Templum to Acquire Liquid Markets Group

Tokenized digital assets represent the next evolution of capital formation and secondary liquidity. While tokenized offerings face uncertainty and regulatory scrutiny, we at Templum believe that a regulated, secure platform and market infrastructure will help the digital asset sector become more accessible, efficient and scalable.

That is why we are excited to announce our intent to acquire Liquidity M Capital LLC (“Liquid M”), a regulated broker dealer and Alternative Trading System (“ATS”). The combination of Templum’s team, technology prowess, and capital with Liquid M’s ATS, Quotation Bureau, and Qualified Matching Service for digital assets as securities will put Templum in a position to drive the evolution of this asset class.

In addition to the acquisition of Liquidity M’s broker-dealer (subject to regulatory approval), Templum has formed a distinguished board of advisors comprised of former regulators, financial services professionals and technologists with a wealth of experience in both the digital currency space and traditional financial markets. Our new board members include:

  • Troy A. Paredes, Founder of Paredes Strategies LLC and Former SEC Commissioner; 
  • Jeffery Bandman, Founder of Bandman Advisors LLC, Former FinTech Advisor to the Chairman of the CFTC and Founding Director and Architect of LabCFTC; 
  • Elizabeth Stark, CEO and Co-Founder of Lightning Labs; and 
  • David Weild IV, Founder of Weild & Co. and Former Vice Chairman, Head of Global Listings and Executive Committee Member of NASDAQ. 

The new Templum will offer the first regulated technology solution for the issuance and secondary trading of digital assets offered as securities. We are thrilled to begin this new chapter in the evolution of the digital asset markets.
