DSDC and INX Join Forces to Pave the Way for Regulated Digital Depositary Receipts
Regulated Digital ADRs and Other Tokenized Assets Enable Greater Financial Inclusion and a Borderless Economy
The INX Digital Company, Inc. (Cboe Canada: INXD, INXATS: INX, OTCQB: INXDF) ("INX"), a broker-dealer and inter-dealer broker, announced today a strategic partnership with The Digital Securities Depositary Corporation (DSDC), a leader in financial infrastructure for the compliant issuance and servicing of tokenized financial assets, that will revolutionize the issuance of fully regulated digital American depositary receipts (ADRs). The collaboration marks an important milestone in the next chapter of tokenized financial assets, opening up new avenues for traditional asset investment and wealth creation in a Web3 era.
“Partnering with DSDC represents a significant step forward in INX’s continued mission to transform traditional assets using the power Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) in a fully regulated way. Tokenization is already redefining traditional asset functionality and accessibility. It’s not just a trend; it’s a fundamental shift in how we interact with financial instruments,” said Shy Datika, INX’s CEO. “Regulated digital ADRs, along with other tokenized assets will unlock new investment opportunities, democratizing access to previously restricted markets, and paving the way for a more inclusive and borderless financial system.”
By combining DSDC’s future institutional-grade market infrastructure, provided by KALYP Technologies, with INX’s deep experience in the regulated issuance and trading of a variety of digital assets, the two organizations aim to modernize and digitize legacy securities like ADRs - offering investors enhanced opportunities for access and liquidity while ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements.
Specifically, the INX.One platform for digital asset issuance, trading and capital raises will soon give investors access to Digital ADRs, along with additional digital assets like tokenized shares, security tokens, digital bonds and more. Additionally, DSDC and the digital ADR will create a new opportunity for international companies, including the UK and those in the EU to register and list under US regulation.
“We are delighted to collaborate with INX to introduce fully regulated digital ADRs. This partnership underscores our commitment to revolutionizing the world of traditional assets by harnessing the power of tokenization,” said Alistair Jones, CEO of the DSDC. “By expanding the options for investors, we aim to unlock new possibilities and create a more inclusive and efficient investment ecosystem."
