We created Tokeny Solutions in 2017 with the idea of tokenizing existing securities markets…


We are hugely excited to announce investorID, a decentralized application, allowing users to create their on-chain identity to access and trade tokenized securities. investorID identities are created by smart contracts which link the identity of an individual to their wallet. Regulations recognising blockchain are emerging all over Europe and, as an example, Luxembourg has recently recognised blockchain as a suitable infrastructure to register and transfer securities in the form of “tokens”. We are optimistic other jurisdictions will follow suit.

Issuers are obligated to respect the necessary rules and regulations to ensure compliant security token trading. Using investorID, individuals and entities…


T-REX (Token for Regulated EXchanges)

We are very excited to announce the release of the T-REX (Token for Regulated EXchanges). The purpose of T-REX is to allow for the issuance of security tokens on a blockchain infrastructure and the subsequent transfer in a compliant way, with a particular focus on KYC and AML regulations. T-REX is comprised of three key pillars, the identity management system, a set of validation certificates and the transfer manager.

Whilst attracting a lot of attention and interest, the security tokens industry is still in its infancy. The need for standardization and respect of compliance standards applying in the securities industry…


Smart contracts are the backbone of your ICO. They enable not just the minting of your new tokens, but their distribution, resale, any inflation mechanics you choose to include, equity amount, future earnings, responsibilities, and so on…

They are essentially small decentralised applications that facilitate transactions on your blockchain — open and transparent to all. As such, they provide assurances to investors that their money won’t be stolen or misused while facilitating direct transactions without the need for a middleman.

Writing your ICO smart contract is one of the most important steps in your ICO journey and you should leave…


Tokens are the most important aspect of your ICO. Often businesses running ICOs assume they can just create their tokens and begin fundraising, but that oversimplifies the matter. To avoid becoming another failed ICO statistic, you need a thorough and well-constructed token strategy before you begin your ICO.

In fact, thinking through your token strategy is such an important step, we include it as one of the key assessment criteria in our Sustainable ICO Protocol (SICOP) which we use to audit every project we run on our platform.

So, what do…


Businesses should focus on what they do best. This is a trite statement that everybody would agree with, yet many managers and executives would, in practice, waste resources on tasks and processes that take away from their company’s core competency. In today’s globally connected world, where capital is by and large free to travel and seek the most productive home, competing in your domain of expertise is more important than ever.

The need for a professional tokenization platform

For this reason, using an asset tokenization platform is becoming the de facto method to raise capital by issuing blockchain-based ownership claims. Whether issuing utility or security tokens, using…

Initial Coin Offerings offer businesses a huge range of benefits over traditional investment routes — from making floatation more cost-effective to growing a loyal fanbase. As a relatively new form of raising investment, ICOs are currently unregulated in Europe and the US. But pressure is growing on these governments to create a regulatory framework for ICOs.

Many people are wondering whether regulation would hurt or help ICOs? Let’s take a look at some of the pros and cons.

Benefits of Regulating ICOs

# Regulation provides assurances

All regulation is intended to make things safer for both businesses and investors by providing a legal means…


A proposed Certification Methodology for Initial Coin Offerings

After months of exhaustive research and community involvement our team is excited to propose the SICOP, a certification methodology for compliant Initial Coin Offerings.

As the ICO market has exploded over the last two years, it has become filled with unethical and scam based businesses. The team at Tokeny has aimed to provide a methodology to conduct successful, secure and sustainable Initial Coin Offerings by standardizing good practices and ethical rules. It will help regulators to understand the market and help ICO projects to prepare for upcoming official compliance.

Innovations always bring opportunism, with good or bad intentions. ICOs have…

By being a part of the…


Most ICOs in early 2017 were nothing more than a well-written white paper. The incredible return on investments on the majority of those projects could let us think we are in a bubble. However we think this speculation is useful because it gives a financial utility to the tokens. It’s a way to benefit from the network effect from the beginning. It basically provides time for the project leaders to develop and scale their product until they reach a strong market fit and a real application utility for their tokens. …
