Bankera’s Co-Founders have Announced they have Fully Acquired the Pacific Private Bank Limited

Bitcoin Press Release – One of the biggest ICO sales to date, Bankera has announced that the goal of becoming a bank for the blockchain era and a one-stop store for all financial services will be delivered ahead of schedule

Thursday, 31st of January – Bankera’s co-founders have announced they have acquired the Pacific Private Bank Limited, with the two remaining as separate projects. The bank will improve its operational infrastructure by leveraging the blockchain technology on offer.

A Bank with History and Infrastructure

Pacific Private Bank  was founded in 1997 and has over 21 years of experience, specializing in asset and wealth management services for private clients. Hard work and a favorable geographical, economical, tax and legal environment built the core foundation of this successful enterprise.

Throughout the years, the Pacific Private Bank has developed an advanced IT infrastructure to support complex banking operations as well as a solid client base. The bank is also notable for its manpower, which represents some of the brightest minds in the banking and finance sector.

Pacific Private Bank and Bankera teams will focus on different goals: the bank will continue working with fiat-based banking solutions and Bankera will keep its focus on providing both crypto and fiat services around the globe. Current bank managers Mantas Staliūnas and Algirdas Purkėnas will continue to work as Managing Director and Treasurer, respectively, while Audrius Žiugžda and Martin St-Hilaire will continue as the bank’s Directors.

As members of Bankera’s advisory board, they will also share their expertise and insights with Bankera’s team. Žiugžda and St-Hilaire have been publicly acknowledged for their extensive knowledge and professional insights in the M&A sector, banking operations, also international experience in fields of auditing, accounting, banking, taxes, and risk management.

Bankera: A Building Block

Bankera is building a fully digital bank, without costly bricks and mortar branches which will eventually become a one-stop store for all financial services. As an operational fork of SpectroCoin, an all in one solution for cryptocurrencies, with over 740,000 clients and 5 years in cryptocurrency markets, Bankera are poised to innovate and provide a crucial stepping stone to worldwide adoption of the Crypto sphere.

Bankera’s team will empower the Pacific Private Bank with bank-level blockchain technology. In order to do so, one of the first steps to be done is to connect the Pacific Private Bank to the Ripple network. This move, which aims to facilitate cross-border transactions, has already attracted interest from leading global banks such as Santander, UniCredit, UBS and Standard Chartered. Also, blockchain-based identity management and KYC (Know Your Client) solutions will be implemented at the Pacific Private bank to improve client onboarding and make efforts toward a more secure, regulated market.

An ICO that Stands Out

On November 27th Bankera launched an ICO sale which has attracted over 65,000 contributors, making it the biggest ICO by contributor number so far. This is not the only record Bankera has under its belt – during its pre-ICO alone, Bankera collected over 25 million Euros, making it one of the biggest publicly open pre-ICOs in the world. Thus far, the company has already raised 80 million euros and is determined to meet the hard cap of 177 million euros.

Bankera’s ICO is taking place on the SpectroCoin platform where ICO contributors can choose from more than 20 payment methods when purchasing their BNK tokens. These include a variety of cryptocurrencies, such as ETH, BTC, DASH, XEM and others.

Bankera ICO is Now Live: Be Part of the Banking Revolution

November 30, 2017, Vilnius, Lithuania — In September, Bankera (https://bankera.com/) completed one of the biggest pre-ICO sales to date after raising 25 million Euros and gathering more than 16,000 contributors. Now, after much anticipation, its’ ICO sale officially opened to the public on November 27th.

Bankera is building a revolutionary bank for the blockchain era, which will eventually become a one-stop store for all financial services. It is an operational fork of SpectroCoin (https://spectrocoin.com), a cryptocurrency solution service with an existing base of 490,000 clients and more than 64,000 cards issued.. Since it has already developed a core infrastructure equivalent to traditional banks, a natural extension of the company is to leverage its’ existing technology to build Bankera.

Bankera’s Updates

Bankera has built a team of over 50 talented professionals with expertise in diverse fields. Audrius Ziugzda, an expert banker, is the latest addition to company’s advisory board. He brings with him over 20 years of experience in the banking sector, mainly in the M&A, banking operations and strategic fields. He joins names such as Lon Wong, president of the NEM.io foundation, Antanas Guoga, a member of the European Parliament, and Eva Kaili, also a member of the European Parliament.

Bankera’s Services

In order to operate in a spectrum of different fiat currencies and to facilitate cross-border transactions, Bankera will seek banking licenses in several key jurisdictions. This will help to lower the number of counterparties, resulting in reduced costs for the end consumer.

It will also offer core banking services, such as savings and loans accounts, as well as low-cost investment products, such as exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and crypto funds. Through Bankera’s MVP, SpectroCoin, contributors and clients can already use its services including fiat and cryptocurrency wallets, exchange and payment processing services. They can also order cryptocurrency debit cards, which can be linked to Bitcoin, DASH, Ethereum, or NEM wallets.

Bankera’s business development strategy, led by Craig Grant, who formerly worked at the Paysafe Group and Currencycloud, continues to deliver innovative and unique results. Most recently, the team released the demo version of Bankera’s exchange platform and the ability for its users to claim International bank account numbers (IBAN).

Bankera’s Own Exchange Platform

As the world of blockchain technology continues to grow and diversify, Bankera realised that was a demand for a viable product that would address the needs of all of its users. SpectroCoin’s #1 focus has been on giving its users a platform to purchase, sell and trade Cryptocurrency, which has therefore led to a solution tailored for that in regards of user experience, interface and cost structure. As trading becomes more widespread, Bankera continues to adapt to the always-changing market. As such, they have developed an in house, cost-effective exchange platform that will give its users the ability to trade at a most lower cost.

Bankera’s exchange will support most cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, DASH, Ethereum, NEM, Litecoin to name but a few as well as ERC20 and NEM mosaic tokens. The company will be working closely with ICO contributors and cryptocurrency users throughout the project development, since it aims to develop a product that fits the needs of the community.

How To Buy Tokens

On November 27th Bankera has launched its main ICO sale which together with pre-ICO has already raised over 30 million euros with over 23,000 investors and counting. During the ICO, 30% of the tokens are available for sale to the public at the price of 0.017 EUR on SpectroCoin platform. ICO contributors can choose from more than 20 payment methods when to purchase their BNK tokens. These include a variety of cryptocurrencies, such as ETH, BTC, DASH and XEM, and fiat currencies like EUR, GBP, and USD.

Throughoutthe ICO, Bankera will continue to offer a weekly net transactional revenue share for all token holders. After the ICO, the company aims to obtain a banking license and transition to a fully operational banking service for both, fiat and cryptocurrencies.
