Security Tokens Represent Over $18.6 Billion In Value As New Players Enter The Market

Security tokens continue to play an increasing role of importance. Tokenizing securities has proven a viable business approach for many companies. With a market cap of over $18.6 billion, big players are now entering the market at an accelerating rate.

More Security Tokens Than Ever

The first metric to keep tabs on is the overall growth of the security tokens market. It appeared as if only a handful of companies wanted to take the plunge and see if it was a worthwhile endeavor. Eventually, the industry began attracting some more exotic versions – such as a whisky fund – confirming there is merit to STOs. 

Today, the industry represents a market cap of over $18.6 billion. However, a lot has changed in recent months, primarily due to more security token offerings becoming accessible. In fact, there are roughly 200 offerings tracked on STOMarket, which is a relatively healthy sign.

The big new entrants include Enegra Group ($15.1 billion market cap) and Dignity Gold ($2.856 billion market cap). These are the only two projects to surpass $150 million in market capitalization, with Blockchain Capital being the only other project exceeding $100 million. Established players like tZERo, INX Limited, and SPiCE VC are still around, confirming the STO market is healthy and growing.

Furthermore, there are more exchanges where one can trade these security tokens. Platforms like BigONE, CryptoSX, Securitize Markets, tZERO, XT, INX Securities, and ERX all compete for traction. Broader accessibility and availability will bring more attention to the STO industry and give everyone a better chance of making potential future-proof investments. 

What About Tokenized Stocks?

Another industry tracked by STOMarket focuses on tokenized stocks. Although one can trade these vehicles across crypto exchanges like FTX, they do not always generate too much attention. It is worth noting DeFiChain lets users mint decentralized assets which may be tied to stocks, even if they do not automatically follow that asset´s price. Even so, tokenized stocks represent a market cap of over $2.2 million, with TSLA-FTX generating the most volume.

Both tokenized stocks and security tokens seem to be going through a growth phase. That growth is far less outspoken for tokenized stocks, although things can always change for the better. Security tokens have genuinely token off and attracted tremendous interest, with more – and bigger – players entering the market in recent months.

(星島日報報道)不少企業會面對融資困難問題,數位資產交易所Cryptosx創辦人譚百賢(見圖)表示,透過證券型代幣發行(STO)將可大幅減低融資成本及難度,有別於通過IPO吸納傳統投資者,STO有助吸引來自世界各地的加密貨幣投資者,突破國際界限。  譚百賢引述普華永道(PWC)數據指,IPO成本約為集資資本的3.5%至7%,如企業集資1億美元,成本最少需要350萬美元,形容IPO融資成本高昂,STO成本則相對較低,約為200萬至500萬元。他透露,目前於Cryptosx進行STO的公司一般暫未有能力進行IPO,但卻亦非初創,認為這些企業相對適合同STO融資。他指出,STO定位在IPO之下,一般企業進行STO後,下一步很大機會再進行IPO上市,形容STO為IPO的「前期訓練」。他又指,二者的分別在於,IPO是在傳統交易所集資,而STO則是於加密貨幣市場中集資,而兩者皆有相應的監管及認可。  除融資成本較低外,譚百賢指,STO有助吸引更多來自加密貨幣市場,以及不同國家的投資者,「一個美國人想要買香港的IPO不是做不到,但會很麻煩,而STO則可以打破這個限制。」  通過STO融資屬較新的做法,譚百賢認為仍處於教育階段,愈來愈多企業希望接觸STO融資。Cryptosx由2019年至今已為7家企業進行STO,預料至今年底就有12個STO完成批核,形容近年STO增長速度迅速。他透露,公司有逾一半收入來自STO,當中包括上市費、交易費等。  亨泰消費品(197)早前以2876萬元股份代價收購Cryptosx 17.5%股權。亨泰首席投資及企業關係總監朱怡捷指,是次收購有助分散傳統貿易業務風險,避免完全依賴本業,又認為一旦傳統貿易市場逆轉將導致經營風險上升。她指公司會先專注區塊鏈技術研究,下一步才謹慎考慮會否投資加密貨幣相關領域。
