“I like to think that this is the first time that a crypto company replaces a bank“, this is how yesterday’s event presenting Eidoo Crowd, organised by Roberto Gorini, founder and CEO of Noku, debuted, referring to the fact that Eidoo is now headquartered in the building where historically there have always been banks.
“Some say banks are a bit like phone booths. They are intended to be closed and replaced”.
Yesterday, 6th June 2019, in Lugano, Eidoo hosted a presentation of Eidoo Crowd, a new platform for launching ICOs and STOs.
“We are developing a platform that allows tokenising business models and assets such as bonds, shares, profit-sharing tokens, certificates of ownership and authenticity and other contracts […] Noku had as its most important development the Token Raise platform aimed at creating tokens and smart contracts and thus generating its own ICO; Eidoo instead had the ICO Engine for launching ICOs. Eidoo Crowd was born from the two platforms in order to integrate blockchain technology in crowdfunding. We do not collect the investments and do not hold the tokens and so from an IT point of view we have no security or legal problems because we do not have involvement as custodians or as intermediaries“.
The website is already online and it is already possible to see on the homepage which will be the first two projects to be launched, as Gorini explains.
“The next two STOs that we will launch in the coming months are those of our own Poseidon group and that of Luxochain, which are already on the platform for display, ready to be launched“.
Eidoo, in fact, is part of the Swiss holding called Poseidon Group which includes more than 10 crypto and blockchain companies.
“Today the Poseidon group is made up of many companies and I think it has a very important part to play in Switzerland and especially in the Canton of Ticino. The group recently acquired, Noku, of which I am founder and CEO, and Oraclize/Provable, of Thomas Bertani. We are developing many services and products, even though the current time is not ideal. But despite the crypto winter, we have created a large community of tens of thousands of users”.
In particular, Eidoo Crowd will allow creating tokens in a couple of clicks, to then start raising funds through an ICO or an STO, with the integrated KYC and AML procedure and with all the necessary advice in terms of token economy, marketing and technical and legal assistance.
A recent STO report revealed a 130% increase during the first quarter of 2019: 47 security token offerings were conducted between January and March, compared to the 20 STOs in the last quarter of 2018.
This is a market that is certainly expanding, and for now the United States of America, the UK and Switzerland are expected to be among the major leaders.
