Monkey Captial and Daniel Mark Harrison’s Crowdfunding Breakthrough

Hailed as innovative and “the future,” of crowdfunding, Monkey Capital’s White Paper on its ICO, or initial coin offering, has investors and cryptocurrency enthusiasts crowing. The bottom line is that Monkey Capital has taken the ICO market seriously and has bought it some legitimacy. The White Paper goes into depth on fairness issues and details Monkey Capital’s solution to power disparities. By acting as a neutral dealer of sorts, Monkey Capital does not handle the¬†cryptocurrency’s administrative needs. Instead, the decentralized hedge fund acts as an intermediary in transactions between non-voting and voting members. This development has been hailed as innovative. And it isn’t just talk.

Monkey Capital has sold options on its ICO¬†prior to the funding round. The options are called COEVAL and when traded on the Waves Decentralised Exchange, or DEX, in early July it reached 60 times Chronos’ DEX value. This kind of showing has proven the speculative strength of Monkey’s ICO value. Earlier this summer Monkey became the first crowdfunding campaign to reach the billion dollar mark.

The minds behind Monkey Capital are hardly unknowns in the fintech world. Daniel Mark Harrison, managing partner of Monkey Capital and Chairman and CEO of DMH&CO, is known for his entrepreneurial prowess and his popular business and cultural media commentary. He puts his ideas out on the company’s Slack, keeping the conversation on ICO strong and informed. His ability to explain complex financial maneuverings has earned him ink in Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, Reuters, Bloomberg and other media outlets.

Daniel Mark Harrison’s knowledge of global finance and investment, when combined with fintech innovations like blockchain, results in innovative products like Monkey Capital’s ICO. But he isn’t content to merely stop there. Harrison isn’t keen on speculation, though he admits that it is cool to create the first Crowdfunding Option. With an eye on investments in SpaceX supply contracts and public company takeovers, Monkey Capital is poised for serious, real world growth.
