Shareholder reveals Bitfinex has secured the $1 billion for its token sale

According to a shareholder close to the matter, Bitfinex’s parent company, iFinex, has received the $1 billion it needed in hard and soft commitments for the launch of its exchange token sale, CoinDesk reports.

Dong Zhao, DGroup founder and trader who owns equity in Bitfinex, said in a WChat post on Thursday that “there’s a high possibility Bitfinex will not conduct a public sale” for its upcoming token offering, LEO.

According to Zhao, the exchange has received hard and soft commitments of $1 billion worth of Tether (USDT), a company that shares its leadership with Bitfinex.

Soft commitments refer to those investors who have yet to lock in their USDT for LEO and who still have the option of backing out of the deal. This means that Bitfinex hasn’t necessarily reached its $1 billion benchmark. However, Zhao states that if any of the investors pull out, the remaining tokens will be issued on a first come, first serve basis.
