New York, NY — September 25, 2018 — Republic, the crowdfunding platform democratizing investment access to startups and blockchain projects, has announced the addition of new high-promise blockchain startups Nori and Quarters to its cryptocurrency platform, raising the total number in its portfolio to five. The new additions to Republic’s platform will increase access to investment in promising startups for both accredited and non-accredited investors, as well as venture capitalists, and provide companies with a crowdfunding alternative to the lengthy and complex Initial Coin Offering (ICO) process.
Republic CEO Kendrick Nguyen said: “Republic is dedicated to supporting a diverse range of high-potential startups from around the world and we are delighted to now offer our community access to two more such companies. By partnering with Republic Crypto, Nori and Quarters will now gain access to our SEC-regulated and direct-to-investor capital raising framework.
