Launching our Security Tokens Listing Platform

It’s been over a month since we launched securities.io, and this past month has seen more progress in the security token space than the previous year combined. More companies are launching security token offerings in order to raise capital. Meanwhile ICOs are dying a slow death, with the SEC becoming even more aggressive in cracking down on ICOs.

In the meantime even conferences are refocusing. Start Engine rebranded their biannual conference from ICO Summit 2.0 to the Start Engine Summit. In this case the entire summit catered exclusively to security tokens. The same can be seen on the Start Engine platform, less ICOs, and more STOs.

It’s not just Start Engine,  I see the same similarities in other conference in the space. More time is being devoted to STOs, ICOs are basically the left over pitches that are seen in the second half of the last day after the serious investors have gone home. ICOs are basically pitching to other ICOs.

My inbox is becoming bombarded with companies that have cancelled an ICO launch, to instead focus on launching an STO. They’ve all but given up on a utility token being used on the platform, or if there is a utility token, it’s a secondary stable token.

At securities.io we want to be more involved in the space. We initially had the mission of being a securities news platform. Now we want to go further. We want to be a listing platform that will list all security tokens. We also tell you who is powering the security token (such as Securitize.io, Polymath, Neufund, etc.) This is all in the hope of making the space more transparent.

We are also working on partnerships with different listing platforms, token issuers, and STOs, in order to make securities.io more useful.

You can expect more interviews so that you can learn about actual STO businesses. We also plan on launching a “Thought Leaders” section which will enable market leaders in the space to communicate directly with investors. This will never be to pitch specific tokens, instead it will be a venue for them to share their thoughts and how they are seeing the securities space evolve.

Lastly, we are working on launching a section called “STO Launch“. This will offer detailed information to companies who are considering launching an STO, but who are still confused about the entire process.

In the meantime you can view our new tokens listing platform.
