The blockchain-powered platform is the first-of-its-kind alternative trading system (ATS) focused on over-the-counter securities to support cryptographic tokens for SEC registered securities.
WILMINGTON, Del. (PRWEB) January 04, 2018
DBOT ATS LLC makes capital raising and trading simple with an all-in-one system that supports a multi-tenant issuing portal, secondary trading and a blockchain ledger. The first to market solution reduces transaction cost and settlement time compared to current portals for crowd funded equities issued under Regulation A+.
Historically, investing in a crowd funded early stage company meant holding the security for a long amount of time because of the inherent lack of liquidity in those securities and the difficulty in transferring ownership. By combining issuance and secondary market and offering a hybrid of physical paper with blockchain-based smart-contract tokens, DBOT ATS has made a significant improvement in the investment process with a frictionless path from initial investment to liquidation and settlement of the transaction.
DBOT ATS Portal offers companies a simple process to raise capital. A company would just register and step through a template to create a tokenized security deal either using Regulation D, A+ or CF and once approve they are ready to accept new investments online. Investors can browse new deals on the website, request access to a deal and then fund an account either with crypto currencies or cash to pledge an investment. Shares offered through Reg A+ are traditionally eligible for resale by investors in the secondary market upon completion of an offering.
“This is a great achievement for DBOT ATS and a major step forward for the crowd funding industry.” says Shawn Sloves board member of the Delaware Board of Trade holding company (http://www.dbottrading.com) and CEO of Fundamental Interactions (http://www.finteractions.com). “The system being blockchain based signifies the start of the fusion of traditional and decentralized markets in a regulated entity, where securitized tokens become a reality for secondary trading.”
