TokenCard’s successful token creation event on May 2nd also marked the release of a new ERC20 token called TKN. In another first, the May 2 crowdsale was funded by not only Ether, but also a variety of other ERC20 tokens. As added reward, Monolith partnerships with Digix Global, SingularDTV and Swarm City allowed their token holders to receive a 5% bonus on all contributions made in DGD, SINGLS and SWT.
