At Chainium we have a simple mission: to disrupt the global equity market. We stand for any business that wants to raise capital to grow. We stand for any investor who wants to buy shares in businesses they believe in. That’s why we built Chainium. To connect businesses directly to investors, using blockchain. To make buying and selling shares easy. Our platform is already available as a prototype on our website. It provides solutions to the problem of raising capital for large enterprises and smaller businesses alike. We offer business owners access to the sophisticated tools and techniques of the listed markets for a fraction of the price. For investors we provide direct access to a huge range of equity offers previously only open to institutional investors, for zero fees.
Raising capital through equity in the traditional way is a complicated and costly process. Running an IPO takes months of planning, multiple engagements with advisors, negotiations with banks and law firms to gain regulatory approval, and pitches to attract institutional investors. The process takes a minimum of twelve months, attracts hefty fees, and the end result is uncertain. Our back-to-basics approach to raising capital reduces bureaucracy, whilst our use of blockchain technology removes duplication and eliminates errors. We allow investors and businesses to exchange digital share certificates for fiat or crypto-currency in a transparent, tamper proof and immutable distributed ledger. No intermediary or other reconciliation steps are involved in transactions, cutting through hundreds of legacy systems and solutions from the old world.
Whilst some providers aim to avoid regulation, we believe it is important to offer a fully regulated platform, and therefore we are committed to working with regulators. We have already started the process of acquiring a European Banking license. Underpinning Chainium is the utility token CHX, which is used as the fuel to transact on our platform. We are holding a token sale in order to create a community of token owners and raise the necessary funds to develop the production platform in 2018. Chainium was founded by a core team who have worked together in the financial services industry for more than thirteen years.
Chainium is the platform to buy and sell shares – business owners can sell equity in their businesses to raise capital and investors can buy and sell shares from businesses. You can see our prototype on our website. Like all good ideas, at its core our platform is really simple. Chainium allows business owners to sell equity in their business in return for capital from investors. We can offer this service free of charge to both business owners and investors because we keep our processes simple and use blockchain technology.
The clever bit is that business owners choose the terms on which they sell their equity and how actively they want to engage with their investors. A small family business could use Chainium to manage a simple private sale of an equity stake in order to ensure the sale is secure, legal and transparent. Alternatively, a larger firm could use Chainium to run a public equity offering and manage regulatory compliance, reporting, KYC/AML, investor communication, shareholder voting and all the other services required to manage a large investor base. Chainium removes the expensive intermediaries layer10 and enables access to equity fundraising directly from investors.
