BlockQuake Token Presale

A regulatory driven cryptocurrency exchange built on trust and transparency.

 

 

BlockQuake was born out of concerns with the current state of existing cryptocurrency and token trading platforms and the lack of a transparent, trustworthy, and comprehensive trading platform.

Our New York City based team has decades of experience from traditional finance backgrounds.  As financial service professionals, our team spans management and advisors across the value chain, from technology, regulatory, investment banking, blockchain, trading and risk management, with global organizations.  In establishing BlockQuake, we have partnered with industry leading vendors and advisors that have extensive networks and connections to financial institutions that are expanding into this space. BlockQuake is uniquely positioned to be a leader as the future dictates a convergence of traditional finance and cryptocurrencies beyond just trading cryptocurrencies and tokenized securities and other digital assets.  

It is our DNA to establish a concrete foundation globally and we intend to pursue US SEC registration and FINRA Broker-Dealer membership as a Broker-Dealer and ATS, CFTC registration, and a New York State BitLicense.

Blockchain technologies and digital assets based on blockchain technologies (such as cryptocurrencies, tokens and other instruments recorded using blockchain technology) have the potential to be groundbreaking.  But these technologies are still relatively new and the complexity of acquiring, holding and selling such assets, combined with security concerns and difficulties with identity verification, can be a burden for many potential users. For some, this burden may be a barrier to entry.  

We believe there is a strong and growing demand for well-structured, simplified, secured cryptocurrency technologies and platforms that support non-technical users. We also believe that the investing community is interested in trading when and what it wants in an environment that will permit investors to manage their investments and cash in a manner similar to what investors experience when using a standard brokerage account, with full transparency. 

BlockQuake aims to be a trading platform that retail and institutional investors and traders can trust with confidence by becoming a secure, regulated, and stable cryptocurrency and digital asset trading platform providing, among other things: (i) improved login security protocols, (ii) the capability to handle a greater, concurrent load with less downtime, and (iii) focus on compliance with country-specific regulations. 

BlockQuake is a FinTech company formed in 2018 that aims to address a need in the blockchain and cryptocurrency communities.  We are planning on being a diversified company that is focused on the build and development of a centralized, regulatory-driven cryptocurrency trading platform.  In addition to its exchange platform, BlockQuake has created multiple companies and subsidiaries and plans to add future projects.  Some of these projects may include (i) a cryptocurrency bank via acquisition, joint venture, or other partnerships, (ii) a media conglomerate covering the blockchain and cryptocurrency communities, (iii) a research and advisory firm assisting cryptocurrency traders, (iv) a private equity venture capitalist arm to assist startups in blockchain and cryptocurrency, and (v) a debit card linked to investment accounts for consumer use.  These projects are in the future roadmap and there can be no assurance that any of them will come to fruition.

The BlockQuake team includes advertising and marketing professionals, attorneys with local and international expertise, certified public accountants, auditors, finance and business development professionals, compliance and regulatory specialists, developers of trading exchanges/platforms, trust and estate administration, real estate professionals and website developers, among others.  Our regulatory specialists have expertise with Anti Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements, cyber security, and other technology. Collectively, we have extensive experience in building and developing trading exchange platforms and understanding the country specific regulatory environments. Compliance is at the forefront of our business because of our prior experience.

BlockQuake aims to become a one-stop shop for cryptocurrency traders.  BlockQuake endeavors to provide layers of security for login and withdrawal of users’ digital assets, as well as  integration of wallets across the top cryptocurrency exchanges into our platform.  BlockQuake seeks to offer many altcoins with real-time pricing by connecting with other trading platforms to maintain liquidity. BlockQuake also seeks to offer additional base cryptocurrencies to give traders more choices and to reduce friction as they move between various digital assets.  BlockQuake plans to offer accounts to non-individual entities, which include corporate, trust, ERISA, and other retirement accounts.
