Brickblock appoints three advisors ahead of ICO


Cryptocurrency real estate investment platform Brickblock has added three advisors to its team to help development ahead of its initial coin offering (ICO) this month.

Holger Schlünzen, an exchange-traded funds (EFT) analyst, Axel von Goldbeck, a real estate and regulatory expert, and Wolfgang Ritcher, a legal and currency specialist, have joined the team.

The platform aims to help investors manage the volatility of cryptocurrency, allowing investors to invest directly into assets such as ETFs and real estate. It recently completed a $1 million token sale in preparation for the ICO.

Schlünzen will help develop brickblock’s relationships with brokers, having built up experience at the specialist brokerage firm Crossflow Financial Advisors.

Goldbeck and Ritcher, both partners at law firm DWF, will help the firm with regulatory and economic issues while Ritcher will also aid Brickblock’s ‘tokenisation’ of real estate and ETFs.

Prior to DWF, Goldbeck spent six years representing German real estate fund managers as managing director of the German Property Association.

Martin Mischke, co-founder of Brickblock, said: “There’s a real buzz and sense of momentum at Brickblock at the moment, coming off the back of our token sale and looking towards our ICO in October. We are delighted that such eminent specialists in their respective fields see the potential in Brickblock, and their expertise will enable us to accelerate our journey.”
