Funding from the offering will be used to build out a global blockchain network for the issuance, trading and settlement of digital assets

NEW YORK CITY / HAMILTON, BERMUDA — April 11th, 2019 - Velocity Ledger Holdings Limited ”VLHL” has been approved to conduct an initial coin offering “ICO” by the Ministry of Finance of Bermuda in accordance with the companies act of 1981. VLHL is a Bermuda Company with two subsidiaries for which the ICO will fund operations: VL Financial and Velocity Ledger Technology Limited ("VL Tech").

VL Financial is currently engaged in the application process with the Bermuda Monetary Authority (BMA), which regulates the financial sector, to obtain the required licenses to operate. Following approval by the BMA, VL Financial would operate a digital asset exchange in Bermuda supporting asset-backed investment and real estate tokens.

VL Tech is a private blockchain enabled platform for the generation of tokenized assets, secondary trading and settlement of trades. It is a comprehensive technology solution that operates as Software-as-a-Service (SAAS). Participants utilizing the technology will require token ownership.

VL tokens may be used for payment for licensing VL technology platform and services. Benefits include revenue sharing and monthly distribution of newly minted tokens to stake-holders. The VL token sale was approved on March 22, 2019 and is expected to commence in the middle of April, through July of 2019.

“Bermuda has adopted pragmatic, non-restrictive frameworks for digital assets that provide regulatory certainty to market participants,” said Shawn Sloves, CEO of Velocity Ledger. “Bermuda will be a focal point for blockchain initiatives globally.”

Premier, the Hon David Burt, JP, MP, said: “Velocity Ledger represents the exact kind of company that Bermuda is pleased to attract. They have a traditional finance industry pedigree and are building solutions for the institutional finance market. Their platform will showcase the potential of what Fintech and Bermuda have to offer. I am pleased that they have been granted a license to issue an ICO and will be proceeding to apply for a Digital Asset Business License. I look forward to them developing their business and creating jobs in Bermuda.”

NEW YORK / HAMILTON, BERMUDA — 14 February 2019 — Fundamental Interactions (FI) today announced the launch of its proprietary automated-hedging platform designed to jumpstart liquidity within a new exchange. It allows an automated market maker to refactor quote feeds from an active external exchange in order to supply continuous order liquidity to the internal market book. VL Financial Ltd, currently in the process of attaining a digital asset license, will use the service in Bermuda.

The service has two legs (auto-quoting and auto-hedging) each performed from the principal account of a market maker to the exchange. The auto-quoting process converts bid-ask quotes from external exchange market data feeds into orders to create liquidity. The auto-hedger leg of the process is a dynamic hedging and routing system that optimally liquidates positions resulting from the auto-quoting process.

“The ability to generate instant liquidity in Bermuda for digital asset tokens that are actively trading in other markets is an important avenue,” says Julian Jacobson, President and Chief Operating Officer of Fundamental Interactions Inc.

The liquidity platform is broadly compatible with any asset class but is primarily focused on tokenized assets and can be implemented as a plug and play liquidity service within FI’s virtual and nano exchange platforms, or it can be deployed as a stand-alone backend process for a market maker to intermediate between venues via FIX or Native API’s. The hedging process can be administered by an HTML5 interface that displays position views with P&L, slippage and risk management functions.

Partnership allows Seven Stars Cloud to quickly and efficiently digitize real-world assets via proven blockchain technology to create new financial markets

NEW YORK, NY, July 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Seven Stars Cloud Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: SSC) ("SSC" or the "Company"), a leading global fintech firm focusing on digital asset production and distribution, today announced a long-term relationship and strategic licensing agreement with New York-based Fundamental Interactions, a world class provider of enterprise market center technology.

Through this agreement, SSC will leverage core Fundamental Interactions technology and the Velocity Ledger platform to support the tokenization, secondary trading and settlement of new blockchain-based securities. The Velocity Ledger platform is in operation for various approved entities by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and FINRA.

While Velocity Ledger has been designed to support U.S. securities tokens, OTC crypto currencies, and real estate securities, it has unlimited potential to manage the issuance, trading and settlement of digital assets across jurisdiction and across asset classes (securities and non-securities). Velocity Ledger is a blockchain-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that operates as a private blockchain solution and interacts with all of the major public blockchains.

Seven Stars Cloud will work closely with issuers and underwriters of securities in order to source a wide array of financial products. Post issuance, these financial products will undergo a comprehensive rating system to provide transparency into the underlying assets. Additionally, SSC will secure institutional market makers and traders to join Velocity Ledger, providing new product exposure and liquidity to previously illiquid assets. SSC will also leverage its partnership with BBD Digital Capital Group, a leading provider of Artificial Intelligence-based big data solutions to support ratings and risk management of these newly created digital assets.

There are a myriad of benefits afforded by tokenizing securities via Velocity Ledger. These benefits include new product creation and market exposure, competitive fees, fast deal execution, access to institutional investors and broker dealers. In addition to these market and product specific benefits, Velocity Ledger automates key service functions to reduce the number of middlemen and service providers typically involved in a securities transaction. At its core, Velocity Ledger enables highly transparent, immutable, and auditable transaction activity and reporting.

Commenting on the partnership, Bruno Wu, Executive Chairman & CEO of SSC, said: “With Velocity Ledger, we will work with our partners to develop marketplaces for previously illiquid and un-tradeable assets. We have our eyes set on the fixed income, real estate, venture capital, and private equity markets, amongst various other securities and asset classes. By combining the power of Velocity Ledger with SSC’s wide distribution capabilities, we will bring tremendous efficiencies to the capital formation process, narrow bid-ask spreads, and reduce the time and costs for closing and settling transactions via blockchain and AI technology.”

“Our partnership with Fundamental Interactions represents a flagship opportunity in SSC’s ability to penetrate the tokenized security markets. We are thrilled to be working with Fundamental Interactions to harness the power of blockchain and spread the adoption of security tokens across industry.” said Bruno Wu.

Shawn Sloves, CEO of Fundamental Interactions, added, “After several years of hype, blockchain-based solutions are well on track to deliver on their considerable promise. We are excited to be working with Bruno and his team at SSC and look forward to extending the benefits of Velocity Ledger to a variety of new liquid and illiquid asset classes.”

About IdentityMind

WE FIGHT TO PROTECT AND TO WIN THE FINANCIAL CRIME BATTLE. LIKE YOU, WE FIGHT MONEY LAUNDERING, WE FIGHT FINANCING OF TERROR, WE FIGHT HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND WE FIGHT FRAUD.

We see the pace of digital channels, as they move beyond physical channels, and we’ve seen that the old world credit bureau-led, static data model for assessing risk is not enough. We’ve all seen the result in the countless data breaches that have exposed the confidential and private information of some 143 million U.S. consumers to hackers and other nefarious users. And, every day there seems to be another one.

Our fight started in 2013 with the launch of IdentityMind. We were and continue to be passionate about fighting financial crime. We focused on the simple principle of injecting integrity into the digital world by building a platform that featured next generation technology, trusted digital identities. We pioneered the building of digital identities and have continued to lead the market with a technology platform that has received many patents along the way. This technology uniquely identifies each individual in a frictionless manner and helps determine the risk that they pose to your business. It is uniquely accurate due to the ability to capture and assess a wide variety of attributes that help identify banked and unbanked alike; and due to advanced IdentityLink, artificial intelligence, and machine learning capabilities. It is delivered through REST API’s and is cloud-based and real time, helping solve operational issues that high volume manual processes face. It creates identity assets that can be anonymously shared (powerful encryption keeps the identity contents private) across customers, business units and companies, updating the identity and its associated risk with each interaction.
