Currency.com, a blockchain technology company and an affiliated company of Capital.com, announced this Tuesday that it has launched a trading platform for tokenized securities, claiming to be the first company to do so in the world.
The new platform will allow traders to invest in and trade real-world financial instruments directly with cryptocurrencies. Currency.com is available for both retail and professional investors and plans to issue more than 10,000 tokenized securities, starting off with an offering of more than 150.
According to the statement, the tokenized securities will track the underlying market price of financial instruments such as global equities, indices, and commodities. The company is able to offer this service by leveraging the technology of its sister platform, Capital.com, which is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission.
Commenting on the launch, Ivan Gowan, the CEO of Currency.com and Capital.com, said: “We are excited to be launching this revolutionary blockchain venture and providing crypto investors with a concrete option to diversify their portfolio by investing in traditional asset classes, without the pressure of exchanging cryptocurrencies into fiat money to do so.

Currency.com receives financial backing
The platform was launched following investment from Larnable Ventures and VP Capital. Furthermore, the trading platform will be supplemented with another free platform for trading and exchanging cryptocurrencies using fiat money.
“Currency.com will disrupt and revolutionize financial technology on a large scale. Access to global financial markets has historically been available through one primary medium – the stock exchange – but Currency.com leverages groundbreaking cryptocurrency technology to create opportunity for investors who might not have access to traditional stock markets otherwise,” added said Viktor Prokopenya, Founder and CEO of VP Capital.”
Users wanting to use Currency.com’s new trading platform can apply to be put on the waiting list on the company’s website.
