  • Unlock liquidity from crypto markets
  • Open new distribution channels
  • Shorten inventory turnover time
  • Fetch potentially higher valuation
  • Enhance marketing and brand image
For businesses with a lot of users / ecosystem activities / network effect:
  • Upgrade legacy payment systems
  • Upgrade legacy gift card systems
  • Upgrade legacy loyalty programs
  • Increase sales and reduce costs
  • Enhance marketing and brand image

HOW Do We Tokenize?

WHERE Should We Tokenize?

For businesses that are looking to launch stablecoins / convertible virtual currencies / commodity-backed tokens:
  • Many countries require a payments license to issue virtual currencies
  • The US is a jurisdiction where you can legally issue stablecoins and commodity tokens as convertible virtual currencies
  • Avoid certain jurisdictions that may also treat pooled commodities as securities
For businesses that are looking to launch real estate / security tokens:
  • Only do so in jurisdictions that legally support blockchain-based securities to limit legal risks
  • In many jurisdictions, security tokens can only be traded / transferred on regulated networks
  • In the US, security tokens must be registered with the SEC and can only trade on regulated ATS platforms (e.g. tZERO, SharePost)

WHEN Can We Tokenize?

For businesses that are looking to launch stablecoins / convertible virtual currencies / commodity-backed tokens:
  • NOW is a great time to launch your project
  • There are many precedents of stablecoins, CVCs and commodity tokens being issued compliantly by companies based in the US
For businesses that are looking to launch real estate / security tokens:
  • It is NOT a good time to launch your project in heavily regulated jurisdictions such as the US due to higher costs and lower liquidity
  • It is POTENTIALLY a good time to launch your project offshore in either unregulated or less heavily-regulated jurisdictions due to bullish crypto market valuations. If so then users from the US, EU and certain other high-risk jurisdictions must be blacklisted and you cannot market your products and services in those regions
