Accubits

Welcome back to GDA’s official industry newsletter. Today we’re going to be talking about the GDA ecosystem, but if you didn’t get the chance to read the latest edition of our financial-focused newsletter, The Digital Asset Digest, we encourage you to. You can also sign up to receive your own weekly market insights here.

Our goal as North America’s first blockchain-focused merchant bank is to provide projects with the financial, technical and strategic resources they need to address real-world problems through blockchain, and ultimately bring their tech to the market at scale. 

To do this, we have been expanding the GDA ecosystem by consistently adding to our partnership network. This gives us a full suite of technical and financial capabilities across all key geographies. This week we will be summarizing all of these key partnerships and explaining how we plan to leverage these relationships as we move into the month of May.

In this era of misinformation, some of our client’s most critical needs are reliable media channels. Scarce media regulation has caused a lot of for-profit entities to jump into the crypto space, completely disregarding factual reporting and journalistic integrity.

Originally GDA planned to circumvent this by cultivating strong relationships with ethical publications. However, it organically blossomed into so much more. With the singular goal of bringing objectivity to crypto, Timestamp Magazine was born. As an online-only publication, Timestamp Magazine is a blockchain-agnostic magazine that reports on all blockchains and decentralized projects.

Timestamp in no way receives any direction or oversight from the rest of GDA, it operates as a completely separate entity. What Timestamp provides GDA, is the same thing it provides every other company in the industry; peace of mind. From now on, GDA no longer needs to spend hours on discovery and due diligence on new media partners. We are now working with the industry’s most reliable publication.

If you are interested in exploring any media opportunities with Timestamp Magazine, kindly reach out to the editor here.

In early May, GDA and Accubits Technologies launched a joint venture. Accubits is a blockchain and artificial intelligence systems integration firm, specializing in enterprise and large-scale businesses. Based in the United States, this joint venture greatly expedites the speed at which Accutbits can bring their technology to new markets such as Canada and Europe. Moreover, this joint venture creates a phenomenal opportunity for GDA clients to get access to some of the industry’s best integration services.

If you have a decentralized application or blockchain project that needs third-party expertise, let’s get in touch here.

Back in April, we announced a partnership with MarkChain. A France-based marketing firm focusing on blockchain and decentralized application projects in Europe. 

The partnership creates natural synergies as each firm can tap into each other’s investor network and expand their respective operating regions. With the combined capabilities, GDA can provide a global umbrella of marketing, capital markets, and product development services.

Last, and arguably the most exciting announcement was last week’s partnership with DigitalBits (XBD)

DigitalBits is a protocol layer blockchain built to support consumer digital assets, specifically branded currencies. As technology continues to innovate the way brands interact with users, GDA thinks it is critical that blockchain is at the forefront of this disruption.

Considered the 2nd generation of stablecoins, XBD’s branded currencies create a new form of engagement between brands and consumers, improving market intelligence, allowing companies to create more targeted marketing campaigns and develop stronger insights into consumer needs.

We are particularly proud to circle back to this announcement because DigitalBits has just secured funding from Alpha Sigma Capital (ASC) to help increase the institutional adoption of branded cryptocurrencies, a huge milestone on their strategic roadmap.

Concluding Remarks

Although COVID-19 has been a tumultuous time for everyone around the world, we have taken this time to buckle down and work on our business. We now boast the internal capabilities, and external relationships to work with founders from any part of the world to help them realize their decentralized dreams. 

If you or anyone you know is ready to take their project to that next level, let’s get in touch.

We are excited to announce that GDA Capital and Accubits Technologies have formed a joint venture to expand Accubits operations in the United States and launch in Canada. 

Accubits Technologies is a full-service software provider, offering product development services to governments, start-ups, fortune 500 companies, and other commercial businesses. 

​The joint venture allows Accubits to launch a Canadian subsidiary, greatly accelerating the injection of IP, capital, products, and strategic partnerships into new territories.

This corporate structuring allows Accubits Canada to be owned entirely by GDA Capital and Accubits Technologies.

With GDA’s corporate offices in New York and Toronto, coupled with Accubits offices in Washington, UAE, India, Australia, Indonesia, Switzerland, Singapore, Hong Kong & Norway, this joint venture creates significantly more geographical coverage for both firms. 

CEO of Accubits Technologies Jithin VG commented on the joint venture by saying “Global Digital Assets’ expertise in venture capital, capital markets, trading, blockchain technology, token development, etc is remarkable and that makes me excited about this joint venture. I believe this new initiative will enable both Accubits as well as GDA to better tap into the Canadian market for Blockchain development services.”

A primary reason for choosing Accubits as our strategic development partner is that they are aligned with our corporate values. During this COVID-19 crisis, Accubits has launched the application Break the Chain, to provide governments with better technology to track the spread of the virusBreak the Chain is a blockchain-based tracking network for governments, hospitals and citizens to get access to real-time info on COVID-19 threats near them.

With digital identity cards, shared databases for healthcare & governments, and real-time alerts of people with COVID-19 moving in and out of their areas, the platform creates a complete digital footprint of the virus’s impact. If you know of a government or corporate entity that could benefit from this technology please contact us here.

Over the next few weeks, GDA will be working with Accubits to get their technology in front of governments, corporations and health care agencies to help flatten the curve and reduce the impact of the Coronavirus.
