SharesPost is building the Global Liquidity and Settlement System (GLASS), a decentralized network of crypto trading platforms, to pool liquidity and enable compliant settlement of cross-border digital securities transactions.
GLASS will be the shared compliance and settlement infrastructure of member exchanges. The network will route digital securities transactions from exchanges to licensed broker dealers in jurisdictions where their clients are resident for settlement. As a result, member exchanges can facilitate legal transactions in all jurisdictions while minimizing their compliance costs. Continue ReadingWhen a member exchange matches a buyer resident in a foreign jurisdiction in a digital securities trade, the exchange will submit the trade for settlement to GLASS. GLASS would then route the trade to the regulated entity in that jurisdiction to determine if it complies with local laws and regulations. Digital compliance certificates are generated to provide the necessary record for regulators. Less
GLASS member exchanges may opt to pool their customer orders for one or more trading pairs with other exchanges on the network. GLASS addresses counter-party risk between exchanges with the use of side channels and cross chain atomic swaps. Member exchanges benefit from shared enhanced liquidity and network effects. Continue ReadingWe expect that clients of each participating exchange will have confidence they are obtaining the best price for their purchase or sale. We aim to eliminate counterparty risk between exchanges with the use of side channel technology. The pooling of liquidity should be able to generate networks effects for GLASS members. As more exchanges join the network, we expect the liquidity on GLASS to increase and so provide the remaining exchanges with an ever more powerful incentive to join. Less
