It wasn’t until the development of big banks and huge stock exchanges that payment often began to involve an intermediary. This trend continued till the exchange system took over the world and the over-the-counter investment (whether digitally or manually) became heavily regulated and thus problematic for investors.
How will OnPlace Boost Over-the-Counter Investment?
Since P2P transactions and investment are the cornerstone of the blockchain and smart contracts revolution, it is easy to see that the new assets have a big role to play in the future of the OTC investment and trading as they enable reliable P2P transfer of funds and smart contracts that allow automatic fulfillment of agreed terms. So, a new platform for the promotion of OTC investment is a perfect application of crypto technologies. OnPlace, a new OTC investment platform, aims to use its new approach for the funding of fastest growing small and medium tech companies in the world without the role of a governmental body bearing down on the two parties.
Customers can trade assets belonging to different startups and companies directly on the new OnPlace platform. Without the usual red tape, a fledgling company can raise a lot of funds through the new platform. The shares of the companies are transformed into tokenized smart contracts for each individual entity and the platform guarantees customer shareholder rights.
According to OnPlace’s portfolio on Tokendesk.com:
“We can say with absolute certainty that investment into private IT companies has become one of the most reliable ways to get a high return percentage on investments in a relatively short period of time. “
OnPlace’s Private Assets Tokenization System (PATS) is an approach used by the OnPlace platform to convert OTC assets from IT companies into tokenized assets for investment purposes. At first, the interested company aiming for releasing tokenized assets has to follow several steps starting with the establishment of a Marketplace Opportunity Window (MOW).
A selection of assets to be tokenized is done based on the criteria and communal discussions of crypto-investors. This is followed by tokenization and then circulation of these assets in the trading circles. The tokens are supported by their life cycle protocol that allows decentralized control by the token holder community.
Furthermore, the decentralization of audit and integration of management principles on each tradeable assets is ensured by the protocol. So, OnPlace has gone to lengths for the purpose of establishing a private and safe solution for the OTC field.
