OnPlace are set to launch their TGE (Pre-Sale) next month providing customers with an easy way to invest into a number of companies from IT-related industries using business standards and cryptocurrency expertise.

OnPlace is a team of developers looking to create a decentralized investor community for customers to join allowing for closed Over-the-counter (OCT) assets to be introduced to the market turnover and to create liquidity for them as well. OTC investments can be a complicated process in itself, nevermind knowing which industry to focus on.

OnPlace will create opportunities for investing into funds of the fastest growing tech companies around the world with low entry thresholds for the average person to access.

OnPlace is aiming to provide all the tools necessary for customers to trade assets at their own will and freedom without the unnecessary red tape that is usually accompanied by OTC investments. The transformation of shares into tokenized smart contracts will be secure and guarantee customers shareholder rights.

OnPlace has an expertise in the investment of the private IT industry.

We can say with absolute certainty that investment into private IT companies has become one of the most reliable ways to get a high return percentage on investments in a relatively short period of time. “

This team, headed by experts in the cryptocurrency domain alongside the investment industry want to provide customers with a secure and accessible service which allows them to invest into successful companies through their tokenization protocol called PATS. The company would like to focus primarily on the private IT industry which is growing and incredibly significant industry in today’s market.

The PATS Protocol

The concept of the Private Assets Tokenization System (PATS) protocol is to tokenize over-the-counter  (OTC) assets for customers to invest into. The protocol entails multiple steps firstly establishing a marketplace opportunity window (MOW), following the MOW there is a selection of projects to be tokenized based on the criteria and communal discussions of crypto-investors.

The next step is the tokenization of various projects that were eligible under the PATS protocol leading to the circulation of the established PATS tokens. Lastly the tokens are supported during their life cycle which ensures a complete decentralized control of the tokens under the control of the token holder community.

The commercial infrastructure for varying classes of assets and properties involves numerous complex components which can be time consuming and hard to navigate through. The primary challenge for the OnPlace team’s development of the protocol tokenization of investments into the shares of successful private companies was to create a universal and scalable instrument. OnPlace wants to  provide a transparent and safe solution in the OTC investment field.

The use of the PATS protocol solves the issues around the OTC investment field by securing and standardizing a channel of account management based on smart contracts. Furthermore the decentralization of audit and participants’ decision-making and through the integration of management principles directly into the asset itself will open potential access for everyday people of the world to purchase OTC assets which is often a daunting experience.

Investing in private company shares can have a minimum investment fee of up to $10,000 whereas the PATS protocol allows for a minimum of $1 allowing users much more flexibility in investing funds. The transactions fees will be considerably lower than rates that can be as high as 5% whereas OnPlace will charge rates of 0.05-0.2% saving money for customers to invest with more capitol.

Access to information is a huge issue for everyday citizens so OnPlace want to provide all the financial information possible to help customers on their path to investment. The exiting process and liquidity of an asset can prove long and troublesome which OnPlace guarantees will be easy and efficient for customers to process. These features will help relieve customers of the usually difficult experience of investing in private company shares transforming investing as we know it.
