IBN Announces CryptoCurrencyWire Audio Production Featuring Boustead Securities CEO Keith Moore and Upstream Co-Founder Mark Elenowitz

IBN, a multifaceted communications organization engaged in connecting public companies to the investment community, is pleased to announce the release of the latest CryptoCurrencyWire Audio Production as part of its sustained effort to provide specialized content distribution via widespread syndication channels.

CryptoCurrencyWire’s latest audio production features Keith Moore, CEO of corporate finance firm Boustead Securities, and Mark Elenowitz, Co-Founder of blockchain-powered securities exchange and trading app Upstream.

To begin the interview, Elenowitz provided an introduction to Upstream and detailed some of the advantages it offers to retail traders.

“We are really excited about our relationship with Boustead,” Elenowitz stated. “Boustead has been so instrumental in small cap capital raising and capital formation that they were a perfect candidate to partner with Upstream. Upstream is the only national securities exchange in the world that is powered by the ethereum blockchain. We’re an affiliate member of the World Federation of Exchanges. There are 250 members around the world, including New York, Nasdaq, Tokyo, London and Hong Kong. We’re the smallest, but our affiliate membership enables us to adhere to the highest standards of investor disclosures and protections.”

“What’s unique about our marketplace is that we’re designed for the global audience to be able to come in and have access to issuers that trade on other primary markets around the world,” he continued. “As Americans, we take it for granted that it’s very easy to download an app and open an account. It’s very difficult for the rest of the world to place securities transactions and buy stock. We are a direct-to-consumer marketplace. Investors can connect directly to our exchange through an app with a credit card, cash, cryptocurrency or PayPal. There are no intermediaries or market makers, meaning that there is no ability to have market manipulations like layering or spoofing and, most importantly, there’s no ability to borrow or hypothecate, so there’s no ability to short sell.”

Moore then detailed how Boustead Securities is leveraging Upstream as a secondary sale option for traders.

“Boustead is a broker-dealer focused primarily on raising capital for growth companies, both privately and publicly,” Moore added. “We believe in the financial circle of life – bringing investors into companies privately and having them exit publicly. We found over the years that, if you do that successfully for investors, they keep coming back… More recently, we’ve seen market forces that have disrupted small cap companies in particular by creating extreme selling pressure… They’re just trying to effectuate a profit by trading – high frequency traders using algorithms… That’s what attracted us to Mark and Upstream… We’re proud to be a supporter of Upstream by being an introducing broker for investors, so that, ultimately, they can be protected against market forces that have nothing to do with the validity of the company.”
