Another company offers tokenized securities

Currency.com, a Belarus-based company, announced the launch of its trading platform. The company’s trading platform allows to buy traditional assets using digital assets such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. The platform started with an offer of 150 assets, but the company plans to offer 10 thousand of tokens tracking underlying prices of assets in the future. Moreover, Ivan Gowan, who is the CEO of Currency.com, said that his company’s platform would allow users to trade without a conversion of cryptocurrencies into traditional money. Let us remind that we wrote about the company named DX Exchange earlier this week which also offers similar opportunities of trading tokenized securities for its users.

To create a new platform, Wordpress is teaming up with some giants including Google and Consensys. Newsdesk is aimed at small and medium-sized news organizations, as Wordpress reported on its blog.
