London, UK, 22 March 2021 - Coinsilium Group Limited (AQSE:COIN) (OTCQB:CINGF) the Blockchain and Open Finance venture builder, is pleased to provide a progress update with regards to the launch of Nifty Labs Limited ("Nifty Labs"), the Company's wholly owned Gibraltar subsidiary.

 

On 2 March 2021 the Company announced that its wholly owned Gibraltar subsidiary, Terrastream Limited ("TerraStream'') had entered into a Memorandum of Understanding ('MoU') with Indorse Pte. Ltd. ('Indorse"), a Singapore company in which Coinsilium holds a 10% equity interest, to form a Partnership or Joint Venture ('the Partnership') to launch a Non-Fungible Token ('NFT') technology development studio in Gibraltar, with TerraStream to be renamed "Nifty Labs Limited" and to trade under the commercial name "Nifty Labs".

 

Highlights:

 

  • Name change to Nifty Labs Limited now completed in Gibraltar

  • Budget approved for Indorse to commence development work to fast-track proprietary NFT Platform build

The Company is pleased to report that the Nifty Labs renaming process is now complete and whilst Nifty Labs and Indorse (together the "Parties") continue to advance discussions towards a formal agreement, in the interim, the Company has agreed to provide Nifty Labs with an initial working capital and development facility of up to GBP250,000. A proportion of these funds will be allocated to the commissioning and fast-track development work of Nifty Labs' first proprietary NFT platform solution, with Indorse to manage the technical aspects of the project.

 

Due to commercial sensitivities, details relating to the NFT project will remain confidential at this early stage. Further updates will be provided to the market in a timely manner.

 

Background on the Nifty Labs MoU and NFTs

 

To provide further context and clarity, certain information originally provided in the Company's announcement of 2 March 2021 has been reproduced below

The Virtual Asset and Digital Collectibles Market

The global market for Virtual Assets and Digital Collectibles is a fast-growing segment within the rapidly evolving blockchain industry. NFTs are the enabling technology and the universally referenced nomenclature for this market segment.

NFTs are now being utilised in a growing array of commercial models including the digitisation of assets, the creation of digital collectibles, as well as for bridging physical to digital assets across various markets, such as gaming, sports, music and fine arts. In these markets, unique digital assets are being created with their own specific set of features and properties, allowing new forms of interaction between brands or content owners and their customers, and between artist/sports personalities and their fans.

Nifty Labs Areas of Cooperation

 

Through Nifty Labs, the Parties wish to develop smart contract systems for NFT applications. The Parties also wish to explore opportunities for other smart contract systems and models with applications across various industry sectors. The Parties also intend to develop smart contract systems for NFT applications compatible with the RSK token standard so that NFT transactions can occur on the RSK blockchain and the NFTs can be traded for RBTC and/or RIF tokens and be used within the RSK ecosystem of platforms and applications.

 

The Parties further propose that the activities of Nifty Labs shall also include the development and production of scalable and enterprise grade blockchain technology and smart contract based solutions which can be sold or licensed to third parties across a variety of industries.

 

NFTs on Bitcoin

 

Currently, although ERC-721 compatible Smart Contracts and tokens can be written on the RSK blockchain, there are still several missing elements needed to make the RSK ecosystem conducive for markets such as digital arts, gaming, collectibles and various other potential applications.

 

Nifty Labs intends to develop various capabilities through the RIF marketplace enabling the RSK ecosystem to compete effectively with the other leading NFT protocols and platforms.

 

Technical Leadership

 

Under the terms of the MoU, technical development will be led by Indorse CEO Gaurang Torvekar. Gaurang has a Masters in Information Systems from Singapore Management University and has conducted courses on Ethereum hands-on coding and has also worked on a book on Building Ethereum Dapps.

 

In 2015 Gaurang co-founded Singapore-based Attores, one of the world's first Smart Contracts as a Service platforms, where he acted as CTO.

 

Gaurang is the co-founder and CEO of Indorse, a blockchain powered skills validation platform. Indorse has received investments from Coinsilium Group and the venture arm of the Times of India Group.

 

The Directors of Coinsilium Group Limited take responsibility for this announcement.
