Quick Take

  • Following the one-year anniversary to tZERO’s STO, its preferred equity token, TZROP, became tradable to non-accredited investors beginning August 12
  • Despite this, trade volumes have still been unimpressive as retail investors face the same frustrations with high fees, limited market hours, and lack of deposit options as accredited investors have for months

Following tZERO’s announcement that its own security token, TZROP, would be tradable to non-accredited investors on August 12, many believed that activity on its alternative trading system (ATS) would increase dramatically. So far, that has not been the case with daily trade volumes falling back below $15,000, leading one to believe that the low interest levels may have been caused by other factors.
