Financial markets are in the midst of a revolution, with the traditional trust mechanisms built around centralized third parties being replaced by distributed ledger protocols. Entire financial ecosystems are emerging on distributed ledgers and the technologies built around them.
Cryptocurrency and the token market are rapidly growing, with a market capitalization now over $160 billion. Factury Inc. introduces a blockchain-based fixed income securities model that reduces costs, operational friction, and risks while improving auditability and transparency for the industry.
With the introduction of the instant settlement, investors will be able to allocate their capital more efficiently and with higher velocity.
The network will cover every financial instrument in the fixed income space, starting with consumer and business loans, followed by bonds, structured products, and other financial instruments. FIC Network will accommodate any type of currency, including cryptocurrencies, and financial instrument. The FIC Network token is a utility token to be used as a service fee, but also prevents network spam and denial of service attacks.
An initial draft of the concept for a blockchain-based secondary loan market was conceived in February 2016 and Factury Inc., the company behind FIC Network, was incorporated in April 2016. Factury was selected by Startupbootcamp to join their New York-based accelerator in March 2016. Factury was also selected by to Boost VC to join their accelerator in Silicon Valley.
