The Royal Canadian Mint has selected Origin Merchant Partners (Origin), to facilitate the sale of its MintChip digital currency product.
Origin was selected as the result of a competitive procurement process.
"The Mint is pleased with the recent work completed by Boston Consulting Group in successfully packaging the MintChip assets, as well as identifying and engaging interested parties. We are well prepared for the next stage," said Bob Zintel, Director. "As we embark on the sale phase, we believe Origin is an excellent partner with a level of experience and expertise that will help us maximize the return on our investment."
Working with Origin, the Mint expects to begin actively marketing the MintChip assets to the private sector in early February 2015.
