Madrid, November 30th, 2021 — Spanish platform Bit2Me continues to add top-level professionals to its staff. In this case, Bit2Me has incorporated Koh Onozawa and Dean Thomas as CEO and Senior Advisor, respectively.
Their job will be to drive the growth and expansion of B2M, the utility token developed by Bit2Me, which went on sale in its last ICO phase for €0.02 and currently has a value of €0,12. They will do so together with Leif Ferreira, founder and CEO of the company, and Andrei Manuel, co-founder and COO.
To strengthen the development of B2M, the company will also hire another 30 people in the next 12 months exclusively for the B2M token team, all of them being highly specialized profiles in the crypto world. The goal is for them to work in Bit2Me’s offices in Spain. The company will continue to reach agreements with companies to expand the ecosystem of its utility token and Bit2Me products such as Bit2Me Pay, as it has already done with Restalia’s brand, 100 Montaditos, and with Mastercard, Prosegur or Minterest, among others.
B2M is listed on the Uniswap decentralized marketplace, as well as on MEXC and Bittrex. Bit2Me’s goal is to continue its integration with other platforms to reach a total of 30 million people and users of centralized exchanges in Asia and Europe.
Koh Onozawa Martinez is a technology entrepreneur with an extensive track record as an investor and advisor to prestigious startups, both in Europe and the United States. At only 26 years old, in 2016, he became part of Forbes Asia’s first annual 30 Under 30 list. In addition, in 2015 he was a finalist of the EY Entrepreneur of the Year Awards. This year Onozawa has received the Lifetime Achievement Award from Sir Anthony Ritossa in Dubai for his “outstanding vision, dedication and success”. Onozawa has also made several presentations for TEDx.
Dean Thomas is Global Head of Institutional Capital at Polygon (formerly MATIC), a project focused on developing scalable solutions for blockchain projects on the Ethereum network. Thomas was a key player in the first merger of one blockchain network into another (Polygon with Hermez Network).
In addition, just a few weeks ago, Amun, which is dedicated to the development of decentralized products (DeFi), launched the Polygon Ecosystem Index Price (PECO) token, a project in which Thomas also had a relevant participation. The token is available through the platform itself, Amun. PECO is an index designed to track the performance of the top projects on Polygon.
Benefits for B2M Token Holders
The B2M token provides different benefits to its holders. It grants bonuses of up to 90% on transactions on Bit2Me and reimbursements for purchases made with the Bit2Me Card in its partner network. In addition, its holders have governance capabilities and receive consultations on future features that will be offered on the platform, among other advantages.
B2M has made history in the world of cryptocurrencies. Between August and September Bit2Me launched a three-stage ICO in which the token managed to raise a total of €17.5 million in less than three minutes, to which must be added an additional €2.5 million raised in a previous private round. This is a historic milestone in our country, Spain. The B2M token can be purchased from the Bit2Me website.

Bit2Me’s platform is made up of 120 people. The recruitment of highly specialized and internationally recognized talent is the basis of Bit2Me to offer the best products and services.
