About Kintaro

EU Regulated Crypto Investments

In February 2019, Kintaro Capital, a venture of the Konfidio blockchain studio, obtained formal approval of its PIF license from the MFSA. This makes it one of the first regulated crypto funds for qualifying investors under Maltese law.

The licence allows Kintaro clients to invest in strategic alternatives to fiat based instruments. Malta complies with all EU financial and regulatory laws governing investor protection and financial instruments.

With close collaboration from Fexserv Fund Services (Malta) Ltd and Kintaro Capital’s team of researchers and portfolio managers, the fund looks forward to a bright and promising future in crypto investment.

Our Proprietary Research

As part of the Konfidio family, Kintaro Capital utilises the venture studio’s unique position within the Berlin ecosystem. Konfidio’s work for governments and Fortune 500 companies adds to the blockchain knowledge base of the fund.

Konfidio’s Token Advisory LLC practice provides additional insight into regulated crypto fundraising. With a deep understanding of the underlying technology, the fund is at a significant advantage.

Customized research is available to those commissioning one-off reports into selected assets.

The Kintaro researchers undertake detailed analyses of requested tokens in the provision of independent reports. Startups fundraising with tokens can also request valuation reports.

Most recently, Kintaro Capital provided BitbondSTO with financial research and analysis for their STO launch. They are Germany’s first BaFin regulated STO and are also receiving support from the Konfidio Token Advisory.
