SharesPost and OKCoin partner Global Security Token Network

RELATED TOPICS​

OKCoin is to join SharesPost’s Global Liquidity And Settlement System (GLASS) as exchange nodes. In conjunction with SharesPost’s existing Alternative Trading System (ATS), GLASS will provide OKCoin with compliant access to the US investor market.

“With the security token market poised to take off in 2018 and beyond, we’re thrilled to be partnering with OKCoin on the upcoming launch of GLASS,” says Greg Brogger (pictured), Founder and CEO of SharesPost. “As one of the leading global digital asset exchanges, OKCoin will be an instrumental partner as we build a new, decentralised network that can facilitate the trading, certification, and custody of security tokens and tokenised assets in a streamlined, cost-efficient manner.”
 
GLASS is a compliant, global network of exchanges and OTC pools facilitating the trading, certification, and custody of security tokens and tokenised assets, beginning with SharesPost’s US ATS and OKCoin as initial exchange nodes. With GLASS, both SharesPost and OKCoin can serve expanded user bases and supported assets – particularly private growth equity assets, tokenised assets, and other emerging security products. As the network grows, OKCoin will also be able to offer its own compliant services in supported jurisdictions to other GLASS partners, and will soon be able to list security tokens in every major market globally.
 
“The adoption of digital assets will continue to accelerate, and security tokens are going to play a major role in that growth in the years ahead,” says Tim Byun, CEO of OKCoin USA. “We’ve always focused on offering customers the broadest choice and a premier user experience. Partnering with SharesPost on GLASS is another opportunity that enables us to continue advancing our customer solution and philosophy on a global scale.”
