Bnk To The Future (BF) ETH Staking Solution Updates

After a successful beta phase, our ETH Staking Solution now boasts 330 validators, collectively staking 10,560 ETH. This equates to a total value of $32,781,502, benefiting our investors.

We have also distributed over 150 ETH in rewards to our investors. Unlike with other ETH Staking solutions, with us you are simply renting a validator from us in exchange for a cut of your rewards. Your ETH remains unchanged and is not converted to another token, avoiding potential taxable events. Of course this is not tax advice and you should check this with your tax advisor. The yield is 100% reflective of the yield earned by validating transactions on-chain on the Ethereum Blockchain with no retaining or other risks taken in the middle.

You can start staking with us at any scale, whether starting small or diving in with larger commitments. Your journey starts promptly, and you can anticipate your initial staking reward as early as next Monday, contingent upon the queue for setting up a validator on the Ethereum Blockchain.. 

You have the flexibility to either compound your rewards or convert them to Bitcoin, all conveniently within our platform. 

All ETH is securely segregated from our platform business, Bnk To The Future, through our registered virtual asset service provider, BF Virtual Assets Ltd. Your assets are held in custody in your name, ensuring complete segregation and added protection. 

For full details, please visit this link. Alternatively, you can start validating transactions by depositing ETH today and accessing the funds section of your account here.

Introducing Bnk To The Future Dynamic Private Equity Share Certificates

Transforming Our Investor Experience: “Project Securities Restructuring” at Bnk To The Future

With over $600m of private equity shares under administration for our investors, we have been busy completing a project that we internally called ‘Securities Restructuring’. This project was a multi-year project that involved a complete rebuild of how we custody private equity shares for our investors. Additionally, it entailed conducting a thorough audit of every corporate action undertaken by each portfolio company throughout its lifecycle, since the inception of our investment and the holding of shares for our investors.

The purpose and goal were to:
1. Ensure investors have easy access to their investment history as their portfolio companies grow or, in some cases, face challenges, facilitating easier calculation of returns and assessment of any tax implications.
2. Streamline the process of listing shares of successful companies on our secondary market by providing comprehensive transparency on all corporate actions related to those shares.
3. Introduce dynamic share certificates containing a complete archive of all relevant actions for investors’ records. This facilitates easier participation in future corporate actions and allows for an upgrade of the user interface in the portfolio section of investors’ accounts to enhance user-friendliness.

Launching Dynamic Share Certificates: Enhancing Transparency and Investor Experience

We are pleased to announce that we have initiated the beta phase for dynamic share certificates. This testing process involves implementing Dynamic Share Certificates one portfolio company at a time, with the aim of a full rollout to all portfolio companies for all investors by the end of this year. EXODUS, our next company going public, is currently undergoing beta testing. We value your feedback and patience as we’ve completed a comprehensive audit of every corporate action for each portfolio company, ensuring accuracy and transparency for every investor on our platform.

Evolution of Bnk To The Future: Navigating The Growth Of Bitcoin Private Equity Investments

To grasp the benefits of this feature and its eventual impact on your portfolio, let’s delve into the background of how we reached this point and why we found it necessary to re-architect our entire platform to incorporate this feature.

As Bnk To The Future stands as the longest-standing company in Bitcoin and the world’s first crypto securities business, we’ve witnessed Bitcoin’s remarkable growth from $3 to over $70,000. Meanwhile, within our platform, companies listed with us, initially backed at valuations below $10 million, have now gone public with valuations exceeding $100 billion. Simultaneously, we’ve witnessed the launch of the most successful multi-billion dollar Bitcoin ETF in history.

We initially started as a regulated securities and investment platform, aiming to raise finance for Bitcoin companies at a time when venture capitalists showed little interest in our sector. Over time, we evolved, creating investment products that offered daily dividends in Bitcoin or Mining, and later expanded into staking Ethereum. This evolution prompted us to acquire additional licenses to facilitate custody, trading, and staking of virtual assets through our registered Virtual Asset Service Provider (VASP). As the companies listed on our platform grew and eventually went public, we identified the need for additional licenses to enable our investors to trade public shares through our regulated investment dealer.

As investor demand grew for holding private equity in Bitcoin companies, virtual assets such as Bitcoin, ETH, and USDT, and shares in public companies within an asset protection retirement structure, we introduced our portfolio builder service. Designed for high net worth Bitcoin investors, this service provides an efficient framework for inheritance, tax, and retirement planning.

In addition, our CEO launched educational programs to empower investors in utilizing our platform to build and protect their Bitcoin wealth. These programs encompass the Bitcoin Wealth Builder Program and targeted initiatives focused on maximizing recoveries in bankrupt investments, such as Celsius. For more information on Simon Dixon’s products benefiting Bnk To The Future investors, please visit here.

BnkToTheFuture.com: Your All-In-One Bitcoin Investment Platform

Over a decade since launch, BnkToTheFuture.com is now an All-In-One Bitcoin investment platform where you can or will be able to:
• Buy, Sell, Stake & Custody Virtual Assets & Fiat Currencies like Bitcoin BTC, Ethereum ETH, Tether USDT & US Dollar USD etc.
• Buy, Sell & Custody NASDAQ traded Bitcoin Stocks, ETFs & Mutual Funds like Coinbase, Marathon & BlackRock iShares Bitcoin Trust etc.
• Buy, Sell & Custody Shares in Private Bitcoin Companies with illiquid Private Equity OTC Secondary Markets like shares in Circle, Kraken & BitFinex etc.
• Hold your investments in a segregated asset protection structure with retirement plan asset protection, inheritance & simplification of tax reporting in mind.

Adapting To A Substantial Increase In Investor Returns. The Evolution Of Bnk To The Future.

You can imagine we have had to adapt our technology to allow for the complete life cycle of a startup Bitcoin company like Kraken (that raised finance with us early as private equity), through to companies like Coinbase who had an early stage secondary market for their private equity on our platform before they went public on NASDAQ. 

With This In Mind We Are Proud To Introduce To All Of Our Investors – Dynamic Share Certificates.

To understand this new feature, let’s take a look at the life cycle of one of our portfolio companies – Popular crypto wallet Exodus.

Here is the growth journey that both Exodus and our investors went through on our platform since they raised finance with us in 2016:
• They raised equity finance on our platform as an early stage startup before it was easy to value the company using a convertible note loan with a valuation cap to convert to equity in the future at a valuation below $10m no matter how much the next round investors pay. This locked our investors valuation upside as an early stage investor with interest paid in shares.

• Bnk To The Future Capital SPC held these shares for our investors, who received shares in Bnk To The Future Capital Exodus SP along with a share certificate. This certificate could be downloaded at any time from our platform

• As EXODUS grew, the convertible note loan was converted into equity, effectively securing a significant valuation increase due to the valuation cap. This increase occurred as venture capitalists invested at a much higher valuation, reaching into the hundreds of millions, consequently enhancing the value of our early-stage investors’ shares.

• We enabled our investors to trade on an illiquid secondary market, where we matched them with high net worth investors on our platform who may have missed the initial round but were interested in holding it in their portfolio of Bitcoin & crypto companies. This process would update the share certificates and registrations to reflect the new ownership structure.

• Exodus prepared to go public by issuing a security token in partnership with another one of our portfolio companies, Securitize. They also decided to execute a share split, doubling the number of shares for all investors while halving the value of each share. This adjustment maintains a neutral effect on overall value but increases the number of shares available for trading.

• At the same time, Exodus offered all investors the opportunity to sell some of their shares at an approximate $750 million valuation, thereby locking in a substantial partial gain. Additionally, investors had the option to receive their dividend payments in Bitcoin, granting them the full upside of Bitcoin thereafter.

• Investors who accepted the Exodus share buyback had the flexibility to custody their Bitcoin on our platform, withdraw it to their own self-custody cold storage, or even trade it for ETH and stake it with our registered Virtual Asset Service Provider (VASP).

• Investors had the choice to retain their shares or receive them as a security token, which could be traded on a security token exchange. They could hold their EXIT shares on the Exodus wallet or on our platform as they preferred.

• As the company continues to grow, they are preparing to go public on the NYSE OTC market this month in May 2024. Those who convert their ‘B shares’ into tradable ‘A shares’ will gain access to this third market for liquidity.

• Investors will seamlessly be able to custody their now publicly tradable shares with our investment dealer broker, regulated to place orders in public shares. This enables them to sell when they want to, provided there is sufficient liquidity.

• Once they sell, investors can withdraw their USD to their bank account in their local fiat currency. They can also convert them to USDT with our VASP and use them to buy Bitcoin or even ETH, while staking their ETH for weekly rewards. Alternatively, they will be able to purchase their favorite and most cost-effective Bitcoin ETF or public shares in Coinbase. They could even invest in more private equity in another early-stage pre-IPO company or startup from other investors on our secondary market.

• They can also hold these investments in a retirement plan structure for maximum asset protection and efficiency.

Streamlining Bitcoin Private Equity Investments with Dynamic Share Certificates

Our comprehensive Bitcoin investment platform now streamlines all these processes.

That’s why we’ve introduced dynamic share certificates, gradually implementing them across every portfolio company, corporate action, and investor.

The enhanced share certificate will now encompass both the dynamic history and future actions, providing you with a comprehensive overview of all activities within a single document. 

This document can be conveniently shared with your tax advisor or streamlined further using our recently introduced Recap tax software integration, giving you the flexibility to choose the level of detail.

To kickstart this initiative, we are beginning with our portfolio company, Exodus. This serves as an example of the first share certificate in our rollout plan, which will gradually extend to every portfolio company and investor over the course of the year. 

This rollout is synchronized with our ongoing securities restructuring project and private equity audit, aimed at achieving our overarching objectives of expanding secondary markets, increasing public shares, and enhancing the user interface for investor portfolios.

Thank you for taking the time to read this far. We sincerely appreciate your attention and eagerly welcome any feedback you may have.

Conversely, opting to “Save Recovery Kit” may prompt a browser pop-up requesting permission to download the file from “app.recap.io.” You can either proceed by clicking “Allow” or decline by selecting “Cancel,” depending on your preference.

Once saved, check the box confirming, “I have saved my secret phrase or recovery kit,” and proceed by clicking “Continue” when ready.

When you click the “Save Recovery Kit” button, a file will be downloaded to your computer’s local drive. The downloaded file will resemble the screenshot provided below.

Step 7: Choose Your Account Type.

After proceeding, the following screen titled “Choose Your Account Type” will appear. You’ll encounter two options: “Personal” or “Agent.” The “Agent” option is typically chosen by accountants who handle tax matters for multiple clients. Conversely, “Personal” is intended for individuals or organizations managing their own tax affairs. Please choose the option that aligns with your situation and click “Continue” when ready.

It’s important to note that if you select “Agent,” Recap exclusively supports UK companies, meaning it adheres strictly to UK tax regulations. Currently, Recap does not comply with tax regulations outside of the UK. It can still be used to organize your data for tax in most major fiat currencies though.

Step 8: Congratulations!

You’ve reached the final step. You’ll now be directed to a page confirming that your Recap account setup is complete. Simply click the “Open Recap” button to begin exploring your account.

Step 9: Connecting Your Accounts.

Upon clicking the “Open Recap” button, you’ll be directed to a page presenting a “Let’s Get Started” guide. You have the option to either proceed by clicking the “Let’s Get Started” button or skip this step by clicking the “X” button located in the top right corner. For now, we recommend clicking the “X” button to skip this step. (see screenshot below).

Step 10: Press the “Add Account” Button.

Upon creating your Recap account, you’ll notice that the screen displays “No Accounts – Get started by adding an account.” Recap needs access to all accounting information associated with your Bnk To The Future account. You can also add all your other crypto accounts if you choose. Recap has collaborated with Bnk To The Future to develop an automated integration, enabling you to seamlessly import all your Bnk To The Future transactions into Recap.

When you’re prepared, simply click the “Add Account” button to proceed.

Step 11: Select Account Type: Exchange API.

Recap requires access to all accounting information related to your crypto accounts.
The next page will display four account type options. Please select “Exchange API” and click the “Next” button when ready.

Step 12: Add Exchange API Account: Bnk To The Future.

You are now presented with the option to “Choose an Exchange,” showcasing a list of APIs. Locate Bnk To The Future in the list, select it, and then proceed by clicking the “Next” button.

Step 13: Name Your Account: Bnk To The Future.

You can personalize your account by giving it a name. We recommend naming it “Bnk To The Future.” When you’re done, click “Next” to proceed.

Step 14: Notice of Limitations.

You’re about to encounter a screen titled “Notice of Limitations,” which outlines how Recap processes data classifications. Please review this information carefully, and when you’re ready to proceed, click the “Next” button to advance to the next step.

Step 15: Enter Your API Credentials.

This is the stage where you link your Recap account to your Bnk To The Future account. This connection is established by generating a Read-Only API Key on the Bnk To The Future website. It’s important to note that this API Key does not grant Recap any permission to sell or control your crypto assets on Bnk To The Future. Its sole purpose is to allow Recap to pull the accounting history from your Bnk To The Future account.

Once generated, the API Key from your Bnk To The Future account is a one-time setup. You won’t need to repeat this process in the future. When you add the API key (refer to the screenshot below), it establishes a real-time connection. This means that your Recap account will update in real-time, reflecting any transactions made on your Bnk To The Future account, with an approximate 30-second delay for each transaction.

It’s crucial to keep your API key secure. Under no circumstances should you allow anyone, especially hackers, to access your API key.

Rest assured, once you’ve copied and pasted your API key into Recap, it is securely stored. If you suspect your API key has been compromised, you can revoke it within your Bnk To The Future account by clicking on the “Revoke API Key” link located underneath where the API key is generated. In such a scenario, you’ll need to generate a new API key and repeat the process.

15.1: Open a New Browser Tab and Log into Your Bnk To The Future Account to Generate an API Key.

Please open a new tab in your web browser and log into your Bnk To The Future account. From there, you’ll be able to generate an API Key.

15.2: Enter your Authenticator Code.

To proceed, please ensure you have authentication apps such as Google Authenticator installed. If you haven’t set up Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) on your Bnk To The Future account, you’ll need to do so by navigating to the security tab of your account and configuring 2FA. Alternatively, you can use your backup codes (refer to the link provided in the screenshot below).

15.3 After logging into your Bnk To The Future account, navigate to the “Account” tab (refer to the screenshot below).

15.4 Scroll down to API Management and hit the button “Generate a View only API key”.

When you are in the Account tab section of your Bnk To The Future account, scroll down to the API management section where you will be able to see a Generate a View only API key button.

You will notice Recap’s logo and a bit of information which reads: Bnk To The Future has partnered with Recap so that you can connect your BF account seamlessly with Recap in order to generate your Crypto tax reports in an instant. Click here if you don’t have an account.

If you’ve never generated an API key you will notice to the left of the button (Generate a View only API Key) that it reads: No Generated API yet. This will change the minute you hit the Generate a View only API key button.

15.5 Copy the API key to Clipboard.

After clicking the “Generate a View-Only API Key” button, the API Key will be instantly generated and displayed to the left of the button. For security reasons, the API key will be hidden as sensitive information. The button will be grayed out, indicating that you cannot generate another key unless you revoke the current API key (see arrow pointing towards the link in the screenshot below).

To copy the API key to the clipboard, you have two options:

Click the copy button (see arrow pointing towards the button in the screenshot below).
Alternatively, you can simply highlight the API Read-Only generated key within the field to the left of the button (see screenshot below).

15.6 Paste the Generated API Key into Recap.

Return to your Recap tab in your browser. Paste the Read-Only Generated API Key into the designated API Key field (refer to the screenshot below). Once done, click the “Next” button to proceed.

Step 16: Please wait while Recap pulls in your accounting data into your Recap account.

Please wait while Recap pulls in your accounting data into your Recap account. This process may be as quick as 30 seconds.

Under the “Account” tab in Recap, you should now see the connected account listed as “Bnk To The Future.”

Recap is currently syncing the accounting data, indicated by the value showing as £0.00 and the status message “Syncing now.” You’ll also notice a spinning circle symbol indicating the syncing process. At the bottom right corner of your screen, a notification should pop up confirming “Successfully added exchange account: Bnk To the Future.”

Step 17: Your Bnk To The Future Account is Now Linked to Your Recap Account.

Your Bnk To The Future account is now officially connected and synced with your Recap account. Everything is up to date and updating in real-time, requiring no further action from your end.

You should now be able to view the number of transactions made since you created your Bnk To The Future account (indicated by the arrow pointing to transactions). Additionally, you’ll see the current value of your Bnk To The Future account.

For detailed information regarding your Bnk To The Future account, simply click on the connected exchange account, “Bnk To The Future.”

Step 18: Take A Moment To Review Your Bnk To The Future Accounting Data In Your Recap Account.

Take a moment to review your past investments and any virtual assets you may own, such as Bitcoin and ETH. Congratulations! You’ve successfully linked your Recap account to your Bnk To The Future account.

Involved In A Crypto Chapter 11 Case Like Celsius, Voyager, FTX or BlockFi? Read This…

With Voyager, Celsius, FTX and now BlockFi all filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, 2022 has been a tough year for equity investors. As Celsius was a portfolio company on Bnk To The Future, our team has been working hard to support creditors as equity tends to get wiped out in Chapter 11 and some of our investors are now Celsius creditors as well as shareholders. We have learnt a lot about Chapter 11 and have been engaging with creditors, debtors, the Unsecured Creditor Committees (UCC) and participating in Chapter 11 auctions as well as court hearings to maximize recoveries for Chapter 11 creditors. 

At Bnk To The Future we have a long history supporting portfolio companies and investors with effective recovery plans. As early investors in Kraken, in 2015 we experienced first hand utilizing their technology to support Mt. Gox creditors after the exchange shut down. In the 2016 Bitfinex hack recovery, we supported creditors with the world’s first security token that took their recovery from a low of $0.30 on the dollar to a peak of $16 for every dollar owed to creditors after their hack. We also participated in the 2019 Tether recovery. In each case we used financial innovation to support creditors. 

Now with millions of creditors in our sector involved in at least one Chapter 11 case, the team at Bnk To The Future have been working very hard to bring to you a new feature right within your Bnk To The Future account, which allows you to display your Chapter 11 claims and in future releases use them as the Chapter 11 process continues. 

The first initial beta feature allows you to import your claim and have it displayed conveniently within your account. As your Chapter 11 case evolves you will be able to have a voice in the major crypto Chapter 11 processes.  We are starting with Celsius and will add support for Voyager, FTX and BlockFi as the cases progress. In future releases we intend to add the ability to track likely recoveries, trade your claims with other investors and invest in bidder, debtor and creditor financing. 

You can test out this feature now and see your Celsius claim within your account. You can get your account ready and we will notify you as soon as we go live with Voyager, FTX and BlockFi. Get your account ready in preparation using the following guide:

This Blog will show you how to get started with your claim. Let’s get started…

Step 1: You will need to have an account with Bnk To The Future that is verified. If you do not have an account, please hit the Join Us green button on the top right corner of the website and follow all instructions.

NOTE: You must use the same name on your account as your claim. You can create an individual or organizational account. 

If/when you have a verified account on Bnk To The Future, then please continue the following steps:

Step 2: Login to your Bnk To The Future account. Once you are logged in you will see the option on one of the tabs that reads – Chapter 11 Claims (see image screenshot below). Click on this link. Please note that in the future this option will have a drop down menu list where you will see Chapter 11 Claims you would like to apply for e.g. FTX, Voyager, BlockFi etc. For now, this will take you to Celsius Chapter 11 Claim. 

Step 3: Read The Instructions & Supply Any Additional information if needed – this is the part where you are required to submit proof of your account balance e.g. log into your Celsius app and take a screenshot of your account balance. Hit the submit button when you have uploaded your screenshot.

NOTE: If your verified name is unique to the Chapter 11 claim we will match you up automatically with no need to provide additional evidence.

Step 4: You’ve hit the submit button – wait about 48 hours to check back in as we begin verifying your request – Our dedicated team will check everything within 48 hours. If what you have submitted has been rejected, you will see a rejection explanation on the Chapter 11 Claim page. You can then re-submit your screenshot

Whilst you wait, please check out the FAQ section as shown below.

 

To Learn More About The Chapter 11 Process our CEO Simon Dixon created this useful guide on Exiting Chapter 11 with a quick demo of these features at the end. 

We look forward to supporting you through your Chapter 11 journey and to help make a tough situation a lot easier for you. 

It’s important to note: Bnk To The Future displays your claim by finding your full name in the public schedule of asset list. If you have a unique match your request will automatically be accepted. If there are multiple matches, we will ask you for more details so that we can find the exact match.

IMPORTANT: This feature is for informational purposes only. There may be inaccuracies in the source data or the data import process. Under no circumstances is the importing of data anything more than a data import. No legal transfer of claim is being performed when the data is imported.

If you choose to connect your Chapter 11 claim information to your Bank to the Future account, you will not be agreeing or committing to vote your claim in favour of a plan of reorganization or other transaction supported by Bank to the Future or to otherwise support such a plan or transaction.  Bank to the Future is not now soliciting support for any such plan or transaction from Chapter 11 creditors.  Such a solicitation would only be made based on a Disclosure Statement which has been approved by the Bankruptcy Court as containing adequate information or another order of the Bankruptcy Court which expressly permits such solicitation.

Ethereum The Merge

We would like to take this opportunity to inform you that Bnk To The Future is fully prepared for the Ethereum The Merge. The current estimated time for the Ethereum Merge is 2022-09-15 at 01:30 (UTC).

It’s happening in just a few hours from now. 

There are some uncertainty about how the Ethereum Network will handle transactions during The Merge. To avoid unnecessary risk, while The Merge is happening, we will not be processing Ethereum transactions from 14/09/200 to 15/09/2022. This will also include all deposits, payments, and withdrawals. Other protocols will continue to be available, and we will resume the ability to send Ethereum transactions after The Merge.

It is expected that gas fees and other parameters of the network might be unstable during that period. We strongly suggest that you carry out any urgent transactions before The Merge, or wait until after it has happened.

Should you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

Thanks.
