Bitfinex Securities Ltd. a provider of blockchain-based investment products, has announced that it has launched its regulated investment exchange in the AIFC Fintech Lab, aiming at increasing accessibility to a large set of financial products for eligible members who wish to diversify their portfolio.
The Bitfinex Securities platform is designed to facilitate the raising of capital for issuers seeking to have their tokenized securities publicly traded through an easily accessible ‘admission to trading’ process. This step for the industry will widen access to a variety of innovative financial products, including notably blockchain-based equities and bonds, along with investment funds, the announcement said.
“As a pioneer in blockchain-based securities, we aim to be the most liquid exchange of its kind in the world,” said Paolo Ardoino, CTO at Bitfinex Securities Ltd. “Bitfinex Securities Ltd. provides a regulated platform serving small and medium-cap companies that are currently underserved by existing, inefficient capital markets.”
The Bitfinex Securities platform is available 24/7, an established practice in the digital token space. Furthermore, as the platform deploys leading-edge technologies to reduce costs, increase efficiency and optimize the success rate of capital raises, investors obtain access to a low-cost and high-performing international securities trading market, it said.
