Why a blockchain for security tokens?

Polymesh’s specificity gives the chain (and the applications built on top) an advantage over general-purpose blockchains.

Governance

Contentious forks in the chain present significant legal and tax challenges for tokens that are backed by real assets. Polymesh uses an industry-led governance model to prevent hard forks and guide the evolution of the chain

Identity

Securities issuance and transfer requires a known identity, but most chains are built for pseudonymity. Polymesh uses a customer due diligence process to ensure all actors on the chain are verified and all transactions are authored by permissioned entities.

Compliance

Solutions built on top of general purpose blockchains struggle with processing the complex logic needed to comply with regulations.

Confidentiality

Most market participants need their position and trades to remain confidential, but anyone can see holdings on general-purpose blockchains. Polymesh has engineered a secure asset management protocol that enables confidential asset issuance and transfers.

Settlement

Settlement challenges prevent the blockchain from serving as a golden record for asset ownership. By creating assets at the protocol layer, Polymesh is able to provide a simplified approach to transfers that provides instant settlement without prefunding, prevents unwanted airdrops through trade affirmation, and can offer deterministic finality.
