South African fintech startup Prosperiprop has been able to raise “just over $200 000” through an initial coin offering (ICO) which closed yesterday, the startup’s founder Llew Morkel said today.
Prosperiprop launched the ICO earlier this year to raise funds from investors to develop software that will help financial institutions to offer property investment products via the Blockchain.
Responding in an email to Ventureburn, Morkel said the company was able to sell over 600 000 PROPX tokens through the ICO.
The ICO, he said, had helped raise “more than enough” money to fund the development of the project. “The project is in very good shape and going ahead. The tokens have been distributed to token holders, and listed on IDEX exchange,” he added.

He said the startup will be listing on other exchanges too, but that it needed to wait for the last ICO to close before other exchanges would consider listing the startup’s token.
The $200 000 Prosperiprop was able to raise comes in stark contrast to the mere $36 000 another ICO which also closed yesterday and was run by Ekasi-bucks was able to raise.
