Keep Your Keys
Menlo users are always in custody of their private keys, and Menlo integrates with hardware wallets for safe storage.
Built on Ethereum
Menlo runs on the Ethereum network. Any token sale following the ERC-20 standard works on Menlo.
We list every company offering token financing on Ethereum.
Build a relationship
Chat with the team right on Menlo. All chats stored on a blockchain.
Schedule investment the moment it opens. Never miss a token sale.
Manage your tokens even when they’re secured in cold storage.
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.
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 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 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.
