Global Asset Xchange

Global Asset Xchange

Tokenize & trade anything - from art & diamonds to oil & yachts - on the Global Asset Xchange.

Primechain-G.A.X.

Introduction

Did you know that Bill Gates bought Leonardo da Vinci's journal "Codex Hammer" for $30 million in 1994. If that seems a lot for a 72-page journal, consider this - a lock of Elvis Presley's hair sold for $115,000 in 2002. And Marilyn Monroe's "Happy Birthday Mr. President" dress sold for $1.26 million in 1999.

So far, investment in such "exotic" assets was restricted to billionaires. Now with the Global Asset Xchange you can buy "fractions" of exotic (and even non-exotic assets like stressed assets and oil) for a few hundred dollars.

Global Asset Xchange (G.A.X.) is a permissioned shared blockchain for dematerializing, tokenizing, fractionalizing and trading in any asset. G.A.X. handles the entire smart asset lifecycle process - creation, issuing, trading, escrow, redemption and retirement.

Why GAX?

  1. Since GAX is a blockchain, it removes the characteristic of infinite reproducibility from a digital asset. It confirms that each unit of value was transferred only once, solving the long-standing problem of double spending.

  2. The GAX blockchain can assign title rights because it provides a record that compels offer and acceptance.

  3. By storing data across its network, the GAX blockchain eliminates the risks that come with data being held centrally.

  4. GAX assets are fungible and enable investors to enjoy cash flows accruing from their assets e.g. rent from art displays.

  5. GAX assets undergo scrutiny and due-diligence and all relevant documents are available to each GAX node.

This can lower financing costs, optimize working capital and improve business efficiency.
