Security Token Offerings (STOs)

A security token represents the ownership information of the investment product recorded on a blockchain. The intention of an STO is to offer an investment contract under securities law. When you invest in traditional stocks, for example, ownership information is written on a document and issused as a digital certificate. For STOs, it’s the same process, but recorded on a blockchain and issued as a token.

STOs allows for fractional ownership of an underlying asset and the ability to trade 24/7 brings in additional liquidity to the market. STOs have to comply with securities law, hence enforcing transparency and accountability. Smart contracts reduce the reliance on lawyers, while blockchain reduces the need for paperwork, making it a lot cheaper than traditional IPOs.
