NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Security Token Academy, an organization focused on the security token industry, announces that tickets are now available for its Security Token Industry Launch Event. The multi-day event in New York City on October 4-5 will both celebrate the emergence of the security token industry and explore the core foundations of the industry.
Security tokens will enable a generation of post-ICO, crypto-based fundraising, and be used to tokenize trillions of dollars in global assets including real estate, debt, equity and many other asset classes. Security tokens will become an important method for businesses and entrepreneurs to raise capital. Leading experts in the field are also predicting a rise in security token trading organizations, which offers investors increased liquidity in tokenized assets.
The security token launch event will bring together security token leaders, experts and enthusiasts, including former Vice Chairman of Nasdaq David Weild, creator of the ERC20 standard token and Ethereum developer Fabian Vogelsteller, and more. Panel discussions will explore the core foundations of the security token industry, including increased regulations on tokens, blockchain technology, and more around how these tokens will disrupt the financial industry.
The agenda for the Security Token Industry Launch Event includes:
- October 4: Celebratory cruise on the Spirit of New York yacht where conference attendees will network with each other while sailing on the Hudson River past the Statue of Liberty and other iconic NYC sites.
- October 5: The Security Token Academy joins together with industry leaders to ring the opening bell for the industry at the Conrad NYC. Keynote speakers and panel discussions with experts and leaders will take place during the day, along with networking opportunities during breakfast, lunch and an early-evening reception.
“With many security token trading organizations launching operations in 2018 and 2019, we are declaring October 2018 as the official launch of this exciting new industry in the United States,” said Aubrey Chernick, founder of the Security Token Academy. “On Wall Street, the opening bell rings every weekday morning, but for the emerging security token exchanges and organizations that will run constantly, that bell will only ring once, so we’re inviting passionate security token enthusiasts to join us as we officially launch the industry.”
Merrill Lynch Private Banking & Investment Group, a division of Merrill Lynch, a Bank of America Corporation, is the lead sponsor of the October event. Tickets for the Security Token Industry Launch Event are available for purchase at https://bit.ly/2LJ1U4T
