(the “Company” or “Spirit”) (CSE: SPIR ), a Canadian company offering shareholders diversified exposure to the Blockchain and Crypto industries, is pleased to announce that it has executed a memorandum of understanding (“MOU”) with InvestDEFY Technologies Inc. (“InvestDEFY”), a full-stack AI platform operating unique structured products for the digital resource space, in which Spirit will serve as a lead investor in InvestDEFY’s Class “B” equity raising and InvestDEFY will provide Spirit with enhanced return and income streaming solutions.
“This investment gives us a foothold in an exciting technology company with a proven leadership team”, said Lewis Bateman, Spirit Blockchain’s new incoming CEO, “InvestDEFY has developed a full-stack AI platform over the past year that has demonstrated an ability to deliver performance in what is considered to be an extremely challenging year Their yield solutions and ability to develop tailored products fit extremely well with our strategy, particularly within our royalties and flows and treasury management units.
Spirit is leading the fundraising in what is currently considered a subscription to Class “B” ordinary shares in InvestDEFY which will pay a variable dividend targeted at 10% or more per annum with a floor of 7.5% per annum, payable semi-annually until conversion or repurchase. These Class “B” ordinary shares shall be converted into Class “A” ordinary shares after a two-year period subject to InvestDEFY’s right to repurchase 40% of the Class “B” ordinary shares at the end of such two-year period.
In addition to this investment, InvestDEFY will provide Spirit with enhanced return solutions designed to grow the company’s stack of ETH and BTC as well as other selective tokens. InvestDEFY will also develop new revenue stream solutions and work with Spirit to bring these solutions to market.
