Your Money Are Digital, Your Securities Deserve It Too

HighCastle

Overview

HighCastle is the UK blockchain-based share registrar and investment marketplace, which provides the end-to-end technological infrastructure and legal framework for compliant offering, issuance, distribution, management, transfers and trading of private securities.

HighCastle provides a full technological infrastructure and legal framework to offer securities and subscribe investors, issue, distribute and manage private securities in a digital form on the secure distributed ledger and hold blockchain-based share registry instead of current spreadsheets. Issuance of securities in a digital form allows private companies to leverage the benefits of public capital markets with even greater efficiency: liquidity premium, 24/7 trading, embedded compliance, easy follow-on rounds, automated dividend payment and many others. 

The HighCastle opens up the markets to those smaller companies that previously saw the cost of execution as a limiting factor. Though issuance of digital securities utilising HighCastle platform, private companies can raise funds and issue securities 60% faster and at least 50% cheaper. This opens an enormous opportunity for the growth of private businesses. 

The HighCastle platform provides four layers of services: 

1. Offering & Subscription:

- Private launch: a private offering of securities and subscription of investors managed through a personal corporate account at HighCastle.

- Public launch: listing and offering of digital securities at the HighCastle’s Prime Market (upon reaching at least 20% investment target) 

2. Issuance:

- Issuance of securities on the HighCastle’s Prime Issuance, Registry and Settlement Blockchain Network (PrimeNet), a secure permissioned blockchain build in accordance with the capital market industry standards.

- Allotment and distribution of digital securities to existing shareholders/creditors and new investors. 

3. Registry: 

- Blockchain-based HighCastle Registrar service and legal framework for issuance of securities in a digitally wrapped form: legal agreements package, maintenance of share registry (securities ownership record), distribution and transfers of securities and shareholders management.

4. Trading: 

- Secondary trading of digital securities through the HighCastle MultiTrade (currently in partnership with regulated MTFs and from Q4 2020 also at HighCastle Growth Market).

- Publishing of digital assets’ profiles on HighCastle Market Data, where historical market data, statistics and quotes are available for investors and traders.
