Los Angeles, CA, October 16, 2017 — Sensay, a Los Angeles-based tech company that specializes in building distributed messaging systems using AI, chatbots and conversation analysis–funded by Tim Draper, Norwest, and Greycroft–today announced new prominent individual and institutional contributors Blockchain Capital, Galaxy Investment Partners, Binary Financial, Gil Penchina, and HyperChain Capital are participating in the SENSE token pre-sale.  

Galaxy Investment Partners are the leading global cryptocurrency asset managers run by ex-Fortress star Michael Novogratz; Binary Financial, an investment management company in the digital asset space led by Jonathan Teo and Harry Yeh; Blockchain Capital, the premier venture capital firm investing in blockchain enabled technologies and HyperChain Capital, one of the premiere digital asset hedge funds.

"The founding team has an amazing amount of talent and vision to move markets. Their humans as a service protocol will enable an explosion of new services, and I'm excited to be a supporter of SENSE,” said Gil Penchina.

Gil Penchina, contributing to the pre-sale and joining the SENSE Advisory Board, is a serial entrepreneur, angel and cryptocurrency investor, whose portfolio of 100+ startups includes Brave, Ripple, Filecoin, Civic, EOS and he was actually an angel investor in the first cryptocurrency startup, PayPal in 1999. He is currently a partner at Ridge Ventures. Prior to Ridge, he co-founded Fastly, was the CEO of Wikia, Inc., and spent eight years at eBay, rising to the role of vice president and general manager of eBay's international business. Gil also worked at Bain & Co and General Electric.

“We know we are at a major watershed moment of innovation in blockchain and digital asset adoption and are thrilled to see the individual and institutional investors playing a role in this moment are also supporting SENSE. Bringing human capital technologies to the forefront is what we are so excited about and they are participants in helping to make this happen,” said Crystal Rose, Sensay CEO.

Sensay previously closed $6 million in two funding rounds led by Norwest Venture Partners, with participation from Greycroft Partners, Draper Associates, Quest Venture Partners, Amplify LA and other investors.

The SENSE token sale has set a new precedent for fairness by making the presale available to developers first and has committed to raising the bar for financial transparency and reporting.

Due to the likely timing of the Ethereum Byzantium fork and continued significant interest in the SENSE token presale, the public token sale will now be held on October 23, 2017 at 9:00AM EST.
