What is an STO platform?

Security token offerings, or STOs, are a blockchain-tokenised asset that denotes a portion of ownership in the resource, object, asset, or company which they represent. STOs are considered as an official investment contract—but instead of having a traditional digital certificate, the investment contract is recorded on a blockchain network, and issued as a security token offering.

So they’re essentially a share in the business, built and traded on a blockchain network.

An STO exchange platform is the medium through which your STO gets managed, traded, and exchanged.

The staggering potential for STO

Security token offerings are ground-breaking in the cryptocurrency sphere, as they provide investors with tangible legal contracts and rights, while functioning as real financial products.

An STO acts as a safe, secure way to gain investment interest and raise capital for businesses. Think of it as a digital-savvy alternative to private equity, one that exists in a secure, decentralised system. And as the tokens generated by an STO represent regulated financial products, they’re supported by the revenue and assets of the token-holder, giving investors more confidence than ever before.

The benefits of an STO platform

Legally sound tokens

Security token offerings are considered legal financial products, and provide much more security than an ICO when planning to raise funds.

Complete transparency

The blockchain protocol on which your STO is built provides a clear, accurate, immutable audit trail, acting as one source of truth for your users.

Uncompromised security

STOs operate under multiple layers of encrypted security, providing a completely safe platform on which to trade and exchange.

How STO platforms can be used

Security token offering platforms can be used in a wide range of industries and applications.

Art

Art tokenisation is changing the nature of art investment. Tokenisation allows platforms like galleries, or the artists themselves, to offer token-based ownership on works of art. These tokens act as shares, or portions of ownership of the artwork, which can then change in value as the artwork does.

Mining

New mining ventures are primed for tokenisation. Mining companies looking to raise capital for their new ventures can develop an STO based on the future potential of their mine, which opens up the gates for many more investors to get on board. This opens up a new digital future of commodities trading.

Investment

STO is bringing more power into the hands of investors. Tokenisation of investments gives users more autonomy, and enables them to manage their investment funds in a more efficient way. By bypassing the traditional intermediaries involved, STO adds a greater element of liquidity to investments.

Real estate

The tokenisation of assets has been a game-changer for the real estate industry. It enables real estate assets to be divided into tokenised portions, removing the traditionally high barriers to entry, and allowing more investors to come on board. Tokens can be traded directly between investors, cutting out the middleman, and streamlining the process.

Stablecoins

Stablecoins are cryptocurrencies whose value is derived from stable assets, like gold or currencies, rather than fiat money. The stablecoin then locks in the price of the currency, meaning it avoids the volatility of the market, and increases stability of the coin. Stablecoin has the potential to create official currency-backed STOs. Blockchain Australia™ are currently in the process of proposing Australia’s first stablecoin—so watch this space.

Antiques

Security token offerings bring a breath of fresh air to the world of antiques. The tokenisation of antique items allows for fractional ownership, enabling token-holders to diversify their investment prospects, and empowering more investors to come on board where traditionally they wouldn’t be able to. It also allows for direction transactions between investors, rather than going through an intermediary.

Frequently asked questions

There are three big benefits to blockchain technology.

Security

The data contained within each block in a blockchain network data is stored on computers and servers distributed all over the world, and only people on that network can access that data. For a transaction to be considered as a valid record, all nodes in the network must agree that it’s valid. So for a hacker to take control of a blockchain network, they would need to have control of at least 51% of all the computers within the network, which makes it exceedingly hard to hack.

Efficiency

The transparency of blockchain technology means you can see and access data at every point in a transaction. Whatever the transaction occurring, this means businesses can clearly identify any errors in their processes, and fix them practically in real time. As a peer-to-peer system, it cuts out any intermediary interactions, speeding up the transfer of information. And, as blockchain is built on code, this means that businesses can create automated processes that remove the need for manual input, removing any human error, and speeding up processing time even further.

Integrity

The transparency and traceability of blockchain enables businesses to clearly demonstrate where their products are coming from. It allows transactions to be made safely and securely between users, without any third parties getting in the way. As such, it can effectively eliminate fraud, as every action and process is documented clearly, from start to finish.
