The first trading platform for security tokens to be launched by Currency.com

January 15, 2019, 1:30PM EDT

Currency.com is launching the first fully-functional trading platform for security tokens after receiving funding from Larnabel Ventures and VP Capital, according to a news release. The platform is accessible to all investors, and there will be over 10,000 tokenised securities available there—users will be able to use bitcoin and ethereum to acquire them.

"We are excited to be launching this revolutionary blockchain venture and providing crypto investors with a concrete option to diversify their portfolio by investing in traditional asset classes, without the pressure of exchanging cryptocurrencies into fiat money to do so," said Ivan Gowan, CEO of Currency.com. "Currency.com is committed to providing users with superior security and fraud protection, and preventing any potential risks by leveraging the full traceability of blockchain transactions and adhering to the strictest regulatory standards set by Belarus' Decree No. 8 'On the Development of a Digital Economy."

Currency.com provides access to what has been previously available only through the stock exchange, said Viktor Prokopenya, Founder and CEO of VP Capital. Thus, the “groundbreaking cryptocurrency technology” gives investors opportunities they might not have had before, thanks to Decree No. 8 On the Development of a Digital Economy passed in Belarus, said Prokopenya.

Currency.com will actually be the first blockchain-based business to be licensed by the High Technology Park in Belarus since blockchain businesses were made legal there.
