As digital assets slowly return to their early-year boom, IX Swap is a project that has focused on an underserved part of the market. Security token offerings (STOs) and tokenized security offerings (TSOs) have been hindered by a lack of liquidity, yet they have the potential to unlock $7.5 trillion dollars in value.
IX Swap has built a decentralized exchange for security tokens and tokenized securities that solves this issue by relying on the latest advances in blockchain technology. Its DeFi solution is able to provide liquidity for these markets with the implementation of liquidity pools and automated market maker (AMM) algorithms that will support their growth in an efficient and legally compliant manner.
Having this specialized infrastructure will ultimately bridge the gap between CeFi and Defi. It will allow institutions to hold these assets and use them for trading, staking, liquidity mining, or borrowing and lending. More so, STOs can now become “a new way to IPO.” These features have been practically inaccessible to them under the current paradigm dominated by their unregulated counterparts.
On September 8th, IX Swap will launch its initial decentralized exchange offering (IDO) on multiple platforms. More information is yet to be shared on a large token sale supported by the likes of ETHPad, Occam, Poolz, and an undisclosed Tier 1 IEO platform. Likewise, important figures in blockchain investment such as SMO Capital, Token Bay Capital, Baksh Capital, JST Capital, Faculty Capital, COSIMO Ventures, Tokenomik Inc, Soul Capital, and N2H4 Capital have already allocated over 1.75 million into IX Swap prior to the launch.
The expectations around these solutions have led IX Swap Co-founder Julian Kwan to note:
“There’s growing interest among institutional investors for DeFi solutions that are accessible to them by virtue of being compliant with regulatory requirements and speaking the same language as traditional finance. Security tokens and tokenized securities are the bridge between these two worlds. We’re frankly surprised that the opportunity to provide liquidity for these markets has been overlooked by the industry.”
