Swarm makes trading security tokens easy — with Market Access Protocol (MAP)

Welcome to your Swarm Newsletter for September 10th, 2018.

To trade security tokens compliantly, parties must confirm the credentials for each participant and adhere to token requirements and restrictions. Swarm has developed a solution to reduce the hassle. It is called Market Access Protocol (MAP). Participants ranging from exchanges, investors, and service providers can use MAP to interact more efficiently, knowing their privacy is protected and transactions are regulatory compliant. MAP is designed for the entire industry and will be a catalyst for the next wave of growth in crypto investing.

Swarm brings liquidity to SRC20 security tokens by partnering with OpenFinance

Swarm entered into an agreement with the OpenFinance Network (OFN) to list all SRC20 security tokens on their platform. This partnership creates liquid secondary markets for investors in all of the investments tokenized on Swarm’s security token blockchain, allowing token holders to trade in and out of any investments at will. This agreement also means OFN will be the very first trading platform to integrate with Swarm’s revolutionary Market Access Protocol (MAP), a unified architecture that greatly simplifies the process of regulatory compliance, thus increasing the overall efficiency of the market.

Robinhood Equity Token lets you obtain a stake in fractional shares of private tech companies

Swarm investors have yet another investment opportunity to benefit from: the Robinhood Equity Token (RHET). It is a security token that derives its value from secondary acquisition of equity in Robinhood, Inc. As the first security token of its kind, RHET gains value from the price appreciation of shares in Robinhood, Inc. Secondary equities transactions and refinancing of legal entities which hold private company equity are not new in the United States. What’s new here is the tokenization of these assets, and the doors opened by this innovation. Token owners can now participate in the value creation of the very network they are part of. Read the full press release, and check out the investment opportunity on our platform.

Cast your vote on quorum and voting majority requirements for the Swarm democracy before September 16, 2018

At the outset, the Swarm Fund Organization was using a majority vote democracy for decisions regarded as central to the organization. This meant that more than 50% of the tokens in circulation were required for a vote option to become valid. With the increased utility of Swarm, leading to a more diverse SWM owner community, a vote has been called regarding a reduced quorum requirement for votes on Swarm.

If you hold SWM tokens in an ERC20 wallet, we invite you to cast your vote on the proposed new voting requirements. Take time to review the proposalsand follow the discussions, before participating in this groundbreaking decision. When you’re ready to vote, go to voting.swarm.fund and follow the instructions. The voting closes at 11:59pm Sep 16 2018.
