Thinking of investing in cryptocurrency in 2019? Get the best STO to invest/best ICO to invest in here.
A new terminology was recently introduced into the cryptocurrency industry – STO! While most people are familiar with ICO, STO is the new baby born into the crypto family.
In 2017, ICO saw tremendous growth. According to a joint report from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and Swiss Crypto Valley Association, about $14 billion was raised for ICOs in 2017 alone. By mid-2018, the volume had doubled.
Soon, the crypto market became infiltrated by scam ICO projects that never delivered. Investors became worried, and regulators are uncomfortable with how things turned out. With STO, such scams will become almost impossible. With the present crypto atmosphere, 2019 looks bright for STOs. But then, what is STO?
What is STO?
STO stands for Security Token Offering. It is the emerging alternative to private and venture capital financing for companies globally. Although STO and ICO share some similarities, the main difference is that STOs are tied to real securities in the form of token assets.
Unlike ICO with utility token offering, STO is the sale of security token itself. In simple terms, STO = Security + ICO.
Advantages of STO
As predicted, the growth of STO would shoot up to $10 trillion by 2024. That is huge! Compared to other security tokens, STO issuance is much cheaper because it is operated on decentralized markets. Thus, STOs attract lower fees such as legal and accountancy fees, among other costs.
Platinum experts state that STO is crucial for companies that intend to tokenize their equities by developing smart contracts based on the blockchain platform. Here are more of the benefits of STOs;
Legality if one of the benefits of STOs. For security tokens, transparency and regulation is no longer the issue, especially for people that deal with security. Security tokens are regulated financial securities, the same way as stocks are.
Functionality is the second benefit of STOs. While the traditional utility tokens cannot function as securities, security tokens CAN function as utilities. This means that with the help of smart contracts, issuers can choose to use the security tokens as a payment method on their platform, network gateway, voting rights, loyalty programs and more.
Liquidity allows issuers to take control to create more liquidities with security tokens. Platinum experts think that this will allow international investors to get involved and security tokens can be listed on exchanges without hassle.
Uniformity in the way of verifying and tracking of data is part of what makes the blockchain unique. Platinum experts state that blockchain prevents tampering due to immutability. In this way, ownership documentation can be securely done and in a transparent way. It becomes easy to perform auditing and as such, it will curb fraudulent transactions, mispricing, manipulation, and corruption in financial institutions.
