Digital Bank Y2X Secures Investment From Cardano Venture Arm EMURGO

EMURGO, the investment wing of the Cardano project just announced their first investment of the year. They have become the chief investor in Y2X who is a digital merchant bank for a decentralized economy.

Through this partnership, Cardano becomes the protocol for Y2X and its portfolio firms. This enhances the usage of the technology particularly in the regulation of STOs. This adds value to ADA users.

“The Blockchain is unleashing peer-to-peer engagement and creativity, propelling an explosive force that will drive innovation for entrepreneurs and technologists. Our partnership with EMURGO and Cardano will enable us to bring those innovative forces together to bear more effectively as we invest in and incubate new companies.”

What Is Y2X?

Established by a group of experienced financial services professionals, technologists, and entrepreneurs, Y2X aims to be the leading technology-driven platform that will identify, incubate, advise, and finance the next stage of transformative ideas. They aim to finance their uncommon investment model through a global offering of Y2X Equity Tokens. With a proprietary investment underwriting methodology, a best-in-class issuance and compliance platform, and a pipeline of deals already under execution, Y2X is positioned to raise capital and develop a portfolio of companies capable of generating perpetual alpha returns.
