Adaverse Accelerates Altify's Alternative Investment Revolution

By Press Release, 11 December 2023

Adaverse, the pioneering accelerator at the heart of the Cardano ecosystem in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, has concluded a strategic investment in the alternative investment platform Altify.

This funding commitment marks a significant milestone in the Adaverse mission to empower startups in emerging markets with a focus on driving blockchain innovation across the globe.

Altify stands as a pioneering wealth-building and savings platform aiming to empower its users to grow their wealth outside of the stock market through alternative investments, revolutionizing the investment landscape for its expanding user base of over 80,000 across Africa and Europe.

Altify is on a mission to democratize access to a diverse range of alternative investment opportunities that were once reserved for big institutions and the ultra-wealthy.

Alternative investments include asset classes such as private credit (private debt), venture capital, real estate, crypto assets, collectibles, and more.

Alternative investing is rapidly evolving through digital trading and asset tokenization enhancing accessibility beyond conventional investment classes like stocks and bonds.

However, despite these advancements, barriers to entry remain high, with the market predominantly influenced by high-net-worth individuals and institutional players.

“At Adaverse, we invest in the future, and Altify embodies this vision. Their innovative use of blockchain to make wealth accessible to everyday investors through secure, fractional digital assets is exactly why we see them as pioneers in the financial sector,” said Vincent Li, Founding Partner of Adaverse.

The Growing Alternative Investment Market

The global alternative investment market, on track to reach $18.3 trillion by 2027 is seeing growing interest in Africa, especially among institutional investors, as underscored by a South African report on the region’s expanding market.

This trend is mirrored in Africa’s vast population and other emerging economies, where widespread adoption of cryptocurrency through mobile devices is now extending to other alternative asset classes, positioning Africa as a vital player in this expanding domain.

Yet, as the popularity of cryptocurrencies, DeFi, and NFTs grows, it has exposed an accessibility gap in asset classes like private credit, real estate, and collectibles for the average investor.

Addressing this, Altify has developed a suite of alternative investment and savings options aimed at breaking down these barriers, enhancing financial inclusivity, and broadening the reach of diverse investment opportunities that are fractionalised on the blockchain.

Altify: The Alternative Investment Super App

Altify was created in Q4 2023 through a merger between South African crypto asset investment platform Revix, joined by fellow South African crypto investment platform BitFund, and Austria’s Coinpanion to form Altify.

From a global perspective, alternative investments significantly shape economies, offering new dimensions of financial growth. This wonderful access that Altify is creating is akin to a coalition of cutting-edge technology and market inclusivity. It’s a crucial step in empowering diverse economies and redefining wealth access for all,” stated Shogo Ishida, Co-CEO of EMURGO Middle East and Africa and Director at Adaverse.
