Last Monday was an unusual but awesome day for Mode – we completed our successful IPO on the London Stock Exchange! It marked a historical moment for everyone in the Mode team as we have been working extremely hard for months to make it happen and we did!
It was also an incredibly proud moment as Mode became one of the first companies in the world to IPO with a consumer digital-asset offering, a huge milestone for the fintech and crypto industries. So, last Monday was indeed a pretty proud moment for us all, we’re not going to lie.
At Mode, we have always wanted to do things differently. Our aim from inception has been to build a place where traditional and digital finance could work together to create the best kind of partnership and become one. Whilst doing this, we also committed to doing it in a regulated and compliant manner.
With the growth of cryptocurrency, and especially Bitcoin, it’s become more important than ever to open access to digital assets to not just the passionate but also the first-time buyers of this incredible new asset. As the world of Bitcoin grows, and more doors open around the world, we want to make sure we’re at the forefront of supporting the growth of Bitcoin and with it education amongst everyday investors. Our daily goal is to encourage cryptocurrency to be more understood and widely accepted in the traditional finance world.
There is still confusion and misconceptions surrounding Bitcoin and the possibilities that lie ahead for the asset and we’re here to help break down those barriers and to create a network that understands its potential. We want to bring transparency and credibility to this space primarily in the UK but also the rest of the world.
In regard to what the future holds for Mode, well, you’re going to have to watch this space. We’re now using our position to design a payments and loyalty solution that we believe will transform the consumer-business relationship forever. We want to build a platform where consumers and businesses can connect with each other in a way that wasn’t possible before. We want to build the financial world of the future.
