Security Token Exchanges

1. Securitize

Securitize initially launched in 2017 as a digital securities issuer, and since then, it has successfully tokenized some of the most successful security tokens, such as Blockchain Capital (BCAP) and SpiceVC (SPICE). This is currently the most successful security tokens issuer.

In 2021, Securitize launched an exchange to offer a marketplace to buy and sell digital securities. The marketplace is divided into two sections.  The “primary market” serves as a market offering the option to purchase STOs (security token offerings), and the “secondary market” functions more like a traditional exchange with users buying and selling from one another.

Securitize Markets is a member of FINRA, registered with the SEC, and a SIPC member.

2. INX

INX was the first US-based decentralized security token trading platform; previously, it was known as Openfinance until INX Limited acquired it. This is a great option for investors wishing to trade in security tokens. INX has partnered with the largest token issuers, and those tokens are automatically pre-qualified to be listed on the exchange.

Some of the features of this exchange:

  • A global registry of qualified entities and securities creates a mechanism for a decentralized securities depository that provides a public governance model to ensure maximum transparency and protection for investors.
  • The system is designed for traditional alternative assets and token-based securities and allows for a streamlined, compliant process from issuance to secondary market trading.
  • Assets may also be registered with the SEC/EDGAR, and that data can be referenced from the OFN as a subset of the Asset data object.
