BLACK MANTA & TOKENY SOLUTIONS ANNOUNCE FIRST BAFIN-LICENSED MULTI-STO SOLUTION

Black Man­ta Cap­i­tal Part­ners S.à r.l. (Lux­em­bourg) and Toke­ny S.à r.l. (Lux­em­bourg) are proud to announce their strate­gic coop­er­a­tion in build­ing a ful­ly com­pli­ant Mul­ti-STO-Plat­form for Euro­pean Mar­ket. The Black Man­ta Invest­ment Plat­form is run by BMCP’s Berlin oper­at­ing enti­ty. The BMCP GmbH received its licence with­in the MiFID II regime by the Ger­man finan­cial reg­u­la­tor BaFin, ear­li­er this sum­mer.

The two part­ners will launch a ful­ly com­pli­ant Mul­ti-STO-Plat­form, cater­ing to both pro­fes­sion­al and retail investors. The Secu­ri­ty Token Offer­ings will range from real estate projects, small and medi­um enter­pris­es, and grown up star­tups to tok­enized com­modi­ties and funds. 

Toke­ny Solu­tions, the Lux­em­bourg-based fin­tech that has recent­ly announced fundrais­ing from Euronext, will pro­vide the white-label tok­eniza­tion plat­form whilst Black Man­ta Cap­i­tal is com­mit­ted to deliv­er the high­est stan­dard in com­pli­ance and investor pro­tec­tion as a reg­u­lat­ed Finan­cial Ser­vices Insti­tu­tion with­in the Euro­pean Union. 

Luc Falempin, CEO of Toke­ny on the coop­er­a­tion: “Work­ing with Black Man­ta Cap­i­tal Part­ners allows the both of us to focus on what we do best. We pro­vide the insti­tu­tion­al grade tok­eniza­tion solu­tions for every BMCP offer­ing and this allows them to focus on what they do best, which is build­ing their investor com­mu­ni­ty.

Chris­t­ian Platzer, Co-Founder of BMCP: “Toke­ny Solu­tions is one of the top glob­al tech­nol­o­gy providers in tok­eniza­tion. Hav­ing worked close­ly with the Toke­ny Solu­tions team for sev­er­al months, we can say: we speak the same lan­guage when it comes to the prospects for our indus­try and togeth­er we could not be more pos­i­tive about the oppor­tu­ni­ties for secu­ri­ty tok­eniza­tion in Europe and around the world.” 

BMCP also select­ed Toke­ny Solu­tions for their T‑REX token stan­dard for tok­enized secu­ri­ties, which ensures com­pli­ant trans­fer­abil­i­ty. This stan­dard includes three key pil­lars, the iden­ti­ty man­age­ment sys­tem, a set of val­i­da­tion cer­tifi­cates, and the trans­fer man­ag­er. A decen­tral­ized val­ida­tor sys­tem allows trad­ing via mul­ti­ple exchanges.

Digi­Max Glob­al Solu­tions and Black Man­ta Cap­i­tal Part­ners enter Col­lab­o­ra­tion Agree­ment

Toron­to / Lux­em­bourg — 09, 2019 (Access Wire) DigiCrypts Blockchain Solu­tions Inc., (CSE:DIGI) now doing busi­ness as DIGIMAX GLOBAL SOLUTIONS (the “Com­pa­ny” or “Digi­Max”) and Black Man­ta Cap­i­tal Part­ners (“Black Man­ta” or “BMCP”), based in Lux­em­bourg, are pleased to announce that they entered into a cross Col­lab­o­ra­tion Agree­ment.

 

In August 2019, a 100% sub­sidiary of Black Man­ta, the Ger­man based BMCP GmbH, was award­ed a license by the Fed­er­al Finan­cial Super­vi­so­ry Author­i­ty (“BaFin”) as finan­cial ser­vice insti­tu­tion in order to issue and man­age Secu­ri­ty Token Offer­ings (“STOs”) in Ger­many. BaFin is a lead­ing finan­cial super­vis­ing author­i­ty across Europe. With over 2,600 employ­ees, this reg­u­la­to­ry body over­sees a vari­ety of indus­tries rang­ing from finance, to bank­ing, insur­ance, and more.

The approval received allows BMCP to offer clients reg­u­lat­ed ser­vices sur­round­ing secu­ri­ty token offer­ings. BMCP has indi­cat­ed that they intend for this plat­form to func­tion as a com­pre­hen­sive offer­ing – mean­ing that they will pro­vide clients with all the nec­es­sary ser­vices from start to fin­ish, through the secu­ri­ty tok­eniza­tion process.

Digi­Max, as a glob­al con­sul­tant to com­pa­nies seek­ing to issue STO’s and oth­er forms of dig­i­tal secu­ri­ties, is pleased to be part­nered with Black Man­ta, as togeth­er the part­ner­ship can bring clients from around the world to have their dig­i­tal secu­ri­ties list­ed in Europe.   Digi­Max has planned to increase its Euro­pean pres­ence in late 2019 and is pleased to be able to work with Black Man­ta as a crit­i­cal step in this process.

“Digi­Max rec­og­nizes Black Man­ta as one of the lead­ing licensed ser­vice providers in Europe capa­ble of assist­ing clients to raise cap­i­tal and to list dig­i­tal secu­ri­ties in Europe, start­ing with Ger­many”, said Digi­Max CEO, Chris Carl.  “We respect how dif­fi­cult it is to gain these approvals from the finan­cial super­vi­so­ry author­i­ties in Europe, and to have done so rep­re­sents a sub­stan­tial accom­plish­ment on the path lead­ing toward glob­al dig­i­ti­za­tion of secu­ri­ties. We are excit­ed about work­ing with Black Man­ta on sev­er­al such projects in the imme­di­ate future.”

“Tok­eniza­tion in the core finan­cial field of secu­ri­ties will – for sure – bring par­a­dig­mat­ic change to the glob­al finan­cial mar­kets. While Black Man­ta wants to be ‘bou­tique’ in its begin­nings and run ‘hand­picked’ STOs only, our strat­e­gy is glob­al from day one: the first step is to link Europe and Asia on one blockchain-based invest­ment plat­form.  For this rea­son, we are excit­ed to work with Digi­Max who has already built a great glob­al net­work of par­tic­i­pants that can take advan­tage of our new­ly licensed plat­form,” said Man­ag­ing Part­ner of Black Man­ta Cap­i­tal Part­ners, Alexan­der Rap­atz.

Black Man­ta Group & BLU SWARM Group signed an MOU for com­pre­hen­sive coop­er­a­tion in asset Tok­eniza­tion

With sign­ing a com­pre­hen­sive Mem­o­ran­dum of Under­stand­ing on the 19th of July in 2019, both inter­na­tion­al groups lay the foun­da­tion for a strong and long-term coop­er­a­tion with the focus on asset-tok­eniza­tion of medi­um and large projects.

 

BLACK MANTA Cap­i­tal Part­ners S.à.r.l. Lux­em­bourg, and BLU PRINT AG, Liecht­en­stein, mem­ber of BLU SWARM Group, focus on state-of-the-art tok­eniza­tion projects in the reg­u­lat­ed glob­al seg­ment of the secu­ri­ty token. 

BLU PRINT AG focus­es on the tok­eniza­tion of intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty rights as immaterial/intangible assets, which are deliv­ered by affil­i­at­ed BLU SWARM GLOBAL IP Man­ag­er. While BLACK MANTA offers Tok­eniza­tion as a Ser­vice as a one-stop agency to third par­ties in select­ed asset class­es like com­pa­nies, com­modi­ties & real estate. 

After sign­ing the MOU, both part­ners are now work­ing on a com­pre­hen­sive coop­er­a­tion agree­ment. One focus will be the tok­eniza­tion of BLU SWARM´s imple­men­ta­tion projects from large IP Devel­op­ment Funds based on cus­tomized pri­vate con­tract­ing mod­els with the IP-own­ers. Those BLU NODE Funds can clus­ter dozens or hun­dreds of IP-rights and achieve eval­u­a­tions in the bil­lion CHF range dur­ing their glob­al roll­out. One cur­rent exam­ple is the already con­tract­ed FLAVOREX IP Fund as a joint ven­ture of Fla­vorex Life Sci­ence Group in Hol­land and BLU SWARM Group. 

In the cause of those vast IP devel­op­ment Funds, mul­ti­ple imple­men­ta­tion projects are gen­er­at­ed in form of prov­ing and devel­op­ment sites, com­mer­cial light­house projects & huge glob­al pro­duc­tive sites man­aged togeth­er with local part­ners. 

BLACK MANTA and BLU SWARM plan to inte­grate their process­es to best select and ser­vice those imple­men­ta­tion projects on the state-of-the-art BLACK MANTA tok­eniz­ing plat­form. 

Oth­er parts of the coop­er­a­tion may com­pre­hend coop­er­a­tion in both affil­i­ate net­works, shar­ing ser­vices and col­lab­o­ra­tion in oth­er projects.

Secu­ri­ty Token Offer­ings on a reg­u­lat­ed plat­form: Black Man­ta Cap­i­tal Part­ners received BaFin licence

As of August 1st 2019, Black Man­ta Cap­i­tal Part­ners’ Berlin oper­at­ing enti­ty, BMCP GmbH, received the licence with­in the MiFID II regime by the Ger­man finan­cial reg­u­la­tor BaFin to run a Mul­ti-STO-Plat­form and act as a One-Stop-Agency for Secu­ri­ty Token Offer­ings, out of Ger­many, with­in the Euro­pean Union.

The appli­ca­tion process was sup­port­ed by the law firm LUTHER, Berlin et alt, notably the part­ner Dr. Rolf Kob­abe, Ham­burg. 

 

BERLIN — FRANKFURT AM MAIN. As of August 1st 2019 and after 9 months of intense and fruit­ful pro­ce­dures with the Ger­man reg­u­la­tor, BMCP GmbH is now a Finan­cial Ser­vices Insti­tu­tion accord­ing to § 1 Abs. 1a Satz 2 Nr. 1 KWG (Kred­itwe­sen­ge­setz), reg­u­lat­ed by the Ger­man Finan­cial Mar­ket Author­i­ty (BaFin): this in order to pro­vide reg­u­lat­ed finan­cial bro­ker­age ser­vices (i.e. Wert­pa­pierver­mit­tlung & Abschlussver­mit­tlung) using Blockchain tech­nol­o­gy in accor­dance with the MiFID II regime. The 100% sub­sidiary of the Lux­em­bourg based hold­ing enti­ty Black Man­ta Cap­i­tal Part­ners S.à.r.l. is one of the first Euro­pean enti­ties grant­ed this licence for blockchain based finan­cial ser­vices. 

With so-called Secu­ri­ty Tok­eniza­tion, BMCP GmbH con­verts rights to an asset into a dig­i­tal token, cre­at­ing intel­li­gent invest­ment con­tracts on a blockchain. This inno­va­tion in finan­cial prod­ucts cre­ates com­plete­ly new access to cap­i­tal for small and medi­um- sized enter­pris­es, real estate projects, star­tups, com­mod­i­ty mar­kets or funds — as well as new access to invest­ments for new investors. The issuance of such secu­ri­ties using blockchain tech­nol­o­gy is a new busi­ness mod­el ful­ly cov­ered by the pro­vi­sions of the MiFID II Direc­tive on Finan­cial Instru­ments (2014/65 /EU). The oper­a­tive start of the invest­ment plat­form with the first Token Offer­ings is planned for ear­ly Q4/2019. The diver­si­fied team behind BMCP are senior pro­fes­sion­als with bank­ing, VC and cor­po­rate back­ground.  

Apart from the licenced oper­at­ing enti­ty in Berlin, Black Man­ta Cap­i­tal Part­ners dri­ve the mar­ket launch of their invest­ment plat­form also through BMCP Con­sult­ing in Vien­na and BMCP Lim­it­ed for inter­na­tion­al busi­ness devel­op­ment, based at the Mal­ta Stock Exchange in Val­let­ta. — The next strate­gic move will be the foun­da­tion of Black Man­ta Asia, in Sin­ga­pore, and the appli­ca­tion for a sim­i­lar licence with the Mon­e­tary Author­i­ty Sin­ga­pore.

Chris­t­ian Platzer, Co-Founder and Man­ag­ing Part­ner: “Tok­eniza­tion in the core finan­cial field of secu­ri­ties will — for sure — bring par­a­dig­mat­ic change to the glob­al finan­cial mar­kets.” — “While Black Man­ta Cap­i­tal Part­ners want to be ‘bou­tique’ in its begin­nings and run ‘hand­picked’ STOs only, our strat­e­gy is glob­al from day one: the first step is to link Europe and Asia on one blockchain-based invest­ment plat­form. There­fore we look already today into Sin­ga­pore.”
