Nivaura has developed an Ethereum blockchain-based service to make raising money simpler and cheaper. This could transform how businesses attract investor funds. In March, Nivaura registered, cleared and settled two Principal Protected Notes (PPN) linked to the FTSE 100 - one through the traditional clearing infrastructure and a second using an open public blockchain.
