Welcome to Liminal.market, a fully regulated & cutting-edge protocol that leverages blockchain technology to facilitate the buying and selling of tokenized securities, including stocks and ETFs, with a real underlying asset. By doing so, Liminal.market liberates users from vendor lock-in and unlocks the vast potential of the DeFi market.
Liminal.market sets itself apart by offering a true 1:1 collateralization for every tokenized security purchased. When you invest through our protocol, you're buying the actual underlying real world asset (RWA) on the stock market, unlike other platforms that provide only derivatives. This approach removes the risks associated with derivatives and ensures that each stock or stock fraction is represented by an equal amount of on-chain tokens.
With Liminal.market, you gain access to an extensive selection of over 5,600 on-chain tokenized securities, such as stocks and ETFs. Our platform surpasses competitors by offering a vast range of options, ensuring users can find the right investment opportunities for their needs.
To begin trading on Liminal.market, users must fund their broker account via a bank transfer. Soon, we will be introducing USDT support to make the funding process even more seamless. Once your account is funded, an aUSD token is minted, representing the value held in your brokerage account. This token is always 1:1 against the dollar, redeemable for USD, and non-tradable on the market. As a standard ERC20 token, aUSD has the limitation of only being transferable to a SecurityToken, which represents a tokenized security.
Liminal.market creates a unique SecurityToken for every symbol purchased. These tokens, which are standard ERC20 tokens with certain limitations, represent the underlying tokenized security. SecurityTokens can only be transferred to aUSD tokens, signaling the system that you wish to sell the tokenized security in exchange for aUSD.
Liminal.market requires users to complete a KYC/AML process before executing trades. This verification is necessary to comply with stock exchange regulations, ensuring that all users are properly identified.
Traditional trading platforms often lock users into their ecosystem, making it difficult to switch platforms without incurring costs or liquidating shares. With Liminal.market, the user's wallet unlocks access to any platform, as the data is stored on-chain and can be easily displayed. This approach eliminates lock-in and provides greater flexibility for traders.

The platform mints and burns tokens in response to these changes, ensuring a seamless experience that requires no user intervention.
