Published

on

Business incubators play a vital role in the development of emerging technologies. They provide a fertile ground where the best ideas have a chance in the market, counting on the expertise of seasoned entrepreneurs, access to capital, talent, and the rapport of valuable partnerships. However, the concept is yet to be ported successfully to the rapidly-evolving industry of blockchain and digital assets.

GDA Ventures

GDA Group of Companies announced GDA Ventures as an effort to bring these same opportunities to the best startups in the new field. The incubator expands on GDA’s leading capital markets ecosystem by offering institutional markets a bridge into valuable and disruptive technologies. Likewise, blockchain and digital asset ventures benefit from a direct roadmap and all the resources needed to build better products that achieve high growth.

The new subsidiary rests upon GDA’s record of success working with both Fortune 500 companies, as well as over 20 digital asset protocols built on Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Hyperledger. Besides the traditional benefits of incubators, these experiences put GDA in a unique position. It can provide case studies and executable guidance to the best performing teams while allowing investors to participate in startups that count on first-mover advantage.

Incubators can foster the lasting success of any nascent industry. GDA Ventures takes the success of this model into exciting new territory.

The GDA Group is one of the first blockchain firms in North America. It was originally founded in Toronto, Canada and New York City. It has expanded globally and now consists of several firms focused in diverse areas of the blockchain and digital asset industries. They include capital markets, digital asset offerings & capital formation, trading & liquidity, consulting, development and other related services.

12 Peers Capital Markets Purchases DigitalBits XDB Token

Published

on

12 Peers Capital Markets , a broker-dealer and capital markets firm has announced its support for DigitalBits, a blockchain protocol focused on consumer digital assets such as loyalty points, rewards, and branded stablecoins.  The traditional market brokerage firm has purchased the DigitalBits XDB token, after recently announcing “a new found investment thesis focused on identifying blockchain projects that improve efficiencies across global markets,” it said in today’s announcement.

DigitalBits is an enterprise-grade blockchain protocol for supporting consumer digital assets, specifically branded currencies.  The company believes that branded currencies play an integral role in driving consumer behavior, but many of these programs are dated by today’s technological standards.  “These limitations have stifled value transfer, resulting in the accumulation of large amounts of idle capital – in 2017 US corporations held in excess of $100 billion in unused points liability,” the DigitalBits experts explain.  

The DigitalBits blockchain supports tokenization of existing and new consumer digital assets.  The XDB Foundation, which was formed earlier this year, is a neutral agnostic non-profit organization to enhance the DigitalBits blockchain and ecosystem, engage partnerships and building a robust ecosystem for users. Commenting on the 12 Peers Capital Market announcement, XDB Foundation’s Managing Director Michael Gord said that it is great to see traditional firms show interest in blockchain technology. …

The NASDAQ Entrepreneurial Center hand-picked several advanced projects and companies to provide individualized mentorship and executive coaching in an effort to support tech startups working on various COVID-19 solutions. As part of the program, the NASDAQ Tower in Times Square broadcasted its Milestone Makers COVID-19 Solutions Cohort live last Wednesday.  

Time-tested communications and manufacturing supply chains have been significantly damaged this year due to the pandemic. This is why manufacturing blockchain company SyncFab was one of the headliners at the conference. Supply chains have become all but non-responsive, and innovative solutions are being prioritized.

SyncFab has built and launched an advanced blockchain platform for supporting smart supply chains and allowing users to source, procure, track, secure, and pay for precision spare parts. Led by Forbes Business Council Member Jeremy Goodwin, SyncFab brings real-time capacity savings opportunities alongside addressing the billion-dollar pain points in manufacturing supply chains. It connects automotive, aerospace, and medical manufacturers with more cost-effective suppliers using blockchain-secured transactions.

“In 2020 the time has finally arrived for industry to jettison the limitations of old-fashioned manual procurement processes,” said SyncFab CEO Jeremy Goodwin in his presentation during the conference. He added that “looking forward, we [SyncFab] will expand supplier coverage, add new supplier response incentive and purchase order programs, and continue to innovate post-procurement blockchain traceability features” to meet shifting needs in the industry.
