Templum will operate at the intersection of blockchain and digital assets in a regulated manner that facilitates transparent access to capital with a prioritization on investor protection. Our principals have many years of experience within the blockchain space, helping shape the innovative technology into a viable, scalable industry. They have leveraged this background to bring new mechanics to shape ICO’s as securities. These new mechanics can facilitate greater access to capital for innovative, growth companies while balancing investor protection, enabling job creation and adding to our general economic growth.
Templum entered into a strategic partnership and license agreement with Liquid M Capital that will position Templum to be a leading fully regulatory compliant platform for the primary issuance of ICO's as securities and their secondary trading resulting in the creation of a new market infrastructure for digital assets.
Liquid M Capital, LLC, is a financial technology company and broker dealer registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”). Liquid M Capital is the operators of an alternative trading system (“ATS”) that plans to use Blockchain Technology as part of the operation of the ATS. Liquid M Capital is able to facilitate the primary issuance of ICO's as a securities. The approval was a result of Liquid Markets Group’s (the parent of Liquid M Capital) advocacy and petition for rule change to the SEC in late 2015 to amend regulation ATS for unregistered securities. Liquid M Capital has achieved an approval set for a robust alternative trading system, which permits Templum via its license to transact unregistered and private securities specifically ICO’s issued as securities. Alongside their ATS approval, Liquid M Capital was granted a Quotation Bureau which permits the publishing of real-time mark-to-market quotations of private unregistered securities. In addition, the Quotation Bureau has the ability to take indications of interest for securities purchase and sale on a 24/7 basis. Templum’s license agreement enables them to leverage these regulatory approvals and operate its Templum platform.
"Templum has entered the ICO market at the ideal time when compliance and investor protection are top of mind for industry participants."
