Upvest makes asset tokenization frictionless. Release your project with one provider, instead of handling multiple agencies and partners.
Similar to traditional securities, security tokens need to be approved by the regulator. Our partnering law firm Lindenpartners is a specialist in this field and will help you get started.
Since security tokens are a legally recognized financial instrument, it must be ensured that the participating investors are qualified for the investments. In addition, anti-money laundering measures must be put into place.
The step of actually tokenizing is centered all around the smart contract definition, deployment, and minting of the token. It is crucial that the token setup reflects the characteristics of the prospectus.
The token distribution is done manually oftentimes, which makes this process error-prone and resource-intensive. Upvest allows for automated distribution to previously whitelisted (eligible) investors.
At Upvest, investment platforms can choose between two options for storage. Our non-custodial option, which gives sole access to the investors, and the custody option, which is developed working closely with the requirements of the German regulator.
