Coinsilium Group Limited (NEX: COIN), the accelerator that finances and manages the development of early-stage blockchain technology companies, today announced that it has successfully raised £250,000.00 gross of expenses in an oversubscribed share issue through the issue of 11,363,636 ordinary shares of no par value at a price of 2.2 pence per share from current and new shareholders.

The funds raised will be utilized 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.

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, directors of Coinsilium have resolved to issue 1,534,092 ordinary shares in lieu of fees for services to the company as a fee share.

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 are listed below:

Eddy Travia £12,000.00 545,455
Others £3,750.00 170,455

The issue of shares in lieu of fees and part payment of salaries enables the company to keep its cost base to a minimum, preserving cash for investment activities.
