Toronto-based software company Polymath built the Polymesh blockchain after recognizing five major barriers preventing blockchain’s full entry into the regulated financial industry: governance, identity, confidentiality, compliance, and transaction finality. Polymesh overcomes these barriers to meet the needs of regulated capital markets through key design principles built into the chain at protocol layer. Polymesh is a permissioned blockchain that requires node operators to be known, verified, and trusted capital markets participants like Oasis.
“Security tokens have immense potential to transform capital markets. Polymath stands at the forefront of influential security token technology by building blockchain infrastructure that captures the transformative power of the chain, while meeting capital markets requirements not traditionally met on public blockchains,” said Pat LaVecchia, CEO of Oasis. “As a permissioned blockchain specifically for securities, Polymesh is an attractive alternative that brings the benefits of blockchain, transparency and efficiency, while overcoming problems of compliance and confidentiality seen on public chains.”

Oasis Pro Markets is the first US-regulated ATS for raising capital via digital securities with a secondary trading platform authorized to allow users to trade digital securities and make payment in digital cash (i.e. stable coins or central bank digital currencies) in addition to fiat. The company’s mission is to bridge the world of traditional finance and decentralized finance and lead in digital securities innovation by leveraging blockchain and smart contract technology to expedite the transfer and settlement of assets.
“We’ve been working alongside Oasis to standardize and streamline digital transfer services and are excited to collaborate further on Polymesh to foster institutional adoption of security tokens,” said Chris Housser, Interim CEO of Polymath. “Polymesh has been carefully designed to handle regulated assets efficiently while ensuring compliance and reputable node operators like Oasis are an important part of the picture”.
