“We provided an opportunity for our community to invest online in a handful of unicorns and cryptocurrency exchanges. With BMI Capital we have built the infrastructure to allow for compliant security token offerings.”

BnkToTheFuture also brought in Coinstreet Partners who specializes in arranging institutional investor roadshows across Asia.
“While the market is at its early stage, STO will be a cost-effective and efficient way for solid corporations for seeking growth funding, and for established institutions to bring additional liquidity to their asset portfolio through the tokenizing process. Further to our strong foundation in Asia, we are very excited to expand our business to US market through collaboration with BMI Capital and BnkToTheFuture.”
– Samson (SAM) Lee, Founder & CEO of Coinstreet Partners
The three firms will work together to onboard institutional investors that wish to invest security tokens.
“We are really excited to work with BnkToTheFuture and Coinstreet Partners as a strategic investor to build the next wave of disruption coming to capital markets. BMI Capital has strong traditional investment banking experience and a vast institutional investor network in both the US and Asia regions. We look forward to working with BnkToTheFuture and Coinstreet Partners much more closely to bring token-based corporate finance to a much deeper pool of institutional investors in the US and Asia as the industry grows.”
– Robert Trapp, CEO of BMI Capital
