Our financial system is on the verge of a massive transformation - blockchain technology is the solution to spearhead the next generation of financial market infrastructure (and many are calling blockchain the most important innovation since the internet!). While most people are aware of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, few realize the far greater potential of blockchain. Today, we are seeing the advent of a new financial vehicle: the security token, a digital investment product which represents ownership of real-world assets that are based on the blockchain. This advancement will have widespread ramifications for mainstream assets like fiat currencies, stocks, bonds, private securities, and so much more. Almost anything of value – be it real estate, commodities, art, intellectual properties or just about anything else – can be used to back a security token.
Speaker Baxter Hines - author of the best-selling book “Digital Finance: Security Tokens and Unlocking the Real Potential of Blockchain”- will discuss how digital assets and security tokens are going to be a major factor in the future of capital markets and will represent the first new asset structure in roughly 30 years! This new technological breakthrough will have a profound impact on the way we trade securities, how shares are maintained throughout their life cycle and even influence the ways we invest our money. This innovative process opens up the possibility of unlocking trillions of dollars in assets to new investment!
