STOKR is a one-stop-shop for companies to issue security tokens that enable access to exciting investment opportunities 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 Bitcoin codebase, Liquid supports much-needed privacy for users through its Confidential Transaction technology. It 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,” detailed Arnab Naskar, Co-Founder, Business Lead of STOKR.
The Liquid Securities platform is a user-friendly solution for businesses issuing security tokens on the Liquid Network, a federated Bitcoin sidechain. It is the first Liquid-based product platform launched by Blockstream.
“Other securities platforms force issuers to bake compliance in at smart contract level, but Liquid Securities moves that off-chain with multisig and the Liquid Authorizer,” said Samson Mow, Chief Strategy Officer of Blockstream. “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.”
