SPiCE VC to List Security Token on Black Manta Capital Partners
SPiCE VC, a blockchain/tokenization-focused venture capital fund, recently announced its SPICE security token will list on Black Manta Capital Partners, the Germany-based financial services institution licensed by the German Financial Market Authority (BaFin). SPICE will now be available to Black Manta’s global investors via its fully regulated investment platform that offers end-to-end solutions for digital securities, including robust issuance and brokerage services.
“We couldn’t be more excited to list on Black Manta’s growing investment platform. Not only does this increase our exposure to a European market hungry to take advantage of digitized investment opportunities, but it also opens up opportunities for Black Manta to offer SPiCE as part of its brokerage services,” said SPiCE VC founder Tal Elyashiv. “Black Manta is building the investment infrastructure needed in the tokenization ecosystem to move the digitization of capital markets further and we’re looking forward to working with them on this journey.”
This latest announcement comes on the heels of SPiCE VC announcing a new $100 million fundraising round, as well as more than 65 per cent unrealized gains in the first two years of operation. These current developments by SPiCE underscores the firm’s efforts to provide its investors wide exposure to the massive growth of the blockchain and tokenization ecosystem. As one of the pioneers of the industry, SPiCE has also played a significant role in the creation of the legal and regulatory framework that is used today. Since the fund’s first closing in 2018, SPiCE has achieved value appreciation of 65 per cent, focusing on portfolio companies aiming to change the digital tokenization landscape.
“We are very happy and proud to list SPiCE on our platform. SPiCE is not only among the first tokenized venture funds, but it is a true digital securities ecosystem leader and important contributor to the legal and regulatory structure of the first generation of digital securities/security tokens,” said Black Manta’s Alexander Rapatz.
