The First Fully Tokenized VC Fund Will Now Be Available To Individual and Institutional Investors on the BaFin-Licensed Black Manta Investment Platform
SPiCE VC, the leading venture capital (VC) fund in the Blockchain/Tokenization ecosystem, announced today that its SPICE security token will list on Black Manta Capital Partners – the German-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.
SPiCE VC, which has revolutionized the VC asset class with blockchain-based tokenization technology, went live on Black Manta’s investment platform this month – giving investors the opportunity to further diversify their portfolios. This strategic partnership is another significant move as the digital security ecosystem continues to grow at a rapid pace.
“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 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 over 65 percent 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 percent, focusing on portfolio companies aiming to change the digital tokenization landscape.
