The decentralized startups of the future will all run on blockchain.

Work with global leaders in blockchain investment and advisory services.


Newtown Partners is a blockchain investment and advisory services company with teams operating out of offices in San Francisco, U.S. and Cape Town, South Africa.

We have assisted startups that we’ve invested in, with designing and issuing cryptocurrency tokens since 2016. As a result, we have acquired specialized skills and experience in token economics, token sale design and demand generation. We now specialize in token economy design, implementation and maintenance of customized digital token economies for our clients.

Newtown Partners invests significant time and skill into ensuring that the tokens we work with have utility and value across a wide spectrum of industries and use cases. Recent industries that we’ve worked in include identity management (Civic), financial services (Wala), augmented reality (Augmentors), media, cybersecurity and esports.
