COSIMO VENTURES AND SORS DIGITAL ASSETS INVEST IN BLACK MANTA CAPITAL PARTNERS, DEEPENING THE STRATEGIC RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE THREE PLAYERS IN THE USA, EUROPE, AND ASIA

BERLIN, BOSTON, DUBLIN, HONG KONG, LUXEMBOURG — In order to fur­ther deep­en their strate­gic coop­er­a­tion COSIMO Ven­tures and SORS Dig­i­tal Assets invest­ed into Black Man­ta Cap­i­tal Part­ners’ Hold­ing Com­pa­ny in Lux­em­bourg. The part­ner­ship and reach of the three firms is tru­ly glob­al — span­ning from Amer­i­ca, to Europe, to Asia. All three part­ners are pas­sion­ate­ly com­mit­ted to deliv­er on the promise of blockchain to all class­es of investors in all major finan­cial mar­kets in the world.

 

Con­nor Cantwell, COSIMO Ven­tures, Europe Part­ner: “We have been real­ly impressed by the Black Man­ta team, their domain exper­tise, and their inno­v­a­tive and game-chang­ing mind­set. They are deeply immersed in the world of tok­eniza­tion, and their Bafin reg­u­lat­ed plat­form is a wel­come addi­tion for investors, and opens up a new source of cap­i­tal for a wide range of busi­ness­es. The scope of the oppor­tu­ni­ty they are address­ing is glob­al, and they are unique­ly placed to deliv­er anoth­er step in the con­tin­ued pen­e­tra­tion of dis­trib­uted ledger tech­nol­o­gy into finan­cial ser­vices. The COSIMO X invest­ment in Black Man­ta is an excit­ing devel­op­ment and aligns square­ly with our blockchain and deep tech invest­ment focus.”

Stephen Browne, Chief Oper­at­ing Offi­cer Sors Dig­i­tal Assets: “ The finan­cial world has been upend­ed over the past decade. Banks are being dis­in­ter­me­di­at­ed from their cus­tomers by fin­tech com­pa­nies, new infra­struc­ture tech­nolo­gies are low­er­ing the bar­ri­er to entry for non-fin­techs, and a wave of excit­ing com­pa­nies are ris­ing up to tack­le com­plex and mean­ing­ful prob­lems. Part of this process of dis­in­ter­me­di­a­tion has been the advent of blockchain finance, tok­enized secu­ri­ties and secu­ri­ty tokens. At Sors Dig­i­tal Assets we under­stand that Black Man­ta oper­ates at the very top of the grow­ing secu­ri­ty token water­fall. Reg­u­lat­ed by BaFin, the strongest finan­cial reg­u­la­to­ry author­i­ty in Europe, with an explic­it license in dig­i­tal secu­ri­ties, Black Man­ta is the key play­er in the finan­cial and tech­no­log­i­cal growth of the tok­enized secu­ri­ties mar­ket. With this invest­ment Sors Dig­i­tal Assets is deep­en­ing its rela­tion­ship with Black Man­ta to offer Black Man­ta’s plat­form to the grow­ing num­bers of mar­ket entrants glob­al­ly. We believe Black Man­ta is des­tined to be an icon­ic com­pa­ny. Black Man­ta will be the lead­ing provider for tok­enized secu­ri­ties and we couldn’t be more excit­ed to part­ner with this all-star team to real­ize the dream of mak­ing tok­enized secu­ri­ties more acces­si­ble to every­one.”

Chris­t­ian Platzer, Co-Founder and Man­ag­ing Part­ner BMCP: “COSIMO X is one of the first dig­i­tal­ly secu­ri­tized ven­ture cap­i­tal funds in the world. They invest in blockchain, dig­i­tal bank­ing plat­forms, machine learn­ing, and dig­i­tal assets. In one sen­tence: They under­stand our ecosys­tems. — With Bri­an Elders being both the Founder of Sors Dig­i­tal Assets and a Part­ner at BMCP, bring­ing the two com­pa­nies clos­er togeth­er and rais­ing Sors Dig­i­tal Assets equi­ty posi­tion with us was a very log­i­cal step. — The three of us togeth­er, we can tru­ly oper­ate on a glob­al scale.”

Finoa is a lead­ing insti­tu­tion­al-grade cus­tody and asset-ser­vic­ing solu­tion for Dig­i­tal Assets, cus­tomized to Insti­tu­tion­al Investors, HNWI and cor­po­ra­tions.

Chris­t­ian Platzer, Co-Founder and Man­ag­ing Part­ner at BMCP: “Germany’s cryp­to cus­tody leg­is­la­tion trig­gered a wide range of ser­vice providers in the dig­i­tal assets space to apply for a BaFin licence. The Ger­man leg­is­la­tion was a cru­cial step to bring the con­fi­dence and liq­uid­i­ty of pro­fes­sion­al play­ers to the space. In Finoa we see a team that is not only well posi­tioned to cater to the high end investor class, but who bring also a mind­set to the table that will be need­ed to devel­op this rapid­ly emerg­ing mar­ket.”

SORS DIGITAL ASSETS AND BLACK MANTA CAPITAL PARTNERS ENTER STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP

Hong Kong, Dublin, Lux­em­bourg, Berlin, Vien­na — SORS Dig­i­tal Assets Lim­it­ed (SORS) and Black Man­ta Cap­i­tal Part­ners (BMCP), are pleased to announce that they entered into a cross Col­lab­o­ra­tion Agree­ment.

SORS is an Asian-Euro­pean dig­i­tal assets con­sult­ing com­pa­ny that has strong cus­tomer demand to struc­ture, cre­ate, issue, and trade STOs and oth­er forms of dig­i­tal secu­ri­ties. SORS is pleased to be part­nered with BMCP, as togeth­er the part­ner­ship can enable SORS cus­tomers to com­pli­ant­ly and effi­cient­ly issue dig­i­tal secu­ri­ties in Europe. 

BMCP’S oper­at­ing enti­ty BMCP GmbH, Berlin has a license issued by the Ger­man Fed­er­al Finan­cial Super­vi­so­ry Author­i­ty (“BaFin”) as a finan­cial ser­vice insti­tu­tion in order to issue and man­age Secu­ri­ty Token Offer­ings (“STOs”) in Ger­many. BaFin is a lead­ing finan­cial super­vi­so­ry author­i­ty across Europe. BMCP has since then pass­port­ed this license to sev­er­al coun­tries includ­ing the UK, Ire­land, Lux­em­bourg and Aus­tria. BMCP’s licence allows reg­u­lat­ed broker/dealer ser­vices for Euro­pean secu­ri­ties includ­ing dig­i­tal assets for inter­na­tion­al investors. 

The skillsets of SORS and Black Man­ta com­pli­ment each oth­er. Our col­lab­o­ra­tion will enable investors and issuers to ben­e­fit from the pow­er of blockchain tech­nol­o­gy to deliv­er prac­ti­cal results. Inex­pen­sive, safe and has­sle free — tech­ni­cal­ly enabled plat­forms such as Black Man­ta are the way for­ward, fea­tures accen­tu­at­ed when com­pared to tran­si­tion­al paper based process­es in the Covid / post Covid busi­ness envi­ron­ment”  said BMCP’s Part­ner and Founder of SORS, Bri­an Elders

The part­ner­ship between BMCP and SORS will cre­ate tremen­dous val­ue for projects requir­ing advi­so­ry, struc­tur­ing, and dis­tri­b­u­tion in addi­tion to the reg­u­la­to­ry, finan­cial, and tech­ni­cal sub­strate required to bring liq­uid­i­ty prop­er­ties to tra­di­tion­al­ly illiq­uid asset class­es, like ven­ture cap­i­tal, pri­vate equi­ty, and real estate”, said Co-Founder of SORS Dig­i­tal Assets, Andrew Broad. “The poten­tial for 24/7 Mar­kets, Frac­tion­al Own­er­ship, Rapid Set­tle­ment, Cost Reduc­tion, Liq­uid­i­ty and Mar­ket Depth, Auto­mat­ed Com­pli­ance and Asset Inter­op­er­abil­i­ty are excit­ing inno­va­tions and sig­nif­i­cant val­ue dri­vers which will move the secu­ri­ties indus­try to tru­ly end-to-end dig­i­tal mar­kets.

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 SORS who has already built a great glob­al net­work of par­tic­i­pants that can take advan­tage of our new­ly licensed plat­form,” said BMCP’s Co-Founder and Man­ag­ing Part­ner Alexan­der Rap­atz.

Chris­t­ian Platzer, Co-Founder and Man­ag­ing Part­ner: “With SORS oper­at­ing glob­al­ly out of Europe and Asia, our part­ner Bri­an Elders and his col­leagues from SORS will per­fect­ly sup­port BMCP’s strate­gic goal to build bridges between Asia and Europe in the Finan­cial Ser­vices busi­ness of Tok­eniza­tion; a busi­ness that is scal­ing faster month by month, but is in his­toric terms still in its infan­cy.”

BERLIN/WIEN. Die Tigris Immo­bilien GmbH ist seit Jahren ein erfol­gre­ich­er und erfahren­er Immo­bilienen­twick­ler auf dem Berlin­er Markt. Das Unternehmen bietet erst­ma­lig die Möglichkeit, dass sich auch Anleger ohne lokale Exper­tise an einem prof­itablen Immo­bilien-Pro­jekt beteili­gen, wie es nor­maler­weise nur Großin­ve­storen vor­be­hal­ten ist.

Das Pro­jekt hat eine Nutzfläche von rund 2.000 m² und beste­ht ca. zur Hälfte aus einem Alt­bau, der schon heute in gutem Zus­tand ist und wird durch ein neues, architek­tonisch mod­ernes Vorder­haus ergänzt. Die Gesamt­fer­tig­stel­lung ist für das Jahr 2022 geplant.

Nach Fer­tig­stel­lung wer­den die einzel­nen Wohnein­heit­en an Eigen­nutzer oder Inve­storen verkauft. Die Emis­sions-Struk­turierung wurde unterstützt von Recht­san­walt Oliv­er Stauber der Wiener Recht­san­walt­skan­zlei Stadler Völkel , sowie Hel­mut Beer , Part­ner der TPA Steuer­ber­atungs GmbH . Das Ges­tat­tungsver­fahren bei der BaFin für das öffentliche Ange­bot in Deutsch­land erforder­liche Wert­pa­pi­er-Infor­ma­tions­blatt begleit­ete Recht­san­walt Lutz Auf­fen­berg , LL.M. von der Frank­furter Kan­zlei FIN LAW . Die Prüfung des Infor­ma­tions­blattes nach Alt­FG erfol­gte durch die Wiener Beratungs- und Beteili­gungs­ge­sellschaft Venion­aire Cap­i­tal.

Im Lauf des Jahres wer­den weit­ere Emis­sio­nen auf der Black Man­ta Plat­tform erfol­gen, das Ange­bot wird sich dabei jedoch nicht auf Immo­bilien beschränken. Zur Zeit sind eine Rei­he weit­er­er STOs aus dem Start­up, KMU, sowie Fonds-Bere­ich in Pla­nung.

 

Peter Augustin , CEO der Tigris Gruppe :

“Als tech­nisch-inter­essiert­er Immo­bilienen­twick­ler habe ich sofort das Poten­tial der Tokenisierung erkan­nt. Es öff­nen sich für bei­de Seit­en — Bauträger als auch Inve­storen — ganz neue Möglichkeit­en der Finanzierung bzw. Anlage. Die Tokenisierung eines Immo­bilien-Pro­jek­tes hat ins­beson­dere den Vorteil, dass Anleger schon mit kleine Sum­men von der Wert­steigerung und der Sub­stanz der Immo­bilie prof­i­tieren kön­nen. ”

 

Alexan­der Rap­atz , Co-Founder und Man­ag­ing Part­ner von BMCP :

“Nicht nur auf­grund der aktuell gesamtwirtschaftlich schwieri­gen Lage kön­nen wir uns keinen ide­al­eren ersten STO für unsere Plat­tform vorstellen: ein wirtschaftlich attrak­tives Ange­bot eines soli­den und beständi­gen Immo­bilienen­twick­lers, und das in ein­er Berlin­er Pre­mi­um-Lage. Wir freuen uns, dass das Tigris Man­age­ment unsere Vision von dig­i­tal­en Wert­pa­pieren auf der Blockchain teilt und gemein­sam mit uns diesen STO real­isiert.”

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.”
