What are Digital Securities?

A digital security is a digital asset that is subject to securities regulations. Digital securities serve as the intersection of digital assets with traditional financial products. They can be backed by real assets such as Real Estate or commodities but also financial assets such as equity or debt.

As opposed to traditional securities ownership which may be recorded in paper documents or computer files, digital securities are safely stored on the blockchain which brings a series of advantages:

Increased liquidity: Digital securities will be are tradable on the secondary market at any time on regulated platforms and peer to peer around the world. Trades are no longer tied to traditional trading hours – trading will be open 24/7/365.

More inclusive: It is more cost effective to issue and manage digital securities than it is for traditional securities. This means smaller investments are possible and a wider range of investors can access opportunities that used to be reserved exclusively to institutional investors and high net worth individuals.

Lower Costs: Issuance and trade execution are disintermediated, removing the costs of middlemen. Furthermore, digital contracts will help lower costs even more by removing the middle and back officers who have historically been needed to deal with securities lifecycle events.

Automated compliance: Embedded code in digital Contracts allows regulatory compliance to be automated. This leads to automated KYC (Know Your Customer) and AML (Anti-Money Laundering) completion and, ultimately, faster deal execution. In addition, because digital securities are registered on a distributed ledger, there is no need for conventional clearinghouses.
