TokenMarket Meetup on Market Preparation for STOs in 2019
Dear Tokenomy Community,
TokenMarket, a premier digital advisory firm based in Europe and Tokenomy’s joint venture partner in ‘TokenMarket Asia’, held its first ever meetup in Singapore last Thursday evening. Over 100 blockchain, fintech, cryptocurrency enthusiasts and professionals gathered to participate in discussions around how the development of Security Tokens can help revolutionize the securities market.
The aforementioned meetup ‘An Introduction to Security Token Offerings’, held at the 80RR FinTech Hub, was aimed at discussing security tokens and how the industry-wide pivot from ICOs to STOs in 2018 could play the decisive role in bringing mainstream financial adoption to digital asset investments.
Lawrence Seah, Tokenomy’s Chief Strategy Officer, kick-started the session with a few comments: “Tokenizing debt, equity or assets such as real estate are capital markets products and the arranging and distributing of such regulated products are currently in the domain of the traditional players — namely investment banks. Any widespread adoption of STOs, such as what we have seen in ICOs could lead to these traditional players deciding to engage.”
“Couple this with the ongoing infrastructure developments in areas such as institutional grade custody solutions, asset management and listed derivatives in crypto, this will lead to more mainstreaming of digital currencies and assets.”
Ryan Hanley, Vice President of Business Development of TokenMarket, led the main session as the speaker and later, the panel moderator. According to Mr. Hanley, whilst the STOs are still nascent, there are ongoing developments behind the scenes, especially in the infrastructure required.
Mr. Hanley added: “However, the benefits of tokenization are clear and achievable such as buyer protection, increased transparency, cost efficiency, and simplified shareholder management.”
We were honored by the presence of four distinguished panelists in the last segment of the event — the panel titled ‘The regulatory impacts and effects of conducting STOs’. The panel analyzed the regulatory and strategic components to successfully run an STO.
During the Q&A and networking sessions following after, we were glad to hear a variety of insights and excellent viewpoints coming from the industry players and Tokenomy members.
Finally, we would like to thank the attendees for joining our eventful evening as it would not have been a success without each and every one of you. Tokenomy and TokenMarket are definitely working towards organizing more exciting talks and panels in the future.
So do look out for updates on our Tokenomy website, Medium and Social Media network!
