STO The Next ICO
In 2017 ICO startups raised $5.6 billion. That’s no small feat. But, compared to the trillions in securities that will migrate over, $5.6 billion seems like nothing.
In a traditional ICO, tokens or coins are offered by companies for purchase as a form of crowdfunding. But, you won’t be buying shares, instead you are buying an entry to their product or services. That is where Security Token Offering(STO) comes in.
To participate in a Security Token Offering is very similar to participating in an ICO. You can purchase tokens during the offering that you can then trade, sell, or hold. However, since security tokens are actual financial securities, your tokens are backed by something tangible like the assets, profits, or revenue of the company.
The time is now ripe for security tokens!
