[PRESS RELEASE – Singapore, Singapore, 12th September 2022]
In an industry first, Diners Club’s corporate note was tokenized and issued with an Automatic Market Maker liquidity pool on DigiFT Security Token DEX.
DigiFT will mint 100 NFTs to commemorate its inaugural security token listing.
DigiFT, which aims to provide regulated decentralized finance solutions on the Ethereum public blockchain, has successfully completed the issuance, secondary trading, and redemption of a corporate note security token on its decentralized exchange (‘”DEX”). To commemorate the completion of DigiFT’s inaugural listing, 100 NFTs will be minted and air-dropped to partners and various stakeholders.
The one-month note issued by Diners Club (Singapore) Private Limited (“DCS”) was fully subscribed at its initial offering on August 1st, 2022. Investors were able to trade the security token on DigiFT Security Token DEX efficiently with 80% of the transactions completed through the Automatic Market Maker (“AMM”) mechanism. Unlike a traditional exchange that relies on active market markers to complete a buy or sell order, AMM facilitates secondary market trading via smart contract liquidity pools.
Henry Zhang, CEO of DigiFT, shared, “Our token investors are the first in the world to trade real-world regulated financial assets on a public blockchain DEX. We will continue to innovate and offer more investment products for digital users in a regulatory-compliant manner.” Mr. Philip Koh of DCS shared, “The token is a significant breakthrough that leverages the benefits of blockchain to develop an alternate source of funding.”
DigiFT, founded in 2020 by Wanli Li and Henry Zhang, is striving to be the first regulated decentralized security trading exchange and is currently operating in the Monetary Authority of Singapore’s FinTech Regulatory Sandbox (“Sandbox”) as an exempt Recognised Market Operator with a Capital Markets Services license. The blockchain-based exchange is the first decentralized finance trading platform admitted into the Sandbox. It facilitates the primary offering and secondary trading of security tokens backed by financial assets. As a result, investors can trade directly from their digital wallets after completing a know-your-client onboarding process.
DCS is a franchisee of Diners Club International Ltd., a direct banking and payment services company. The company has a large cardmember base in Singapore.
