CEO of First-to-Market Alternative Trading System is Set to Speak at Security Token Summit
Polymath, serial entrepreneur, and CEO of Open Finance Network (OFN), Juan M. Hernandez, will be speaking at the Security Token Summit on April 8 in Los Angeles. He will be a part of the panel “Security Token Issuance Platforms & the Promise of Liquidity,” and he’ll be joined by representatives from Security Token Academy, Republic, tZero, and Rivver.
In November 2018, OFN had successfully created the first live, regulated security token trading platform. The platform was created to enhance liquidity for security tokens and make them more accessible to everyone.
Following years of experience working in financial technology, Hernandez’s team came together in the aftermath of the JOBS Act to create an ecosystem that eliminates counterparty risk. In an interview with Crypto Disrupted, Hernandez spoke about the platform he and his team have been building.
“We provide an ecosystem where participants don’t have to necessarily worry about counterparty risk and trust factor. It makes for a much more efficient and smoother market,” Hernandez said.
Building a Community Within the Security Token Industry
OpenFinance’s strategy is to work with everyone that works with issuers and to help bring those companies on-chain. OFN’s partner network is one of the most extensive in the industry.
“Working with everyone that works with issuers to help everyone to tokenize their assets and bringing them on-chain. Partnering with these participants allows us to create an onboarding mechanism that allows their tokens to easily be traded on the platform. We bring in a uniform standard where all of these tokens can be fungible with one another.”
We are so excited to have Juan as well as the other speakers at the Security Token Summit! He will be joined by Adam Chapnick of Security Token Academy, Joe Law of tZero, Nisa Amoils of Republic, and David Benizri of Rivver.
