Thailand’s national stock exchange is reportedly planning to launch a blockchain-based market through which startups can raise money.
Santi Kiranand, who serves as a senior vice president for SET, told the publication that the blockchain-based platform wouldn’t be a carbon copy of SET – rather, it will more broadly provide a means for investors and startups to connect.
Kiranand told the Post:
“It will be a ‘marketplace’, not a miniature of the SET and the MAI, where investors generally believe that securities traded are well-selected and regulated. As [the marketplace] is not a trading board, there is no regulator to verify their quality and investors must make investments by themselves.”
SET’s senior vice president Santi Kiranand has said that 607 companies have expressed interest in the planned market thus far.
