I would suggest that WA look seriously ( if not already doing so ) at blockchain technologies and how they can be applied to the bond / micro-bond markets.
Presently there is a golden opportunity to build out technically into this space where companies and developers can enjoy a rapidly expanding market capitalisation married with soft regulation.
Having spent 20 years developing front office trading and risk applications in tier 1 banks I have switched my efforts entirely to developing on blockchain technologies - which are far more then just speculating crypto-coins. I’m only just starting to see the true potential of distributed ledgers and trust-less technology.
Its a long-shot, but if anyone at WA or in the community are interested in this space please reach out to me, I’d love to get more involved in this space.
Perhaps one of the more serious technologies in this space is Algorand. If you’d like I can send a few references over. Otherwise feel free to get in touch with me firstname.lastname@example.org
