FOUNDER’S MESSAGE

In the 90’s, the Internet revolutionized the world by re-inventing information, media and telecommunication and media inclusion to the world. People could enjoy and benefit from easy access to digital communication, information, media, entertainment, education, social media, at their fingertips, as it never been happened in history before. Now, another revolution is happening, with momentum at times stronger than the Internet wave. Blockchain will re-invent the financial industry through distributed ledger technologies and brings wealth and status inclusion to the world by further diminishing the boundaries among nations and connecting isolated economies. I am very fortunate to have experienced the Internet revolution in the early days of my career, and extremely grateful to be part of the Blockchain revolution now, and to be able to contribute my previous professional experience to help to bring a better future to humanity; through technology, collaboration between communities, and meeting of minds globally.

What is a Utility Token?

 

Utility tokens are simply app coins or user tokens. They enable future access to the products or services offered by a company. Therefore, utility tokens are not created to be an investment.

 

Just like an electronics dealer might accept orders for a video game that will be released several months later, a startup can create utility tokens and sell digital coupons for the services or products it is developing.

What is a Security Token?

 

A security token is a digital asset that derives its value from an external asset that can be traded. Therefore, these tokens are subject to federal laws that govern securities. Failure to comply with these regulations could result in severe consequences including penalties and potential derailment of the development of a project.

 

Security tokens can offer a vast array of applications if the startup abides by all the regulatory requirements. The most promising of these features is the ability to offer tokens as a digital representation of shares of a company’s stock.
