The blockchain investment and advisory group said Indorse, a Singapore-based firm that uses blockchain to verify people’s skill sets, would receive an initial investment of US$2mln, valuing it at US$15mln, with the option of a further tranche of US$4.5mln.
The money will be used to fund Indorse’s expansion into India, while also using TTG’s media assets to build demand for its services.
TTG’s media properties include the Times of India, which has one of the largest circulations of any English language newspaper in the world.
As a result of the US$15mln investment valuation, Coinsilium said the implied value of its stake in Indorse would be US$1.5mln, a 350% increase on the value of its initial investment two years ago.
In mid-morning on Wednesday, Coinsilium shares were trading at around 3p on the NEX exchange.
