Moscow, Russia June 12, 2017 – The Token Fund, which already has over $1 million in cryptocurrency tokens under management, has announced the inclusion of three advisors to their project. Those advisors are Alex Fork, Wulf Kaal, and Leif-Nissen Lundbaek.
Token Fund has shown remarkable gains in what has been an intentionally below the radar alpha testing stage. The project has a goal of attracting investors and having over $10 million under management before the end of 2017.
“I’ve had amazing experiences talking to these three guys, and it’s very exciting for me to have them as advisers on this project,” stated CEO and founder Vladimir Smerkis. “They’re extremely knowledgeable and their experience in relevant industries is really helping us turn this project into what we want it to be. The Token Fund is the service that crypto investors have been asking for: a fund that provides steady growth that blows away what you can get out of typical stock market index funds, but that does not take risky, leveraged positions that endanger the solvency of the fund.”
Alex Fork, the founder of Humaniq, a simple and secure 4th generation mobile bank, brings a wealth of experience in the cryptocurrency field. Fork led Humaniq to a $5 million ICO in April, and has big plans to bring his mobile banking app to over two billion unbanked people around the world. Alex is a member of the board at Blockchain.community, author of the book “Bitcoin. More than money” and the founder of the Future Fintech accelerator. Fork organised an Ethereum conference with Vlad Martynov (Ethereum advisory board) and Vitalik Buterin (Ethereum founder), which was attended by over 500 banking professionals. Alex’s recent experience with his own startup, as well as his long experience advising startups, makes him an exceptional addition.

“Token Fund has an incredible team under CEO Vladimir Smerkis,” said Kaal, “with great depth of blockchain and crypto expertise that allows for the cross-fertilization of crypto startup ideas and implementation. Because TheToken.io invests across the spectrum in the crypto space they have an unparalleled overview of emerging trends in the crypto economy, as well as high level crypto business contacts that translate into superior returns for their clients. The team is also extremely professional and acts with great care while considering the ethical implications of business decisions. The team has a very bright future ahead of them. It will be possible to build on the foundation established by TheToken.io and create new crypto businesses. I cannot wait to see what we can accomplish in the not too distant future.”
