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.”

Found­ed in 1771 as one of the most tra­di­tion­al stock exchanges in the world, the Vien­na Stock Exchange today is a mod­ern, cus­tomer and mar­ket ori­ent­ed infra­struc­ture com­pa­ny that oper­ates the stock mar­kets in Vien­na and Prague.

As Black Man­ta Cap­i­tal Part­ners we reach out to both new and tra­di­tion­al play­ers like the Vien­na Stock Exchange.

Berlin — Finoa and and Black Man­ta Cap­i­tal Part­ners (BMCP) are pleased to announce that they entered into a coop­er­a­tion to devel­op the space of tok­enized secu­ri­ties for insti­tu­tion­al and pro­fes­sion­al investors and HNWI. 

Finoa is a lead­ing insti­tu­tion­al-grade cus­tody and asset-ser­vic­ing solu­tion for Dig­i­tal Assets, cus­tomized to Insti­tu­tion­al Investors, HNWI and cor­po­ra­tions. Ref­er­ence cus­tomers include Bankhaus Sche­ich, INVAO Group, Inflec­tion VC and Crane VC. Finoa is delight­ed to fur­ther col­lab­o­rate with Black Man­ta Cap­i­tal Part­ners pro­vid­ing a secure and com­pli­ant cus­tody solu­tion for issuances on the Black Man­ta Cap­i­tal Part­ners’ plat­form, start­ing with the Real Estate STO Tigris S17A in Berlin.

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.”

Christo­pher May, Co-Founder and Man­ag­ing Direc­tor at Finoa: “We are pleased to sup­port the growth of the token econ­o­my by part­ner­ing with Black Man­ta Cap­i­tal Part­ners for the Tigris S17A project and are look­ing for­ward to many fur­ther excit­ing projects along the line.”

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.”

BERLIN, DUBLIN, HONG KONG, LUXEMBOURG.

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 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.”
