“We are in the midst of a global crisis now, where assuring the safety of everyone is of utmost importance,” said Samson Lee, Founder and CEO of Coinstreet. “In Chinese, the word “CRISIS” is comprised of two characters “Wei” and “Ji”, meaning “danger” and “opportunity” respectively. Many investors are frustrated as the current environment creates certain obstacles to meeting with entrepreneurs and vetting various investment opportunities. Coinstreet is taking an active role in this market crisis, and bringing great deals to investors’ doorsteps through GOIR. By capturing a bigger audience and broadening market coverage, we can also provide better service to our corporate clients, while managing everyone’s health & safety risk.”
“Under the current environment, online roadshows will be a key way for doing private placements moving forward,” said Richard Rappaport, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of WestPark Capital, a strategic partner of Coinstreet Partners. “We are very pleased to premiere a very exclusive deal on this roadshow – American Pacific Bancorp, which is a pre-IPO bank holding company for a US listing. We believe this will bring a very unique opportunity to the exclusive group of investors attending this roadshow.”
“Innovation is key to inspire growth. BMI Capital has strong traditional investment banking experience and a vast institutional investor network in both the US and Asia regions. It is really exciting to collaborate with Coinstreet to expand our service globally through online platforms,” said Robert Trapp, CEO of BMI Capital International.
“Since launching Coinstreet USA earlier this year, we have made enormous strides for our clients, and helping to link East and West by informing U.S. investors of meticulously curated pan-Asian ventures, and Asian financial circles of the U.S.-based projects. We believe that our F.M.T. focus — offering corporate clients an integrated set of media, technology and financial services, is making a huge difference, accelerating time to money for our clients while keeping costs in check,” said Max Smetannikov, General Partner of Coinstreet USA. “The latest initiative, developed in defiance on COVID-19, is a great testament to spirit and determination of our organization.”
According to a survey from the World Economic Forum, around 10% of global GDP will be tokenized and stored on Blockchain by 2027. Coinstreet serves clients with tokenization needs ranging from stablecoins, real estate, financial services, technology, biotech, healthcare, telecommunications, energy, manufacturing, hotel, hospitality, lifestyle, gaming, media and entertainment sectors. Significant growth in the number of high-quality STO projects and global expansion of investor communities is expected, as adaptation of this new corporate finance model gains popularity globally.
