operate in BCH, only adds to our portfolio and strengthens the value of MoneyToken as a product for all our users.” Commented Jerome MacGillivray, Co-Founder of MoneyToken.
