About Himalaya Capital Exchange - A Security Token Issuance Platform
Himalaya Capital Exchange is one of most revolutionary and ground breaking ICOs. It is a project aimed at creating an alternative infrastructure to existing stock exchanges to facilitate Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) on a global, borderless, tech platform. The Platform As a Service eco-system would perform the role of investment banks thus saving 7-10% IPO fees paid to investment banks. The platform would create an instant connection between entrepreneurs around the world and investors around the world to raise capital with the safety of shares and bonds, perfectly complying with securities laws.

Frequently Asked Questions
What does your company HCX do?

Create jobs, innovation and wealth by transparently connecting entrepreneurs seeking capital with investors in every country.

What problem are you solving?

The Himalaya Capital Exchange platform enables people seeking capital to create trusting investment relationships with investors from around the world. 

Previous finance systems separated the innovators from the investors and charged high fees for non-transparent processes which restricted many people and countries from access to capital.

How are you changing the world?

From the smallest micro entrepreneur to the largest organisation, people can seek capital from investors around the world using a transparent, open and cost effective system. 
Enable innovators seeking capital to freely take part in multiple capital markets transactions with low to zero entry barriers, regardless of their knowledge of crypto or capital markets
Innovators can grow their business and provide new services and jobs.
Creating an open access platform for issuing digital assets and managing all parts of the fund raising process including book building, issuing securities and investor communications and investor servicing , dividend distribution and voting management using smart contracts. Auctions of government assets, syndicated loans and government bonds also to be included.
Remove barriers to raising capital. Create a transparent and open process to solve the problem of inefficiencies and high transaction costs of existing intermediaries.
Solve the problem of dealing with the complex laws, relationships, regulations, information asymmetry of the current system with a new tech empowered ecosystem.

What is the major social impact?

Provide entrepreneurs in every country a mechanism and community to drive social change and technological innovation by freely accessing global financial markets. 
Provide people in all countries the chance to grow their enterprise to create jobs and wealth.
Remove barriers to wealth creation which exist in some current financial systems.

Why use blockchain?

Previous financing methods required trusted central authorities such as a stock exchange, government regulators and approved advisors. Blockchain technologies can provide frictionless, easier and quicker access to capital without paying fees to central authorities and gatekeepers which restricts access.
With Himalaya Capital Exchange the trust is decentralized to the community. This decentralized trust concept and radical new transparency opens up the world of finance to many more people. The costs of raising money by listing shares will be driven down.

Disrupt or collaborate?

Himalaya Capital Exchange will disrupt processes that isolated people and communities from access to capital. Later, we will also build a marketplace which will collaborate with investors, advisors, innovators, and developers building third party applications for the asset management and private equity industries seeking to broaden access to capital.
