Notwithstanding the day to day market sentiments and prices of cryptocurrencies, it is an undeniable fact that crypto industry is set to burgeon to trillions of dollars in coming years.

Consider the overwhelming proof in favour of the crypto industry bracing itself for tremendous growth, maturity and opportunities for all players.

Of the over $13 billion funding that has gone into ICOs in 2018, institutional investors and crypto funds have played a significant role.

Morgan Stanley has just published a report announcing crypto as an institutional asset class.

Pension and Endowment funds are investing in crypto focused fund managers - like Yale University's Endowment Fund ($29 billion AUM) invested in 2 crypto funds, one being A16z fund.

The traditional wall street incumbents NASDAQ, JP Morgan, NYSE's owner ICE group, and several others are making forays into security tokens ecosystem.

Fidelity has just announced custody solutions for crypto with Fidelity Digital Assets.

The gaps that crypto industry earlier had for institutional capital getting into crypto, such as institutional grade custody, AML/KYC, reconciliation and mark to market, index funds, derivatives trading, loans against crypto, fund manager talent pool etc are all set to be filled in coming years, and at a breakneck speed given the resources and capital some players are investing in this industry.

The successful crypto pioneers such as Coinbase, Binance are acquiring spate of regulatory licenses such as Broker dealer license, Alternative Trading System License, and Exchange License in multiple jurisdictions to prepare for the coming wave of security tokens.

With institutional capital flowing into crypto in a big way starting in 2017-18, we can expect the crypto space to get more legitimate and the ecosystem to get more robust and institutional grade.

White Paper

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.

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.

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.

Connect with our 10000+ global crypto community at face to face meetings across 15 countries Sep 2018.

Get discovered by crypto funds, HNI investors in new regions.
