LIOcoin is the first European asset-backed coin (LIO ABC), which combines the opportunities of the blockchain network with investments in future-oriented and profitable companies and start-ups, along with an investment in precious physical metals such as gold and silver. This is the link between coin and material assets.LIOcoin is committed to start-ups and established companies that have already reached a stage in which, for example, prototypes are available. However, no investments are planned in very early stage companies.To this end, GCS has acquired a stake in a renowned investment company, TecFin Innovations Inc. (www.tecfin.info). In an extensive due diligence, the latter examines possible target investments and invests part of Liocoin’s capital in these promising companies. TecFin Innovations is not only an investor but is also involved in the operative business of most companies. It contributes new ideas, develops marketing strategies and uses the existing network to optimise and advance processes.
