London-based Platio to bring investment tour to Australia

Crypto-friendly banking platform to speak in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne

London, 15 October, 2018. Smart banking innovator Platio will bring its global tour to Australia tomorrow, with dates in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. The London-headquartered company plans to develop further international partnerships following its recent vendor agreement with Ripple.

Platio is the banking solution for businesses that need to seamlessly and securely manage both crypto and traditional currencies. Platio’s Chief Financial Officer Irina Berkon and Chief Growth Officer Mark Jackson will debut the award-winning platform to Australia’s blockchain community on 16th October, speaking at Token Showtime in Sydney. Further events and meetings in Brisbane and Melbourne are to follow, where the team will be joined by Platio’s Chief Executive Officer Dima Okhrimchuk.

“Platio is a fully regulated, global banking solution licensed by the FCA,” explains Okhrimchuk. “ We look forward to meeting like-minded creators and investors in Australia.”

“We are excited by the innovation we see in Australia’s crypto community,” adds Berkon. “Platio is developing the first crypto-friendly banking platform that businesses can truly trust with their money. Australia is not only an important market for us, it is an important source of shared innovation and vision for our solution.”

Platio had to pass a rigorous diligence process, which included recommendation from a reputable VC, to be selected by Ravneet Ghuman, founder of AusLovesCrypto, the parent company of Token Showtime, to participate in this event. “Investors are very excited to take part in this innovative way of connecting and interacting with blockchain companies that have been shortlisted as worthy of investment,” says Ghuman.
