We would like to thank all bloggers who decided to participate by creating an original post about how LEXIT in building a blockchain-powered marketplace for IP and startups.
There is a common misconception that the term M&A encompasses a single process. Mergers and acquisitions actually describe the two different ways in which two companies can become a single one. A merger takes place when two businesses of the same size join, while acquisitions is the process in which a big company buys a smaller one.
August began with a very busy week for the LEXIT team. As we approach the end of tier four of our ICO, co-founders Amir Kaltak and Deniss Raider had the chance of attending the 2018 Global Blockchain Conference in Dubai.
In this episode of Life at Lexit, we introduce the key element that makes this blockchain project different: our team. Composed by experts in Marketing, Management, Business, and Blockchain, what drives the team to work together is the goal of turning an idea into a successful business solution for the M&A industry.
The LEXIT referral program rewards both you and your friends with a 5% bonus. We hope to see you and your friends participate in this great token bonus.
We are glad to announce that the LEXIT bounty program is officially extended until September 30, the last day of our ICO, or until the allocated tokens run out.
今天上午，我们宣布将与 Metaverse 合作进行一项雄心勃勃的知识产权代币化计划。 Metaverse 是一个开源的公共区块链，使 LEXIT 能够为知识产权 (IP)、资产以及部分或整个公司的交易提供安全可靠的环境。 来年，我们可能实现区块链代币化，而在许可、购买和销售 IP 的方式上带来重大变化。 企业家还将第一次完全自由地进入全球市场，并购可以比以往速度更快、成本更低地进行。
The level of enthusiasm since our pre-ICO is very appreciated and we’ve been thrilled to see such vibrant discussion in our Telegram group from people who have taken an interest in the LEXIT platform. We want to thank all of the community for their support so far and would like to offer more people the chance to buy in to our public sale.

Following feedback from the community, the mergers and acquisitions industry, and IP specialists, we have made some additions to the LEXIT white paper.

There is a problem in universities today. Cash-strapped and sometimes (it feels) criminally underfunded, they have been forced to consider their options for other revenue streams. In many cases, intellectual property has become the focus of efforts to leverage their valuable level of research output.

Led by Coinbase, mergers and acquisitions in the blockchain space are heating up. LEXIT, which is creating the world’s first mergers and acquisitions platform based on blockchain technology, decided to take a look at some of the most notable M&As that have taken place in the revolutionary blockchain industry.
Mergers and Acquisitions deals are a long and costly processes. A lack of transparency, legal knowledge, and security concerns undermine market. This has stopped companies from utilizing the latest technologies and simplifying their business processes. The M&A process to this day has yet to come online... until the emergence of blockchain technology, that is.
The disruption of the global equities markets and the M&A industry just got one step closer.
LEXIT is a tech company aiming to disrupt the mergers and acquisitions market and revolutionize the way companies and their intellectual property are bought, sold, and licensed.
In our new video, we explain how LEXIT technology is transforming IP, M&A and the way in which the world makes deals.
In the world of software, the protection of intellectual property rights is a necessity. Software is an intangible asset and as such cannot be “stolen” in a physical sense, like a car. But, in our increasingly digital world, it is becoming more important for creators to protect their creations and protect their right to be rewarded for their efforts. To do that their IP must be protected from competitors and thieves.
LEXIT made many new connections (and reconnected with many old friends) at Consensus 2018. That's why we wanted to share with you the progress we made there towards fulfilling our vision.
Thanks to fantastic demand in our presale, LEXIT has decided to ensure wide distribution of its utility token with a public sale.
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 decided to offer a 10000 LXT bounty to the creative genius among you that will deliver LEXIT’s new tagline. Once accepted, the chosen tagline will become an integral part of all LEXIT’s official communications, including our new website, logo, email signatures, and product branding.

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.

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.

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.
