Notable Q3 2023 milestones affirm INX as a frontrunner in the accelerating adoption of security tokens
INX’s main focus remains on creating a go-to holistic solution for founders and corporate partners to raise capital utilizing SEC-regulated security tokens and provide an efficient and transparent secondary market for this asset class, giving access to ‘first look’ investment opportunities to investors in the U.S. and globally. Taking advantage of the path created by the issuance of the INX Token, INX continues to lead other companies and founders in this process.
As of September 2023, seven (7) portfolio companies are actively raising capital in their primary offerings and are available to investors and clients of INX, exclusively on the INX.One trading platform.
The Company continues to enter into listing agreements with private companies in the U. S. and globally that seek to list their previously issued security tokens or common shares only for secondary market trading on INX.One. Two of such issuers are currently undergoing the due diligence and listing process.
Strategic Partnership with Republic
In June 2023, INX entered into a strategic collaboration agreement with Republic (“Republic”), a global financial firm operating a digital merchant bank and a network of investment platforms, pursuant to which the parties will seek to expand the breadth and depth of tokenization infrastructure and access to digital assets for investors worldwide.
By combining INX’s digital trading infrastructure and expertise in tokenized primary offerings and secondary market trading with Republic’s well-established primary distribution, wallet, and portfolio companies, both companies are poised to introduce a wide range of compliant solutions for both primary and secondary markets and redefine the way capital is raised, empowering both institutional and retail investors globally.
Q3 marks significant milestones in the expansion and readiness of the Company’s technology stack and infrastructure to fully integrate and list the Republic security token (Republic Note) on INX.One as well as future tokens from the Republic’s portfolio of companies.
The expansion of infrastructure includes the integration of the Republic Wallet solution as a new custody option for clients trading on INX.One. The Republic Wallet integration is expected to launch on INX.One by the end of 2023.
The Company also completed its integration with the Polygon blockchain. With this recent expansion, INX.One now supports trading in Ethereum, Avalanche, and Polygon blockchain-based tokens.
“As digital security tokens surge towards full adoption, it underscores the clarity of INX’s dedicated path. The security token market is rapidly expanding across asset classes, gaining traction among traditional institutions. The crucial steps taken in recent years have laid the foundation for INX to expand its operations and establish itself as a leader. With significant investments in global education for investors and issuers, coupled with strategic partnerships and collaborations, INX takes vital steps toward realizing the Company’s full potential, offering clarity on the new technology and the opportunities it presents,” commented Shy Datika, INX CEO.
