Overstock’s TØ Blockchain Platform Acquires Market Data Firm
Blockchain-powered securities trading platform tØ has acquired the assets of a Singapore technology firm as part of plans to enhance its information services.
The firm, Blue Ocean Financial Technology, is a finance data service provider, with a special focus on delivering information related to US securities.
Using the Blue Ocean assets, tØ – which is backed by online retail giant Overstock – is setting up a new company outside of the US, with an eye to use its infrastructure to deliver real-time market information.
TØ president Joe Cammarata said in a statement:
“Blue Ocean Technologies will provide investors in the rapidly growing Asian region with an avenue to execute U.S. equities during their usual business hours. This concept is the first of its kind, and has already attracted the attention of several large market-making clients to provide daily liquidity within our platform.”
Overstock has acquired other firms, including Wall Street brokerage firm SpeedRoute, as part of the build-up of the platform.
