SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Fresh off back-to-back featured presentations at this past week's Blockchain Expo in Santa Clara, California, Duc Pham, founder of FundCru (www.fundcru.com #blockchain4good @FundCru), is once again putting himself in the forefront of the cryptocurrency revolution: presenting the first-ever live-streaming of an ICO (initial coin offering) for his company. The FundCru ICO begins on Tuesday, December 5 at 13:00 UTC (8am Eastern / 5am Pacific): Token Symbol: FUND. Cryptocurrency accepted: ETH. There will be a bonus of 20% on the first 5M FUND or 24 hours. The target minimum for the ICO is 1M, with all ETH refunded if the goal is not met.

"FundCru is, literally, blockchain for good," says Pham who engineered FundCru as a seamless user-friendly way to assist charities in raising money with a larger percentage than is typical for most e-commerce transactions. "Our network of merchants allows consumers to help their favorite causes just by accessing their favorite merchants and businesses. It's that simple."
Founded in 2015, FundCru is a blockchain-powered fundraising platform that funds causes through e-commerce transactions and direct donations. FundCru distinguishes itself from other fundraising platforms by supporting both cryptocurrency and fiat money on all transactions, providing fundraisers with a large percentage (typically 25%) of gross sales from eCommerce transactions, and forgoing platform fees for donations. FundCru aims to use its business model and blockchain technology to provide fundraisers with a wealth of additional revenue sources, merchants with significantly improved outreach and marketing, and supporters with more ways to help their causes and themselves.
"FundCru is part of a brave new world of fundraising," continued Pham, a longtime promoter of cryptocurrency as a vehicle for doing good. "ICOs are part of that brave new world. My hope, as I said at last week's conference, is to take the pain – and the fear – out of blockchain."
Pham has been an entrepreneur and thought leader in the crypto and cybersecurity space for 15+ years. Pham was the founder and CTO of Vormetric, which was acquired by Thales for $400 million in 2015, a leading enterprise data encryption and cybersecurity, integrating encryption, access control, audit, and host integrity protection to provide a secure computing environment for high-profile clients in the financial services, banking sectors, healthcare, and the US federal government. Pham also led and won major OEM agreements with IBM (Database Encryption Expert) and Symantec (Media Server Encryption Option).
