Noteworthy steps and Q1 2023 milestones demonstrate the accelerating adoption of security tokens and position INX as a leader in the space
During 2022, the company has taken significant actions to put in place innovative technology that allow the pioneering of a new and responsible digital economy.
INX’s main focus remains on creating a go-to holistic solution for founders and corporate partners to raise capital utilizing SEC-regulated security tokens and giving access to these investment opportunities to investors globally.
Taking advantage of the path created by the issuance of the INX Token, since the third quarter of 2022 and to date, INX has launched its capital raises via issuance of a security token and brought five (5) primary offerings to market, which are available for investment exclusively on INX.One. Following the initial offering, the digital securities of these issuers are expected to be offered to INXS customers for trading in the secondary market on the regulated INX.One platform alongside the already actively trading INX Token.
The primary offerings on INX.One now include Trucpal, a digital financial and tax software company for the logistics industry based in China; Advent Entertainment, an entertainment, gaming, and virtual reality company based in Utah, US; Treasure Experience, a virtual marine exploration and treasure hunting company based in Florida, US; and TurnCoin, a platform offering digital trading cards in talented individuals, based in Gibraltar, and the most recent addition of XManna, a metaverse and web3 technology company focused on expanding commerce and fan engagement in professional sports, advertising and gaming, based in Florida, US.
In Q1 2023, INX also announced and issued the first security token dividend distributed on blockchain to Trucpal Security Token investors. The dividend was issued more than six months ahead of the expected timeline.
The company continued to strengthen its compliance and technology framework by reaching multiple meaningful milestones in Q1 2023. The company completed its integration with the Polygon blockchain during the quarter. INX.One can now support Polygon blockchain-based tokens, alongside Ethereum and Avalanche, for secondary listing on the company’s platform.
In Q1 2023, the company also completed its AICPA SOC 2 certification of the trading system and data, a widely-recognized auditing standard for service organizations through which the security, integrity, and privacy of the company’s systems were validated.
Moreover, during the quarter, INX further expanded its money transmitter licenses and registrations, allowing the company to offer cryptocurrencies in 45 U.S. states and territories. INX.One also continues to expand its offering globally, with over 160 countries supported on INX.One.
As the market for security tokens continues to grow and rapidly expands across multiple asset classes gaining momentum among institutions, the company invests significant resources into educating investors and issuers globally to provide the required clarity on the new technology and opportunities it enables.
INX CEO Shy Datika:
"During Q1 2023, management focused on forging new and strategic global partnerships and advancing multiple initiatives to expand the company’s services, promote brand recognition and drive future revenues. We are witnessing significant transitions in the financial market, which we predicted and prepared for since INX’s establishment. The company has worked to create innovative infrastructures and solutions for the digital economy. As our actions during this latest quarter reveal, more and more businesses turn to INX for new and better alternatives. We are at an inflection point in the maturity of the digital economy and the future of assets tokenization specifically, and we expect to lead many more issuers and traders to the safe, secure, advanced ecosystem we have built."
