Then, the client asked us to gather a small team of IT specialists who would work in close cooperation with their on-site team. Within several months, N-iX team rapidly grew from 3 to 10 professionals, including front-end developers, back-end developers, and QA testers.

N-iX software developers have enhanced the client’s development capabilities and contributed to the successful delivery of Globacap platform. Thanks to the team’s wide experience in fintech development, we were able to offer a number of efficient technological solutions and fintech know-how to our partner.

Besides that, our team has enhanced the KYC process to verify the identity of investors and companies before they start making financial transactions. The part of the KYC process is manual, and our software developers have worked to fully automate it.

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Our client, Globacap aims to simplify and widen access to global capital via its automated capital markets platform. They use blockchain to create digital tokens that represent equity ownership. This process, known as “tokenization”, is carried out by Globacap under the oversight of the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) as part of the FCA Sandbox Cohort 4.

The owner of a token can make any transactions with it. And the transfer of equity ownership is carried out automatically in compliance with the UK company law. In addition, information on all transactions made for each specific token is stored in the blockchain.

Such tokens are easily transferable. And this offers a huge potential for the private investment landscape because previously illiquid investments can now be transacted efficiently in seconds instead of weeks, and with minimal overheads.

Globacap has a particular focus on small and medium-sized enterprises and plans to provide them with end-to-end capital raising, investor KYC, custody, and asset administration.
