Security token offerings (STO) emerged when initial coin offerings were shunned in the year 2018. Demand for security token offering development companies has increased because security tokens are a highly secure, simple, and legitimate form of investment. Raising capital through security tokens solve decentralization and capital investment-related issues. Let’s explore the benefits STO provides to businesses –
Fully Traceable and Transparent
Security tokens are designed and offered with regulatory compliance. Registered under the SEC, STO provides investors access to company information like assets state, management structure, risk of investors, and financial results. It enables investors to conduct their own investigation and verify efficiency, professionalism, and fairness of the issuing company. Transparency enables investors to sensibly invest capital and avoid frauds and inefficiencies. It enables stakeholders to trace who and for how long they owned the tokens.
Reduce the Cost of Public Offering
Security token offerings automatically raise capital using blockchain technology to eliminate the need for a middleman. Fraudulent intermediaries maintain their own ledger of data and confuse issuer and investors by presenting ledgers that differ quite substantially. Intermediaries charge an expensive amount which directly increases the operational cost of raising capital. STO uses smart contracts to simplify and automate the processes. It enables issuers to directly offer shares to investors, making the entire process transparent, immutable and accurate.
