Crypto payment processing company to aggressively accelerate sales, marketing and execution of product roadmap
Santa Monica, CA, March 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — RocketFuel Blockchain, Inc. (OTC: RKFL) (“RocketFuel” or the “Company”), a developer of online payment solutions via bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, today announced it has secured up to $2.3 million in equity financing by Triton Funds, the nation’s largest student-managed investment fund.
The funding consists of up to $1 million in common stock purchases plus a 5-year warrant to purchase an additional $1.3 million in common stock. The stock purchases may be made in tranches at RocketFuel’s option once a registration statement covering the purchased shares becomes effective, and may continue through December 31, 2022.
Closing this funding round combined with the breadth and profile of investors demonstrates the widespread support for RocketFuel’s novel payment processing solutions along with consumer data privacy protections. The $1 million stock purchase commitment brings the total equity funds raised and committed by private investors in RocketFuel since September 2019 to $2.4 million, including $1.4 million from other private investors.
The funds will be used to accelerate RocketFuel’s growth, which aims to aggressively on-board eCommerce stores and merchants across North America and enable the company to continue providing merchants competitive pricing options compared to high credit card fees and at the same time improving shopping cart experience for their customers.
Casey Barraza of Triton Funds commented: “We believe strongly in the future of crypto payment systems for the E-Commerce industry. RocketFuel’s payment solution converts users into life long customers by adding real value and experiences that cannot be matched by traditional payment processing solutions. We were impressed with RocketFuel’s deep management team and advanced technology. We look forward to a long relationship with RocketFuel as we provide critical growth capital.”
Peter Jensen, RocketFuel’s CEO, stated: “We are excited to welcome Triton Funds as an investor in RocketFuel. Triton’s strong investment record and its understanding of businesses that are attractive to the millennial generation makes them an ideal capital partner for our company. With this investment, we can continue to fund our product development and ramp up our sales and marketing as we move towards our first product launch this quarter.”
