As digital tokens issued for fundraising purposes have come under increasing scrutiny from securities regulators and other government authorities in the United States and around the world, projects are embracing classification of digital tokens as securities. These digital tokens have been commonly referred to as “security tokens” and an offering to investors of the tokens as a security token offering (“STO”).
Today, a growing number of blockchain companies are planning and launching legally compliant security tokens that look increasingly like traditional investments. In addition, conventional businesses are embracing issuance of security tokens as a financing alternative, especially in light of the growing secondary market for such instrument, with platforms like OpenFinance, t0, SharesPost, , and others going live.
However, these companies are discovering that successfully launching an STO and later listing such security token on a regulated trading platform is a complex undertaking that requires careful consideration of a wide array of practical, technical and legal aspects.
Please join our partners, Max Dilendorf and Rika Khurdayan as they take a deep dive into structuring, launching and listing a security token in compliance with US regulations.
This workshop will cover:
selecting appropriate jurisdiction for security token issuance
setting up corporate structure and governance suitable for issuing security tokens
security token formats and features (tokenomics)
preparing necessary documentation for launching STO
working with service providers to complete STO
listing your security token on regulated trading platforms
timeline for STO from start to finish
live Q&A session (30 mins)
The workshop will also dissect 3 STO case studies:
Case Study: Profit Sharing Token
Case Study: Tokenized Equity of non-US company offered to US investors
Case Study: Tokenized Equity through US SPV
Program Duration: 2 hours
BONUS: Following the workshop, all attendees will receive Project Evaluation Checklist and, upon completion, will be offered to schedule a free 30 mins consultation to discuss the project and contemplated STO.
