Seems like the market for tokenized securities is warming up. After the DE.Exchange launch another Belarus-based startup Currency.com has launched a full functional tokenzied securities platform as reported by PR Newswire. Currency.com is accessible to all types of investors and will issue over 10,000 tokenised securities (starting with 150+), which will track the underlying market price of common financial instruments, such as global equities, indices and commodities. For instance, users will be able to buy a token that mirrors the performance of an Apple share on the Nasdaq — APPLE.CX — at the same economic costs and benefits of an Apple share. Users will be able to buy these tokens on Currency.com directly using Bitcoin (BTC) or Ethereum (ETH), and will have the ability to trade them on margin.

To offer these capabilities, Currency.com leverages the technology of Capital.com, its sister platform regulated by the FCA and CySEC, to offer users access to a tokenised version of a contract for exchange of a specific equity, commodity or index.
