BlockState is a Swiss security token platform for non-bankable assets such as SME equity and debt or real estate. We digitise assets to directly connect issuers and investors.
More than 60% of the world’s assets are inaccessible* via traditional market infrastructure.

Tokenisation removes access barriers, making any asset investable for a global investor base.
Digitise ownership to your assets and start fundraising quickly, easily and at low cost.
The range of unbankable assets is huge. We facilitate tokenisation for a range of asset classes from equities, real estate, debt to any other unbankable asset like commodities, art and more.
By tokenising existing or newly created company stock, we provide a compliant legal for an equity backed token that enable full shareholder rights like voting and dividends as well as seamless investability and transferrability.
Tokenisation is not limited to equity or physical assets. Tokenising bonds enables you to raise debt capital much faster, easier and at lower cost than traditional infrastructure allows.
Real estate can be inaccessible due to the locality of the asset class and the large ticket sizes. Digitising ownership using tokens backed by direct ownership, removes these constraints and opens new options for fundraising.
Many unlisted asset classes like seldom commodities, fine art and other unique high-value assets can be made accessible to a broader investor base, by fractionalising ownership and enabling digital transferrability.
Security tokens digitally represent the ownership rights to your asset in the form of a smart contract, allowing streamlined digital issuance, management and transfer of ownership.
Financial product issuance can be opaque and challenging. Our issuance-, management- and reporting dashboards take the complexities and manual labor out of lifecycle management and make your job a lot easier.
The BlockState platform provides the technological backbone, legal framework and a strong partner network to cater to any individual issuance needs and bring your STO live within 10-12 weeks.
The BlockState team combines world class management and financial expertise, leading tech talent, broad regulatory experience and a proven track record in scaling big businesses.

An Equity Token Offering, or ETO, is a novel way for investors of any kind to invest into equity. In an ETO, investors of any kind can buy equity in the form of a token. Once bought, the ownership of the token grants all the shareholder rights that a “normal” investment into a company would offer, using a system of smart contracts that run on the Ethereum Blockchain.
The main difference between an ETO and an ICO is that in an ETO, investors can buy real shares in a company, while in an ICO, investors can usually only acquire so called “utility-tokens”. Utility tokens can be used as a type of voucher or unit of currency for a specific underlying product or service and do not grant shareholder rights
BlockState’s mission is to increase the accessibility to financial markets for all types of investors. Tokenizing our own equity and making it available to investors of all types is only consistent with our mission. Moreover, ETOs bear the advantage of being able to reach a broad audience – private and institutional investors alike. Last but not least, the prospect of immediate liquidity of the shares is an attractive benefit for investors.
BlockState will employ the raised capital to grow its team, build company operations and deliver its product: The next generation financial infrastructure for the asset management, debt capital and derivatives markets.
ETOs are complex legal and technological constructs. Using a fundraising platform specialized on ETOs provides the legal and technological framework to allow companies perform ETOs. Investors must sign up to the whitelist. If approved, their must verify their identity. Once the presale starts, they can buy company equity in the form of tokens. The tokens are stored on a dedicated digital wallet.
