Following on from the announcement on May 30th, 2017, Stockholm IT Ventures AB has confirmed the purchase of UK based Blockchain Trade Technologies Ltd, following on from its recent purchase of Fantrac Global Ltd and Pimboo OU.

Blockchain Trade Technologies Ltd is the owner of proprietary technology that allows networking platform users to follow early stage companies and use crypto currencies. This propriety technology adds to the portfolio of IT and social media companies acquired by Stockholm IT Ventures AB.

We hope to complete the integration into the group quickly and seamlessly. The acquisition will undoubtedly strengthen the company as we continue to look to grow the group portfolio. Tony Norman will be stepping down as Group CEO with immediate effect to focus on developing the proprietary technologies and ensuring smooth integration of all companies within the group."
