As mentioned in our previous articles, the need for licenses when dealing with securities is crucial.
Therefore, we are thrilled to announce our partnership with InvestaX, a leading digital securities and investment platform.
InvestaX is a Singapore-headquartered, MAS-licensed* investment and trading platform for digital securities (DSO) and security tokens (STO) of global private markets deals, including venture, private equity, real estate, and digital SPACs.
InvestaX offers end-to-end solutions for the issuance, trading, and custody on one platform.
Founded in 2015, InvestaX is an early pioneer in using blockchain technologies to develop leading technology-driven investment vehicles called digital securities offerings, removing friction and delivering end-to-end digital securities issuance, trading, and custody solutions on one platform.
InvestaX has a Capital Markets Services (CMS) license issued by the Monetary Authority of Singapore. The Monetary Authority has also approved InvestaX of Singapore to the regulatory sandbox under the recognized market operator (RMO) regime (this is essentially equivalent to a broker-dealer license and a license to operate a securities exchange).
Why InvestaX Is Working With IX Swap
Despite developing one of the world’s first end-end security token issuance platforms, there was still a real problem that the industry was facing, which was trading liquidity. Most STOs currently trade over-the-counter (OTC) as there is a lack of market makers in the security token ecosystem.
IX Swap solves a critical infrastructural problem for the security token industry. It made sense to form this partnership given that IX Swap needed a licensed broker-dealer partner, and Investa X needed a liquidity solution. It was mutually beneficial and was a win-win for both platforms.
IX Swap’s true value proposition to STO platforms is solving the one single most important requirement for any STO issuer, that is the ability for the issuer or any investor to start the first liquidity pools. This is completely game-changing for the entire STO industry and will bring the same surge of growth in trading volumes that Uniswap delivered to cryptocurrency trading on their decentralized exchange.
Julian Kwan, the founder of InvestaX, is also a co-founder of IX Swap. InvestaX is run by a team of experienced capital market, legal, and blockchain professionals that are fully tuned into the pulse of the security token market and have been working tirelessly to develop the proper infrastructure needed in the STO industry.
What Future InvestaX Sees for IX Swap
IX Swap is an extremely innovative solution for the STO space and will always be needed in the STO industry even if ‘traditional’ market makers enter the picture.
Consider cryptocurrencies like BTC, ETH, and other large-cap/blue-chip cryptos generally traded on significant exchanges with market makers. Similarly, we see these more significant issuances traded on centralized exchanges like InvestaX with dedicated market makers in the future.
However, there are many obscure altcoins that are much less likely to be found on any centralized exchange now traded on the DEX platforms like Uniswap, Sushiswap, etc. These altcoins resemble a lot of STOs in the market, which is unique and might not appeal to the everyday investor.
We see these STOs being listed and traded on IX Swap indefinitely.
IX Swap is the world’s FIRST DeFi AMM and liquidity pools for security tokens and tokenized stocks.
