The Investre Network
The Investre Network is a cross-chain lending platform specializing in crypto financing, powered by blockchain. The service is similar to securities lending but in a disintermediated manner. This means there is no involvement of intermediaries or centralized agencies.
Clients of the network can transact on standardized borrowing/lending contracts in disintermediated crossing networks. It is also possible for investors to transact on non-standardised and customized contracts with preliminary matching. These contracts are facilitated by Investre, and the bilateral negotiation takes place in a secured virtual meeting room.
The platform also recognizes the security issues within the cryptocurrency industry. As a result, Investre does not keep custody of its clients’ digital assets. Its clients control their own private keys and are responsible for the safekeeping of the keys in their own wallets. This ensures that its clients have a high-level of security that has been a large concern for any intermediated crypto service.
The network aims to facilitate the completeness of the cryptocurrency market. Its cross-token clearing technology creates an infrastructure that will allow the future introduction of various cryptocurrency products. The network is set for a full-scale launch in the second quarter of 2019.
