Oasis is the first US ATS that allows Subscribers to trade digital ("blockchain") securities on the ATS and make payment for those digital securities via digital cash (i.e., Stablecoins such as USDC and DAI and, when available, central bank digital currencies ("CBDCs")) or fiat through a custodian. Oasis's ATS is authorized to allow its Subscribers to:

1. Trade both registered and unregistered securities on the ATS

2. Trade digital securities OTC

3. Trade both equity and debt in digital form through the use of a blockchain

4. Invest in initial private offerings recorded on a blockchain

The expected ATS launch date is Q2 2021.

"Obtaining authorization as a FINRA member has the potential to unleash a tremendous market opportunity; it advances investor protection and has the potential to unlock trillions of dollars of value in the digital securities space," said Pat LaVecchia, CEO and Co-Chairman, Oasis Pro Markets. "Moving quickly with a regulation-first mindset and a deeply experienced team is a tremendous competitive advantage and the only way to ensure that digital securities trading is viable long-term within the U.S. financial system."

Oasis's ATS provides access to liquid private and public digital security markets via a secure interface that offers a range of custodians and digital security investments.  The ATS focuses on

1. Institutional Quality Interface

2. Overall Low Cost of Trading

3. Robust Technology

"Oasis's ATS is set apart from other trading systems by the ability to accommodate payment for digital securities in Stablecoins through a subscriber’s custodian and enable a more accessible, liquid, and transparent market for privately offered digital securities. We have worked tirelessly to deliver low friction, digital security trading platform with streamlined onboarding and the type of volume that will excite issuers of securities and subscribers alike, whether accredited or institutional investors," added Joseph Quintilian, Co-Chairman, Oasis Pro Markets.

"The only responsible path to successful financial industry adoption of blockchain's advantages in digital securities trading is through registered entities acknowledging the unmatched benefits and credibility provided by a regulated financial system," said LaVecchia.
