NORTHMARK VENTURES Why Tokenize Your Real World Assets?

Abstract: In the wake of the the Initial Coin Offering (ICO) craziness of 2017, Security Tokens are emerging as the likely next big thing in the blockchain world. A security token uses blockchain technology to establish, record and manage ownership of real-world assets such as real-estate, corporate loans, corporate equity, industrial machinery and many other asset classes. This connection with “traditional” assets makes this space fundamentally different from past Initial Coin Offerings, many of which which offered investors little or no call on anything of intrinsic value. As an asset owner, why would you possibly want to “securitize” your asset using blockchain technology? What benefits are potentially available, and why take the risk of managing your asset on the blockchain versus the tried and true “filing cabinet” method that’s been around forever. This talk will introduce a list of potential benefits associated with Security Tokens and discuss the associated costs and risks of using this new approach.
