Tokeny and Ownera Partner to Unlock Global Liquidity for Tokenized Assets

Tokeny, the Luxembourg-based tokenization platform, announces a partnership with Ownera, provider of a global inter-trading network based on the open-source FinP2P protocol, to distribute tokenized assets on the Ownera FinP2P network.

The digital securities industry is growing rapidly, but lacked a common global distribution network to connect issuers, investors, exchanges and other market participants. As a result, the rate of institutional adoption and investor access to high-quality digital assets has been limited so far.

Ownera brought the industry together to develop the open-source routing protocol FinP2P to solve this problem by orchestrating the instant exchange of digital assets held on any blockchain platform, for digital cash held on any any great book. It supports primary issuance, secondary trading, and instant DeFi-style borrowing against pledged assets. This routing network has the power to open digital distribution to private markets and unlock global liquidity in ways that no single institution or exchange can achieve.

As a market leader in tokenization solutions, TokenTechnology has enabled direct transfers and settlements of tokenized assets in a compliant, default manner. Its infrastructure uses the ERC-3643 market standard to ensure that each transfer can only be triggered between eligible investors via ONCHAINID, a digital identity system, enabling the transferability of tokenized assets. The integration of the Ownera FinP2P distribution network allows its clients to further improve the liquidity of their tokenized assets by reaching a wider investor base across the globe.

Daniel Coheur, Chief Strategy Officer of Tokeny said, “Tokenization is the first step to unlocking the full potential of assets using blockchain technology. When assets are on-chain, they can be transferred and managed by their owners, cheaply and in real time. As compliance is built into the token level, visibility and interoperability are key to maximizing asset liquidity. By integrating Ownera’s FinP2P, we enable our clients and their investors to connect to additional distribution networks and use tokenized assets for collateral.

“Institutions have faced the challenge of deploying multiple blockchain technologies if they want to access different isolated pools of assets and investors,” adds Anthony Woolley, Head of Business Development and Marketing at Ownera. “The adoption of FinP2P will result in greater liquidity and better access to capital and assets by providing regulated companies with a secure connection point to multiple digital asset networks across the globe. Any institution deploying a Tokeny solution now has the potential to access the additional distribution capabilities of the Ownera FinP2P network.
