Securitize is partnering with one of the blockchain industry’s largest security token exchange companies as it open-sources the code behind its in-house protocol.

The Digital Securities (DS) protocol repository is available on Github, according to the company, which announced the developments on Monday during CoinDesk’s Consensus 2019 conference.

Carlos Domingo, Securitize’s co-founder and CEO, said that he believes the technology created by his team has “proven itself in the marketplace.” With the code open-sourced, developers will be able to create dapps on top of the protocol, creating new opportunities for the market, according to Domingo.

“It was important to us that developers had a viable venue to actually make a difference with their code, instead of developing on something that may never see actual use,” he told CoinDesk.

Securitize is also launching a new version of its platform, featuring a control panel, which will allow users easier issue and manage the lifecycle of their tokens, the company announced.

More listings

The news came on the wheels of another announcement: last week, it became public that Securitize had partnered with tZERO, the tokenization and trading platform for security tokens by the blockchain subsidiary of Overstock. Now tZERO will list some tokens by Securitize on its alternative trading system (ATS).

Commenting the partnership, the CEO of tZERO Saum Noursalehi told CoinDesk that Securitize seemed a good match as it had been “executing well in the space and providing good quality assets.”

tZERO became the third secondary trading platform for Securitize, after SharesPost, OpenFinance and AirSwap, where it got listed last year. However, for the Overstock’s subsidiary, is will be the first case of outside tokens listed on the platform — now the only one traded on tZERO is its own private equity token tZERO Preferred (issued on ethereum).
