Teknos Associates is the premier provider of valuations for cryptocurrency and token-related assets. As the first firm to specialize in crypto and token valuations, Teknos Associates is uniquely positioned to draw on its deep breadth of experience to best assist our clients in a variety of complex situations. Whether you’re valuing token grants (e.g. 83b elections), intricate warrants, or you are dealing with the issuance of tokens as part of a more sophisticated transaction (e.g. equity to token conversions, acquisition structures, large block transfers of low-liquidity tokens, simple agreement for future token (SAFT) valuations, etc.), Teknos Associates is able to innovate and aid our clients in finding the solution that bests fits their needs.
As the industry has evolved, crypto and token valuation issues are becoming an increasingly integral component in traditional valuation fields such as IRC 409a/ASC 718, ASC 820, intellectual property (IP), patents, and transfer pricing assessments. It’s critical for an advisor to understand the nuances of the cryptocurrency and blockchain industries to accurately assess the impact of these assets or sophisticated financial instruments in the context of more conventional valuation analyses as well.
The clients of Teknos Associates include visionaries of the blockchain industry. We work with developers of the leading protocols in the most promising blockchain sectors: Decentralized Finance (DeFi), NFTs, Blockchain Gaming, Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs), Automated Market Makers (AMMs), and exchanges (DEX, CEX, etc.), among others. In addition to serving operating companies at the forefront of the Web3 revolution, our clients also include the leading venture capital and private equity firms, family offices, and angel investors that are allocating capital judiciously across this emerging industry.
Given the fluid nature of the regulatory environment surrounding cryptocurrencies, it is essential for companies to partner with the right advisors in order to stay abreast of mission critical developments that can impact their core operations and plans for the future, in particular given that the positions of the IRS, SEC, and CFTC on cryptocurrencies, tokens, and related assets are still being formalized. In addition, the accounting and finance community perspective continues to evolve alongside that of the regulatory community, further muddying the waters that companies operating in the space must navigate.
As a result of our extensive experience in the industry, we have built countless relationships throughout the blockchain ecosystem which includes a network of the best legal advisors, tax advisors, and investors in the industry. Working with Teknos Associates provides access to a World-class network of experts that are best positioned to address any crypto or token valuation issue that may arise, letting you to allocate more time towards building the future of Web3.
