Like I said in February, they got out of crypto because they didn't want to get tied up in the mess that was brewing and the mess is upon us. Nice timing by tZERO.
I think they are running under the radar for a reason and that maybe they saw the writing on the wall with Crypto and didn't want to get tied into a future mess. Also wonder if the FTX fiasco made them want to be quiet a little longer than maybe they wanted. One year anniversary of Goon coming on board is approaching. Based on nothing but a gut feeling I think that when news comes it comes BIG.
Definitely still very interested in this story. The ICE, connection is still new hopefully they are reorganizing and now with the weight of the crypto site off, the can focus on the core business of adding to the Tzero exchange. Definitely have been kicking myself should have loaded up on the aspen last year. ASPD on the exchange.
very true and I do like to think it is just a matter of time and I think they are quiet for a reason.
But eventually they'll need customers and revenue. I like the concept, but see very little in the way of customers and revenue thus far. We'll see if those things come.
There is little to no news and you have to check their website, or twitter & Telegram to find things out. The website was recently updated and it is much better now. I am a regular buyer and I will keep accumulating and hoping they keep running under the radar as I do so as anything under 5$ is a give away.
They are currently the only FINRA and SEC approved ATS, I have lost track of how many patents they have and their C Suite is impressive.
I have no special knowledge of when, but when the dam finally breaks this could be huge.
Just haven't seen much news progress thus far. Seems like very few companies listed. Do you us tzero yourself and how have you found the experience?
Not sure if you are on this yet but the train is about to leave the station as they are assembling a whos who BOD.
Medici Day tomorrow so if tZERO/TZROP is going to do something it could start tomorrow.
Companies like PMPG are perfect for tZERO. Well maybe not perfect but the ATS is for companies that can't comply with 15c2-11.
Good luck and I have been paying attention to it for a couple of months and opened a position in December at $2.25 and today it hit $6.00. The new CEO is a big deal.
Depending how the other investment we both have plays out, I could be taking a strong position here in the future!
I just opened an account, still have a long way to go as I dig into this. My friends in the tech industry are all over this, but im pretty naive to the whole blockchain thing.
Disregard that post as it was before I really figured it out.
Tzero:TZROP is a Security token trading on the Tzero Exchange
https://www.tzero.com/ and you can see the order book/activity here:
Tzero is an ATS https://www.investopedia.com/terms/a/alternative-trading-system.asp
ATS is a trading system built on the Blockchain and it is intended to have full transparency and same day settlement on all trades. This could be the next BIG thing as companies move away from the BS that takes place on Wall St.
Nice to see someone here.
I’ve had a friend over the last few weeks (a non otc trader friend) who kept bugging me about this. Like you said I say a dark defunct ticker in the greys and said “what the hello are you taking about”?? And moved on.
I just saw that you were here on this board also. I still don’t get it though…just started digging here.
NEW YORK, February 23, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--tZERO, a leader in blockchain innovation and liquidity for digital assets, announced today that its broker-dealer subsidiary, tZERO ATS, successfully launched support for clearing and settlement securities transactions for itself and its broker-dealer affiliates on February 22, 2022, a key milestone for tZERO’s next-generation trading ecosystem. tZERO’s broker-dealer subsidiaries are now able to independently onboard additional private securities at a faster pace, accelerate the settlement times of transactions on its private security trading platform, and improve the user experience in transferring cash and securities to and from third-party platforms.
tZERO Interim Chief Executive Officer and Chief Legal Officer Alan Konevsky stated, "Yesterday’s launch was successful and will significantly increase the velocity at which we can onboard new assets to the tZERO ATS, giving customers a greater variety of investment opportunities and enabling increased liquidity for private capital markets."
This clearing and custody model supports the current and future private digital securities that trade on the tZERO ATS, which are uncertificated securities with focused blockchain functionality to increase transparency. It will also support NMS securities, which are public securities that trade on national exchanges.
In addition to supporting a traditional broker-dealer custody, tZERO expects, subject to regulatory approval, to implement parallel clearing, settlement, and custodial solutions to support digital asset securities, which are securities issued and settled on a blockchain, to its platform. This solution will initially be implemented through user-directed settlement in partnership with a custodian and, later, in conjunction and in accordance with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)’s statement that outlined how broker-dealers can engage with digital asset securities, including maintaining custody of these assets and settling on-chain without a clearing firm or a custodian.
"tZERO is committed to transforming the current trading infrastructure of digital assets to support next-generation capital markets and innovating the ways these assets can be custodied and transferred. Being able to support next-generation infrastructure and settlement and clearance systems in place today will propel operational efficiencies and bring value to both the company and its stakeholders," concluded Konevsky.
tZERO is a technology firm with the goal of democratizing access to private capital markets. tZERO brings together issuers and financial firms seeking a transparent, automated, digitally enabled marketplace and investors seeking access to unique private assets, public equities, cryptocurrencies, and other digital assets, including non-fungible tokens.

NEW YORK, February 22, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--tZERO, a leader in blockchain innovation and liquidity for digital assets, announced today it will appoint David Goone, currently the Chief Strategy Officer of Intercontinental Exchange, Inc. (NYSE: ICE), to become tZERO’s new Chief Executive Officer. Related to Goone’s appointment, tZERO also announced that it has completed an additional strategic funding round from new and existing investors. Participants in the financing include NYSE parent company ICE, which will become a significant minority shareholder of tZERO, Overstock.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: OSTK), an original investor in tZERO, and Medici Ventures, L.P., a blockchain-focused fund whose general partner is an entity affiliated with Pelion Venture Partners, among others.
Goone, who has helped build ICE into a trading, clearing, and data powerhouse during his 21-year tenure with the company, will begin his role with tZERO in March 2022.
tZERO, through a wholly owned subsidiary, operates an SEC-regulated alternative trading system (ATS) and broker-dealer in the digital asset space, and is a technology firm with the goal of democratizing access to capital markets. tZERO brings together issuers and financial firms seeking a transparent, automated, digitally enabled marketplace and investors seeking access to unique private assets, public equities, cryptocurrencies, and other digital assets, including non-fungible tokens (NFTs). tZERO also has a joint venture with BOX Digital Markets LLC to launch the nation’s first regulated blockchain-enabled securities exchange, known as the Boston Security Token Exchange (BSTX).
"I look forward to bringing my three decades of product innovation and strategic experience forged in the exchange and derivatives trading industry to drive continued growth and operational excellence at tZERO," said David Goone.
"David is a world-class leader and visionary and is uniquely qualified to lead tZERO through the next phase of its evolution and growth," said Matt Mosman, Chairman of tZERO’s Board of Directors and General Partner at Pelion Venture Partners. "We are laser-focused on empowering tZERO to grow into its full potential as it continues to lead the space in providing investors with a seamless and holistic way to access all assets, such as cryptocurrencies, digital and conventional securities, and other assets, including NFTs."
"David Goone was present at many of ICE’s milestone moments and deals over two decades, was a key player on our management team as we built our world-class trading, clearing, and data infrastructure and product line, and has been a steward of our problem-solving culture," said Jeff Sprecher, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Intercontinental Exchange. "David’s leadership and his mastery of trading, data, and clearing technology will be a big asset as tZERO begins its next chapter leading the growth and adoption of next-generation market infrastructure."
"Having worked side-by-side with David for many years, I saw first-hand his skill in innovating and implementing products that benefit customers and drive evolution in the exchange space," said Lynn Martin, President of the New York Stock Exchange. "I look forward to David’s next chapter as CEO of tZERO and witnessing his continued application of technology to trading."
Jonathan Johnson, CEO of Overstock, stated, "Overstock has been an early advocate for accelerating the adoption of blockchain technology, particularly in capital markets. We have long supported tZERO to do just that. With the addition of David as tZERO’s CEO, its successful new round of financing, and the recent approval of BSTX, it is a great opportunity for Overstock to invest more capital in tZERO. We believe the new capital infusion will allow the company to scale and continue its innovation in leveraging blockchain technology to create a more efficient and transparent Wall Street, ultimately revolutionizing and democratizing capital markets."
Joining ICE in 2001 from CME Group, Goone was a driving force at ICE as its Chief Strategy Officer since its inception, through its IPO, and during its continued growth. Goone helped build the company from its early stage to a Fortune 500 company with over $7 billion in net revenue in 2021. During his tenure, Goone developed and managed many of the company’s product lines and oversaw ICE Benchmark Administration, which has administered LIBOR and the global gold and silver fixings. He has served on many of ICE’s subsidiary exchange boards and represents ICE on several industry boards, including the Depository Trust Clearing Corporation (DTCC), Options Clearing Corporation (OCC), and the National Futures Association (NFA). Goone also served as Vice Chairman of CETIP S.A. until its merger with B3 exchange in Brazil.
Terms of ICE’s investment in the tZERO financing are not being disclosed, and the transaction will have no impact to ICE’s adjusted financial results.
Investors should note that trading securities could involve substantial risks, including no guarantee of returns, costs associated with selling and purchasing, no assurance of liquidity, which could impact the price and ability to sell, and possible loss of principal invested. Further, an investment in single security could mean lack of diversification and, consequently, higher risk. Potential investors are urged to consult a professional adviser regarding any economic, tax, legal or other consequences of trading any securities as described herein.

I can't believe that there is still no one here. Tzero-TZROP and BSTX are all interwoven and Blockchain ATS will be where the markets head.
Guess I didn't realize that TZROP is only available as Security Token at TZERO. I own it at TZERO but I knew there was at OTC symbol for it but now I see it is not available at OTC as it is dark and defunct.
I am sure there are MANY people that have no clue what TZERO is or that an ATS even exist. People may just go to OTC and see a dark defunct Grey market stock and move on.
I have a few of those as well. Been waiting way too long for a few of them and just hoping to break even on a few.
Been seeing too many good things about TZERO to sit on the sidelines.
I'm not in it yet myself, waiting for the Big Bang Theory to play out on another ticker
I will be adding more tomorrow. Question is do I add TZROP:OTC or TZROP:TZERO. Currently hold it in TZERO and up 55.7% since I got it and I see nothing but upside in the long term.
Good call, ya I saw the new Block Chain announcement the other day
I have a feeling this board is about to get real busy.
no one here? Off to some other board/Twitter I guess.
I dont think TZROP and OSTKO can be shorted. Thats the whole premise of the separate platform for trading these stocks. That said, I like the way you think and I sure hope this gives it some attention and it takes off!
