tZERO Named Most Innovative in Capital Markets by Benzinga in 2021 Global Fintech Awards

Firm Recognized for Its Innovative Platform, Comprehensive Technology Stack, Regulatory-First Approach, & Strategy

tZERO, a leader in blockchain innovation and liquidity for digital assets, announced today that it has won the 2021 Benzinga Global Fintech Award in the ‘Most Innovative in Capital Markets’ category. The award recognizes outstanding performance in capital markets and the most disruptive idea brought to market as a tool for retail traders and investors.

tZERO Interim CEO and Chief Legal Officer Alan Konevsky stated, “We are delighted to be recognized as the ‘Most Innovative in Capital Markets’ by Benzinga as we continue to democratize access to private capital markets and establish an efficient, compliant, and transparent approach to digitization of securities markets using blockchain. We look forward to continuing to lead in the digital asset space towards the vision of a unified, frictionless and inclusive digitally-native, self-regulating value ecosystem as we plan to launch our harmonized trading experience, providing one touchpoint for customers to trade private digital securities, cryptocurrencies, and other assets.”

tZERO was recognized as the ‘Most Innovative in Capital Markets’ by Benzinga for its contributions to the integration of distributed ledger technology within both private investment markets and existing capital markets infrastructures, with a focus on providing a superior user experience. Its private digital security trading platform, operated by its broker-dealer subsidiaries, most recently initiated trading of the Class A common stock of Exodus, a Delaware corporation that has developed a leading non-custodial cryptocurrency software platform, and has plans to support four additional private securities in the next three to six months. In addition, tZERO’s plans to merge the private digital security and cryptocurrency trading user experiences, and add access to public stocks and NFT securities, to create one seamless touchpoint for customers was also recognized as an innovative idea looking to the future of financial technology.

Benzinga’s 7th annual Global Fintech Awards recognizes and awards disruptive innovators that are actively working to create positive and diverse changes in the financial services industry. Winners are selected by a panel of judges, including Benzinga editorial staff, industry leaders, and advisors in the space, who score companies and executives based on the impact they have made in the areas of investing, technology, financial literacy, and more.

Since the inaugural Benzinga Fintech Awards in 2015, our listmakers have closed $300 million in deals and partnered with some of the biggest players in the industry.
