The role of Securitize’s DS Protocol is to provide the proper Digital Ownership Architecture to address all aspects of the Digital Security lifecycle, which facilitates dynamic and open participation of multiple actors. With the release of this interface we expect to facilitate such participation, so that DS Tokens will be easier to exchange, and enriched thanks to new DS Apps created everywhere.
You can now access our smart contract’s code repository here: https://github.com/securitize-io/DSTokenInterfaces
This code includes the smart contracts defining the main interfaces required by the DS Protocol, as well as the ABIs (Application Binary Interfaces) that facilitate interacting with them. They are:
Readers of our DS Protocol white-paper will probably notice that one of the DS Services described there are currently missing. Yes, the Comms Service is not ready yet and will be published in a future release of DS Protocol code.
Our issuers are already enjoying the benefits of DS Tokens as compliant and extensible solutions, and you can expect more announcements from us about that soon.
We are also working closely with choice partner-regulated marketplaces, that are as excited as we are getting the first Security Tokens listed to be traded in a compliant way, fulfilling the liquidity promise of Digital Securities on the blockchain. A special mention in this space must go to OpenFinance Networks, which has helped us with the validation and testing of many of the concepts around the DS Protocol.
So stay tuned for the next posts, which will go into the details of the released code, and new announcements around our DS Protocol that will keep advancing an open ecosystem for Digital Securities.
UPDATE: New posts are now available covering more detail on the DS Protocol interfaces.
