Managing new investments

After an investment has been created by an investor in the online investment process or imported via the API, there are certain actions that need to be performed in order for the investment to settle:
  • Accept the investment
  • Mark the investment as paid
  • Credit the digital securities

Accept the investment

After the successful investor onboarding process, Cashlink Studio notifies you via email that a new investment offer was placed. You can either accept or reject the investment offer. If there is more than one investment ready for approval you can use the batch approval function. Just click on the button on the top right of the table. You will be asked for confirmation. After confirmation, all offers will be accepted.
After the investment offer has been accepted, the investor is notified via email along with all signed documents. If the offer is rejected the investor is also notified via email.

Mark the investment as paid

Cashlink will notify investors when you as the issuer have accepted the offer.
The notification will include all documents signed by the investor in PDF format. Investors will also be notified to revisit the investment process in order to view the payment details for the investment.
We don't send payment details such as your IBAN to investors via email. This would impose the risk of phishing attacks as emails can be easily manipulated and investors may receive fake payment notifications.
After you have received the payment on your bank account, please use the Cashlink Studio to mark the payment as settled. You can also use the batch confirmation process to mark all payments as settled.

Supported payment methods

Payment method
SEPA credit transfer

Credit the digital assets

The last step of the process requires you to transfer the investors purchased digital securities to their account. How this is done depends on the setup of the digital security. A digital security can either be set up in client mode or in managed mode.

Managed mode

Crediting digital securities in managed mode is very simple. Just click on the "Credit digital securities" button on the "Credit digital securities" view within the Cashlink Studio. You'll confirm this action with a second click.

Client mode


Please make sure that the following prerequisites are met. Otherwise, you might not be able to complete the process:
  • You have set up your Ledger Nano S device. If not have a look into the setup guide.
  • Your wallet has sufficient Ether credit to pay the transaction fees (currently approx. 0.005 ETH for 10 issues).

Initiate the issuance process

If these requirements are met, you will see a button on the right for the particular investment. Click on this button with the label "Send digital securities to investor":
The software now searches for your connected Ledger Nano S. Connect the Ledger Nano S to the computer:
Enter your PIN-code on the Ledger Nano S and navigate to the Ethereum app. The software will now recognize your wallet and perform a security check.

Commit the issuance transaction

Now check the number of securities and the investor's address. The transactions cannot be reversed after sending them.
In the background simultaneously, we check that the investment has gone through, and the investor provided a valid address.
Click the button "Send digital securities":
The transaction will now be sent to the Ethereum network. You can check the status of the transaction at any time.
The digital securities have been credited to the investor's account as soon as this status indicates "Success":

Complete the deployment setup (if this is your first issuance)

If this is your first interaction with your token smart contract, you will need to confirm that this token smart contract is yours. Click on the "Complete token setup" button to do this:
Check the data of your token again and then click on "Complete setup":
replace with english version
You can check the status of the transaction through our service provider Etherscan. Wait until the transaction has been completed successfully. Then click on "Back to the crediting of the securities".
First, please make sure that the device is connected to your Laptop, you have unlocked the device with your PIN and you have entered the installed Ethereum Application on the Ledger Device.
If this is the case, check if the setting "Contract Data" is set to "Yes" on your Ledger Nano S:
  1. 1.
    Open the Ethereum app on the Nano S ledger.
  2. 2.
    Go to "Settings" (left and right button to scroll, both at the same time to confirm)
  3. 3.
    Continue to "Contract Data" (again left and right button to scroll and confirm both at the same time)
  4. 4.
    Scroll to "Yes" and confirm with both buttons simultaneously.
  5. 5.
    You will then automatically exit the menu item "Contract Data" and find yourself again in the settings.
This may also be necessary after you have updated the Ledger device or the Ethereum application.
Some Windows versions did not support the use of the Ledger device. These issues should be fixed by now. If you are experiencing problems try to update the Ledger device as well as the Ethereum app. You may then need to enable contract data again (see above).
