Securrency Enters Strategic Partnership with SharesPost

Securrency,
a provider of financial and regulatory technology products for the
tokenized issuance and trading of securities, today announced a
strategic partnership with SharesPost,
a leading provider of private company liquidity solutions and private
capital markets research. This partnership will help drive tokenized
securities trading to the SharesPost platform by providing liquidity via
SharesPost’s Alternative Trading Platform (ATS) to issuers of private
tokenized securities availing themselves of Securrency’s compliance and
security technologies.

“Enabling the issuance of securitized tokens can be complex, especially
when it comes to maintaining compliance with regulations in multiple
jurisdictions,” said Dan Doney, CEO of Securrency. “We’re thrilled to be
working together with the innovative team at SharesPost’s Alternative
Trading Platform as our technologies deliver essential security and
compliance features to support primary offerings and secondary-market
trading of tokenized securities across SharesPost’s impressive range of
services.”

This latest partnership continues Securrency’s “network effect” strategy
of partnering with other innovative companies and financial services
providers to deliver best-in-breed security and compliance. Securrency
offers a unique Compliance Aware Token™ that has compliance and
transactional rules embedded in a compliance layer to facilitate
securities offerings on virtually any distributed ledger or legacy
platform. This sophisticated yet user-friendly approach is much more
flexible, powerful, and secure than alternative “white list” approaches.
In addition, Securrency’s Know Your Wallet™ tools can detect money
laundering and other illegal activity, thereby minimizing the risk of
bad actor participation in the distribution and trading of tokenized
securities.

“Our new Initial Coin Offering (ICO) platform has grown tremendously
since launching earlier this year, and we wanted to ensure our users met
compliance regulations without any additional hassle,” said Greg
Brogger, CEO and Founder of SharesPost. “Partnering with Securrency was
an easy decision, as they seamlessly integrated into our platform and
help our customers to create compliant Security Token Offerings (STOs).”

Doney added, “SharesPost’s visionary leadership rightly understands the
need to create attractive liquidity options for investors, a vision that
has also been at the core of Securrency’s technology solutions since our
inception three years ago. Through our strategic partnership with
SharesPost, issuers and investors have immediate access to a secure and
fully-compliant end-to-end marketplace for tokenized securities.”
