Our CEO and co-founder, Amir Kaltak, was one of the keynote speakers and delivered a twenty-minute presentation on ‘The New Era of M&A’ to a full audience, while CPO, Deniss Raider, delivered LEXIT’s pitch to another packed room. The audiences responded well to both as they brought the message of LEXIT to those who aren’t familiar with us yet, and we received tonnes of positive feedback afterward.
We are glad to have the opportunity to work with one of the most innovative and practical startups in the blockchain industry and to provide our users with the security and the seamless user experience made possible through this collaboration.

The implications of this partnership are virtually endless. From tokens representing ownership of corporate assets such as code or copyrights to the tokenized and smart-contract-powered licensing of patented innovations - the workflow arising from this joint development effort will herald an entirely new use-case for cryptographic tokens.
This week we had the pleasure of talking to Trevor Koverko. Trevor is a serial entrepreneur and has been active in the blockchain industry since early 2012. As one of the most active angel investors in Canada, Trevor held early positions in ShapeShift.io, Luminex and Royalty Exchange among several others. Currently, Trevor is CEO and project lead of Polymath.

As part of the LEXIT founder’s series we’re conducting weekly interviews with entrepreneurs, M&A specialists, and industry influencers from the blockchain industry and beyond. This week we had the pleasure of talking to Jaron Lukasiewicz, who has been an active blockchain executive since 2012 and has recently joined LEXIT’s advisory board. Jaron served as CEO of Coinsetter, a New York City-based bitcoin exchange, and Cavirtex, a leading bitcoin exchange in Canada – both acquired by Kraken in 2016. Prior to founding Coinsetter, Jaron was a private equity associate at The CapStreet Group, an investment banker at J.P. Morgan and a private equity analyst at SPB Partners.
Even if you’re not about to exit and have absolutely zero plans of selling your company to someone else, you can still still benefit greatly from listing yourself on LEXITs marketplace. Here are only a few examples -
We’re heartened by your support and encouraged by the many opinionated questions and inquiries we receive from you. We regard the LEXIT community as an integral part of the LEXIT project, and it will be an immense pleasure to meet you in person for a chat.

Hartej, Nikolai, and Jaron bring in unique experience and a wide array of skills, vital to the development and growth of the LEXIT solution. We’re very much excited to welcome them to the extended LEXIT family.
Small and medium sized companies struggle to make good use of their unutilized IP, while the industry giants transform entire market sectors into their outsourced R&D department on an unprecedented acquisition binge. LEXIT employs blockchain technology to level the playing field and to allow everyone to use the powerful growth engine of Mergers & Acquisitions.
Since our community has been expanding considerably, and with the LEXIT project gaining media attention, the interest of malevolent actors has naturally risen as well. Here's how to protect yourself.
Our research has shown this time and again - for value to flow through LEXIT as fuel flows through a well-tuned engine, a cryptographic token is absolutely necessary. If we want to streamline a complex process like M&A, relying on cutting-edge technologies is an absolute must, and blockchain technology is this cutting edge when it comes to the transfer of value, immutable record keeping, and the facilitation of trust among remote agents.
LEXIT’s Global Partners (GPs) are highly connected players in the tech industry, such as VC funds, Technology Hubs, and Accelerators. LEXIT GPs utilize their vast networks and in-depth knowledge of the industry to onboard potential buyers and\or sellers to the LEXIT platform.
The LEXIT Solution allows for M&A processes to be concluded four times as fast, at about a quarter of the traditional costs. Entrepreneurs are empowered to discover the true value of their assets on a vibrant and highly liquid marketplace, without having to bear overpriced prepayments. And most importantly - for the first time an efficient market for IP and patents is established, allowing companies to trade assets as conveniently as one would buy or sell a car or real estate.
At the beginning of December we had the privilege of sponsoring moontec17. Here is a short recap, including videos of our presentations, panel appearences and interviews on location.
LEXIT presented at the Blockchain Future Conference in Tokyo, Japan, where Deniss shared the story of how the LEXIT idea was first conceived and Jason shared his experience as an attorney, specialising in Bankruptcy & Insolvency Law and Corporate Restructuring.
As an event crammed with representatives from the entire tech ecosystem, such as startups, investors and accelerators, Web Summit is the perfect stage to unveil LEXIT’s blockchain-based Mergers & Acquisitions Marketplace. And indeed, the heartwarming amount of traction our stand and presentation generated, led us to the understanding that we’re not mistaken with our assumption that startup M&A could and should be streamlined for the benefit of all parties involved.
There’s an enormous pool of excellent ideas and great technology out there, unutilized due to imperfect market conditions and archaic mediation practices. LEXIT taps into this pool, turning the tables on traditional M&A processes with the help of blockchain technology and network dynamics.
