Through this partnership, C Block Capital will be channeling digital securities offering projects originating from the Greater China Region onto Securitize’s platform for the issuance and management of digital securities.
“We are excited to partner with C Block Capital to bring together Securitize’s proven digital security issuance and lifecycle management platform with a leading digital asset manager and advisor in the Greater China Region.

This strategic partnership allows both parties to leverage each other’s expertise and network to penetrate the fast-growing digital securities market, and to bring innovative financing solutions to the capital markets scene in the Greater China Region.”
