Lition, the only scalable public-private blockchain with deletable data features made for commercial products and Tokeny, the compliant tokenization platform delivering institutional grade solutions in the issuance, lifecycle management and secondary trading of digital securities, today announced a cooperation. Both parties will work together to tokenize securities in a fully legally compliant way, including the ability to protect and delete private data, while preserving typical features of a blockchain like immutability and security.
The announcement marks a big step forward in the industry as potentially the latest innovation in online business banking, as institutional involvement across blockchain begins to ramp up and significant players enter the market. The traditional way of issuing securities is time-consuming, multi-tiered and involves many middlemen using local and cumbersome systems. Through blockchain technology, parties can benefit from using one single and global infrastructure that improves transaction speeds, utilizes automation and is accessible 24/7/365 days a year.
Lition has previously signed an agreement with a real estate development company and two branches of the VR Bank, a leading banking conglomerate in Germany with assets over $1 trillion to develop a solution to process syndicated loans on Lition‘s proprietary blockchain infrastructure. The loan volume for a housing complex in Germany has a volume of approx. €20 million, which will now be the basis to issue security tokens created using Tokeny‘s T-REX (Token for Regulated EXchanges) standard.
CEO of Tokeny, Luc Falempin commented, “The advantages of using blockchain technology in the issuance of securities are overwhelming. Those benefits are starting to be recognised by regulated institutions and this initiative is proof of that recognition. What has held this technology back from institutional adoption is the lack of compliance and regulation. “
He continued, “This is the exactly why we developed the T-REX. This standard allows for the compliant trading of digital securities by enabling issuers to control transfers and ensures investors meet the obligations in each jurisdiction the assets are distributed in. We are incredibly excited to be utilising the T-REX and working with Lition and VR Bank in this genuinely first-of-a-kind technical demonstration of an offering.“
Lition CEO, Richard Lohwasser mentioned, “We‘re tremendously pleased to announce this initiative with Tokeny after having already announced our partnership with the VR Bank earlier this week. The benefits of tokenizing securities are very strong. So far high legal hurdles have hindered large scale adoption, but by ensuring data privacy and deletion with our unique technological solution, we‘re finally one step closer to legal security token offerings. It opens up the door for many others to follow suit“
