Yesterday Crowdestor launched a new crowdfunding campaign to finance the acquisition of a licensed payment service provider from the Czech Republic: MaxiPay. This is a bold move by Crowdestor to integrate its entire P2P transactions ecosystem within its operational scope. A successful process will facilitate compliance with some of the conditions presented in the EU Crowdfunding Regulation proposal as well as lower existing operational costs with financial transactions. An interesting development to follow.

Crowdestor is inviting investors to finance acquisition of a licensed payment service provider from the Czech Republic. Later, they will have the option either to get their investment back plus interest or convert their loan and interest into equity of the new subsidiary company: Crowdestor Payments.

- Provide segregated accounts for investor’s funds;
- Lower costs associated to financial transactions;

Many other advantages can be added to this list. In fact, by integrating a licensed payment service provider into their organization ecosystem, Crowdestor is gaining control over the entire financial transaction process and achieve economic gains from it’s own success.
