Block One Capital Inc. Initial Coin Offering (ICO) Investment Strategy & Addition Of Crypto Hedge Strategist
VANCOUVER, B.C., March 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Block One Capital Inc. (TSXV:BLOK) (OTCQB:BKPPF) (Frankfurt:ES3) (the “Company” or “Block One”), an investment company focused on high growth opportunities in the blockchain and digital currency mining sector, is pleased to announce progress on it’s private token sale and pre-initial coin offering (ICO) investment strategy.
Over the past several months, Block One’s investment team has travelled the globe to meet numerous blockchain companies across various industry sectors and to evaluate both the business strategy and token use case scenarios of these token issuers.
Utilizing the benefits of Block One’s Investment Issuer and Institutional investor status, the company has identified a number of unique pre-ICO utility token allocation opportunities. As a result, Block One will be able to realize institutionally biased ticket size bonuses and gain access to private token sale offerings that typically will not come available for public sale to individuals. Often, access and exposure to quality, high impact token opportunities are too challenging and complex for individual investors to source and evaluate. Block One attempts to address this disadvantage that individual investors face, gaining premium quality exposure to the token issuance space.
“Upon reviewing numerous deals, I am excited about the pipeline of private token sale and pre-ICO investment opportunities we have identified. They are representative of what we feel are compelling opportunities led by proven entrepreneurs,” said Mr. Sothi Thillairajah, CEO. “I look forward to conveying the specific token allocations Block One will make in the coming weeks.”
