What Are Digitalized Tokens & Why?

Digitalization is the conversion of documents and information into electronic format stored in an unalterable, auditable, updatable format on a blockchain (secure “file cabinet”).

Tokens are digital “shares” tradeable on private or public exchanges – primary offerings or secondary trading.

The Tokens are held on behalf of the investor by a qualified/regulated institutional custodian.

All funds are held/distributed by a regulated financial institution in accordance with the investment terms.

Together they are the 21st century version of stocks, bonds, membership/partnership shares, and brokerage/investment accounts.

Tokens incorporate “smart contracts” (snippets of code) that automate an offering and associated workflow such as transfers of shares, distributions, capital table updates, etc. – with a full audit trail.

Smart Contracts are capable of handling complex structures including senior loans, A/B structures, mezzanine loans, preferred equity, GP, LPs, Members, etc.

Also, non-financial assets such as timeshares or club memberships.
