In the latest of TokenMarket's security token event series, the business has partnered with leading London law firm, Collyer Bristow. Set to take place at the Collyer Bristow offices in Holborn, London, on May 16th 2019, the event will focus on the prelude to the inevitable mass adoption of tokenised securities.

The mass adoption and regulation of tokenised securities across global jurisdictions are either being legislated on or automatically approved under pre-existing securities laws, issuing and trading guidelines.

Throughout the EU, security tokens are regulated in Europe under MiFID II. The legislation is the most important in determining what constitutes a security. Though the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has been a bit unclear on its definition of ‘transferable securities’, this classification so far has been applied to security tokens.

The event will see TokenMarket's Ryan Hanley, Managing Director of the UK, deliver a keynote outlining the world of Security Token Offerings (STO), dispelling some of the myths and highlighting the benefits that the tokenised fundraising landscape has. With vast experience in the world of tokenised and digital assets, Hanley will give an insightful and interesting talk on the effect that tokenised securities will have on traditional markets. With this, the event will also give first-time attendees the knowledge to better understand

As well as this, Hanley will also be moderating a fantastic panel focussed on one main question: how will both primary issuances and secondary market trading of tokenised securities gain mass adoption in a hegemonic centralised system which raises and trades funds? Panellists will include Nigel Brahams, Partner at Collyer Bristow, Oliver Bolton, CEO and Co-Founder of Almond and Dario Scarcella, CEO and Co-Founder of CapexMove.
