Issuance and Tokeny. Partnering with a Goal of Interconnectivity

 on

Issuance + Tokeny

In a recent press release, Issuance and Tokeny have announced a new strategic partnership.

This alliance seems well fitted. While Tokeny offers an end-to-end solution platform for companies looking to tokenize, Issuance differs greatly.  Issuance rather, acts as a bridging platform.  Meaning, for those companies that utilize the Tokeny platform, Issuance will be able to connect them with appropriate investors.

The ability of these companies to offer complimentary, rather than competitive, services should serve each well.

Commentary

The CEOs of each company discussed the partnership at hand.

Darren Marble, CEO of Issuance, stated, “There is a global lack of interconnectivity and access to the trillions of dollars worth of assets in traditional capital markets…We are excited to partner with companies such as Tokeny — whose tokenization and issuance services are crucial elements — in supporting the establishment of a digital securities ecosystem that will completely revolutionize the way in which the value and ownership of any asset class are realized, accessed, and distributed on a global scale.”

Luc Falempin, CEO of Tokeny, stated, “We are on the cusp of a new paradigm for investors, in which the value and ownership of any asset class – funds, real estate, equity – can now be digitized in the form of tokens capable of being subdivided, traded 24/7, and accessed globally…Through our partnership with Issuance, we are ushering in a world where decentralized communities can join forces to fund and manage shared assets through the tokenization of resources worldwide.”

Tokeny

Tokeny is a fintech company, founded in 2017, and is based out of Luxembourg.  Above all, their primary goal is to develop and offer a comprehensive platform to assist those looking into tokenization.

The end-to-end solution offered by Tokeny is the product of a team boasting decades of experience in a variety of fields. To learn more about the project at large, take a few minutes to watch the following interview with CEO, Luc Falempin.

Issuance

Issuance was founded in 2018, and is based out of Los Angeles, California.  Above all, the main purpose of the company is to act as a bridging platform. This means working to connect investors with appropriate digital securities issuers.

Darren Marble, CEO of Issuance, stated, “As digital securities continue to merge with the capital market infrastructure, support from companies such as VStock Transfer are critical to remain compliant throughout the lifespan of a DSO…We are thrilled to add VStock Transfer to our growing network of strategic partners and provide valuable registry and transfer services for our clients and their shareholders.”

Digital Securities Platform DX.Exchange, Survives First Week Scare

mm

Published

on

Dx.Exchange has had quite the tumultuous week. As the exchange closes its first week of operation, the team behind the project was able to dodge a potentially damaging situation.

From hordes of investors signing up pre-launch, to potentially disastrous glitches, here is a brief look at the problems that plagued week 1.

Details of the Problem

Upon launch of the platform, an anonymous user took it upon themselves to evaluate DX.Exchange. Shockingly, the user found information leaks that could potentially be harmful to a variety of parties.

Information being leaked ranged from password reset links, to names, email addresses, and more. With this, if someone were so inclined, they would be able to create backdoor entrances to user’s accounts.

It isn’t hard to imagine what kind of havoc a malicious individual could wreak.

Problem Solved

In an attempt to allay investor’s fears, Dx.Exchange has reached out the public with the following statement.

“We would like to thank the vigilant reporter, and our supportive community, who together with, brought his issue to our attention. We are happy to report that the vulnerability has been successfully patched, and no user funds were compromised. Our launch was met with a stellar response from our community eager to trade cryptocurrencies and digital stocks. Customer funds were always safe, our multi layer advanced monitoring and defense mechanism was able to avoid any further issue.”

This statement came after the company scheduled platform maintenance within hours of the news breaking.

Caught out Attention

DX.Exchange originally caught our attention due to the manner in which they offer their services. Rather than hosting digital securities of companies that have decided to tokenize, DX.Exchange has taken a different approach.

They are purchasing traditional shares of publically traded companies, and then issuing their own security tokens to investors, representing ownership of the shares. Due to the method in which this transaction takes place, the shares are held by DX.Exchange. However, investors holding the associated security token receive the full range of benefits associated with them (dividends, equity etc.).

Examples of these companies notably include Apple, Tesla, Amazon, and others.

Skeptics Abound

The CEO of DX.Exchange has stated that due to their licencing and region of operation, the SEC has no means in which to stop them from offering these services.

However, there are many skeptics of the exchange that believe it will eventually face due recourse. Through what means is unclear, but there are certainly going to be companies that do not want their shares tokenized in such a fashion.

Dx.Exchange

DX.Exchange is based out of Estonia, and was founded in 2018. Above all, the company acts as an online exchange, providing investors access to a variety of digital assets.

Prior to the events discussed here today, we recently spoke about DX.Exchange and the companies recent launch. To learn more about DX.Exchange, make sure to read the article below.

tZERO Completes Distribution of Security Token

Token Issuance

In a recent press release, tZERO has announced that it has finished distributing their native token. This token goes by ‘TZROP’, and is known as a digital security – representing ownership in tZERO itself.

While tZERO finished the token creation process months ago, per regulations, it was mandated that they remain in lock-up for a 90-day period. During this time, tokens were to be held by a third party custodial service.  Finally, this 90-day lockup came to an end on January 10th, resulting in the aforementioned distribution and press release.

Successful STO

This issuance process comes months after tZERO completed a wildly successful security token offering, or ‘STO’.  For example, taking place over a roughly 2 month span in mid-2018, tZERO was able to raise $134 million USD.  In addition, this raise was made possible through investments seen from over 1000 parties worldwide.

Commentary on the Issuance

Multiple representatives from tZERO spoke on the importance of this token issuance.

tZERO Executive Chairman, Patrick Byrne, stated, “The issuance of the world’s first public cryptosecurity, OSTKP, in 2016 was tZERO’s Chuck Yeager moment: we broke the speed of sound by introducing the concept of real-time trade settlement. Today marks our Yuri Gagarin moment, where we leave behind the confines of the known world of traditional capital markets and take the first steps towards a new market powered by blockchain.”

tZERO CEO, Saum Noursalehi, stated, “This is one of the first Security Token Offerings on a decentralized public network, and was conducted in full compliance with the U.S. securities laws…This is an exciting milestone for tZERO, and we are even more enthusiastic about the opportunities this will create for private and public companies wishing to raise capital through security token offerings, and for investors who wish to trade those securities.”

Next Up?

The next step to be taken by tZERO, and the most anticipated by investors, will be the launch of a trading platform. The company originally launched a prototype of this platform on April 9th of 2018.  However, it is anticipated that a full launch will occur midway through 2019.

The launch of this platform will facilitate trading via secondary markets.  Thereby, imbuing new levels of liquidity to previously illiquid assets.

We have recently reported on progress being made by tZERO. For instance, here are a look at a few noteworthy events from recent days.
