Brave New Coin
So where exactly did this brave new coin index come from?
In 2014 a company from Auckland, New Zealand was created and lead by Rory Manchee. Brave New Coin supplies spot pricing and API’s for Bitcoin and 50 digital assets to global financial market makers. We recently posted an article about the new indices brave new coin launched with NASDAQ. To the stock market these two indices BLX and ELX may seem new however brave new coin has been working on these indices since 2014.
Brave New Coins’ parent company Techemy is led by Fran Strajnar. Techemy has Brave New Coin, Techemy Capital Ltd., Colony Ltd., HODL1.P, Sphere Identity, Dasset, Vimba, Blockchain.nz as well as Blockchainlabs.nz and recently Techemy Advisory within its portfolio. As of June Fran has been the director of Youdo. Youdo is a software services company also based in New Zealand, from idea to strategy to implementation and ongoing support Youdo collaborates, plans, delivers and support a solution exactly the way you want it.
Recently the focus for BNC has been the development of a marketplace for incumbent and third-party applications, news feeds, research and market data products through the BNC token utility. BNC developed a portfolio tool aimed at crypto investors and traders on their platform utilizing their data, analysis, and research.
BNC has partners like Thomson Reuters, Amazon Alexa, and 11 others. I wanted to know what their connection to Amazon Alexa was so I spoke with Devin at Brave New Coin, who inform me when you ask Alexa for the price of Bitcoin it calls the price of BNC’s liquid index. Prior to speaking with Devin, I have spoken to Alexa about not only the price of Bitcoin but also Ethereum and Ripple. According to Devin BNC only developed the Bitcoin price for Alexa. This now has me wondering where Alexa gets its data for ripple as I have to ask for the price of ripple instead of XRP. For those that don’t know the token is XRP, the company is Ripple.
Techemy Capital Ltd. another subsidiary, is the privately-held investment fund and trading company of the Techemy/ Brave New Coin group created in 2017.

There was very limited information on this group as well as HODL1.P. HODL1.P is a private, closed-ended fund, built to capture the preferential industry deal flow which comes across Techemy’s desk.
