Stockchain Global is proud to announce our upcoming presale. We have a concrete proposal to disintermediate the $200+ trillion global capital markets using blockchain, with a team of Harvard, Stanford, and Columbia people, and with deep experience in the industry.
 
The basics. The global capital markets – stocks, bonds, commercial paper, convertible notes, and so forth – currently have a system generally requiring 2+ business days to close a deal, and which costs trillions of dollars a year. The system has numerous intermediary industries, such as brokers, exchanges, custodians, clearing houses, escrow, and settlement companies, which have until now all been necessary for the markets to function.

The Stockchain platform is one of the first concrete proposals to use blockchain for one of its biggest potential applications: to disintermediate the global trading system for financial assets, removing the current intermediaries. There is no reason for this system to continue to proceed at the speed of snail mail in an age of email and cell phones. This platform also has a number of additional benefits, such as financing people around the world who can’t participate in the current system due to cost; creating a permanent record of transactions, management of instruments; management of shareholders; and voting. If you want to check out the details, please see our white paper at  https://stockchainglobal.com/wp-content/uploads/stockchain-global-white-paper.pdf. Fair warning: the white paper goes pretty deeply into how the capital markets work and is longer than a lot of white papers out there.

Team. Thus, our team is a mix of technical and legal/regulatory folks, with backgrounds in this industry internationally, coming from some high-quality schools and professional backgrounds. We think our team is one of the strongest to yet enter the blockchain-fintech space; look at our team at https://stockchainglobal.com/#team and see if you agree. Because of the mix of our team’s backgrounds in this industry, we understand the friction and problems in the current system and how blockchain can fix them.

Regulation. The financial markets are one of the most heavily regulated industries in the world, so the solution needs serious knowledge about tech, international law, regulation, and capital markets. Thus, our team matters a lot because any company attempting to work in the finance industry must comply with all securities law statutes and regulatory requirements, or it will be shut down by regulators. Our team is a little larger than other blockchain teams, because in addition to the tech, we have to have working groups for international law; international and national regulation; and capital markets industry focuses.

Presale. We’re just opened whitelist applications for the presale, during which we will not only be selling our token for the lowest price (in anticipation of a token offering in a couple of months) but also will be providing some special use rights for the tokens sold only in the presale. The presale is open to all approved participants (including in the US). The presale starts January 19, 2018, for approved whitelisted folks only. We have chosen a small target for the presale - only $5 million - and even before putting out public information have been receiving seven-figure offers, so if you have any interest, please apply soon.

Feel free to ask questions here or email us at (contact at stockchainglobal.com) or via our website, stockchainglobal.com.

Best,
Ben Beasley
Co-founder

Team and scope is impressive.  Very excited for this project!

What kind of value proposition does this offer?  Is it a competitor to T0?

Thanks - we are also thrilled for this project, and based on the friction in the current global marketplace we think it has very substantial upside potential. We don't really see Stockchain as a competitor to T0. Though of course I can't speak to exactly what they are thinking, they seem to be taking a top-down approach to everything, registering a United States stock market and focusing really hard on the US public equities (i.e., stock) market and associated derivatives in fiat - i.e., as far as I can tell, they are keeping the current system and just putting it on blockchain. Although that is great, and it is one application of the Stockchain platform, we are excited about the many other potential uses for Stockchain, particularly those associated with privately-traded debt and privately-owned equity, plus public debt, commercial paper, and countries/jurisdictions that don't currently have much opportunity to be involved in the capital markets due to the expense of the current system. These areas are larger than the public stock markets (hundreds of trillions USD, vs. about 70 trillion USD for publicly traded stocks) and they tend to have far fewer regulatory obstacles and securities law issues to address. Our team members have been directly involved in all of these markets, and we are initially focused on those that have the biggest need and the highest friction in the current system. We believe those are likely the best entry point.

We also think that our platform will do best with a phased rollout, both in terms of market verticals (private debt, privately-held and privately-traded equity, commercial paper, public debt/bonds, publicly traded stock, etc.) and in terms of jurisdictions, since regulatory compliance is critical for anyone in the financial space. Our initial thinking is that private debt and privately-held/traded equity are the easiest points of entry: they obtain a massive number of benefits based on blockchain tech, and some types of rollout in these spaces can easily be global in scope. For Stockchain, we want to be as big as possible, as quickly as possible, so want to go global right away. As different uses of the platform are phased in, we will continue to focus on what - in terms of which market verticals we and our partners can attack most quickly - and where - in terms of which jurisdictions we think are most ready. As you are no doubt aware, some countries are very positive toward blockchain and crypto, so those will likely be the first we will focus on for highly-regulated verticals.

As far as our value proposition, the current system has required dozens of intermediary industries that are trillion-dollar industries in their own right - the brokerage industry, custodian industry, escrow industry, investment banking industry, factoring industry, legal services industry, etc. These have historically been necessary for financial transactions to be performed, to ensure the deal works how everyone thinks it will. Stockchain disintermediates these industries, in part or whole, for all of the reasons that blockchain is exciting (permanent records, immutable information about all transactions, trustless deals, direct connection between parties), and it can happen either in fiat or crypto currencies. We think the platform needs to be flexible, because much of what this offers is a new approach to an industry that is currently functioning on a 400 year old model, but it clearly is an extremely disruptive approach. With a far less costly approach to trades, it's likely that new capital pools will be created for the billions of people worldwide who can't participate in the current system due to cost. Also, in the current system, transactions generally take multiple days to settle (i.e., when title is actually exchanged), whereas on Stockchain the settlement time will be reduced by over 99% (near instant). There are a number of other benefits as well, but I don't want to write an entire book here. Our whitepaper discusses all of these and more, with lots of examples; feel free to take a look at https://stockchainglobal.com/wp-content/uploads/stockchain-global-white-paper.pdf

We are currently accepting applications for the whitelist for the presale. The presale is planned to start in mid-January. The presale will be highly restricted in amount - our target is $5 million for the presale, covering about 15% of the total tokens (plus some bonuses) that can ever be issued. Total tokens that can ever be issued are capped at 1 billion - as per our whitepaper, the tokens are the license/gas and use right for the Stockchain platform. The presale will go until the earlier of 45 days or sold out. (Just FYI - we've already gotten offers in the seven figures, so we are encouraging anyone who might be interested to apply for the whitelist as soon as possible, before it fills up) The presale is preliminary to a token generation event to happen a couple of months after the presale concludes.

Presale whitelist applications can be submitted on our website, www.stockchainglobal.com.

Im excited to be a part of this movement. We have a great team that fills needs from a regulatory, finance, marketing, and branding perspective to lead change in financial markets. I am looking forward to creating a community of Bitcoiners to StockChainers with our upcoming ICO.

Are people seriously not looking at this? Look at the team and read the whitepaper. This is going to be huge. Buy at pre-sale instead of when ICO is here.

Just checked through the web now. Is there any good reason why some countries are left out of the white listed  country list?
Couldn't locate Nigeria.

Thanks everyone for your support! Interest in the presale, which just started, has been very high. We recommend applying for the whitelist as soon as possible to make sure you don't miss out.
