Creatd CEO and Chairman Jeremy Frommer commented, “It is usually quite difficult for retail investors outside of the U.S. to trade OTC securities or U.S. equities. Most U.S. brokerage firms do not offer the ability to deposit or trade OTC stocks. The only way to survive today’s market conditions is to invest in broadening a company’s shareholder base. There are very few execution and communication channels that can accomplish this goal. Our company is at the forefront of this discovery process.”
