BlockSettle was established to develop matching and settlement models focused on block-chain ledger technologies.
At our core, we offer a network of participants who are matched and settled bilaterally, in real-time, without incurring the risks associated with third-party custodianship.
Participants maintain control
over their block-chain assets.
This means that block-chain
settlement is independent
of BlockSettle and carried out directly between participants.
On-chain asset issuance. On-chain atomic swaps. Cross-chain atomic swaps. Real-time bilateral settlement. Delivery-versus-Payment at the point of execution. We are busy developing the next generation of tools and offerings on which our participants will rely.
We don’t trade as a principal,
so we always put our participants’ interests first. Our business model
is to provide for all market participants the most liquid, efficient and transparent
block-chain matching and settlement service possible.
Today most securities exist as account based entries in electronic registration systems operated by financial institutions. Only the institution who controls the electronic registration system has the capacity to influence and control the account based entries.
As a result of this framework, a common transaction, an exchange of principal two parties currently requires the involvement of financial intermediaries.
With block-chain ledger technologies, the capacity to influence and control the electronic registration system is held with the account owner, not an institution keeping records of account.
A common exchange of principal between two parties can now be done bilaterally, in real-time, without counterparty risks or intermediaries, directly between the principals to the trade.
