The Blackmoon platform
Founded in 2014, Blackmoon Financial Group is a financial technology and investment management company. In March last year, the company officially launched its blockchain-based platform, the Blackmoon Platform, for tokenized vehicles, which enables approved investment managers to create a fund based on Ethereum technology.
For verified investors, the platform allows them to purchase different types of asset tokens that vary in characteristics and returns. Earlier this year, Finance Magnates reported that the firm was selling a token pegged to the price of Chinese mobile phone company Xiaomi called BMXXMI. The token was “referenced by the shares of the Xiaomi Corporation” during its initial public offering.
Blackmoon was the first company in history to issue a token related to an IPO in this way. However, according to the South China Morning Post, Xiaomi had not approved Blackmoon’s token sale.
Commenting to Finance Magnates at the time, Blackmoon said: “We have conducted substantial research and structured the product in such a way to ensure it is aligned with the requirements of the jurisdictions in question, including our ability to participate in the IPO offering of Xiaomi and subsequently distribute the tokens. The token sale is subject to residency restrictions and is not available to the residents of Hong Kong and mainland China.”
