Horizon’s end-to-end blockchain technology suite

How our blockchain technology works together to usher in the future of trading

By Vanessa Malone

There is a lot of hype in the blockchain industry with companies making claims about what they ‘will’ create, or even more detrimental, making false claims about the capabilities of their existing companies. We’ve always liked the approach of coming to the market with live and proven technology solutions.

4 years in the making, we believe Horizon’s blockchain technology stack covering securities issuance through to secondary trading and settlement will usher in the next generation of trading.

Very soon the power of Horizon’s entire blockchain technology suite will be on full display with the upcoming launch of Upstream, a revolutionary stock exchange and trading app for digital securities.

Last week we discussed the power of Upstream as an Ethereum layer 2 solution. This week we want to share Horizon’s individual software solutions that seamlessly integrate to make up our blockchain trading system.

All of our solutions work on their own but together they make up a powerful trading system that will be powering Upstream. Upstream’s real-time exchange and trading app leverages Horizon’s Ethereum layer-2 blockchain technology to introduce a next generation trading experience. Investors will gain direct access to the exchange through a userfriendly trading app. They will also be able to participate using both digital currency in the form of USDC stablecoin and traditional bank and credit/debit card payments. With real-time trades and settlements, the trade and transfer of ownership will take place immediately.

We are thrilled to not only have a complete blockchain trading system but to also introduce Upstream as an innovative, live use case for the power blockchain technology can have when it comes to securities issuance and trading.
