Conyers advises on the first Cryptocurrency launch in Bermuda

Conyers acted in connection with the formation of Unikrn Bermuda Ltd and its Unikrn token sale and cryptocurrency platform (“Unikrn”). The e-sports startup was founded in 2014 with backing from investors like Elisabeth Murdoch and Ashton Kutcher and then received financial backing from Mark Cuban in 2015. Unikrn raised roughly US$31 million in its digital token sale, with its UnikoinGold surpassing every other esports and gaming token sale to date. For the sale, Unikrn used smart contracts deployed via Ethereum to trade Ether, the cryptocurrency used on the Ethereum blockchain platform.

Director, Chris Garrod and Associate, Jacqueline King worked on the matter.
