TODAY'S PROBLEMS

1. Middlemen

1. Middlemen

Middlemen increase transaction cost and oftentimes have an informational advantage.
Buyers & sellers must trust middlemen in order to participate.

2. Centralized Ownership Lineage & Custody

2. Centralized Ownership Lineage & Custody

Custody of assets is held by 3rd parties which creates security vulnerabilities. Settlements are slow, inefficient & costly.

3. Corporate Actions

3. Corporate Actions

Principal & interest payments, dividends & other corporate actions are slow, manual, expensive processes that are prone to human error. These actions are managed by third parties, representing another layer of cost and inefficiency.

4. Illiquidity

4. Illiquidity

Non-exchange traded assets are typically illiquid (eg. real estate investments, private equity, hedge funds, bonds). Markets are not tradable 24/7 leading to inefficiency (eg. Asian markets can trade on news while US markets are closed & vice versa).

TOMORROW'S SOLUTIONS

1. Middlemen

1. Middlemen

The swapblocks protocol reduces the role of middlemen to advisory/underwriting roles and liquidity providers. Anyone can act as a market maker. Completed & existing orders in any market are viewable by buyers & sellers, removing informational asymmetry. No trusted intermediary required.

2. Centralized Ownership Lineage & Custody

2. Centralized Ownership Lineage & Custody

Participants can retain custody of their assets. Decentralized trading removes the need for brokers and central securities depositories to hold your assets. Settlement is instant and fully automated.

3. Corporate Actions

3. Corporate Actions

Stock splits, proxy voting, P&I payments & dividends can be fully or partially automated. Central securities depositories can be disintermediated.

4. Illiquidity

4. Illiquidity

Traditionally illiquid assets can be easily traded in compliance with regulatory requirements and markets become tradable 24/7.

FAQ

FAQs

Get answers to our most commonly asked questions about swapblocks.

What type of platform is swapblocks?

SWAPBlocks is a decentralized asset management and exchange platform built on a Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) blockchain.

How is swapblocks different from security token competitors?

Most of swapblocks’ competitors are DAPPs on the Ethereum network. As a full blockchain protocol, we provide SBX holders decentralized power over the network and a sound tokenomics model.
The swapblocks consortium model is also a much more efficient way to manage compliance and transaction governance compared to simple smart contract governance.
Additionally, the swapblocks protocol will incorporate native decentralized exchange (DEX) functionality. This isn’t meant to exclude other exchanges, but it will remove reliance upon them.

What types of tokens can be issued on swapblocks?

SWAPBlocks is specialized to primarily support security tokens and other asset-backed tokens. This is based on the protocol’s focus on compliance and transaction governance. Some examples include equities, bonds, derivatives, real estate, fund shares, stable coins and crypto-proxy tokens.Simple utility tokens may be better served by other platforms. Other use cases can be found in the white paper.

Can anyone operate a node?

Anyone can operate a routing node and/or seek election as a delegate.
Joining a consortium will likely require differing processes for various markets, depending on the regulatory requirements for the asset type in a given jurisdiction and the type of data required in the consortium data packet for transaction validation.
Municipal nodes are issuers of a tokenized asset on the protocol and may be a consortium member for a given market as well.

How does delegate voting work?

Holders of SBX vote for delegates they believe will benefit the network. Each SBX will allow for a specified number of votes (to be determined), which the holder can allocate to one or more candidates.
Anyone can seek election as a delegate. Delegate candidates are encouraged to publicize their platform. SWAPBlocks will strive to foster a competitive delegate environment where competition results in the most qualified delegates.
Should delegates not perform their duties appropriately or fail to deliver on their campaign promises they can be replaced via the same voting mechanism.

When will the bounty program launch?

The bounty program will launch shortly after the launch of the pre-sale. Specific dates will be announced once determined..

What are ways delegate candidates can incentivize voters?

Delegates can promise a wide range of incentives to voters, but a couple examples include 1) Reinvesting block rewards and/or transaction fees back into the network via a development fund or bounty program, and 2) Returning a percentage of block rewards to users who voted for the delegate.

Why is there no hard cap on SBX supply?

Block rewards incentivize delegates to secure the network. This is an integral part of the blockchain protocol. As such, the uncapped supply simply allows for delegates to continue receiving block rewards into the future.
After the initial distribution of coins in the genesis block, there will be no new coins minted except those released via block rewards.

Who can create applications or run businesses on swapblocks?

Anyone can create applications or establish businesses on the protocol. Some examples include trading platforms that link to the SWAP DEX, stable coin issuers, and KYC/AML/Accreditation providers that manage white listing for consortiums/municipals.

Can I operate multiple node types simultaneously?

Yes, subject to any local regulatory requirements.

Who can participate in the public sale?

Details of the public sale are still being determined. The regulatory environment around token sales is unclear. We will release more details around the public sale and investor eligibility as we move closer to launch.

Who can participate in the pre-sale?

At this time, we plan to run the pre-sale under US Reg. D rule 506(c) exemption. This exemption mandates that investors must be accredited. The initial investment vehicle will likely be a SAFT that will be exchanged for SBX after the public sale concludes.

When is the airdrop happening?

The airdrop will take place sometime after the pre-sale has concluded and the bounty program has launched, but before the public sale. Specific dates will be announced once determined.
The purpose of the airdrop is to improve network effects and reward supporters of the network.

Are SBX coins allocated to swapblocks, Inc. & management subject to a lockup period?

Yes, SBX coins allocated to swapblocks, Inc. or management will be subject to a 36 month waterfall escrow beginning at the start of the main net launch.
