The second investment round of Waves Platform’s Vostok project will close on 31 May, according to a press statement by Waves Platform. The company plans to sell up to 10% of the project, raising $120m at an estimated capitalisation of $1.2bn. London-based investment group Dolfin will structure and coordinate the deal.

The Vostok project aims to enable large enterprises and public institutions to build the foundation of next-generation digital infrastructure, the company says.

The first investment round for $120m with the total valuation of the Vostok project $600m closed in December 2018, the press statement says. The share of 20% of the project Vostok was received by private and institutional investors, who were selected according to their potential benefit to the development of the plan.
