The Silicon Review
A big misconception when it comes to conducting digital securities offerings is that it alters the actual process for issuing securities. This isn’t true. Digital securities are still securities which means issuers must go through the same process required in a traditional securities offering. This includes working with legal counsel and other intermediaries to prepare all the legal documents and collect necessary information from investors. What digital securities paired with blockchain technology does do is remove friction and dramatically speed up the process. Securitize Markets, LLC (“Securitize Markets”), is a broker-dealer and member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) and Securities Investor Protection Corp (“SIPC”). Securitize Markets is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Securitize, Inc.
