NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, April 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- FanMint™ and Black Manta Capital Partners® (“BMCP”) announced today that they have entered into an agreement to jointly perform compliant international issuances of digital securities. For FanMint issuers electing to perform offerings abroad, BMCP will syndicate FanMint deals in the European Union.
“We have always envisioned FanMint as having international reach, and our partnership with Black Manta is the first step in achieving that goal,” said William B. Heyn, President of FanMint and CEO of Tritaurian Capital, Incorporated (“Tritaurian Capital”). “Fandom is a global phenomenon, so this relationship enhances what our issuers are able to achieve.”
FanMint is the first digital securities issuance platform fully compliant with United States regulations. Built on the Ethereum blockchain, FanMint uses smart contracts to facilitate tokenized debt and equity issuances under Regulations CF, D, S, and A with a focus on the growing "Influencer" asset class. FanMint has partnered with FINRA-registered broker-dealer Tritaurian Capital to utilize their unique licensure, and with Akemona Incorporated ("Akemona") to use their smart contract based and SEC-approved crowdfunding portal, to operate in the United States.
BMCP performs security token offerings for startups, small- and medium-sized businesses, real estate developers, and commodity owners. BMCP is the 100% owner of BMCP GmbH, a financial service institution regulated by the German Financial Market Authority which provides regulated financial brokerage services using blockchain technology in accordance with the European MiFID II regime.
“With these partnerships, FanMint can now amplify its reach into a new jurisdiction,” said Alexander Rapatz, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at BMCP. “Issuers on the platform will have access to additional capital from European investors when performed side-by-side with Regulation Crowdfunding in the U.S. For Influencers with a global fan base, fan engagement can be increased across borders.”
For syndicated deals, FanMint issuers will have the opportunity to execute side-by-side offerings hosted on BMCP’s platform. BMCP will be responsible for performing “Know Your Customer” (“KYC”) and anti-money laundering (“AML”) identification procedures for individual and institutional investors who wish to participate, including video identification procedures as required by German regulatory laws.
The FanMint platform is expected to go live in the first half of 2021. A native “FAN Token™” powering the platform is anticipated to be offered in the same period. FAN Tokens will be compliant digital securities that allow for direct participation in the success of the ecosystem through potential dividends, voting rights, discounts, preferential benefits, and experiential opportunities. BMCP is expected to facilitate the sale of FAN in the European Union to international investors.
