PAN-European FinTech initiative LiquidShare has entered into a partnership with ConsenSys’ PegaSys team to build a blockchain infrastructure for SME shares.

LiquidShare, founded in 2017 by AFS Group, BNP Paribas, CACEIS, Caisse des Dépôts, Euroclear, Euronext, S2IEM and Société Générale, is a blockchain-based post-trade settlement infrastructure that aims to improve SMEs’ access to capital markets.

Thibaud de Maintenant, CEO of LiquidShare, said that they have very stringent requirements in terms of performance, privacy and security as they are building a regulated entity operating a private blockchain to register and settle in the private and public markets.
