1) Team

InvestaX founders and team have been deeply involved in the tokenization of securities since the very beginning of the industry in 2018. We have attended hundreds of  blockchain conferences to learn and understand how blockchains will change the private markets and what are the challenges and where are the real opportunities for our community. We ran the first “Security Token” events in Asia when no one had ever heard the term STO before and now have a formidable team decentralized around the globe across all our departments including blockchain, technology, legal, investments, regulation, marketing, DeFi (Decentralized Finance) + TradFi (Traditional Finance) specialists and more. We are proud of the fact that we have built the most open architecture platform globally to benefit our issuers and investors so they can gain a competitive edge and arm themselves with the necessary tools to succeed in the new economy.

2) Technology

InvestaX runs on the most number of blockchains in the industry allowing you the greatest choice to issue any of your assets digitally. We have focused on public blockchains for years, because they are the most scalable and widely used infrastructure to issue security tokens and NFTs and all other digital assets live on them as well. We remain agnostic to blockchains and continue to iterate and integrate with exciting protocols as the industry grows. Private blockchains are also an option and are compatible for certain businesses and products, but are inherently close-ended systems (Web 2.0) and although they improve efficiencies and transparency for an existing business, private blockchains cannot easily collaborate with other platforms and have no connection to any other digital assets including stablecoins, cryptocurrencies, digital securities, NFTs and DAOs ( Web 3.0), therefore limiting interoperability and scalability.

3) New Innovative Product offerings

InvestaX is focused on delivering the next generation of investment products to our users and clients. We are working on everything the banks are not focused on. Tokenized equity in Bitcoin mining firms, tokenized shares in a BAYC blue chip NFT, adding NFTs to traditional investment products such as real estate and private equity, and more. This new technology is not about simply doing what we have done before a little better, this is a paradigm shift in what can now be done in the private markets. Using smart contracts and blockchains as the underlying infrastructure to issue, trade, lend or borrow private market assets in a tokenized format provides new use cases to idle assets which didn’t exist in the private markets.

InvestaX has pioneered the use of smart contracts and blockchains to develop world first investment vehicles including the first digital ESOP, digital SPAC, Tokenized NFT and Evergreen real estate token fund and now working on “VC fund 2.0” and Dao’s too. Our team is focused on remaining a leader in the development of the next generation of investment products.

4. Market Making Solutions

InvestaX has the only automated market making solution for liquidity in the STO industry globally. As a nascent industry, traditional market makers are slowly starting to come to market but crypto market makers are not yet licensed to market securities. So we partnered with IX Swap which is the world’s first AMM (link to article explain ix swap)for security tokens and NFTs. The value proposition is unique and second to none, this is a killer app. IX Swap allows any issuer or investor holding a security token to start the first trading and liquidity pools, legally and compliantly. This is an incredible innovation and solves the number one problem remaining in the STO industry, which is “liquidity”. No one else in the STO space has a market making solution like this and any investor can participate in the market making pools and subsequent fees. This is game changing.

5. Borrowing, Lending and Staking Services

InvestaX is pioneering services for investors – allowing them to borrow or lend against their digital securities assets, creating even further value for our community. We forecast the same explosive growth for these services that the cryptocurrency industry experienced when these same services were launched in that asset class.

6. Network & Partnerships

InvestaX has the largest number of partner platforms globally, including broker dealers, custodians and other exchanges. We can help clients launch globally and extract the most value out of issuing a security on a blockchain. We have 75,000 strong community online and across our social media channels.

7. Global Investor Network

InvestaX is built to offer global product for global investors. We offer the technology and regulatory framework for any investment manager to tokenize their assets for their investor network. Through our own direct network and through our partner platforms around the world, we also help connect issuers and investors, but our core focus is helping Web 2.0 investment companies and investors become Web 3.0 compatible. Bespoke services are offered such as the matching of issuers with a target pool of investors, as well as greater flexibility in terms of capital raises and types of product offerings.

8) Education & Learning

InvestaX believes in community and education. New technology married with existing markets has resulted in explosive value creation as evidenced in the public market industry. To help our community we developed the first course related to tokenized securities and digital securities approved by the IBF and offered to financial professionals at Credit Suisse, Julius Baer, OCBC, CIMB, to name a few.

We continue to add value to our community and now have provided access for all our community to the IX Swap Academy which is your learning hub for all things STO and more. It’s never too early or too late to start learning — and it doesn’t have to be complicated.

Our co-founder Alice Chen, is a regular guest lecturer at Singapore Management University SMU on the topic of Blockchain and Digital Securities, and also sits as the Chair of the Digital Financing Subcommittee of the Singapore Fintech Association spearheading important topics related to digital financing.

Our co-founder Julian Kwan, heads up the Infinity and Beyond podcast interviewing the leading minds and businesses in blockchain and sharing best practices, lessons learnt and new innovations with our community each week.
