Horizon’s latest milestones & upcoming projects

A mid-year look at our latest milestones & what to look forward to

Upstream

Upstream is a MERJ Exchange Market, which is an affiliate of the World Federation of Exchanges. The next generation exchange and trading app for digital securities is targeting three major markets: equity crowdfunding, digital SPACs, and celebrity/athlete ventures.

  • Equity crowdfunding: Over the last few years, billions have been invested in early-stage companies, yet no real-time dedicated exchange has existed to provide exit-liquidity. Upstream will enable crowdfunded securities to trade in real-time from the user-friendly trading app.
  • Tokenized SPACs: Upstream has introduced tokenized SPACs which will give retail investors direct access to listed SPAC IPOs using crypto in the form of USDC stablecoin or USD. Upstream’s first SPAC IPOs have an anticipated size range of US$25 million to US$100 million.
  • Celebrity/athlete ventures: Upstream will support securities offerings tied to fan-driven asset classes including athletes, sports teams, celebrities, and musicians. Through Upstream’s affiliation with Horizon’s fan engagement platform Global Fan Exchange, we aim to make Upstream the go-to place for fans to invest, drive awareness, and share in the success of celebrity ventures.

Global Fan Exchange

Global Fan Exchange, the Horizon-powered fan engagement platform led by leaders in sports and entertainment, has expanded its methodology beyond athletes.

Additional milestones

In addition to Upstream and GFX, Horizon’s technology is actively powering the first fully securitized bond market in Latin America. Through a licensing agreement with Piemonte Holding, Horizon built the A-rated Brazilian financial institution a first of its kind bond issuance and secondary exchange for its private investors which is live today.

Conclusion

Horizon is working hard to build and operate next generation securities exchanges. Our goal is to unlock liquidity for traditionally illiquid assets and give everyday investors greater access to investment opportunities traditionally reserved for high-net worth individuals.
