- The Coinbase, Sony, MUFG, and Santander-backed project, Securitize, launches ‘Instant Access'
- A project aiming to open up and ease trading digitized assets in a peer-to-peer network.
Securitize, a tokenization firm launched a service that allows users an easy and secure gateway to instantaneously trade digitized assets through a web-link. The peer-to-peer gateway offers KYC/AML compliant users a direct way to purchase and sell cryptocurrencies and digitized assets in a bid to boost adoption rates.
The new platform is highly touted as a solution to the “counterparty risk” synonymous with centralized crypto exchanges. According to the released report, Instant Access aims to open up a convenient and regulation-compliant gateway for users to exchange tokenized assets over a web-link.
According to a spokesperson from Securitize, the new platform is expected to provide investors in private tokenized assets to securely exchange their assets. The spokesperson further said,
“What has typically been a very burdensome and time-consuming process (trading private securities) can now be completed compliantly in seconds with no fees other than the “gas costs” associated with the Ethereum blockchain.”
The new platform came to be through collaboration with the Airswap team, an Ethereum-based project. Airswap was part of the team that facilitated the registration of Securitize as the first-ever U.S compliant tokenization platform.
So how can you trade directly on a web link?
Instant Access is built to transact the exchanges off-chain – reducing the waiting time and ensuring the security of the assets from hacking. Users communicate on an off-chain platform in the following way;
If you are a seller you need to send a web-link to prospective buyers through messages on social media, text, or email. Once the buyers receive the message, if they wish to buy, they click the link and follow through the steps provided. Once the buyer initiates the exchange, the funds and assets are transferred almost instantaneously.
