11 Nov BnkToTheFuture and Coinstreet Partners Make Strategic Investment In BMI Capital, a US SEC Registered Broker Dealer, To Bring Security Tokens To Institutional Investors In The US And Asia
We are excited to announce a strategic investment in US Broker Dealer BMI Capital International LLC (“BMI Capital”). Through this investment, we aim to reach a wider pool of investors and launch new US compliant Security Token Offerings.
BnkToTheFuture has made three strategic investments / acquisitions in 2019 after selling its stake in Keystone Capital Corporation to Coinbase last year including the UK FCA Appointed Representative Diacle, the self-custodial security token exchange Altcoin.io and now the holding company of BMI Capital. BnkToTheFuture also brought in Coinstreet Partners who specialises in arranging institutional investor roadshows across Asia.
BnkToTheFuture was the very first securities business in the crypto markets launching shortly after Bitcoin in 2010 and now has a community of 85,000+ Professional Qualified Investors from all over the world who have invested almost $800m in funding rounds listed on its Online Investment Platform and holds equity in Coinbase, Circle, Blockchain.com, Kraken, BitStamp, BitFinex, ShapeShift, BitPay, Ripple Labs and over 100 others.
“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 BMI Capital we have built the infrastructure to allow for compliant security token offerings with a range of new products we will be launching in 2020. Our investment in the holding company of BMI Capital was designed to align our interests so we can drive the sector forward faster with products that make global securities law compliance easier to comply with.” – Simon Dixon (CEO & Co-Founder of BnkToTheFuture).
“While the market is at its early stage, STO will be a cost effective and efficient way for solid corporations for seeking growth funding, and for established institutions to bring additional liquidity to their asset portfolio through tokenizing process. Further to our strong foundation in Asia, we are very excited to expand our business to US market through collaboration with BMI Capital and BnkToTheFuture”, said Samson (SAM) Lee, Founder & CEO of Coinstreet Partners.
“We are really excited to work with BnkToTheFuture and Coinstreet Partners as a strategic investor to build the next wave of disruption coming to capital markets. BMI Capital has strong traditional investment banking experience and a vast institutional investor network in both the US and Asia regions. We look forward to working with BnkToTheFuture and Coinstreet Partners much more closely to bring token-based corporate finance to a much deeper pool of institutional investors in the US and Asia as the industry grows.” – Robert Trapp, CEO of BMI Capital.
BnkToTheFuture, Coinstreet Partners and BMI Capital will now work together more closely for on-boarding US and Asian institutional investors that wish to invest in the equity and securities tokens of crypto and FinTech companies, as well as provide corporate finance advisory services for security token offerings (STO) to a deeper pool of qualifying investors.
