DUBAI INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL CENTRE, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, December 4, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Cherry Project today announced the successful completion of its private token sale. The funding round raised a total of $2.9 million, securing investments from some of the leading brands in the cryptocurrency industry. This raise alongside the funds from the upcoming public token sale will equip the project with the resources to drive forward to the much-anticipated Cherry Network mainnet launch in Q1 2022.
The published list of private sale participants spans renowned venture capitalists such as Shima Capital, Protocol Ventures, Coral Capital, Varys Capital, and the Dutch Crypto Investors to industry fixtures such as Gate.io and Figment.io.
As the private sale comes to a close, Cherry’s native token $CHER will be available for sale to the public on the 21st of December 2021 through Gate.io’s Startup program, as well as in the form of initial decentralized exchange offerings occurring concurrently on the launchpads Samurai by CyberFi, Synergia Network, Kommunitas, and Cherry Network’s very own Seedling.CM.
Over 20,000 Cherry community members have already expressed their interest in acquiring $CHER tokens during the public sale, which is presently oversubscribed by over 40 times. While not everyone will be able to participate in Cherry’s token sale, $CHER is expected to become listed and openly tradeable in the markets in the last week of December 2021.
