SMC Capital Completes Successful Asian Leg of Global Investor Roadshow on Behalf of New Stablecoin Anchor

NEW YORK – MARCH 26, 2019

SMC Capital, an NYC-based venture capital and advisory firm, and Anchor, the only stablecoin project that is indexed to the real value of the global economy, have successfully completed the first round of their investment roadshow in Asia.

With private investor roundtable dinners taking place on the sidelines of blockchain and fintech conferences Token2049 in Hong Kong and Money20/20 Asia in Singapore, SMC Capital and Anchor hosted top crypto exchanges, funds, and media including Bibox, Huobi, Kraken, Fenbushi, Neo Global Capital, Singapore Exchange, Tembusu Partners, Vectr Capital, IDCM Exchange, IDAX Singapore, tZERO, Blue Helix Exchange (BHEX), The Cabin Capital, Morchlo, Monk’s Hill Ventures, Future Labs Ventures, Golden Gate Ventures, SPiCE VC, Kucoin, CNBC, and Crypto Investor Asia among others.

At the events, founder and CEO, Daniel Popa along with his team presented Anchor, a scalable and stable solution that aims to preserve and enhance the value of token users’ holdings while hedging market volatility. Anchor’s tokenomic infrastructure is designed to be fundamentally stable with its dual-token, burn-mint model and stable peg of value, the Monetary Measurement Unit (MMU). The MMU is Anchor’s algorithmically-based financial index that reflects the sustainable, long-term trend of global economic growth while protecting against inflation, regional shocks, and politically-biased influences.

SMC Capital Managing Partner John Slyusarev said: “The two private events in Asia brought together a premiere gathering of some of the most influential players in the Asian crypto investment space. Our joint invitation-only private dinners gave the Anchor team unparalleled exposure to Partner and C-level executives from over 40 crypto funds and C-level decision makers from more than 10 of the world’s biggest cryptocurrency exchanges.”

Mr. Popa said: “Beyond a dual-token stablecoin, our team of PhD economists have developed an intrinsically stable financial index, the Monetary Measurement Unit (MMU). The overwhelmingly positive feedback we have received from top investment funds, crypto traders, and exchanges in Asia further solidifies Anchor’s mission and the market demand for a stable store of value that is resistant to inflation and market fluctuations.”

Yovie Liu, CEO of IDAX Singapore commented: “SMC Capital and Anchor’s event brought together professionals from across the industry. Anchor is a unique and visionary project.”

Elsa Qiu, Director of BHEX stated: “Thank you, SMC Capital for the invite to Anchor’s roundtable event in Singapore. It was an amazing gathering and opportunity to catch-up with fellow blockchainers who are still contributing to the industry, as well as meeting market leaders from traditional financial sectors. On behalf of BHEX, thank you for connecting us to Anchor, an amazing project outside of APAC.”

SMC Capital and Anchor’s roadshow will continue in April in Los Angeles alongside Crypto Invest Summit (CIS), and in London adjoining Blockchain Expo, with the final private investor event taking place in New York City on the sidelines of Consensus in May.
