STOKR, the European marketplace for issuing tokenised digital shares, has announced that they will support Blockstream’s Liquid Securities platform. This will enable companies to issue shares on the Liquid Network, a Bitcoin sidechain, under the legal certainty of the EU capital market laws.

STOKR is a one-stop-shop for companies to issue security tokens which enables access to exciting investment opportunities both for retail and professional investors. They allow companies to issue shares on the Liquid Network and support them to comply with regulatory requirements.

Built on the battle-tested Bitcoin codebase, Liquid supports much-needed privacy for users through its Confidential Transaction technology. Liquid has been created by one of the most accomplished teams in the Bitcoin industry, and we are proud to support the Liquid Securities platform for a streamlined securities issuance,” said Arnab Naskar, Co-Founder, Business Lead of STOKR

The Liquid Securities platform is a user-friendly solution for businesses issuing security tokens on the Liquid Network, a federated Bitcoin sidechain. The Liquid Securities platform is the first Liquid-based product launched by Blockstream.

“Other securities platforms force issuers to bake compliance in at smart contract level, but Liquid Securities moves that all off-chain with multisig and the Liquid Authorizer,” said Samson Mow, Chief Strategy Officer of Blockstream. “This allows issuers to stay flexible in the face of shifting global regulations. Now with STOKR’s platform supporting Liquid Securities, issuing compliant security tokens on Liquid is easier than ever.”

Liquid-based token issuance is available from today at STOKR, and businesses interested in launching a security token on Liquid should contact the STOKR team on hello@stokr.io.
