What is BlockState

Our technology enables access.

  • Asset tokenization allows issuers to target both retail and institutional investors faster and more (cost-) efficiently.
  • Fractional ownership and transferability of assets and a streamlined investor UX allow issuers to address a much broader market.

Tokenization is ideal to connect issuers with investors

Tokenization bears several characteristics that fundamentally improve access between issuers and investors compared to traditional market infrastructure. Besides reducing the general costs associated with traditional issuance methods, tokenization structurally improves both the access and attractiveness of assets.

  • Low-cost issuance

Tokenization disintermediates the issuance process, saving valuable time and resources to make assets bankable.

  • Liquidity premium

Issuers benefit from secondary market liquidity as investors often pay premiums of up to 20% on liquid assets

  • Fractional ownership

Assets with previously high minimum ticket sizes can be fractionalized without any extra cost.

  • Digital management

Smart contracts enable fully digitized shareholder registry and automated corporate actions and reporting.

  • Transferability

Replacing a paper-based system with a fully digital system enables the instantaneous and global transfer of asset ownership.

  • Fast time-to-market

By standardizing and automating a large part of the issuance and management process, we minimize the time to market.

Our intuitive interfaces streamline lifecycle management

In addition to advisory on the issuance process and preferential access to our partner network, we provide full lifecycle management solutions. From legally binding structuring and issuance of assets via smart-contracts across investor management to automated reporting – our intuitive interfaces vastly simplify asset management.

  • Issuance dashboard

We guide our clients through the definition of their STO, step by step.

We generate a legally binding smart contract to tokenize our clients’ assets.

  • Management dashboard

Issuers can manage their investors directly via their corporate actions dashboard.

  • Reporting dashboard

Compliant reporting and analytics are provided through automated processes.

Generate and disseminate full financial reports automatically to shareholders and regulators.
