Tokenized securities are a version of digital ownership governed by smart contracts for any variety of public or private equities, debt, real estate, fractional ownership or other assets. Because of this, many jurisdictions are deeming these types of tokens as securities under existing classifications and regulations.
Most famously, the U.S. SEC declaring that in its opinion, almost all tokens would be classified as securities under its definition.
Thanks to equity crowdfunding rules, an increasingly popular way for startups and SMEs to raise funds are Security Token Offerings, also known as Digital Security Offerings.
Trans Block Digital, through its alternative investment platform and broker-dealer partners, will offer unparalleled access to public funding to SMEs in Canada and the United States.
