Nodalblock, S.L., a Spanish company that provides logical security and information certification services through blockchain technology, has announced the acquisition of a part of its capital by the Canadian company Numus Financial Inc.

This investment will fund the commercialisation of its operational solutions. This agreement also involves the addition of Jim Megann, Numus CEO, to the Nodalblock Board of Directors, as well as the opening of its North American headquarters in Halifax, Canada.

After two years of development, Nodalblock was founded in Madrid in 2017 with headquarters in the same Spanish city and recently also in North America. The blockchain technology developed by the company enables the delivery and distribution of content and information in real time and securely across different devices. Nodalblock's main differentiating factor is its API REST (Application Program Interface) which establishes a connection space through which customers can quickly integrate blockchain technology into their processes, being able to work on both public and private blockchain platforms, reducing issues related to response times or latency and improving the user experience.

Nodalblock is constantly developing vertical solutions using the products Digital ID, digital file certification, electronic signature and encrypted communication. These solutions guarantee not only sector specialisation, but also the integrity of processes in a reliable and secure manner.

Advanced data anlytics is a weapon". Intelfin is an artificial intelligence tool we use for investing and creating value in SMEs through competitive analytics and the enterprise environment.

IntelFin consists of a cognitive system, which, through the application of advanced analytical technologies, facilitates the automation of investment and financing decisions in the field of non-listed companies and especially SMEs in high-growth sectors.

The information related to these companies is characterized by their lack of transparency and heterogeneity; thus, it is necessary to develop an advanced analysis which is as much predictive as prescriptive and is developed in a natural language custom, suitable to obtain greater clarity and knowledge of the investment scope.

The IntelFin system focuses especially on analyzing the variables that define and influence the competitive environment of a sector and the positioning of a company, analyzing their influence on future value creation. Therefore, IntelFin supports strategic decision-making to senior management by resolving questions such as:

¿What are my competitors' priorities, strategies and expansion plans? Who's my competition? Which competitor is most likely to grow at a higher rate?
Which areas of activity/business models will receive the most investment? Which sectors are most attractive to investors?
Which companies are going to experience the most growth in the near future? Which companies are most likely to receive investment or be acquired?
