DigiShares Integrates with Fortress Trust to Offer Cutting-Edge Payments and Custody Solutions

Their interaction with payments and custody – not only for crypto but also fiat – needs to be seamless. The combination of DigiShares and Fortress Trust is a big step forward.”

DigiShares Signs With Oasis Pro Markets LLC For Secondary Trading Capabilities

DigiShares is proud to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Oasis Pro Markets LLC, an SEC registered Alternative Trading System (“ATS”), to offer secondary trading capabilities for future security token offerings in accordance with applicable regulatory restrictions.

Oasis Pro Markets has developed a US-regulated ATS authorized to allow subscribers to trade digital (“blockchain”) securities and make payment for those digital securities in digital cash (i.e. stable coins) or fiat.

Typically, investments in start-ups tend to be illiquid, i.e. investors may not be able to sell their shares easily. Unless there is an Initial Public Offering or an acquisition, other options for exit may be burdened with high intermediation fees and archaic processes. This leads to sellers having to settle for a lower price than what their shares are actually worth (the “illiquidity discount”).

By working with Oasis Pro Markets LLC, DigiShares private company shareholders will have the potential opportunity to seek liquidity through a regulated trading venue.

DigiShares has recently launched a capital raise under Reg D and Reg S, in the form of a Security Token Offering, available to investors outside the U.S. and accredited investors within the U.S. The DIGI tokens, which were minted on Ethereum and will be distributed to investors, represent preferred equity shares in DigiShares’ Delaware corporation. The DIGI tokens will be listed on Oasis Pro Markets once the one-year regulatory lock-up period has ended. For this listing, DigiShares will be acting as its own digital Transfer Agent.

Claus Skaaning, CEO of DigiShares: “We look forward to working with Oasis Pro Markets to provide a pathway to potential liquidity for our investors.  We view Oasis Pro Markets as an important company in our ecosystem on many different projects involving our own clients in the Real-World Assets space.”

Pat LaVecchia, CEO of Oasis Pro Markets: “We view DigiShares as a leading player in the blockchain space. We are thrilled to partner with them and look forward to continued collaboration as we grow the security token ecosystem together.”

Founded by seasoned Wall Street and blockchain veterans, Oasis Pro, Inc. is a leading fintech and blockchain company with a mission to bridge the world of traditional finance, blockchain and decentralized finance, “DeFi.” Oasis Pro’s subsidiary, Oasis Pro Markets, is a FINRA member firm that operates a multi-asset ATS (“OATSPRO”) to allow primary issuance and trading of public and private multi-asset digital securities as well as a full-service investment bank.

Leading Tokenization Firm DigiShares Introduces Three New Solutions

DigiShares, a global provider of infrastructure for tokenization of real-world assets, has recently introduced three new configurations of its market leading platform, to cater for three different market segments. This enables DigiShares to support the main three tokenization use cases, crypto-settled, fiat-settled, and internally settled. Each configuration is optimized for full automation and ease of use.

The first configuration supports full crypto payment workflows and internal settlement in a crypto balance. To avoid currency exchange-rate risk, DigiShares recommends to use trusted stablecoins for payment and settlement, such as USDC and EUROC (when available). This configuration assumes that issuers and users have their own wallets (such as Metamask) to facilitate transactions such as whitelisting of wallets, purchase of security tokens, and trading with security tokens. Trading works with a peer-to-peer smart contract-based atomic swap with no counterparty risk.

The second configuration is for use cases where the majority of investors are not familiar with crypto or prefer not to use crypto. For this use case, we support a fully fiat-based configuration where investors can pay in fiat (USD, EUR, etc.) from their normal bank accounts via wire, ACH, and credit card. Security tokens will be kept internally in the platform so there is no requirement for users to have a wallet.

The third configuration is for more regulated or institutional use cases where the issuer wants to provide investors with an internal wallet with crypto funds available to invest at any time. This configuration allows investors to top up their internal balance with stablecoins (USDC, EUROC, etc.) and to use these funds to invest in the listed projects. The system will maintain investors’ wallet balance internally. Since most issuers are not licensed to safekeep investor funds, this configuration typically requires custody integration.

DigiShares is blockchain agnostic and supports both Ethereum, Polygon, BSC, Ravencoin, and soon Polymesh. Other chains will be supported later in 2023. We provide a user-friendly token studio that supports minting security tokens with common parameters for all these chains. For EVM-compatible chains we provide our own heavily tested and audited implementation of ERC-1404.

Claus Skaaning, CEO at DigiShares, says, “As the crypto industry matures, we see the crypto configuration as the most interesting. Longer term we expect the trend go towards self-custody, either in Metamask, or in similar wallets associated with exchanges, such as Coinbase or Binance Wallets, or more institutional wallets, such as Fireblocks Wallet. In any case, we are prepared to meet most requirements with the above three configurations”.

MarketSpace Capital and DigiShares Announce the Release of their Co-developed Investor Management Platform

When MarketSpace Capital and DigiShares founders first met, the Houston-based REPE firm was searching for an investor management platform that could surpass legacy solutions, giving them a competitive edge as a sponsor and making their business future-proof.

Because there existed no off the shelf product that met these requirements, both companies proceeded to enter into an agreement to co-develop an entirely new investor management platform.

Today, both companies are proud to announce that the platform they co-developed together is now live and accessible to MarketSpace Capital Limited Partners and Investors. 

Other real estate firms will also be able to white-label the new version of the DigiShares platform to use as their own investor management system.

DigiShares CEO, Claus Skaaning stated, “It has been a privilege working with the MarketSpace team this past year, leveraging their unparalleled experience, to bring major upgrades to our platform. MarketSpace Capital has been a pioneer in the application of new technologies to their business, and we’re excited that many other real estate firms will be able to benefit from this groundbreaking work.”

This new platform provides:

  • A seamless subscription flow from the point of indicating interest, going through accreditation / KYC checks, e-signing subscription agreements, to investing. 
  • The ability to track the value of investments in real time, reflecting accrued preferred return, and how much capital an investor needs to receive before a Sponsor starts profit-sharing.
  • A streamlined flow for project updates, with the ability to receive new updates and view prior updates in the same spot.
  • The ability to leverage blockchain technology in the form of smart contracts and tokenization to facilitate further automations and investor liquidity

Sohail Hassan, Managing Partner of MarketSpace Capital, said about the platform: “The DigiShares team have been an absolute pleasure to work  with. The idea started from a need we saw in the market for an investor management tool that incorporated elements of blockchain technology. And, because DigiShares is laser focused on making the buying & selling process of shares in real estate more efficient, we saw this as a perfect fit and almost a year later, have created a tool that every sponsor should consider using in order to make managing their investors more efficient .”
