CryptoCurrencyWire Audio Production Featuring Boustead Securities CEO Keith Moore and Upstream Co-Founder Mark Elenowitz
CryptoCurrencyWire’s latest audio production features Keith Moore, CEO of corporate finance firm Boustead Securities, and Mark Elenowitz, Co-Founder of blockchain-powered securities exchange and trading app Upstream.
To begin the interview, Elenowitz provided an introduction to Upstream and detailed some of the advantages it offers to retail traders.
“We are really excited about our relationship with Boustead,” Elenowitz stated. “Boustead has been so instrumental in small cap capital raising and capital formation that they were a perfect candidate to partner with Upstream. Upstream is the only national securities exchange in the world that is powered by the ethereum blockchain. We’re an affiliate member of the World Federation of Exchanges. There are 250 members around the world, including New York, Nasdaq, Tokyo, London and Hong Kong. We’re the smallest, but our affiliate membership enables us to adhere to the highest standards of investor disclosures and protections.”
“What’s unique about our marketplace is that we’re designed for the global audience to be able to come in and have access to issuers that trade on other primary markets around the world,” he continued. “As Americans, we take it for granted that it’s very easy to download an app and open an account. It’s very difficult for the rest of the world to place securities transactions and buy stock. We are a direct-to-consumer marketplace. Investors can connect directly to our exchange through an app with a credit card, cash, cryptocurrency or PayPal. There are no intermediaries or market makers, meaning that there is no ability to have market manipulations like layering or spoofing and, most importantly, there’s no ability to borrow or hypothecate, so there’s no ability to short sell.”
