BridgeTower Capital Teams with SenseiNode and Securitize in Latin America

— Collaboration will bring robust Blockchain Infrastructure, Staking and DeFi services to Latin American Region–

April 20, 2022 – BridgeTower Capital, an innovator in connecting blockchain markets globally, is partnering with SenseiNode, Latin America’s leading node management platform, and Securitize, the leader in digital assets securities, to further regulation-centric staking, DeFi and NFT opportunities throughout Latin America.

Through its partnership with SenseiNode and Securitize, BridgeTower product offerings will be available in Latin America in a BridgeTower Permissioned Market utilizing SenseiNodes extensive Latin America blockchain node infrastructure. Investors can access the Permissioned Market through a seamless UI/UX process interface where investors create a Securitize iD to establish a centralized Know Your Customer (KYC) profile. Securitize iD is an industry leading issuance and lifecycle management for digital securities. Transactions will utilize smart contracts and regulated custody providers and will undergo a proof of reserve process. The BridgeTower Permissioned Market will run across an Avalanche Subnet with additional opportunities ahead.

The offering will include DeFi financial products and NFTs to provide seamless, institutionally compliant products – including customized blockchain staking opportunities — for institutional and retail blockchain investors.

“It’s an exciting time for BridgeTower as we now have a partner in SenseiNode to increase the growing blockchain infrastructure and DeFi service opportunities in Latin America and running these activities across an Avalanche Subnet,” said BridgeTower Chief Executive Officer Cory Pugh. “We have always believed that when proper regulatory-centric processes are in place institutional investment will develop meaningfully in South America for Staking, DeFi and NFT products. That era is now beginning.”

SenseiNode has been a leading driver in bringing a decentralized blockchain ecosystem in Latin America as the region’s first blockchain infrastructure independent service provider. The company is a leader in automating and simplifying the deployment and monitoring of nodes on leading protocols and making available its APIs to organizations who are looking to build their blockchain infrastructure with a high availability and low total cost of ownership.

¨Latin America has seen exponential growth in crypto adoption; now is the right moment to bring new products and services to the region and we believe this alliance with BridgeTower Capital and Securitize will pioneer the delivery of financial and DeFi products, ¨ said SenseiNode Co-Founder and CEO Pablo Larguia. “This will give new investment opportunities to the region driving the deployment of new nodes supporting Latin America blockchains and will continually improve decentralized blockchains to the Region.”
