Proven Blockchain Platform for Institutions

Technology Overview

AlphaPoint has developed the AlphaPoint Distributed Ledger Platform (ADLP), a general-­purpose blockchain platform, from the ground up to streamline the deployment of distributed financial applications. The platform provides firms and institutions a secure, flexible means of engaging with digital asset issuance, smart contracts, and automated workflows, and leverages all the inherent strengths of blockchain technology - single truth, distributed consensus, and cryptographic auditability.
ADLP provides a suite of plug-and-play building blocks, allowing for rapid development and deployment of secure applications with flexible consensus and permissioning systems. AlphaPoint’s solution has been deployed in production since late 2013, with three existing applications - the Asset Manager, Matching Engine, and Order Management System - handling live volumes across a variety of asset classes.

Blockchain Platform Features


The AlphaPoint Distributed Ledger Platform offers a suite of ready-made, production-tested components - including tools for risk management, external integrations, and order matching - that firms can leverage to rapidly test and deploy applications on the platform. These components are built on high-level APIs that sit on top of a secure set of proprietary libraries powering the ADLP distributed ledger.

The platform itself integrates with both existing financial infrastructure (such as FIX messages), as well as other blockchains, enabling firms to bridge the divide between existing and emerging protocols.
