Our Company

Blockchain Advisory Limited

In the rapidly evolving area of blockchain technology, effective self-regulation has become key in the light of probably upcoming regulation affecting areas such as initial coin offerings (ICOs), funds which invest in cryptocurrencies as part of their portfolio, and other novel projects brought about by the advent of blockchain technology. Self-regulation becomes fundamentally important when structuring any projects created in a yet-unregulated environment, which naturally makes such a task more difficult than if it were to be developed in a regulated framework.

That is where the assistance of professionals becomes invaluable. Blockchain Advisory Ltd is a leading distributed ledger technology (DLT) advisory firm which has actively worked on numerous blockchain-based and cryptocurrency-related projects such as token generation events, cryptocurrency funds, and cryptocurrency exchanges. Its partners, Jonathan Galea and Anton Dalli, boast of over nine years’ worth of collective experience in the blockchain space, and offer a holistic suite of advisory services ranging from legal advice to fundamental knowledge vis-à-vis project structures.

Services

Our services range from custom and specific advisory services in relation to initial coin offerings and token generation events, to assistance in setting up cryptocurrency-focused funds and exchange platforms. In spite of the wide gamut of services, our goal remains singular: that of ensuring that our clients receive the best assistance possible backed with some of the longest-ranging experience in the sector. Whatever project our clients intend to pursue, we can ascertain the best structure possible and access to an extensive network of blockchain and cryptocurrency-experienced professionals so as to deliver end-to-end solutions.

ICO Advisor

Here at BCA we can provide support for your ICO in the form of advisory services which would cover the fundamentals of the ICO and high-level technical aspects thereof, such as the choice of the issuing platform, structuring of the ICO, ideal consensus mechanism and ICO target audience.

Legal Opinions

A legally-compliant project or venture, whether an ICO, an exchange, or a crypto-fund, is a must in view of the ever-increasing regulatory scrutiny of authorities. In light of this, BCA offers legal opinions covering the regulatory status at the then-current time, covering the legal standing of the token to be issued during the ICO, the structure of an exchange, or the running of a crypto-fund.

Tokenomics

Giving value to one’s own token is the key to long-term success. Token quantity, utility value, and user interaction are aspects which we at BCA can offer advice upon.

Terms & Conditions

The T&Cs essentially form the contractual relationship between the token issuer and the ICO participants. Therefore, the T&Cs are instrumental in ensuring that the terms of the relationship are clear and legally sound.

AML / KYC

Knowing who the ICO participants are has become an important requirement in ICOs despite the lack of regulatory clarity. AML measures must be implemented, with BCA providing guidance on such measures.

Analysis

An analysis from a fundamentals perspective ensures that the project proposition is business-viable in the long-term, and that the concept is ideal for marriage with distributed ledger technology.

ICO Exposure

The team at BCA is often present at various international blockchain conferences, with the Managing Partner, Jonathan, participating as a keynote speaker in such events. Due to the team’s profile, the ICO would benefit from further prominent exposure.

Introducing Contacts

BCA boasts of an extensive network of international contacts, both within the blockchain industry and outside, so as to cater for every need of the ICO project. This includes introductions to industry leaders who may serve upon the ICO advisory board.

Advisory Board

Including any or all of BCA’s team members on one’s ICO advisory board acts as reassurance for ICO participants and other interested parties alike.

Legal Support

We are more than happy to offer long-term legal support for any blockchain-related or cryptocurrency-related venture which you may wish to run, including exchanges, crypto-funds, airdrops, or moving one’s own business onto the blockchain.

Dr Jonathan Galea
Managing Director

Jonathan Galea has considerable experience in the blockchain sector ranges from a close study on the developing regulation in the area to hands-on experience in the technical and economic aspects of cryptocurrencies, one of the most widely-adopted uses of the blockchain so far.

Jonathan’s LL.D. (Doctorate of Laws) thesis was titled “The Effect of Bitcoin on Money Laundering Law”, and being completed in May 2015, it was one of the first ever legal theses on the subject. He has been following developments in the area for four years and moreover has also participated as a keynote speaker in several conferences both in Malta and abroad, covering the legal, technical and economic aspects thereof.

Jonathan’s expertise lies in legal advice on regulatory matters related to blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies in general as well as technical advice on blockchains and platforms built on top of them (from a fundamental perspective). He is an active member in various crypto-communities and is experienced in the mining, trading, investing and analysis of cryptocurrencies.

Jonathan is also the president of Bitmalta, the first non-profit association in Malta dedicated to advocating the blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies with particular focus on the Maltese islands. Moreover, apart from completing various courses related to blockchain technologies and attending various seminars, Jonathan has also successfully completed the “Programming in C” course with Ice Malta, thus giving him further insight on the intricacies of programming languages since this programming language served as a basis for most modern languages.
