Enabling leaders in digital asset issuance

Digital assets offer attractive benefit to companies and their investors. However, the cost of designing, developing and maintaining a digital asset platform is beyond the resources of most companies. For service providers who want to resell digital asset technology, the option of buying or licensing from providers is cost prohibitive. As a result, firms are unable to provide the benefits of digital assets to their issuer clients in a cost-effective manner. Through the VDN program, Vertalo is granting access to its technology platform to participating companies to build their digital asset business.

Read The VDN Whitepaper

Barriers to entry for technology resellers must fall for adoption of digital assets to improve. To address this need, Vertalo is introducing the Vertalo Distribution Network (VDN). VDN provides a comprehensive technology, product, and service digital asset platform that enables companies to build a successful digital asset business, without incurring upfront software development or licensing costs. Most importantly, VDN enables a participant to scale their digital business without limitation to the number of their issuer clients, deals or investors.

Through the VDN program, Vertalo is granting access to its technology platform to participating companies to build their digital asset business. By externalizing the deal flow and discovery process to resellers, Vertalo acts as a sales and business development partner to companies and entrepreneurs to facilitate their success and catalyze the adoption of digital assets.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does VDN benefit my digital asset platform business?

Digital asset business development initiatives require a sophisticated digital asset technology platform that provides a suite of services, including digital cap table management, tokenization, integration with digital service providers, and investor interfaces (UX/UI) that confirm identity and ownership. The cost of developing or licensing a digital asset platform technology is beyond the resources of most companies. VDN helps companies start or accelerate the growth of your digital asset platform business by providing access to Vertalo’s digital technology platform - without upfront development or licensing costs.


What do I pay to join VDN as a participant?

VDN’s benefits do not cost the participant any upfront fees. VDN participants sign up for access to the Vertalo platform without upfront cost for demo and business development. Upon closing revenue-producing digital business, VDN participants can enter into a preferred-price Vertalo Production licensing agreement to support their revenue-producing digital clients. VDN enables participants to successfully execute their digital business development initiatives without incurring digital asset platform costs until revenue is generated.


What is expected of me as a VDN participant?

VDN participants must make a time commitment to learn how to use and demo the Vertalo platform to clients. While the Vertalo platform is easy to use, there is no substitute for the learning process. The time you invest in mastering the Vertalo system training program (which is easy) will pay significant dividends in your business development activity. The reason is that your clients will learn to trust you as their go-to digital asset advisor and rely on the breadth of your digital asset expertise. Those who skip or short-cut the Vertalo training and education program are much less likely to become an effective voice for client adoption of digital assets.


When do I start paying for Vertalo’s services and how much do I pay?

Vertalo’s goal is to make your digital platform business into a great success. VDN participants start paying for the use of the Vertalo platform only after closing business, generating revenues and moving assets into Production on the Vertalo platform. These costs are through Vertalo’s licensing and subscription schedules.


Does VDN provide any special support to real estate providers?

Yes, Vertalo Real Estate (VRE) provides specialized expertise to real estate platforms in the secure and efficient creation, issuance, and management of digital real estate assets.
