Blockchain STO Summit

Venue: Caudan Art Centre, Port-Louis Mauritius

About The Event

Event Overview

Mauritius is aiming to become a Fintech Hub and an investment gateway for Africa with its strategic location and has been ranked 1st again in Africa on the ease of doing business Index 2019. On Monday 8th April 2019, the Financial Services Commission of Mauritius has issued a New Guidance on Security Token Offerings and new rules and regulations for Digital assets Custodian services which is effective since the 1st March 2019. This goes without saying that Mauritius is going in the right direction to enable worldwide players in the Fintech and Blockchain space to operate within a legal framework. It is to be noted that the Government of Mauritius has created the Mauritius Africa Fintech Hub to develop the Fintech ecosystem and encourage collaboration amongst players throughout the whole African continent. Following the downfall of the ICO market during the recent years, we have seen that STO is on the rise at the moment. Unlike ICOs, however, security tokens are backed by real assets – whether equity, debts/loans, or investment funds, for example – similar to more traditional securities. As such, security tokens fall within existing securities laws and regulations. At World Blockchain STO Summit special focus will be given to understanding what “STOs” (securitized token offerings) and other classes of emerging technology and alternative investment instruments are and how they can be leveraged to generate value and profit.

In this summit, we will explore how STO's are a better choice for businesses looking to raise capital because they offer unique advantages such as low barrier of entry, fractional ownership and access to global investors.
