BlockTower has raised the full amount in just a few weeks, according to Thomas Klocanas, the company’s general partner. The fundraising occurred in the fall of 2021.

The investment fund says it is ready to invest $500,000 to $6 million in promising blockchain projects, with the company targeting a stake of 5% to 10% on the equity side or 2% to 5% on the token side, Thomas Klocanas tells The Block media.
