PRESS RELEASE. Changpeng Zhao (CZ) sent shockwaves across the crypto industry in September by announcing a $100 million investment fund devoted to projects building on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC). Now, Jointer.io, the world’s first commercial real estate-backed DeFi auction, is matching CZ’s offer dollar-for-dollar in an effort to bring mass adoption to Binance Smart Chain.
Beginning on Monday, Jointer.io will be offering a $100 million early adopter fund to encourage Ethereum users to try out the BEP20 standard on BSC. To participate in the fund, users must visit the ‘Welcome to BSC’ page and simply send from the Ethereum network $1 worth of ETH to receive $100 worth of JNTR BEP20 tokens on the Binance Smart Chain. In order to receive the BEP20 tokens, users must become new adopters by adding the BSC network to their MetaMask wallet.
The early adopter fund will be open to the first one million new accounts to join BSC. In exchange, $100 worth of JNTR will be deposited into each wallet.
Since Sept. 27, JNTR BEP20 tokens have been available for purchase via a DeFi public auction through the Binance Smart Chain. The daily auction’s soft launch has already seen the JNTR token appreciate from $0.01 to $0.45. That means a $100 investment on day one has turned into $4,500 in roughly one month.
“CZ is clearly positioning Binance Smart Chain as the future hub for DeFi and non-custodial trading,” says Yoda (Jude) Regev, Jointer.io founder and CEO. “At Jointer, we selected BSC as the exclusive payment method to facilitate the trade of Jointer stocks. Just as CZ is inviting ecosystem developers to the Binance Smart Chain, Jointer is welcoming users to try out the speed and low gas cost of BSC and to see the benefits of JNTR. And we will give away $100 million to demonstrate its utility.”
Jointer has already created a slippage-free, cross-chain operation with its JNTR bridge tokens between the Ethereum ERC20 standard and…
