Danish investment broker Lars Hedensted Steffensen, who left investors angry after taking his Ghana gold investment firm into bankruptcy just last year, is behind a company that is seeking to raise $547m through crypto currencies, Ghanaguardian.com can reveal.

Steffensen, for many years, had run the London-based hedge fund Ebullio, which had ownership interests in gold, silver and copper mines in Ghana, Turkey and some few countries.

The group collapsed last year, Lars H. Steffensen personally went bankrupt and got a horde of angry investors on his neck.

Instead, the activities have been transferred to Ecommodities, where Steffensen is formally only affiliated with as a consultant, but according to the information provided by the Danish newspaper Borsen, he is a leading figure.

E-commodities plans to raise $547 million in January this year through crypto currencies.
