Security Token Show: #21 - Token Price Transparency

December 3, 2019

Tune in to this episode of the Security Token Show where Kyle Sonlin and Herwig Konings discuss the latest Security Token News and Insights with this week's focus on market transparency.

Liquidity is one of the core value propositions of Security Tokens. Even though we now have a financial technology that makes the transfer of ownership more efficient and easier, it doesn’t mean that alone will create liquidity. For that, we need active markets and for active markets to emerge, we need strong price discovery and transparency for investors - we’ll discuss the topic in more detail with a big announcement later in the episode.

Security Token Show: #20 - Fractionalized Real Estate

Security Token Show: #20 - Fractionalized Real Estate

November 19, 2019

Tune in to this episode of the Security Token Show where Kyle Sonlin and Herwig Konings discuss the latest Security Token News and Insights with this week's focus on fractional ownership!

Real estate is a hot topic in the security token space. With the asset class being an incredibly popular investment opportunity both domestically and internationally, the idea that real estate developers can fractionalize their ownership and that real estate can be distributed across hundreds or thousands of investors is revolutionary. Today, we’re going to dissect exactly why that is.

Security Token Show: #13 - Custody for Security Tokens

September 24, 2019

Tune in to this episode of the Security Token Show where Kyle Sonlin and Herwig Konings discuss the latest Security Token News and Insights with this week's focus on custody for security tokens.

As we have discussed extensively throughout these podcast episodes, security tokens are defined as a digital representation of ownership in real-world assets. This is represented as a token that has legally-binding ownership rights to the underlying asset. Today we’ll get into how custodians will manage asset ownership on an institutional scale, and what is required to manage ownership in a digital token that has been originated on the blockchain.
