My vision of developing a new financial infrastructure to provide liquidity to the Private Capital Markets, focused on Alternative Investments and Financing, with blockchain led me to create Action Monkey, Permissioned DeFi Platform, whose development has been recently finished.
What is the inspiration behind your business?
The inspiration behind my business comes from my experience as a way to solve some of the issues found in the financial industry where I have developed my professional career and particularly in Investment Banking and Alternative Investments and Finance
One of the main challenges faced, in general, in the Private Equity Market is the lack of liquid markets for the type of Alternative Assets such as Real Estate, Hotels, Private Equity or venture Capital Funds.
Traditional funding is limited. Execution times for any corporate transaction which is usually the path for that these assets to be liquid are high.
It is also difficult to scale the Corporate Finance business, with a high fragmentation of investment opportunities for investors, and customized and time-consuming processes for sellers and investors.
On the other hand, digital asset business models frequently use anonymity, lacking the levels of compliance required by regulation, where appropriate, of the assets that they represent.
Action Monkey, Permissioned DeFi Platform, solves some of the challenges of the Private Equity Market and Cryptoasset industry, such as scalability, automation, interoperability and access to liquidity, using blockchain technology and decentralized smart contract protocols for Security Tokens, leveraging their efficiency, transferability, automation and transparency, and, on the other hand, incorporating in the Platform and in the DeFi smart contracts protocols control and compliance functions required by the regulations.
