DENVER (May 7, 2021) – Equa, a leading immutable governance platform that scales with organizations from formation to day-to-day governance, opens participation in its new strategy of offering promissory notes and a policy to invest the proceeds into Bitcoin (BTC) treasury and corporate treasury tools for private companies. As part of its ongoing commitment to bringing digital asset opportunities to its clients, Equa also will be offering platform subscribers the capability to create new non-fungible tokens (NFT) on its platform.
Shawn Owen, Founder and CEO of Equa, expressed, "We firmly believe in the new and innovative financial tools that digital currencies offer. This is why we're very excited to announce the opening of our private offering and use of proceeds to purchase Bitcoin for Equa's corporate treasury. The launch of NFT capabilities further demonstrates our commitment to providing our clients with cutting-edge opportunities in the digital assets space.” A Bitcoin advocate since early 2011, Shawn Owen helped pioneer cryptocurrency-backed lending with the launch of SALT where he remains involved as a Board Member.
Equa's NFT offering supports clients with the ability to create NFTs. Since Equa is blockchain-agnostic, companies can choose to mint their NFTs on any blockchain when working with Equa. Equa supports blockchains ETH, EOS and RVN. Company NFTs can be seamlessly integrated into Equa's cap management platform, which provides simple and secure management. Early participants will be able to earn Equa Cash for claiming their NFT early. Equa makes it frictionless to gather the required information to create company NFTs and register them on a blockchain. Starting today, Equa users can claim NFTs representing their organization. Claim your NFT here.
Shawn Owen shared, "Equa’s experience in blockchain and crypto transactions and management has given us unique insight into how to structure a non-fungible token. Designed so that it’s easy for organizations and their token holders from end-to-end, our innovative solution allows for easy token creation and the benefits of blockchain records using crypto-enabled signatures to create an immutable record."
Equa's Bitcoin-backed promissory notes will be issued at two separate interest rates depending on the amount invested. Those purchasing promissory notes less than $25,000 earn 5% APY, while those purchasing promissory notes greater than $25,000 earn 13% APY paid out weekly. Those interested in participating in this round, can register early on Equa’s ID platform EquanimID.

DENVER (March 23, 2021) – Equa today announces integration partnerships with Tokensoft, Horizen Labs, PolyMath, and AIKON to enhance solutions for equity management and distribution, issuance, and tokenization. Equa is the leading immutable governance platform that scales from organizational formation to day-to-day investment management, meeting the demands of today's owners and entrepreneurs.

Equa is tackling this problem.,” said Equa CEO, Shawn Owen. “Ultimately, the solution will come from marrying cutting edge technology with better governance. We are delighted partners Tokensoft, PolyMath, Horizen Labs, and AIKON join us in this vision of the future and are eager to bring our integrated solutions to a large and growing market of forward-thinking entrepreneurs.”
Coinbase-backed Tokensoft, which is providing know-your-customer (KYC), anti-money-laundering (AML) and accreditation services to Equa during its own fundraising efforts, has partnered to extend KYC/AML/accreditation features to Equa’s platform. Tokensoft helps ensure compliance with regulations in over fifty countries; each investor is asked to comply with requirements in their individual jurisdiction. The integration allows clients using Equa’s Issuance Portal access to these features for a seamless experience when digitally signing and receiving documents related to crypto and fiat currency collection.
Tokensoft CEO, Mason Borda, comments, "Our mission aligns with Equa in advancing the compliant adoption fintech solutions to empower shareholders in private markets. We are excited to integrate with Equa and help provide their clients a better experience managing their investments.”
Horizen Labs partners with Equa to help enhance trust and transparency, one of the critical benefits of blockchain to enterprises, for Equa’s clients and their investors. This partnership serves to enhance the promise of uptime, security, and efficiency to Equa platform users.
“Without trust, business agreements are meaningless. The current state-of-affairs around company formation and equity management is broken and, worse, opaque. How can you have trust without transparency? We look forward to tackling these challenges side-by-side with Equa,” says Horizen Labs COO Dean Steinbeck.
PolyMath, a white label toolkit to deliver an end-to-end security token journey, and Equa partnered to create a more secure and compliant investor/investment ecosystem. The partnership will allow Equa clients to use the PolyMath ERC-1400 security token in future issuances, which means security tokens will be jurisdictionally compliant from issuance through to Cap Table Management. PolyMath’s promise to evolve as the security token market matures ensures Equa’s client solutions will also adapt to meet new security and regulatory requirements.
“Equa is taking an innovative approach to developing solutions for cap table management and other company governance and investor needs. We are delighted to partner with them to improve the user experience of our joint clients,” says Polymath CEO Trevor Koverko.
Equa is integrating with AIKON to provide a blockchain identity solution that would allow Equa clients to easily update their multisignature infrastructure wallets and blockchain-agnostic tools, which offers a far simpler user experience than the processes currently required to update multisig wallets. The Equa-ORE ID integration allows the interoperability of Equa’s platform regardless of whether a client is holding or managing a particular cryptocurrency, fiat currency, or traditional equity. This means clients can put token or equity assets on blockchain as well as tokenize equity or use token digital assets on an immutable platform.
AIKON CEO Marc Binder comments, “We are excited to partner with Equa in its venture to bring the benefits of blockchain technology to a broader audience of companies and users. This really aligns with the mission we set out to accomplish with AIKON. We look forward to seeing the partnership evolve and grow.”
