Expert Shares Insights on Security Tokens
Stephen McKeon joined us to talk about security tokens. As the chief strategy advisor for Security Token Academy, he is an expert in the issuance of security tokens.
Stephen explains that security tokens are digital securities, built on blockchain technology.
The advantages of security tokens include the ability to trade them more efficiently than traditional securities because they incorporate security, including a universally accepted record of ownership such that even after lots of trading, everyone agrees on who owns the securities.
The market around security tokens really only began to develop about two years ago but it is accelerating quickly now as the use case for blockchain technology for trading securities really works.
