We're building a decentralized securities platform called... Equibit


Equibit - A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Equity System


Abstract:

The registration, transfer, clearing and settlement of equities represents a significant part of economic activity currently underserved by modern technological innovation. In addition, recent events have revealed problems of transparency, inviting public criticism and scrutiny from regulatory authorities. A peer to peer platform facilitating the creation and exchange of directly registered shares represents a shift in equity markets towards more efficient, transparent operations as well as greater accessibility to the investing public and issuing companies. Blockchain technology solves the problem of transaction processing and clearing but the fungibility of their units pose a challenge in identifying the issuers and holders of specific equities. Furthermore, as the issuers are in a constant state of flux the benefits of a decentralized network are lost if a central manager is required to cancel equities from companies that no longer exist. We propose a solution to these problems using digital signatures, based on blockchain technology.


In a nutshell, what is Equibit?

Equibit Group has designed and built its own blockchain we call Equibit; a peer-to-peer network for creating and transferring equity. This allows issuers and investors anywhere to instantly transfer title to equity units called ‘equibits’ without any reliance on a transfer agent... and at practically no cost. With the use of equibits issuers can even restrict their units to prevent transfers of their equity to unauthorized parties.


What makes Equibit so great?


Equibit was created to address the inefficiencies of the current equity model and bring fairness to all involved. Here are just some of the features that makes Equibit the best solution:

  • Security: The Equibit blockchain is built on world-class security, using encryption that matches or exceeds most financial institutions. It allows for the creation of unforgeable equity units and an incorruptible chain of custody. This, in turn, is supported by the world’s largest and most powerful computer network; therefore you can be confident that your assets are secure against attackers.


  • Decentralized Settlement: Equibit is a peer-to-peer network for creating and transferring equity and debt securities. This allows issuers and investors anywhere to instantly transfer title to cryptocurrency tokens called ‘equibits’ without any reliance on a transfer agent or central depository... and at practically no cost. With the use of equibits issuers can even restrict their units to prevent transfers of their securities to unauthorized parties..


  • Investor Messaging: Our application includes a P2P communications protocol for easy and secure distribution of bid/ask orders, proxy assignments, meeting notices, MD&A’s and much more. Issuers can even privately poll their shareholders and create a vote tally that all participants can audit.


  • Earnings Distributions: Paying out dividends has never been easier. With just a few clicks, issuers can now create a Bitcoin-denominated distribution and send payments to all their shareholders of record.


  • Trading Passports: Equibit makes it easier than ever to comply with regulations over exempt distributions. Trusted actors on the network can certify the status of accredited investors and issuing companies can connect to these communities allowing the free-flow of their shares within trusted groups.


  • Market Information: Getting information about companies is easier than ever on the Equibit platform! Due to the transparent nature of blockchain technology, data on completed trades and earnings distributions is stored publicly and can be examined at any time by anyone connected to the network.


Who is the target market for Equibit?

The Equibit platform is being built to be used by investors of any caliber. From the hobby investor all the way up to the institutional investors, the experience will be the same.


Equity Market Facts






Underlying stock exchanges like the NYSE, NASDAQ, and TSX are share depositories and transfer agents. The volume of securities cleared by these intermediaries dwarfs the trading occurring on public exchanges due to the fact that most companies aren't actually listed on them.

For equity markets to work, issuers, investors and exchanges rely heavily upon these intermediaries. While transfer agents makes registration, clearing and settlement easier, it also introduces unnecessary costs and risks that Equibit eliminates.


Our Product Line

EQUIBIT SOFTWARE: At Equibit Group we’re not only changing the way capital markets work; we’re changing the way blockchain applications are built. By integrating multiple blockchains and seamlessly coordinating activities across them we're able to build applications with a robust and complete set of features required by an issuer/investor relationship.

EQUIBIT CORE: The Equibit reference standard. This application contains all the software necessary to run a full node on the Equibit Network. Equibit Core also interfaces with Bitcoin in order to complete the user experience. All functionality is delivered through a command line interface so developers can add whatever GUI they desire or integrate into their existing financial software.

EQUIBIT PORTFOLIO: For individual investors and issuers looking to participate on the Equibit platform. Our portfolio app allows you to transfer, buy, sell, authorize and cancel equibits. It also includes Bitcoin functionality allowing you to easily and seamlessly complete trades and communicate securely with other market participants.

EQUIBIT SUPERNODE: Now it's easy for enterprise and app developers to build industry-leading Bitcoin and Equibit infrastructure. With certified FIPS 140-2 security over your private keys and high speed, hardware-based encryption you can be sure your application will perform under even the heaviest loads.

We are currently working on a soft-launch of Equibit and are working with interested miners. Once the wallet is ready, and a sufficient seed of miners has been formed everything will be made public. We should be ready for soft-launch in December 2017, with hard launch following not long after.


ICO Information

The Equibit crowdsale is officially closed.

We would like to extend a sincere thank you to all participants as we now shift our focus to the next phase of development. You will be able to collect your EQB tokens once the wallet is released.

We thank everyone for their support of Equibit and look forward to this new and exciting chapter.

We are planning another opportunity to buy tokens before launch.

More info can be found at our ICO Microsite.

Decentralization aside, it could be difficult to compete with some of the well funded exchanges. Blockex and the one by Overstock.

It's definitely an uphill battle but the biggest challenge that we are facing is that we are taking on the mammoth traditional finance sector. Momentum and interest has been great though. We are fortunate to have some extremely smart individuals on our side for this one.
