Wefunder, the Reg CF platform that has now crowdfunded over $8.4 million since May of this year dominating the sector, has now added a new feature. Wefunder now accepts Bitcoin transactions making it even easier to invest in early stage companies. Bitcoin is generally thought of as a highly secure and efficient method of transferring value. In many ways it is better than using a credit card.
Wefunder CEO and co-founder Nick Tommarello told Crowdfund Insider;
“We worked pretty hard to figure out how to offer Bitcoin as a way to purchase securities in a Regulation Crowdfunding legally. It’s a popular request among some of our more tech-savvy early adopter investors, especially as no bank is (yet) willing to enable credit cards for Reg CF.”
“We’re seeing the Reg CF industry start to grow faster. With each success story we’ve funded, more companies have come to Wefunder asking for our help, and our pipeline of upcoming offerings has increased. Our team worked pretty hard to launch 10 companies last week, and we’ll be rolling out another 5 in a few days.”
