A Glimpse at Trending Tokenization – Characteristics of exchange/security/utility tokens

Despite the downturn of the cryptocurrencies that is observed in the past year, may have caused apprehensions for aspirant cryptocurrency investor, we kept reiterating that the buzz world, ‘tokenization mechanism’ is quite distinctive. 

Symbiont, a blockchain technology company, raised by a round of funding about $20 million that has been led by Nasdaq.

The company is in the business of developing distributed ledgers and smart contracts for the capital markets’ operations. The two companies have partnered to bring compliant security tokens to the United States. That is how Nasdaq is intending to access the gamut of blockchain driven-securities.

No central authority issue ‘exchange tokens’, nor backed by them. Please be noted that these tokens are utilizable directly as a means of exchange. The security denoting “exchange tokens can be used as a means of exchange, they are not currently recognized as legal tender in the UK, and they are not considered to be a currency.” Currently, exchange tokens do not fall within the regulatory perimeter of the FCA.

Let’s us just quickly glance at the characteristics of Security Tokens that resembles the conventional financial instruments, like, shares, debentures or units in a collective investment scheme. They are identified to be scrutinized by the regulatory perimeter of the FCA as their classification meets the definition of “specified investments” per the state’s Regulated Activities Order and/or “Financial Instruments” regulated by the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II. “Tokens can be considered transferable securities under MiFID as well as Specified Investments under the RAO.”

While DE.exchange is also no exception from tokenization, they have also come up with BTC, XRP, ETH, OmiseGo (OMG), Cardano (ADA), Enigma, ShareToken, and Digibyte. Through which one can trade in companies like Facebook, Google, Apple, Netflix, Tesla, Nvidia, Amazon, Intel as well as Baidu using tokenized shares.
