Blockchain startup Dragonchain has concluded a $15 million initial coin offering (ICO) for its enterprise blockchain platform that originally began as a prototype at Disney’s innovation-focused Seattle office.
Disney had originally conceived Dragonchain in 2014 as a blockchain-based asset management platform, but two years later it shelved the project and released it as open source software.
Dragonchain, the blockchain startup that began as a Disney prototype, has raised approximately $13.7 million in an initial coin offering (ICO).
According to the Dragonchain site, roughly 30,521 ether and 622.47 bitcoin were contributed during the two-stage token sale, which began with a pre-sale in August and ended with the conclusion of a public sale that concluded earlier this week. The pre-sale itself raised approximately $1.4 million (152.25 BTC and 2357.53 ETH).
In statements, representatives for the firm said that the funding will go toward development as well as establishing a market for the firm's Dragon token.
In 2014, Disney’s Seattle office began developing a corporate blockchain known as Dragonchain. Now, the project is approaching commercialization — complete with an initial coin offering — although Disney is no longer involved.
As reported in Business Insider, Disney spent two years building a blockchain intended to serve as an asset management platform.
