代币化证券平台iSTOX吸引了日本政府支持的投资者

2021-1-24 16:13

 

 iSTOX disclosed that it extended its Series A funding round with investment from the venture arm of the Japanese Investment Corporation (JIC-VGI) and the Development Bank of Japan (DBJ). Other new investors include Japan’s Juroku Bank and Mobile Internet Capital (MIC). This brings the total Series A funding to $50 million.

iSTOX’s platform is already in production, offering investments in real estate funds, hedge funds, bonds and other securities. Together with other backers and partnerships, iSTOX is positioning itself as a pan Asian digital assets provider. 

Existing investors Singapore Exchange (SGX), Japan’s Tokai Tokyo Financial Holdings and Korea’s Hanwha Asset Management also upped their investment. Other existing investors are Heliconia Capital Management, a subsidiary of Singapore state-backed Temasek Holdings and Thailand’s Kiatnaking Phatra Financial Group.

The company is licensed for digital asset issuance, custody and trading by the Monetary Authority of Singapore.

One of the countries missing from its Asian roster of investors is China. In November 2020, it signed an agreement with the Chongqing Monetary Authority to create a digital securities exchange in Chongqing for the Chinese market. 

Also last year, together with Tokai Tokyo Financial, iSTOX invested in a blockchain tokenization development company, Hash Dash Holdings.

“iSTOX will expand our footprint both geographically and in terms of investment offerings. We will roll out private issuances by blue-chip issuers that individual investors on our platform can subscribe to in bite-size portions,” said Oi Yee Choo, Chief Commercial Officer of iSTOX.

The iSTOX platform leverages smart contracts and blockchain to streamline the issuance and trading of digital securities and connects investors and issuers directly. This significantly reduces the time and cost of managing digital securities while providing more investment options. iSTOX estimates this cost reduction reduces the minimum investment amount to $20,000 or less from the typical $1 million required for private markets.

Meanwhile, there are multiple initiatives in Japan exploring security tokens. Nomura and Nomura Research founded  BOOSTRY and its ibet tokenization platform, in which SBI  subsequently invested. Securitize Japan is working with NTT Data on a compliant security token platform and with LIFULL on a real estate tokenization platform. 

 

iSTOX透露,其A轮融资获得了日本投资公司(JIC-VGI)和日本开发银行(DBJ)的投资。其他新投资者包括日本的Juroku银行和移动互联网资本(MIC)。这使得首轮融资总额达到5000万美元。


iSTOX的平台已经投产,提供对房地产基金、对冲基金、债券和其他证券的投资。与其他支持者和合作伙伴一起,iSTOX将自己定位为泛亚洲数字资产供应商。


现有投资者新加坡交易所(SGX)、日本东海东京金融控股公司(Tokai Tokyo Financial Holdings)和韩国韩华资产管理公司(Hanwha Asset Management)也增加了投资。其他现有投资者包括新加坡政府支持的淡马锡控股(Temasek Holdings)子公司Heliconia Capital Management,以及泰国kiatnake Phatra Financial Group。


该公司获得新加坡金融管理局(Monetary Authority of Singapore)的数字资产发行、托管和交易许可。


中国是其亚洲投资者名单上缺失的国家之一。2020年11月,它与重庆金融管理局签署了一项协议,在重庆为中国市场创建一个数字证券交易所。


同样是在去年,iSTOX与Tokai Tokyo Financial一起投资了区块链token化开发公司Hash Dash Holdings。


“iSTOX将在地理和投资方面扩大我们的足迹。我们将推出蓝筹股发行人的私人发行,个人投资者可以在我们的平台上认购少量股票。”


iSTOX平台利用智能合约和区块链来简化数字证券的发行和交易,并直接连接投资者和发行人。这大大减少了管理数字证券的时间和成本,同时提供了更多的投资选择。iSTOX估计,这一成本削减将最低投资额从私人市场通常需要的100万美元减少到2万美元或更少。


与此同时,日本有多项探索证券型通证的举措。野村(Nomura)和野村研究(Nomura Research)创立了BOOSTRY及其ibet代币化平台,SBI随后投资了该平台。Securitize Japan正在与NTT Data合作开发一个兼容的证券型通证平台,并与LIFULL合作开发一个房地产型通证平台。
