BlockchainK2 Announces Investment in RealBlocks
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - October 29, 2020) - BlockchainK2 Corp. (TSXV: BITK) (OTCQB: BIDCF) (STU: KRL2) ("BlockchainK2" or the "Company") is pleased to announce an investment in Envexergy Inc. ("RealBlocks"), a modern blockchain-enabled platform that provides a global investment platform for alternative investments - real estate, infrastructure and private equity and debt - while improving the investment experience for wealth managers, advisors and investors.
BlockchainK2 invested U.S.$200,000 as part of RealBlocks' U.S.$7 million series A round of financing. This financing was oversubscribed and led by an investment by Crosslink Capital, a prominent venture investor based in Palo Alto that manages over U.S.$1.8 billion in AUM. BlockchainK2's investment allows it to maintain its pro rata share of RealBlocks and adds to its previous U.S.$500,000 investment in RealBlocks, which was completed in July of 2019 as part of a U.S.$3.1 million seed round of financing by RealBlocks.
Sergei Stetsenko, CEO of BlockchainK2 stated: "We expect that our continued investment in RealBlocks will provide shareholders value in the long term and we are pleased to see significant valuation uplift from the seed round completed last year. We believe that RealBlocks is at the forefront of potential for growth and we are excited to be an investor in RealBlocks and to have reputable firms such as Crosslink Capital share the same vision."
