About Himalaya Capital Exchange - A Security Token Issuance Platform
Himalaya Capital Exchange is a project aimed at creating a tokenised
platform for Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) on a global, borderless, stock
exchange. The Platform As a Service eco-system would offer an alternative
to investment banks that are currently mandated to lead manage IPOs, and
give corporates and other entities raising public capital a less costly,
and more democratic option with instant access to global investors. The
platform would run on smart contract algorithms and at a later point make
use of Machine Learning and AI in matching in creating a marketplace.
