Blockstream, a Canada-based blockchain technology and financial cryptography company, announced on Wednesday the launch of its new Liquid Securities Platform, which is described as a bitcoin sidechain that supports the creation of new digital assets in addition to the ability to peg-in bitcoin to the network. However, issuing a new asset on Liquid typically requires getting your hands dirty with some code. The company revealed:
“With the launch of the Liquid Securities platform, businesses can quickly issue Liquid-based security tokens with the click of a button, and establish sophisticated rulesets to conform with their regulatory requirements with no software engineering experience required.”
Blockstream also reported that the Liquid Securities platform is initially launching with a limited set of partners that are exploring many new tokenized securities use-cases on Liquid:
- BnkToTheFuture: an online investment platform plans to issue tokenized equity in the largest companies in crypto on Liquid.
- TokenSoft: a multi-blockchain issuance platform is integrating with the Liquid Securities API to provide Liquid-based issuance tools to its users.
- Atomic Capital: the issuance and fundraising platform plans to add Liquid to supported solutions available to customers looking to issue securities.
- Zenus Bank: an innovative new American bank that allows individuals and companies worldwide to open accounts remotely is planning to issue tokenized equity via Liquid Securities as part of a private offering..
- Pixelmatic: a fast-growing game studio led by Samson Mow will soon launch a security token on Liquid. Their latest game, Infinite Fleet, will also feature an in-game Liquid-based utility token to power its economy.
Blockstream went on to add:
“The Liquid Securities platform marks the first Liquid-based product to be launched by Blockstream, and a major step in commercializing the fast-growing inter-exchange settlement network.”
