The funds raised will be utilised for proposed investment opportunities within the emerging blockchain based Digital Asset space, with the balance allocated towards the development of the Company’s Smart Contract Alliance initiative and general working capital purposes. In each case, further announcements will be made in due course.
Eddy Travia, CEO of Coinsilium stated: “We are delighted to see the continued support of our existing shareholders as well as new shareholders in the current fundraising which was significantly oversubscribed. Since the Subscription was initiated, the share price has risen substantially, with an increased discount in the Subscription price relative to the current price.
This fundraising will enable us to invest in some exciting opportunities in the burgeoning digital asset sector, in addition to pursuing our own initiatives in blockchain and smart contract technologies.”
In addition to the Subscription, the Directors of the Company have resolved to issue 1,534,092 Ordinary Shares in lieu of fees for services to the Company (the “Fee Shares”). 1,363,637 Fee Shares to the Directors as part payment of salaries and 170,455 Fee Shares in lieu of cash fees for services to the Company as follows:
