OpenFinance Network launches first U.S. Security Token Trading Platform

From Beta to Live

In a long awaited announcement, OpenFinance Network has indicated that their Security Token Exchange has launched.  In doing so, OFN becomes the first platform to facilitate the trading of digital securities within the United States.

Until this point, the project had been in beta – meaning it was a nearly finished product, being offered to only select users for the purpose of hashing out any remaining ‘bugs’.

By going live, OFN essentially heralds a new age of liquidity, efficiency and opportunity for investors.  Secondary markets, representing a massive investor base, now allow for greater exposure of tokens distributed via STOs.  It is this ability to openly trade that equates to high levels of liquidity.

This platform is what many competitors are marching towards.  OpenFinance Network is the first one to achieve the goal.

Those that are interested in taking part in STOs, but are not accredited investors, should take solace.  Use of the platform is open to both accredited, and non-accredited investors.  This applies to both United States residents, as well as those outside of the nation’s borders.

OpenFinance Network

Founded in 2017, OpenFinance Network is based out of Chicago, Illinois.  Since launch, OFN has established themselves as an industry leader.  Their specialties lay in their established framework for security token services.

Speaking on the live launch of OFN was company CEO, Juan HernandezHe stated, “2018 is said to be the year of security tokens, but, for us, this is only the beginning…We are committed to supporting all levels of investors in participating in this burgeoning alternative asset ecosystem. As we continue to partner with more security token assets, we are able to offer people more opportunities for wealth generation.”

With their sights set on industry advancement, the sector should look very different during 2019.  Already boasting a plethora of tokens for investors to trade, expect for OFN to continue this growth.

One of the more notable tokens to be traded on the platform is that of Blockchain Capital (BCAP).  This was one of the industry’s first STOs to ever have been completed.  This is just one example of some of the projects that can be found on OFN.

Commentary

Various industry leaders have commented on the progress made by OpenFinance Network.  Here is what a few of them had to say:

CEO of Securitize, Carlos Domingo, says, “Security tokens, or digital securities, will only begin to make a meaningful contribution to the financial landscape when compliant trading can take place on a wide scale. We are proud to have partnered with OpenFinance Network to make this a reality.”

Co-Founder of Blockchain Capital, Brad Stephens, says “As creators of the world’s first security token, the BCAP, we are encouraged by the growth of the security token market and related infrastructure. We are excited to be partnering with OpenFinance Network that is enabling liquidity of security tokens in a regulatorily compliant way.”
