About The Book
Digital Finance: Security Tokens and Unlocking the Real Potential of Blockchain examines how blockchain technology - and specifically security tokens - will overhaul the existing infrastructure of the financial services industry to increase efficiency, transparency, and security.
Security tokens are the next major milestone in this exciting digital revolution. Put simply, tokens offer investors a digitized form of a traditional ownership certificate. They provide title to a regulated financial instrument combined with the agility and speed of blockchain. As a result, tokens are inherently more easily transferable and offer more features than paper alternatives. Digital Finance explains how this advancement will impact traditional assets like stocks, real estate, bonds, intellectual property and derivatives.
The digitization of assets will challenge the methods by which projects raise capital and present investing to a wider array of people and geographies. New investment ideas, that many never would have thought possible, will be better promoted and sold effectively in the marketplace including the creation of digital vehicles to represent liquid ownership in artwork, music royalties, sports franchises, individual pieces of real estate and so much more! There are trillions of dollars of assets worldwide whose value could be transformed by the introduction of security tokens!
Readers of Digital Finance will realize why security tokens are creating huge excitement in the financial industry. By combining the latest in technology and the potential for automated world-class investor protections, regulatory compliance and customer service, security tokens offer a plethora of benefits that will drive down costs, enhance flexibility and open up opportunities for new business models and revenue streams.
In The Press
“Digital Finance was helpful in articulating questions the reader potentially didn’t know they needed to ask. Hines explains complex terms in a way that is digestible for anyone with a basic business background. The conceptual explanations were also concise and intentional; covering just what I wanted to know to have a solid understanding of a tokenized ecosystem and why there may be advantages found in decentralized finance vs. traditional lending.”
