Overstock.com's tZERO unveils security token trading software
tZERO, the blockchain-meets-Wall-Street subsidiary of Overstock.com, announces the prototype of its planned security token trading software. The demo link displays a video demonstrating how security tokens may be traded on this platform. Overstock.com and tZERO CEO Patrick Byrne said, "In August 2015, Overstock used tZERO's blockchain technology to issue what we believe was the world's first private blockchain security, a $5 million bond to First New York Securities. In December 2015, Overstock filed with the SEC an S-3 registration statement to register a preferred stock digital security utilizing tZERO's blockchain technology, which was subsequently declared effective in December 2016. Overstock used that S-3 to issue what we believe was the world's first public blockchain security, OSTKP, utilizing tZERO technology once again. Now we are unveiling tZERO's security token trading software: the astute viewer of our progress can look at this, and the collection of strategic assets we have assembled, and get an idea of the breadth of what we intend."
