In 2015, Dan Doney identified there was a need to enable real estate assets to become liquid. Many often invest in real estate and own houses around the world, however when faced with a crisis (2008 for example) there is no easy way to liquidate their investments. The need to be liquid against future revenue streams isn't a new concept - in fact, this fund structure is what led to the crash of '08, however one key element could have prevented it. Transparency. This thought brought Dan to the realization that if we could list assets in a way that was fully transparent, such as on the blockchain, it could prevent this from happening again. That's when Dan, along with former Navy classmates, John Hensel and Ronald Poe, formed Securrency. A platform to enable the securitization of assets, while providing regulatory compliance needed to list securities and trade them in a regulated secondary market.
After this discovery, Securrency realized the potential to tap into not only real estate assets, but also micro lending, energy, transportation, financial services, sports and entertainment, and gaming. The platform can be used across a multitude of industries. The Securrency platform performs identity proofing and distribution control with patented software.
