Blockchain-focused investment company Coinsilium has announced it intends to IPO on AIM, a sub-market of the London Stock Exchange, reports CoinDesk.

The company, which invests in early-stage blockchain startups, is due to float on AIM next month.

Launched in 2013 by the founders of bitcoin and blockchain incubator Seedcoin, Coinsilium – which has raised over £3m in funding to date – is thought to be the first company of its kind to go public on AIM.

Coinsilium's investment portfolio includes meXBT, a remittance company; Factom, a data layer provider; SatoshiPay, a nano payment processor; The Real Asset Company, a gold trading platform; and Rivetz, a security technology startup.

The company will list in the first half of August under the ticker COIN.
