LONDON, 31 JAN 2019: Tokenise today announces the launch of a new tokenised equity crowdfunding platform — www.tokenise.io — providing access for those seeking to raise capital to a wide community of investors and offering an efficient, auditable and scalable system using blockchain technology.
Tokenise will lead the way in delivering capital raises through the offering of tokenised securities, enabling start-ups and SMEs to tokenise their equity and raise capital in a safe and transparent environment.
As well as the crowdfunding primary market, Tokenise will create a secondary market for curated tokens. Here the buying and selling of investments in unlisted companies is possible with no need for intermediaries between investors and the fundraising company. This will be through a Bulletin Board and will be available 24/7.
Transparency and price discovery will be enabled, while the platform will facilitate liquidity in a traditionally illiquid market.
The approach by Tokenise will be fully compliant with the FCA rules in the UK. Embedded processes and procedures within the platform will ensure that users of the platform comply with the regulations around security offerings. Tokenise will take these offerings one step further on the journey to a full exchange listing where suitable. Custody of assets will be through our FCA regulated partner to ensure that investor funds are protected.
According to Martin Graham, former Director of Markets and Head of AIM at the London Stock Exchange:
Tokenise has the vision and potential, through utilising the right global partners, to create a network which can ultimately provide a platform for a genuine global marketplace for tokenised assets. The process of bringing together providers and consumers of growth capital especially for smaller enterprises is still deeply inefficient. Tokenise can play an important role in solving this problem.
