CUV Ventures, Blockchain, FinTech With A Purpose

Date: Thursday, March 22, 2018 11:44 AM EST

In the past few months, CUV Ventures [TSX-V: CUV] has broken free from the extreme volatility of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum & Litecoin and crypto stocks like St-Georges Eco-Mining Corp., Bitcoin Services & Hashchain Technology (down an average of ~87% from 52-week highs).  CUV shares are also down, about 50%, but have settled in around C$0.20.  The volatility wasn’t all bad, it served to introduce CUV to thousands of new investors.  Management believes the company is well positioned, and they encourage readers to visit their website to better understand a number of important recent developments. 

The difference between CUV and many cryptocurrencies & blockchain/crpyto stocks is that CUV is not a flash in the pan, a bubble, or worse — a ponzi / pyramid scheme!  Of course, not all “Alt-coins” and crypto companies are scams, but many of them are.  Most suffer from one or more of the following; overvaluation, no clear vision or business plan, lack of management with relevant experience, highly uncertain ability to monetize their business idea, and exposed to never-ending dilutive equity capital raises.

CUV is not merely the best house in a bad neighborhood, it’s a good house in any neighborhood.  It was a viable business with millions of dollars in tech-derived revenue before the blockchain stock craze.  The Company’s partnering with, and investing in, well respected entities and attracting strong managerial talent across corporate divisions.  Perhaps the best evidence of CUV’s staying power can be found in the multiple funding partners it has aligned itself with.   

To learn more about this very busy company, I spoke to its leader, Director & CEO Steve Marshall.  Mr. Marshall is a trilingual serial entrepreneur specializing in international marketing and deal brokering. He has successfully founded businesses in; Spain, France, United Kingdom, Panama, Russia, Moldova, Ukraine & Cuba.  In addition to CUV’s experienced management team, please take a moment to check out the strength of the Company’s Advisory Boards.

I said that CUV Ventures was a very busy company, please see links to 5 press releases at bottom of page, all 5 from this month…  Without further introduction, here’s CEO Marshall in an interview we did by phone and email in the week ending March 21st.
