A Fully Compliant, Licensed Platform
The VALOR platform is the first global marketplace for tokenized alternative investments. It will be launched in two stages. The first stage will be implemented with the public launch of the VALOR Platform scheduled for Q4 2018, which will focus on cryptocurrencies and non-security tokens in accordance with SMART VALOR´s status as financial intermediary. In the second stage, pending regulatory approval, the VALOR platform will expand its offering to asset-backed tokens, such as equity in blockchain companies, blockchain-related infrastructure projects, real estate, crypto funds, venture capital, and private equity funds.
The SMART VALOR Platform is backed by SMART VALOR AG, a Swiss Financial Intermediary having been accepted as member of the VQF SRO, an officially recognized self-regulatory organization pursuant to the Swiss Anti-Money Laundering Act. Additionally, the Banking license has been applied for in October. This is a key competitive advantage for us, as an overwhelming number of crypto exchanges today are not licensed, putting participants at great risk.
The SMART VALOR team has an impressive track record in overcoming the toughest regulatory challenges. Our founder Olga Feldmeier was involved in a ground-breaking regulatory solution in Switzerland for the world’s largest Bitcoin custodian. We are leading the way, working closely with regulators and actively shaping the regulatory space for blockchain finance in Switzerland and Liechtenstein
