Digital Security Token Sale

As expectations and excitement for the burgeoning digital securities sector continues to build, it is important for those building infrastructure to deliver.

Today, SharesPost didn’t disappoint. CityBlock Capital announced they have chosen the SharesPost to facilitate an upcoming Digital Security Offering (DSO).

This DSO will see investors given the opportunity to become shareholders in a VC fund targeted primarily at early-stage firms in the New York area.

As a result, by choosing to tap into SharesPost’s extensive network, CityBlock Capital will gain access to over 50,000 accredited investors of varying ilk.

Commentary

Representatives from each company spoke on this development in their press release.

Robert Nance, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of CityBlock Capital, stated,

“The NYCQ Fund is intended to provide accredited investors with diversified access to blockchain infrastructure investments normally accessible only by institutional investors. CityBlock Capital believes that blockchain technology will deliver a much-needed modernization of the current financial system.
