Coinsilium Group Limited: Nifty Labs Partnership Update

 

London, UK, 20 April 2021 - Coinsilium Group Limited (AQSE:COIN) (OTCQB:CINGF), the Blockchain and Open Finance venture builder, is pleased to provide the following update regarding the Memorandum of Understanding ('MoU') and proposed partnership between Nifty Labs Limited ('Nifty Labs'), its wholly owned Gibraltar subsidiary, and Indorse Pte Ltd ('Indorse'), a Singapore company in which Coinsilium holds a 10% equity interest, as announced on 2 March 2021.

 

As announced on 2 March 2021, Nifty Labs (formerly Terrastream) entered into an MoU with Indorse to form a Partnership ('the Partnership') in order to launch a Non-Fungible Token ('NFT') technology development studio in Gibraltar. Subject to agreement of the terms and the structure of the Partnership, Nifty Labs and Indorse (together, 'the Parties') agreed to enter into one or more legally binding agreements formalising their relationship and the terms of the Partnership.

 

The Parties continue to advance discussions towards finalising the partnership structure for Nifty Labs and concluding the respective legally binding agreements whilst at the same time jointly evaluating various commercial NFT projects and opportunities. As announced on 22 March 2021, Coinsilium also agreed to provide Nifty Labs with an initial working capital and development facility of up to GBP250,000 with a budget approved for Indorse to commence development work to fast-track a proprietary NFT Platform solution, with Indorse to manage the technical aspects of the project.

 

Whilst discussions regarding the Partnership remain ongoing, the Parties have agreed that, in the event that any commercial agreements relating to in-house projects or prospective third-party clients are concluded ahead of the completion of the Partnership Agreement, as an interim solution, such commercial agreements shall be undertaken with a provision for a revenue share agreement between Nifty Labs and Indorse, the terms of which shall be established in each case.

 

Coinsilium Chairman Malcolm Palle commented: "Nifty Labs is currently experiencing an unprecedented level of enquiries and demand for NFT development services across a range of sectors including digital art, collectibles, music, sports and social media, even before our partnership agreement with Indorse has been formally concluded.

 

"From a commercial perspective it is imperative that we continue to maintain the momentum that we have built since the announcement of the launch of Nifty Labs and capitalise on the growing number of commercial opportunities we are now being presented with.  Whilst formal discussions regarding the partnership agreement remain ongoing, a revenue share model in respect of each and any commercial agreement will therefore fulfil this requirement, until such time that the respective formal agreements are concluded."

 

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.
