证券型TOKEN创企Securitize完成1270万美元A轮融资

总部位于美国旧金山的证券型 TOKEN 初创公司 Securitize 宣布完成了一笔 1270 万美元的 A 轮融资,领投方为Blockchain Capital,参投方包括知名加密货币交易所Coinbase旗下风险投资机构 Coinbase Ventures、Ripple 旗下风投分支 Xpring、OKEx 旗下风投 OK Blockchain Capital、Global Brain、以及 NXTP。

根据该公司联合创始人兼首席执行官 Carlos Domingo 表示,他们计划利用这笔最新融资加速推动在区块链上实现传统证券产品数字化升级。另外,作为本轮融资交易的一部分,Blockchain Capital 联合创始人兼管理合伙人 Brad Stephens 将会加入到 Securitize 公司的董事会。

事实上,如今的证券行业日常交易额规模非常庞大,高峰时期可以突破7万亿美元,而 Securitize 公司的目标就是把这些证券产品转移到去中心化的分类账本上,使之更加透明、可审计、且提升实时交易效率。

Carlos Domingo 认为,如今全球范围内的传统证券行业都在尝试代币化转型。Securitize 公司需要迅速抓住用这一新兴市场机遇,并在这笔最新融资的支持下扩大业务覆盖务范围,从拉丁美洲扩大到亚太地区、甚至世界其他地方,积极推动基于区块链的传统证券产品数字化业务发展。

现阶段,Securitize 公司的客户包括 22x、SPiCE VC和Augmate,他们还为 Blockchain Capital 旗下的BCAP证券型代币发行数字化证券。该公司还透露,基于Securitize协议的数字化证券现在也已经可以在 AirSwap 和OpenFinance Network 这两个受监管约束的平台上交易了。

对于本次投资,Ripple 旗下投资分支 Xpring 高级副总裁Ethan Beard表示,Ripple 未来会重点关注代币化证券行业,同时他还说道:

“Securitize 公司拥有一支非常出色的团队,而且专注于通过合规、流动性、并利用易于交易的数字资产拓展私人证券市场。”

Security token startup Securitize announced it has raised nearly $13 million in a Series A funding round Monday as part of its mission to digitize traditional securities products on a blockchain.

Led by Blockchain Capital, the equity investments were made to help the company bring on “knowledgeable investors” as it prepares for a security token offering, co-founder and CEO Carlos Domingo told CoinDesk. The company further aims to streamline its investor relations, build up liquidity and compliance efforts, and maintain capital formation.

With the deal, Blockchain Capital co-founder and managing partner Brad Stephens will join Securitize’s board of directors, the startup said. Coinbase Ventures, Ripple’s Xpring, OKEx’s OK Blockchain Capital, Global Brain and NXTP also participated.

Domingo explained that the company wants to transition the securities industry, currently estimated at some $7 trillion, to decentralized ledgers as they are more transparent, auditable and can facilitate instantaneous transactions.

He added:

“We believe the tokenisation of legacy securities industry is taking place right now on a global scale. To take advantage of this emerging market opportunity, we plan to grow our engineering team and geographic coverage from Latin America to the Asia Pacific Region and other parts of the world for business development.”

The company has already begun issuing digital securities for companies such as 22x, SPiCE VC and Augmate, as well as Blockchain Capital’s BCAP security token.

Digital securities based on the company’s protocol have also been traded on AirSwap and the OpenFinance Network in a regulatory-compliant manner, a firm noted.

Xpring senior vice president Ethan Beard explained in a statement that the Ripple initiative is focused on tokenized securities, among other areas.

“Securitize is great team focused on unlocking the private securities market with compliant, liquid, and easily tradable assets,” he added.
