We study and develop an automated platform for shareholder rights
management using Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), in collaboration
with an equity crowdfunding company. DLT has high
impact potential for the multi-agent systems domain, as it allows
participants to agree on the values of shared variables and keep
a history of how the values change over time. DLT also enables
participants to know that the shared values are common knowledge.
In our application, the shared variables that the agents agree on are
the shareholder rights. Knowing that there is common agreement
on these rights allows us to develop related applications, such as
a shareholder voting system. In this paper, we discuss the shareholder
rights management platform and briefly mention a related
shareholder voting system, both currently under development.
