CHICAGO (PRWEB) March 07, 2018
OpenFinance Network(OFN), the premier trading technology firm in alternative assets, today announced that its blockchain-based trading, clearing, and settlement platform is accepting applications to list compliant crypto security tokens. Assuming applicants meet listing standards, their security would be eligible for secondary market trading on the OFN platform, following any mandatory holding period (e.g., pursuant to Securities Act Rule 144(d)).
“OFN is an operational platform, today - and has been for some time,” said Tobin McComas, Head of Sales at OFN. “Our significant experience improving trading, clearing, and settlement in the private placement and alternative asset space puts us at the forefront of bringing transparency and secondary trading to the tokenization era. We are pleased to be among the first to not only offer security-token trading but also to have an established ability to execute against that offer.”
Juan Hernandez, CEO of OFN, added: “The need for a better approach to the underlying process for validating trades has been recognized for years. Blockchain – secure software protocols designed specifically for recording and verifying transactions in a distributed and therefore secure fashion – presented an obvious solution. Our team has the expertise and market knowledge to apply the technology in a way that makes sense for investors and large institutions, and we’re excited to bring these capabilities both to them and to the crypto markets at large.”
