Securitize Algorand Partnership

Issuers will now be able to issue Securitize powered digital securities on the Algorand Blockchain.

Securitize, a platform delivering trusted global solutions for compliant digital securities, has partnered with Algorand to support Securitize’s DS Protocol on the recently launched Algorand blockchain. Securitize’s platform-agnostic DS Protocol will now support Algorand, giving issuers using Securitize an additional high-performance platform option for issuing, trading, and performing corporate actions using digital securities.

Algorand utilizes a pure proof-of-stake protocol delivering decentralization, scalability, and security, making it ideally suited for issuing and managing digital securities. Both Algorand and Securitize believe all paper securities will be converted to digital securities running on blockchain technology in the near future. Both organizations will be collaborating to advance existing tools and services for the digital securities industry.

In an announcement earlier this month, Securitize was also named as one of the initial portfolio of category-leading businesses that will receive funding from the recently closed $200million USD VC fund of Algo Capital, the financial institution focused on accelerating access, adoption, and liquidity of the Algo.
