About us

The time has come to change the way private companies finance themselves. Join us on our mission to transform Private Equity into Open Equity.

Our Vision

Aktionariat AG is
a young startup with a bold vision.

Today, only 230 out of more than 500′000 Swiss companies are publicly traded on the stock market. We have the legal, technical, and economic ideas to change this and to create liquid markets for thousands of additional Swiss companies, potentially unlocking billions in dormant economic value. Companies benefit from better access to capital and investors benefit from a broader investment universe. Unlike today’s crypto assets, which are mostly known for short-term speculation, we want to leverage the underlying technology to enable long-term value-investing and to build a culture of local, sustainable, transparent and decentralized finance.

Aktionariat provides a platform for issuing, managing and trading tokenized shares. Blockchain technology enables a direct market between the company and its investors, and also serves as a distributed ledger. If you would like to learn more about our platform or join our shareholders, see our Investor Relations Page.

Our core values & capabilities

We enable the creation of decentralized markets for shares that allow liquidity, inclusion, and a better alignment of interests of the company and its stakeholders. Thereby we want to shape the future of financial ecosystems.

27K+

Investors

Our ecosystem consists of a growing number of investors who finance Swiss SMEs by purchasing shares.

20+

Partners

We are working with an increasing number of partners in various fields in DeFi and TradFi.

Frankencoin

Frankencoin is a collateralized, oracle-free stablecoin that tracks the value of the Swiss franc. Its strengths are its decentralization and its versatility. Unlike other collateralized stablecoins, Frankencoin's auction-based liquidation mechanism does not depend on external price sources. It is very flexible with regards to the used collateral. In principle, it supports any collateral with sufficient availability on the market. However, its liquidation mechanism is slower than that of other collateralized stablecoins, making it less suitable for highly volatile types of collateral.
