Description and disclaimer

Below you will find a list of Security/Equity Token Offerings (STOs/ETOs). I was surprised that no comprehensive list existed off-the-shelf. Hopefully, someone finds my list useful. Please share names of STOs missing from my list in the comments, so I can update this article. Thanks.

Takeaways

So far, it seems that only cryptoasset infrastructure companies (e.g., tZero), blockchain funds (e.g., Blockchain Capital and Science Blockchain), and tokenized real estate (e.g., St. Regis Aspen Resort) have received significant attention and demand from investors.

There are now also other types of offerings in the pipeline, including traditional companies looking to tokenize their equity. However, the following factors seem to be limiting demand today:

  • There are few (no?) STO success cases of non-blockchain/crypto companies, yet.

Thus, the STO fundraising performance of non-crypto companies in the current climate is yet to be seen. However, the situation might change quickly, depending on how fast the infrastructure develops and how regulators play along.
