Equibit Development Corporation joins Agentic Group blockchain consortium
Equibit Development Corporation, creator of the Equibit blockchain and blockchain applications for the global securities industry, has joined Agentic Group, a global membership-based consortium of blockchain, digital currency and related companies.
"The Agentic Group truly understands the full implications of this revolutionary technology and continue to be fantastic global advocates," said EDC CEO Chris Horlacher. "We’re proud to count ourselves amongst their membership of trailblazers and innovators. Together we’re bringing a new world into focus that will change the world of finance forever."
Formed in 2015, Agentic Group is a New York-based consortium with over 40 blockchain and digital currency-related companies around the world. Its members include the likes of Steemit, ConsenSys, Loyyal, BitGive, Fermat and many others. The consortium aims to provide insight, advice, consultation and development services to corporations, non-profit organizations and government agencies, to help them better understand and leverage emerging blockchain applications.
“We are extremely happy to welcome Equibit to the Agentic Group family”, said Rik Willard, Agentic Group Founder. “Their groundbreaking work will help the world uncover new and exciting value in both technology and finance and their addition to the group will help to develop and disseminate that value throughout our entire global ecosystem. This is good news for other members as well as our clients.”
Toronto-based EDC unveiled its two-year roadmap in February 2017. It has raised $580k in an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) drive that concluded on 31 March 2017. Equibit is the world's first peer-to-peer securities marketplace and a complete platform for issuers to manage their investor relations without need of depositories and transfer agents.
