Prometheum’s Subsidiary, “PEATS”, Receives FINRA Approval as a Member to Operate an Alternative Trading System (“ATS”) for Digital Asset Securities

PEATS ATS will focus on ensuring customer protection, issuer accountability and market integrity for all investor types

NEW YORK, Aug. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Prometheum‘s broker-dealer subsidiary, Prometheum Ember ATS Inc. ("PEATS"), CRD # 311636, received FINRA approval to become a member of FINRA and to operate its ATS under a "three step" process per SEC guidance, and which will allow accredited and non-accredited investors to trade digital asset securities. The ability of PEATS to launch its ATS is subject to further approval by the SEC.

PEATS will integrate both traditional and blockchain technology for the trading of digital asset securities with on-chain custody and settlement provided by Anchorage Digital Bank, the first federally chartered digital bank.

PEATS offers a streamlined onboarding process by automating Know-Your-Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML). Combined with a user-friendly interface, customizable charts, historical and Level 2 (depth of the book) data, PEATS will provide a complete trading experience for both retail investors and financial professionals. Importantly, PEATS seeks to ensure a fair and orderly market focusing on customer protection with advanced market surveillance and risk management systems. 

"Receiving FINRA approval for PEATS to be a member of FINRA to operate an ATS is a major milestone for Prometheum, and supports our belief that the US Federal Securities Laws and FINRA requirements provide the best framework to regulate the trading of digital asset securities," said Aaron Kaplan, Founder and Co-CEO of Prometheum. "We are excited to help further our industry’s evolution."

In addition, Prometheum recently hired Rosemarie Fanelli as Chief Regulatory Officer, a FINRA and NYSE regulatory veteran with over 33 years of experience, and who, immediately prior to joining Prometheum, served as Senior Advisor to FINRA’s department of Member Supervision. Rose was also a member of its Digital Policy Group whose primary purpose is to address policy issues concerning digital assets.
