DSTOQ: A Decentralised Stock Exchange Built on Stellar

Introducing DSTOQ, a Decentralised Stock Exchange

Today, we’re very pleased to introduce DSTOQ to the cryptocurrency community.

DSTOQ is the first fully licensed stock exchange that allows users to invest in real-world assets such as stocks, bonds, ETFs and gold using cryptocurrency.

The first fully licensed exchange for tokenized trading

Over the past year, many companies have claimed to be launching platforms for security token trading. However, to our knowledge, no other companies have obtained the appropriate licenses and most claim to be “in the process” of obtaining one.

In January 2018, DSTOQ was granted a Stock Exchange License from Vanuatu, allowing us to trade cryptocurrency for tokenized securities.

On the DSTOQ platform, investors will be able to use cryptocurrency to invest in assets including equity, bonds and gold.

How the DSTOQ exchange works

The MVP presented does not represent the final design of the platform. No real-world trades can be made with the MVP.
