Our Mission

Over $4 Billion dollars to date has been raised though token sales, even surpassing traditional seed and VC investment. We believe token financing is one of the most important technologies since the Internet itself. Our mission is to make investing in token sales easy, simple, and secure.

Dear Startups,

Finding investors isn't cheap or easy. Many companies have to raise millions to launch a token sale. Menlo lets you directly reach investors.
Menlo Crypto Investors

Meet Investors

Menlo lets you directly message investors. Investors post a price to read your message, and you pay them for their attention. Entrepreneurs spend 1/3 of their time fund raising. We think your time is better spent building your company.

Secure Token Sales

Millions have been stolen by hackers by tricking investors to send crypto to them in a token sale. Menlo lets you safely send your token sale address directly to investors, cutting out opportunities for phishing attacks.

Menlo is fundamentally decentralized


Fundamentally Decentralized


Menlo is built on a database which is distributed among users, not hosted on a single central server. Users get paid in Menlo Token to host the database. We have the security guarantees of a public blockchain, with the performance of a centralized database.

The First “Smart” Token Wallet


The Menlo "smart wallet" is the first ERC20 compatible wallet designed specifically for token sales. Set Menlo to send funds to a token sale the moment it starts. Your KYC/AML information is fully managed.
