Payment App Spot Raising $25M in November ICO

Virtually every business is being in some way effected by blockchain, whether they know it or not. From shipping and logistics, to agriculture and banking, businesses are finding that using blockchain can allow them to simplify and secure sensitive and complex processes. ICO’s have become the hottest new way for companies to raise capital, and Spot looks poised to be the next company to launch a blockbuster ICO.

Spot Systems, a Toronto-based payment processing start-up headed up by Alex Gillis, the young entrepreneur extraordinaire featured on Lion’s Den, is the first company to utilize blockchain technology to fundamentally shape the way that payments are made between businesses and individuals. Gillis also won Startup Canada’s 2015 “Young Entrepreneur of the Year” Speaking to The Edge Magazine, Gillis Said:

“Liquidity is the lifeblood of any business, especially e-commerce or drop shopping,” Gillis explains. “Having liquidity immediately available is a number one priority.”



Spot Systems, LTD. is raiding $25M through an ICO (initial coin offering) set to take place in November. The ICO is set to allow spot to bring their payment processing technology to global users.

Spot is poised to take on payment processing giants such as PayPal and Stripe by using blockchain to remove financial intermediaries, dramatically lowering to cost and waiting period that users experience when making and receiving payments.

Spot’s technology allows for users to make payments for just a 1.5% fee, (about 50% lower than the industry standard) and allows payments to happen instantly.

Alex Gillis has stacked the company with technical and industry expertise. The company’s CTO Kshitish Balhotra has worked on several previous ICO’s and has financial sector expertise. The company has also attracted several high profile advisory board members, including William Mougayar, of Virtual Capital Partners and Claudio Rojas of Hurt Capital.

The company plans to raise $25M in its November ICO, and is currently negotiating pre-ICO investments from institutional investors.
