The electronic platform for attraction of capital to dynamically developing companies of the Russian Far East was created in 2016 by the Financial Market Players Association “Non-commercial Partnership of RTS” with the participation of the Far East Development Fund (FEDF).
The platform is functioning without any financial participation of FEDF as a purely market mechanism. The companies use Voskhod to attract rather small amounts of financing.
The prospects for development of the investment system are connected with application of new financial technologies, inter alia, centered around distributed databases (blockchains). Some new services based on these technologies, such as trading in the new-generation investment assets and cryptoassets (bitcoin etc.), will be launched on Voskhod in the near future.
