The OTCQB is a securities market listing aimed specifically at early-stage and developing companies – startups, in other words. The OTCQX, meanwhile, is for more established firms, with OTC Markets describing it on its website as a securities exchange listing for which “companies must meet high financial standards, follow best practice corporate governance, demonstrate compliance with U.S. securities laws, be current in their disclosure, and have a professional third-party sponsor introduction.”

Ipsidy’s move to the OTCQX is thus a credit to the biometric identity technology specialist, which launched a new mobile authentication app based on facial recognition earlier this month. In a statement announcing the development, Ipsidy CEO and Chairman Philip Beck emphasized the market’s status as an “established public market” in the eyes of the SEC, asserting that “this upgrade is a significant milestone for Ipsidy and we believe a step towards increasing the liquidity of our stock.”

Ipsidy is now trading on the OTCQX under the symbol “IDTY”, with US investors able to obtain Real-Time Level 2 quotes from the OTC Markets website.
