Daniel Mark Harrison and Monkey Capital: the Evolution of ICO & Bitcoin Marketing

Daniel Mark Harrison graduated from NYU with a master’s degree in Business Journalism and an MBA from BI Norwegian Business School. He is an entrepreneur, CEO of his family finance office DMH&CO, and notably the founder and managing partner of the capital firm Monkey Capital. Monkey Capital is an investment bank for digital and blockchain assets that was created in March of last year. Harrison published a novel in 2015 called Millennial Reincarnations. Daniel Mark Harrison is recurrent guest speaker on different esteemed business channel news such as Reuters, CNN, and Bloomberg. He also published articles for Forbes, Wall Street Journal, and is the editor in chief of CoinSpeaker.

DMH&Co, created to grow and manage Harrison’s personal and familial investments, has active office operations in Hong Kong, Singapore and Bangkok. Harrison is the first to develop the concept of Factory Banking. Factory Banking is a value configuration form that is based on the 1999 investigation by Fjelstad and Stabell of Michael Porter’s value sequence model. It is used for businesses and transactions in the financial system of IoT / Internet of Things like bitcoin. In recent ventures, Harrison has been working on a Bipolar Market Economy Equilibrium. It is a market pricing model which defies the legitimacy of other Free Market pricing structures.

Monkey Capital made history when they became the first ICO to achieve selling options to potential investors. These options are called COEVAL and are tradable on DEX / Waves Decentralized Exchange. COEVAL were distributed as tokens to various friends and family members by the management team. It lets stock holders to buy Monkey / MNY coins that are presented at the auction at a reduced rate. Harrison talked to hundreds of investors about premiums at Monkey Capital’s Slack and explained the practicality and value of tokens. It caused the volume of COEVAL contracts, that were approximately at 15 BTC on Waves DEX, to increase. Financial analysts compared the quantity to a third of Bancor’s total volume on Bittrex as well as 60 times the amount to Chrono’s quantity on the same exchange.

Chris Waltzek, a radio host for Goldseek, commented while interviewing Daniel Mark Harrison, “If I have to give Monkey Capital a rating, I give it 6 out of 5 stars. I haven’t seen a product like this in 12 or more years. It’s something from the future.” Waltzek also mentioned his outlook on Monkey Capital’s breakthrough with crowdfunding campaigns to CoinSpeaker, “It’s a game changer on so many levels. Just read the company’s White Paper and find out how incredible their ideas are.” Senior writer for Huffington Post Azeem Khan wrote in article, “Chat rooms already have the offering pegged to raise a billion dollars or more, becoming the first ever 10-digit sum raised in a crowdfunding campaign.” Khan gave Monkey Captial’s ICO the nickname “billion dollar baboon” in the same article. Harrison revealed in an in-depth scoop with CoinSpeaker, “We are experimenting here. What’s important is that we focus on the MNY ICO coming up and don’t get caught up in speculative pricing events. But certainly, to make history by creating the first ever Crowdfunding Option. That’s pretty satisfying. You can’t help but pat yourself on the back a little bit. After all, what is that if nothing other than innovation itself?”

Monkey Capital launched the ICO on July 15th when buyers had a chance to pledge for MNY / Monkey.
