USD $30M = largest token sale from a Singapore company on record!
Singapore startup, Electrify, aims to use blockchain to let users buy electricity from energy retailers and other consumers, has raised US $30 million in an impressive token sale lasting under 10 days.
This makes it one of the largest token sales from a Singapore company on record, according to Tech in Asia’s data. 
Looking northward, Electrify is already in talks with Japan — a huge player in the energy market — for deployment in the country. Japan is one of blockchain’s strongest supporters, with laws put in place to ensure fair transaction.
The news couldn’t have come at a better time, as we recently announced the addition of Martin Lim to our renowned list of keynote speakers at Summit Tokyo.
Martin Lim is the Co-Founder & COO of Electrify, and carries over 20 years of experience in the mass communications industry, having served as both a creative and strategic lead for a diverse range of clients ranging from SMEs to MNCs.
A perpetual problem solver, ideas-generator and new business connector, Martin has transformed idealistic startups into newsworthy, profitable businesses as the lead in corporate planning, business development and consolidation, over the last decade. Identifying a gap in the market, Martin and his business partner, Julius, developed ELECTRIFY.SG with the aim of bringing the e-commerce concept to the market for electricity plans. Through ELECTRIFY.SG, they bring greater choice and savings in time and cost to consumers as well as greater clarity on electricity packages.
