Decentralized Capital Markets

NEW YORK, 29/10/2020 - AllianceBlock, the protocol bridging the gap between traditional finance and DeFi by building the world’s first globally compliant decentralized capital market, has joined forces with holistic blockchain auditing firm CertiK to ensure the security and integrity of international settlements taking place in the AllianceBlock domestic network.

AllianceBlock is building a cross-industry financial bridge between traditional finance and DeFi, which started as an Ethereum sub-culture before transforming into the exponentially growing multi-billion dollar self-sustainable industry it is today.

We’re way past the parallel competition era of blockchain technology, where the subject of discussion was often focused on which digital currency is more viable than the rest of the pile, and have entered the vertical growth era, where we’re now exploring potential game-changing solutions, and by extent, scaling them to solve real-life expectations.

What AllianceBlock is trying to offer in this case, is an important aspect missing from fintech nowadays, considering the DLT industry is at the point where traditional banking institutions and even governments are getting involved with DeFi, among other blockchain-powered markets.

That would be a solution to the fact there is currently minimal to absolutely no reliability at all, as to how these, still exotic to traditional financiers, computing protocols operate.

“CertiK has firmly established itself as the leading provider of end-to-end cybersecurity solutions and we are delighted to team up with a company that is setting a new industry standard in blockchain security protocols.”

“Collaborating with CertiK extends our remit considerably when it comes to enhancing the safety and security of our network through a stringent verification process.In return, CertiK will become part of our ecosystem of stakeholders as we usher in a new, global participatory economy,”saidRachid Ajaja, Founder and CEO of AllianceBlock.

By connecting both traditional and tokenized asset issuers, liquidity providers and aggregators, traditional and decentralized exchanges, the AllianceBlock team aims to facilitate an ecosystem of trusted and verifiable partners, that would, in their turn, empower a reliable entry point between traditional finance and the broader crypto domain.

For that reason, AllianceBlock entrusts its cybersecurity to CertiK, a leader in whole-chain, smart-contracts and VAPT verification, in order to ensure all applications running on top of the AllianceBlock ecosystem are not subject to being potential vectors of malicious activity.

To achieve that status, not only AllianceBlock and its components will be examined in unparalleled detail, but the blockchain services provider also plans on verifying each and every DeFi solution that goes through its native network with the help of CertiK Professional Services Division.

The collaboration will also offer benefits to CertiK, opening the door for them to enter the capital market world and forge relationships with other members of the AllianceBlock ecosystem and, in doing so, becoming part of the new era of capital market infrastructure providers.

“We are excited to be the official security provider for one of the first regulated infrastructure providers for decentralized capital markets. Operations and services integrity is a top priority for AllianceBlock, hence our experienced team of engineers will be piloting the security side of things from top to toes, in a collective fashion.”-Yvan Nasr, Global Head of Professional Services, CertiK.
