The Blockchain Securities Center of Excellence - New York

Mar 24th 2020
The Hunt & Fish Club
New York, NY

Institutional investors and blockchain will inevitably converge in the near future.  And there are no shortage of pundits speculating on what the impact of broad adaptation will look like. While pundits pontificate, actual investors are asking the real questions of “what” and when”? Amidst a backdrop of a global capital markets system that is both inefficient and ill-equipped, institutional investors are looking at digital assets for everything from global transactions to asset allocations. How will blockchain influence the existing structure of capital markets? How will large pools of institutional capital articulate positions around blockchain securities and digital assets?

Join us March 23 at the Hunt & Fish Club in New York City for the inaugural event of Institutional Investor's Blockchain Securities Center of Excellence. Along with our founding member, Prometheum, we will help investors distinguish signal from noise with a robust, multifaceted discussion around blockchain and its potential real-life use cases. With a focus on applicability, we’ll look at the actual problems the distributed ledger seeks to solve and what a successful large scale implementation might look like.

Founding Sponsor

Prometheum is the first compliant, full-service 24-hour blockchain securities ecosystem. Prometheum is the SEC and FINRA regulated market infrastructure that leverages the blockchain for issuance, trading, clearing, settlement and custody. Blockchain securities are born on our network when a company raises capital on Prometheum’s issuance platform by offering their own Smart Security Tokens (SST). Those SSTs can then be freely traded on our system, where the Prometheum Blockchain tracks transactions for secure clearing and settlement within 24 hours.

At the most basic level the difference is the difference between a currency and a security. A currency is actual money, it has intrinsic value and can be used as a direct means of payment for many different things. Securities are notes or contracts that represent some sort of promise to an investor, whether it be a part of a company (equity) or the promise of future payments, or a token that represents value that has the possibility of growth as it relates to the utility of that token on a blockchain supported network. Both cryptocurrency and cryptosecurities use a blockchain to keep a record of transactions, also known as a distributed ledger.

The Prometheum Network is transforming the financial industry with blockchain-powered tools for offering, distribution, trading, clearing, settlement and custody of digital assets. The Prometheum Network brings investors, traders, issuers, broker-dealers, validators, DApp developers and partners together.

The Prometheum ecosystem is a term we use to describe the digital world that is created by connecting the issuance platform, the ATS, the online broker and our clearing firm, and using the blockchain and smart contracts as the technology that connects, secures, records, and powers it all. The participants of this world are the online network of people interconnected by technology.
