April 23, 2020 Securitize launches instant access service for security tokens.

Securitize, the security token trading platform, has launched a new blockchain-based service called “Instant Access” that allows users to buy and sell security tokens with one click. The service operates on Ethereum and is the result of a collaboration between Securitize and AirSwap, the peer-to-peer trading platform with the intention of offering a fast and convenient method for retail customers to trade such tokens. Meanwhile, Openfinance, another security token trading platform has stated that it will delist all of its current tokens and suspend trading by May 21 if its current token issuers do not provide the platform with additional funding. The announcement is apparently due to insufficient growth in trading activity relative to the company’s operational costs.
