Microlender Everex has closed its initial coin offering (ICO) after raising $26 million USD, collecting 1,580 legacy bitcoins (worth $7.54 million) and 49,477 ETH (worth $18.9 million).
Everex offers ethereum blockchain-based microlending, remittances and merchant payments to under-served individuals and small businesses globally.
