Simon Dixon who is the CEO & Co-Founder of BnkToTheFuture commented on the recent strategic investment on Diacle:
“In 2010 we started our mission to allow investors to buy equity in companies building the future of finance. We provided an opportunity for our community to invest online in a handful of unicorns and cryptocurrency exchanges. We see a similar trend with security tokens and together with Diacle we have built the infrastructure to allow for compliant security token offerings. Our investment in Diacle was designed to align our interests so we can drive the sector forward faster with two proven teams that have track records of bringing crypto-based security offerings to market.”
Diacle has advised and developed many firsts in the cryptocurrency industry
- Structuring the first regulated token sale with Cardano in 2015, raising $50m.
- Obtaining the first and only licence for a crypto-based lottery in the Isle of Man for Quanta.
- Obtaining the first Payment Licence for a crypto business in the UK for Bitpesa.
- Securing the first crypto derivatives licence for Crypto-Facilities which was sold to Kraken for $100m.
John Thompson CEO of Diacle Limited also commented:
“We are really excited to work with BnkToTheFuture as a strategic investor to build the next wave of disruption coming to capital markets. Diacle has been helping crypto & blockchain projects with licensing, compliance and financing since 2013 and look forward to working with BnkToTheFuture much more closely to bring token-based corporate finance to a much deeper pool of investors as the industry grows.”
What can they bring to the STO industry?
Both BnkToTheFuture and Diacle aim to work closely on on-boarding UK and EU investors who wish to invest in equity or securities tokens of crypto/FinTech companies. They also aim provide corporate finance advisory services for security token offerings (STO) to a deeper pool of qualifying investors.
