Despite the challenging year which made the global community rethink its values and priorities, 2020 was also the year of great changes and new services for Safello. With new services, events and nominations, we made most of it and are ready to share our achievements with our customers.
In 2020, we introduced Safello Premium, one of the most anticipated services for our premium customers. Designed to make the purchase of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies more convenient and seamless, Safello Premium puts a great emphasis on personal support, trust and transparency. Premium customers can enjoy better fees, professional support and security ensured by the most trusted currency exchange for cryptocurrencies.
You can read more about Safello Premium in our blog.
This year, we also launched the Safello App, a more convenient and faster way to buy Bitcoins and Ether! We are excited to introduce the new app format which will help our customers to purchase more crypto with a simple and user-friendly application. With the Safello app, customers can view the entire order history which can be downloaded in CSV format as well as follow the Swedish Bitcoin rate in real-time. What is more, they get access to push notifications in case of major price changes.
Safello raised SEK 11 million in a new investment round
In December 2020, Safello raised SEK 11 million in a new round led by Digital Currency Group. Our CEO Frank Schuil has also announced the company's plans to get listed on the Nasdaq First North Growth Market in 2021. Our team is grateful for the support and approval that we have received in this endeavour.
The primary purpose of the IPO is to strengthen our growth opportunities further, which can hopefully contribute to increased transparency and shed light on a traditionally misunderstood industry. We plan to broaden our product portfolio and foresee a potential expansion abroad in the near future, says Frank Schuil, co-founder and CEO of Safello.
