The usual questions.
How do I make an investment?
To start investing on STAX, you’ll first need to sign up as a member (don’t worry, it doesn’t take long). When you’re ready to start investing, check out our mix of equity crowdfunding (CSF) and IPO campaigns. Once you’ve found a company you like, you can flip through the Offer Document or Prospectus, learn about the risks, and make an investment online. Unlike other platforms, STAX lets you invest in either FIAT currency (Aussie dollars) or digital currencies (like USDT).
What happens to my money?
When you buy equity in a company (either through CSF or IPO) you’ll receive a tokenised share that’s managed on the blockchain (coming 2021). This is your stake in the company.
Am I eligible to invest?
When do I see a return?
Equity Crowdfunding is a long-term commitment. You’re banking on your chosen company becoming successful a few years down the track. Not tomorrow afternoon.
If you’ve invested in a CSF opportunity, you will need to wait for the company to go public (and sell your shares on the stock exchange) or wait for a buy-out (where another company may acquire your shares). In some circumstances, you may also be able to sell your shares privately (back to the company itself or to another investor), but only if both parties agree.
If you’ve backed an IPO, you’ll be able to sell your shares when the company lists. This can be done on STAX Trade (coming 2021).
