CEO FORTnightly Message – 05/10/18
I have been back in Gibraltar for the last two weeks, continuing to develop our ecosystem both here and further afield. Our work with the Global Securities Protocol (GSP), a subject that I touched upon in my last update, is particularly relevant.
The GSP project is our technology subsidiary that is looking to bring together the advancements of blockchain and tokenised securities with the traditional financial world. It aims to radically transform the capital markets with Distributed Ledger Technology. Members of our senior executive team shall this weekend be returning from a global summit in New Zealand, where we shared ideas with some of the world’s other leading figures in the token securities world on how best to drive the industry forward. Recent announcements believe that the value of blockchain technology, when aligned with security tokens, will reach 10% of global GDP – roughly $8 trillion – within the next 6 years. Think about that for a moment, and consider where we are now. With an international effort that is collaborative, not competitive, there is no limit to what can be achieved. These are exciting times.
I look forward to sharing further developments on how the GSP matters to you, our Community, as soon as possible.
In the meantime, we have been hard at work as always at the GBX, delivering on our planned roadmap to provide an institutional-grade ecosystem for the crypto space. Here is what we have been up to recently:
1 – DAX Listing Announcement: Bluzelle

3 – Sponsor Firm Summit Asia
The GBX team held a Summit for our Sponsor Firms based in (and near) Asia. I delivered a presentation on the latest developments across the GSX Group, and we discussed and debated the rules and processes of the GBX-GRID and GBX-DAX, to ensure we are always providing the most robust and supportive services. You can gain an overview of the summit here:
4 – CrowdVilla Token Sale Concluded
The Crowdvilla token sale on the GBX-GRID was concluded. Due to the endeavours of Crowdvilla management team, they were able to reach the hard cap by selling to property owners who share their vision.
