Jurisdiction and License

Tokenomica is regulated by different entities since no single jurisdiction is able to cover all of the services provided by the company. The firm also has two licenses from Malta for its exchange platform. Tokenomica is a licensed VFA (Virtual Financial Assets) Act Class 4 service provider for its digital assets exchange. As for the security tokens exchange, it has received a licence from MiFID (Markets in Financial Instruments Directive) Category 3.


Tokenomica uses the Waves platform for its embedded compliance, easy adoption, and low transaction fees with no gas. Although the company has considered Ethereum for its wide adaptation, its expensive transaction fees and complex environment for customizable smart-contracts led the team to adopt an alternative blockchain.

Tokenomica utilizes several solutions provided by the Waves platform: Waves Blockchain, Waves Matcher, Oracles, Waves Keepers,Waves Smart Accounts and Smart Assets, RIDE Programming Language, and the Waves Smart Contract Console (an Integrated Development Environment). These tools allow Tokenomica to fully customize its blockchain stack at a low and fixed cost while maintaining a high transaction speed, making Waves a favorable platform for creating a decentralized exchange. Tokenomica has also developed its own KYC procedures and gateways, allowing the transfer of assets between Tokenomica’s platform and other blockchain or bank accounts.
