LiquidShare's objective is to improve SMEs' access to capital markets by facilitating the security and transparency of post-trading operations using Blockchain technology. The company's goal is to develop and operate a post-trading infrastructure designed specifically for these companies. Eventually, the solution aims to reduce transaction costs.

 

LiquidShare uses blockchain technology that consists of a virtual register of data for shared distribution between many parties. This technology has the potential to dramatically simplify the chain of post-trade operations, guaranteeing and facilitating the consolidation of securities registers, all while enabling a higher speed of execution with real-time clearing and settlement.

 

Post-market refers to the life of securities once they have been purchased by one counterparty and sold by another, i.e. after the order has been executed. It includes compensation, clearing and settlement and registration in a securities account.
