Patron, a Japanese-based blockchain platform for influencer marketing, has successfully launched its public TGE after raising $15,000,000 in private and presale rounds. The public token sale will run from March 27th until April 26, incentivizing early birds with a 35% bonus.
Participants can contribute to the token sale using ETH, BTC, LTC, ERTC, and BCH. 240 million PAT is being sold through the ICO process while the remaining 160 million will be allocated to PATRON and will be strategically used for distribution to board members, advisors, and long-term development.
Since the public sale, the influencer marketing platform has carried the momentum with a global road trip raising awareness, as well as several major announcements to the platform.
