ICO Daily (7 Nov): Ethereum Lending Network Ripio Raises $37 Million

Ripio ICO Finishes: $37 Million Raised for Ethereum Lending Network

Blockchain startup Ripio has raised $37 million in an initial coin offering (ICO).

Originally known as BitPagos, the company (which rebranded early this year) had previously raised $31 million during a presale, which included backing from FBG Capital and Blocktower Capital, among others. Investors from 25 countries participated in the two rounds, contributing a total of 121,300 ETH, according to the startup. The sale closed on November 5.

The RCN whitepaper indicates that 42.5 percent of the tokens would be dedicated to a pre-sale maximum, with 8.5 percent set aside for a public sale minimum. The remaining 49 percent were reserved for operational needs, such as incentives, marketing and expenses.

“The original idea of Ripio Credit Network was to widen financial inclusion by extending credit lending globally,” CEO Sebastian Serrano said in a press release. “The support, not only for our platform but for our mission, is truly inspirational and an unforgettable benchmark in the evolution of the lending infrastructure.”

The Ripio Credit Network will serve as a peer-to-peer lending platform, using the token and its associated smart contracts to secure each loan. The system will ultimately capture all of the parties involved in every loan made, including a co-signer on each loan. The cosigner takes on the role of a reinsurer, agreeing to repayment of the loan – under the terms of the smart contract – should the borrower default.

The company’s existing loan portfolio includes 130,000 registered users in Argentina and Brazil. It is currently working on partnerships in places in Mexico, South Korea and Vietnam.
