LONDON UK: Coinsilium Group Limited (AQSE: COIN), the Blockchain and Open Finance venture builder, has entered into a Simple Agreement for Future Tokens (SAFT) with Layer3 FinTech Ltd to purchase $200,000 of YELLOW tokens, the native token of Yellow Network.
Yellow Network is a cross chain overlay, Financial Information Exchange and distributed liquidity infrastructure network project allowing for direct P2P trading between blockchains and cryptocurrency exchanges, aiming to interconnect the fragmented liquidity of the vast blockchain industry.
- Coinsilium enters SAFT Agreement for USD200,000 for future Yellow Network digital tokens to be distributed throughout a vesting period
- Yellow Network is the first-ever broker clearing network for the crypto industry, aiming to interconnect the fragmented liquidity of the blockchain industry and ensure a real decentralised trading experience.
- Yellow Network aims to deploy a Financial Information Exchange and global distributed overlay liquidity network for cryptocurrency exchanges and trading firms.
- Yellow Network partners include GSR, Gate.io, LD Capital, Master Ventures, Moonrock Capital, Yellow Spoon Capital and NOIA.
Eddy Travia, CEO of Coinsilium, commented: “Cryptocurrency exchange services are some of the most profitable activities in the blockchain space. By way of example, Binance is the largest cryptocurrency exchange globally processing around USD76 billion worth of crypto trades daily with an estimated valuation of around USD300 billion, whilst Coinbase’s market debut in April 2021 valued its business at USD86 billion. However, irrespective of these impressive numbers, the global market for crypto trading is still very much in its infancy and has yet to leverage the full power of the blockchain as a distributed ledger technology.
Yellow Network is a highly ambitious venture headed up by a very capable and impressive team of experienced trading software and blockchain industry veterans which aims to transform the current cryptocurrency exchange trading landscape through the creation of a peer-to-peer clearing house, deploying a Financial Information Exchange and global distributed liquidity network for cryptocurrency exchanges and trading firms.
We are therefore very excited to support this early funding round of the Yellow Network and we look forward to updating the market on further developments on this exciting project.”
Louis Bellet, CEO of Yellow, commented: “Yellow Network is designed to become a game-changer for the crypto industry and having the support of Coinsilium will allow us to significantly advance our research and development in the Web3 Internet of Finance. The partnership will further influence the blockchain community by connecting exchanges and market makers, through a clearing house layer. We are seeking to address the complex challenges of cross-chain transactions and help simplify users’ trading needs through a next-gen financial platform.”
Terms of SAFT
Under the terms of the SAFT, Coinsilium will receive USD200,000 in value of YELLOW tokens in this early funding round, vesting over a period of time. At this stage the Company cannot disclose specific details regarding price or number of Tokens to be received. Further details will be provided by way of an update to the market in due course, when the Company is in a position to do so.
Background to Yellow Network
In December 2021, Yellow, Inc. (“Yellow”) and Openware, Inc.
