Specializing in the complete tokenization rail that encompasses the entire lifecycle of tokenized securities, Tokeny has already tokenized €28 billion in assets and is a pioneer in market standardization, being the creator of the ERC3643, a technical market standard for tokenization.

The collaboration between Apex and Tokeny is poised to usher institutions into the tokenized financial market, a domain regarded as the future of the capital market. Tokeny’s role in this partnership is to enable Apex to offer their clients the ability to tokenize assets on the blockchain. This integration not only aims to reduce operational costs but also to expand revenue opportunities by reaching a broader range of investors in a compliant and seamless manner. Tokeny’s incorporation into Apex’s single-source solution is a pivotal element of this strategy, positioning Apex as a frontrunner in the era of tokenized finance.
