Currency.com, a next-generation blockchain technology firm has recently announced the launch of the world’s first tokenized securities exchange. The platform will allow investors to trade, invest in, and benefit from exposure to, real-world financial instruments by directly using cryptocurrencies.
The Currency.com platform in partnership with the Capital.com group, a best-in-class trading platform is set to revolutionize cryptocurrency investment by enabling anyone who has Bitcoin or Ethereum to trade financial assets, commodities and indices from the world’s biggest companies – without even putting their crypto holdings under price pressure or moving to fiat.
The Problem with the current system is that the biggest and most liquid cryptocurrencies do not allow participation in regulated financial markets. The crypto-owners still have limited opportunities to participate in lucrative, established financial exchanges. The Currency.com platform will provide the users access to more than 10,000 global financial assets over the next few years and notably more than 150 are available at the launch.
Currency.com is the first blockchain business to be licensed by the High Technology Park (HTP) in Belarus. The platform implements best-in-class Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) laws and strict data and customer protection rules to the same level as the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).
Ivan Gowan, CEO of Currency.com, said, “We are excited to be launching this revolutionary blockchain venture and providing crypto investors with a concrete option to diversify their portfolio by investing in traditional asset classes, without the pressure of exchanging cryptocurrencies into fiat money to do so. Currency.com is committed to providing users with superior security and fraud protection, and preventing any potential risks by leveraging the full traceability of blockchain transactions and adhering to the strictest regulatory standards set by Belarus’ Decree No. 8 ‘On the Development of a Digital Economy.”
Currency.com will be authorizing new users on the platform gradually to ensure optimal functionality as the service scales. The iOS and Android apps will be available for beta testing from February 2019.
