Aziza Project Discusses its Tokenized Oil & Gas Fund in Exclusive Audio Interview with NetworkNewsWire

Los Angeles, California, UNITED STATES

NEW YORK, Nov. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NetworkNewsAudio -- NetworkNewsAudio (NNA), a NetworkNewsWire (NNW) Solution that delivers clients unparalleled visibility, recognition and brand awareness in the investment community, today announces the online availability of its interview with Aziza Project LLC, a client of NNW and fund that tokenizes high potential oil and gas businesses in Africa, enabling them to raise funds for profit and social good.

The interview can be heard at

NNW’s Stuart Smith introduces Aziza Project CEO Robert Pyke in an interview that highlights the company’s innovative investment platform, milestones, and strategies for continued growth.

Pyke first describes the Aziza Project as a tokenized investment fund focused on investing in oil and gas businesses operating throughout southern Africa. As Pyke explains, the company’s crypto token, the Aziza Coin, represents an indirect fractional ownership interest in the Aziza Project. This means that Aziza Coin holders, in effect, own part of the Aziza Project and are economic beneficiaries able to share in any of the profits made by the organization.

Aziza’s focus on southern Africa is driven by the company’s view of the region as largely untapped and unexplored due to disinvestment during the apartheid era. Aziza’s first investment, Africa New Energies (“ANE”), has been in operation for six years, last year rejecting a bid for $500 million. “The Aziza Project owns 20 percent of this business, so we are sitting on an asset worth $100 million at the moment,” says Pyke.

The organization’s leadership team is diverse, with Pyke’s professional background spanning 20 years in consumer goods. Based in the UK, Pyke collaborates with colleagues in South Africa, where the Aziza team is comprised of marketing and project managers, a blockchain architect, a software developer and an actuary.

The discussion then moves to Aziza’s milestones, which include the formation of the dynamic team of solid, experienced and professional resources. The company also formed its asset backed security token; has risen to the time-consuming challenge of navigating the regulatory environment; and has completed all communications, marketing materials and the offering memorandum.

Pyke notes that while the Aziza Project has accomplished much, it has advanced to “the end of the beginning of the project.” Now, he says, “the rubber hits the road, and we’re fully-engaged in fundraising,” primarily engaging with U.S. investors.
