About WePower

WePower enables renewable energy producers to raise capital by issuing their own energy tokens. These tokens represent energy they commit to produce and deliver. Energy tokenization standardizes simplifies and opens globally currently existing energy investment ecosystem. As a result energy producers can trade directly with the green energy buyers (consumers and investors) and raise capital by selling energy upfront, at below market rates. Energy tokenization ensures liquidity and extends access to capital.

Gemini Wants to Trade Crypto Securities

The broker-dealer license appeal will be sent to Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, but experts believe the plans implementation can take some time
03 July 2019   928

Gemini Bitcoin Exchange will apply for a broker-dealer license, which will allow it to operate as an alternative trading system and offer clients securities on the blockchain. It is reported by CoinDesk.

The appeal will be sent to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).

Gemini has previously entered into a partnership with Harbor, a startup specializing in real-world assets tokenization, which gives institutional investors the opportunity to purchase securities using Gemini Dollar (GUSD).

However, now, as source familiar with the operating activities of Gemini said, the exchange plans to launch trading in similar instruments on its own platform. It is assumed that this will be securities from Harbor, as well as from other projects.

Implementation of these plans, however, may take quite a long time, so FINRA is in no hurry to approve applications for obtaining a broker-dealer license from cryptocurrency companies. Currently, the organization is considering about 40 such applications, while some companies have been waiting for 14 months to complete.

In April, Harbor raised $ 28 million in funding from a number of venture capital investors, including Andreessen Horowitz and Pantera Capital. In November of the same year, the company launched a platform for distributing security tokens, starting with the sale of shares in The Hub residential complex in South Carolina.
