Hello, all, and welcome to the May edition of Smartlands newsletter – your one and only source for news and updates on all our projects!

In May we delivered a major milestone – light paper on Smartlands Network, a new blockchain solution for financial markets from Smartlands. 

Over the past two years, the Smartlands team has been engaged in in-depth R&D and business development of products for companies and investors in the areas of regulated assets, investment banking, securities trading and related processes. Today, we much better understand the needs of professional participants in financial markets who are ready to implement blockchain solutions under certain conditions and requirements.

Working with market participants and partners who accompany transactions, we concluded that it is of key importance to be able to provide a tailored solution that will provide maximum flexibility to potential customers (users) in the form of a private or consortium blockchain with the ability to access various public networks (blockchains). 

We have collected vision, and all our objectives and plans in the dedicated light paper and invite all of you to have a look at how Smartlands Network will be designed.

   


And here is the fresh update on progress with
Smartlands + Smartee public stage of a funding round on Seedrs, a leading equity crowdfunding platform for investing in startups and later-stage businesses throughout Europe. While more and more people are regaining the freedom to shop and visit hair salons, our progress bar on Seedrs has just hit 96% of the target. We’re almost there! 

Our goal is to sell 2.53% of equity stake on Seedrs to help fund a freemium model for customers in 2020, expand the internal engineering team, and obtain the rest of the necessary licenses to move forward. The offering on Seedrs is a part of our bigger strategy of bringing in investments through the sale of a 12% equity stake, most of which we plan to raise through VC firms.

Our project has attracted the interest of almost 200 investors and we would be glad to have you aboard: https://www.seedrs.com/smartlands.
