BlockEx, a FinTech company developing a Digital Asset Exchange Platform (DAxP) based on blockchain, has announced the appointment of Ronald Martin as Chief Operating Officer.
The BlockEx Digital Asset Exchange Platform manages the entire lifecycle of blockchain-based digital assets, including origination, issuance, exchange, settlement and redemption. The DAxP includes a digital asset creation tool, exchange, clearing, settlement, registry and brokerage software. The exchange is HFT capable with institutional connectivity via API FIX and ITCH protocols and is digital-asset-framework agnostic (Blockchain/DLT). With BlockEx, traders can trade fiat crypto pairs and other high-quality digital assets, like ICO tokens.
Martin is joining BlockEx from Bain Capital Ventures, where he was Executive in Residence with a focus in SaaS and FinTech. Prior to Bain Capital, Martin was Senior Vice President & General Manager of Altisource, where he was recruited to define and implement an aggressive strategy to build and then take to market a disruptive SaaS offering that would revolutionize the way mortgages are originated and serviced.
In addition, Martin was Management Consultant at innovative distributed database provider NuoDB, President & CEO at Trendslide, which he sold in 2013, and President & CEO at Paysafe Group, among others.
Adam Leonard, Chief Executive Officer at BlockEx, said:
I am excited to welcome Ronald Martin. His years of experience and expertise in the FinTech world will help lead the BlockEx team. Martin will add a host of value and ensure our mission: to bring the governance and legal framework of our regulated activities to the ICO market, and to provide a safe marketplace for both issuers and participants.
BlockEx is currently launching its ICO for the BlockEx ICO Market. Part of the DAxP, the ICO Market will allow users to list and participate in compliant, high-quality ICOs. BlockEx’s token, the DAXT, can be used to guarantee an allocation of tokens during ICO pre-sales hosted on the company’s platform. Participants in the ICO Market will be provided with a constant flow of highly vetted ICOs.
BlockEx is positioning itself as a bridge between the financial services industry and the new world of blockchain. This is an exciting time for the company, as it expands its team and reach, launches an ICO and ends the year with a new COO coming onboard!
BlockEx is building out product extensions to include licensable (securities, trade order, origination and deal flow) management tools as well as regulatory reporting for any asset originated on the platform.
