STOKR, a European marketplace for issuing tokenized digital shares, today announced that they will support Blockstream’s Liquid Securities platform. This will enable companies to issue shares on the Liquid Network, a Bitcoin sidechain, under the legal certainty of the EU capital market laws.
As a one-stop-shop for companies to issue security tokens, STOKR enables access to exciting investment opportunities both for retail and professional investors. They allow companies to issue shares on the Liquid Network and support them to comply with regulatory requirements.
“Built on the battle-tested Bitcoin codebase, Liquid supports much-needed privacy for users through its Confidential Transaction technology. Liquid has been created by one of the most accomplished teams in the Bitcoin industry, and we are proud to support the Liquid Securities platform for a streamlined securities issuance.”
– Arnab Naskar, Co-Founder, Business Lead of STOKR
The Liquid Securities platform, launched back in May, is a user-friendly solution for businesses issuing security tokens on the Liquid Network, a federated Bitcoin sidechain. The Liquid Securities platform is the first Liquid-based product launched by Blockstream.
“Other securities platforms force issuers to bake compliance in at smart contract level, but Liquid Securities moves that all off-chain with multisig and the Liquid Authorizer. This allows issuers to stay flexible in the face of shifting global regulations. Now with STOKR’s platform supporting Liquid Securities, issuing compliant security tokens on Liquid is easier than ever.”
– Samson Mow, Chief Strategy Officer of Blockstream
