Katipult Secures Funding from the Government of Canada for Investor License Development

VANCOUVER, Oct. 17, 2018 /CNW/ - Katipult Technology Corp. (TSXV:FUND and FRA:K10) ("Katipult" or the "Company"), an industry leading and award-winning fintech company, is pleased to announce it has secured funding of up to $120,000from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP), to support the development of an "Investor License" application on a decentralized network. The Investor License intends to address all mechanisms of investor onboarding and auditability necessary for regulatory compliance. The project will be funded over an eight month period, starting September 1, 2018.

"Investor onboarding is a massive pain point and redundant process for the investment industry. Know Your Client (KYC), suitability, and related requirements create significant friction to complete investment transactions and our management believes this specific area is a compelling application to evolve the Katipult product using blockchain technology," said Brock Murray CEO of Katipult. "Having already adapted our platform to a multitude of different regional, federal and international regulatory environments, we see our firm as uniquely positioned to deliver the product on a large scale," continued Murray.

The goal of this research and development project is to create a best-of-breed application for eliminating transaction redundancy, enhancing investor experience, and accelerating deal flow. The Investor License is a fundamental component necessary for transforming the existing landscape of investing by allowing a decentralized exchange of investor information including KYC, MIFID, AML, PEP to and between multiple blockchains directly without a trusted 3rd party intermediary. It solves a number of challenges related to primary investments, cross border investments, custody/escrow, secondary trading, etc.
