Where can asset tokens be bought?

Sygnum clients can buy or transfer asset tokens on the Sygnum e-banking platform via our secondary market, SygnEx.

Can token holders transfer their security tokens to a private wallet?

Transferring your security tokens to an external private wallet is not possible. Currently, only wallets held in custody by Sygnum are whitelisted.

How can asset tokens be traded?

Asset tokens can be traded on SygnEx, Sygnum’s regulated secondary market, which can be accessed via the e-banking portal by clicking “Asset Token Trading”. On SygnEx, orders can be placed in the order book, or existing orders in the order book can be accepted. Automatic matching is not possible for regulatory reasons. 

What happens should Sygnum become insolvent? Who guarantees my deposits?

In the unlikely case of a Sygnum insolvency, Sygnum clients are protected by law and covered by the esisuisse bank deposit protection scheme, up to a maximum of CHF 100,000 per client. Asset tokens and all other crypto assets are held off balance sheet by Sygnum, and they are unaffected in the event of an insolvency. In this case, the tokens would be transferred to our clients’ external private wallets.  

Can every Sygnum client invest in asset tokens? Does the issuer have any control over who can invest?

Investment in all asset tokens on our platform are available to all Sygnum clients.  

Where will my tokens be secured?

Asset tokens are secured the same way protocol tokens like Bitcoin are. Sygnum’s regulated multi-custody solution has been engineered to provide institutional-grade security, enabling our clients to invest in the digital asset economy with complete trust.

Where can asset tokens be bought?

Asset tokens can be bought through Sygnum’s tokenisation platforms. Investors can either buy asset token through a subscription in the primary market via our issuance platform Desygnate or a buy order on our secondary trading marketplace SygnEx. Asset tokens can also be freely transferred to any investor on the Sygnum e-banking platform
