t0 (or tzero) is a distributed ledger platform for capital markets. It is a majority owned subsidiary of Overstock.com. The company's goal is to bring greater efficiency and transparency to capital markets through the integration of blockchain technology.

History

On June 5, 2015, Overstock announced it would offer the “world's first cryptosecurity,” on its new t0 platform. The name t0 comes from the Wall Street jargon for bond settlements, which typically take three days (“t + 3”) to finalize. According to company statements, bond trades on t0 settle the same day.[1]
