Our newest flagship product — Token Grant Administration (TGA), a token cap table management/system of record for every token for every founder, employee, investor, went from product launch in October to billions of dollars in on-platform value.
Toku raised $20 million from a consortium led by Blockchain Capital with Protocol Labs, GMJP, OrangeDAO, Orrick, Reverie, Quantstamp, Next Web Capital, and prominent angel investors including Protocol Labs founder Juan Benet and Alchemy co-founders Nikil Viswanathan and Joe Lau.
