I am proud to share that iownit is open for business!
It has been 2.5 years since we started working on iownit. Shortly after embarking on this journey we established iownit Capital and Markets, Inc. and our wholly-owned broker-dealer subsidiary IOI Capital and Markets, LLC.
I am excited to now share that IOI Capital and Markets, LLC. has become a registered broker-dealer with an Alternative Trading System (ATS) license. We are believed to be the first such broker-dealer in the U.S. to operate a blockchain-based platform for the digital issuance of private securities and secondary trading of private placement securities.

This could be done on an exchange that supports multiple asset classes and allows for a diverse set of investors to transact with each other.
