Security Token Future

ICORating, Cyberport and Hashgard

In June 2018, major regulators declared most coins to be securities, meaning issuers must register and comply with federal laws - as must platforms that handle trading. This is a good way for traditional financial institutes to join the blockchain market and make it more honest and transparent. GITA, QHIBEC, ICORating, Cyberport and Hashgard together present the first global conference on the future of Security Tokens. Specialists in financial engineering, representatives of security token exchanges , regulators, investors and start-ups who have already successfully placed security tokens will tell you what to expect from this new sphere and how the world will change as a result of regulation. All guests will be treated to a complementary lunch.

美國證監會 將加密貨幣劃分為兩類:應用類通證(Utility token)和證券類通證(Security token)。應用類通證大多都是企業針對自己提供的服務或者產品為項目募資而發行的。一般來說,這類通證發行活動某種程度上類似於產品或服務預售。

而證券類通證通常是有真實資產作為支持的,例如資產權益,有限責任公司股份,或者大宗商品等。證券類通證可以用來支付股息、分享利潤、支付利息或者投資其它通證或資產,為通證持有人創造利潤。證券類通證的適用領域非常廣闊,比如封閉私募基金、房地產、債券等等。 與應用類通證不同,證券類通證需要接受當地相關機構的監管與保護。發行證券類通證的機構將受到法律的約束,相關通證需要在證監會註冊,並需遵守證券法的種種規定。

區塊鏈發展的下一波是證券類通證。全球領先的公司及專家,將會在香港的國際會議與大家分享 STO (Security Token Offering) 的未來發展機遇!
