Security Token Overview Series: Part 1

The first in a series of research memos and commentaries exploring the contexts, structures, possibilities, and limitations of security tokens.

This Smith + Crown research series intends to explore the contexts, structures, possibilities, and limitations of security tokens, through an extended series of research memos and commentaries that both analyzes existing arguments relating to securities tokens and introduces key elements of Smith + Crown’s own views of securities tokens, including the potential for them to emerge as a novel type of ‘securities plus’ vehicle able to bridge the gulf between traditional securities markets and emerging cryptocurrency markets.
