The aggregate security token market cap had increased over 45% (month-to-month) to nearly $145 million in June 2020.
As reported in July 2020, blockchain-enabled security tokens outperformed the average of major US indices including Dow Jones, S&P 500, and Nasdaq in June 2020. The strong performance was driven by Overstock.
tZERO CEO Saum Noursalehi recently published an update on progress pertaining to the digital security platform. tZERO is part of Overstock (NASDAQ:OSTK), a company that has experienced a solid increase in its share price since the beginning of the year.
In a “Dear Investors” letter, Noursalehi said the value of their blockchain-based ecosystem is “becoming increasingly relevant as companies remain private longer, while their investors have limited options for secondary liquidity.”
Noursalehi said that tZERO’s Alternative Trading System (ATS) is currently transacting hundreds of thousands of trades each month and growing rapidly.
Overstock said during its July 30, 2020 earning call that they are generating sustainable profitable growth.
The company currently claims over 95% of security token trading volume via the tZERO ATS. The trading platform recently signed its first 3rd party issued security token, Aspen Digital, to trade on its marketplace.
