This document presents a functional description of a purely peer to peer version of the financial markets. The idea being to demonstrate the feasibility of trading financial instruments using blockchain technology, we will start by exploring the case of equity like assets before extending the scope to more complex products in coming publications. More than a simple distributed system to transfer cash, assets and investments risks, the solution will focus on preserving market integrity, security and privacy. This publication is hopefully the first of a series of articles and will only deal with the case of cash equity or shares trading.
