Upstream dual listing advantages
Upstream’s goal is to become a premiere global trading hub giving exchanges and issuers exposure to digital-first investors around the world.
1. Access to an advanced global trading app
As a MERJ Exchange market and the first exchange to be powered by a blockchain, Upstream features an accessible trading app with simple sign-up, real-time trades, and a transparent orderbook that actively prevents market manipulation.
Trading pairs are quoted, traded, and immediately settled exclusively against the exchanges’ U.S. dollar stablecoin, which is backed 1-for-1 with users’ deposits of fiat currency. And, notably, Upstream does not sell its client order flow.
2. Web3 investor engagement tools
Upstream offers a streamlined bridge into Web3 to grow digital reach. Engage investors with digital coupons (NFTs) redeemable for products and experiences to build shareholder loyalty, capture new customers, and create ongoing sales locally and globally.
3. Expanded reach to today’s digital-first investor
Today’s issuers are looking to dual list for many reasons including increased liquidity potential, increased access to capital, and expanded trading hours as exchanges may operate in different time zones.
Dual listing on Upstream offers these same benefits while giving the unique ability for Upstream investors to purchase shares using digital currency in the form of the USDC stablecoin, credit, debit, PayPal, and traditional bank payments. This modernization of payment methods aims to widen the investor pool giving issuers access to a global, digital-first investor base and enabling issuers to reach new shareholders internationally and enhance price discovery.
Upstream enables direct and expanded market access 5 days a week, 20 hours a day with real-time trading available right from investors’ smartphones. Upstream aims to expand a global trading ecosystem where efficiency, fairness, and accessibility are enforced by blockchain technology.
