Liquefy is a Hong Kong based, security token issuance platform based on blockchain technology, that works with issuers to tokenize a variety of asset classes, with real estate being a key focus, to realize the value of tokenization.
“We see our partnership with Stan Group as an incredible opportunity to drive Hong Kong as a whole towards being a smart city with security token ownership and paperless ownership systems.” Mr. Adrian Lai, CEO of Liquefy, said, “Real estate is seen as a key sector where tokenization can drive investment. We are confident that we can initiate a paradigm shift in the Hong Kong real estate sector through STAN by Hong Kong.”
