Blockpass Seminar – Security Tokens, 15 March, 2019 Hong Kong


The arrival of security tokens represents a huge opportunity for investors as well as enormous potential for operational efficiencies in capital markets and provides for innovation in other sector verticals too.

Some have estimated that the potential market could be worth into the trillions of dollars. New infrastructure is emerging to support the effective use of these crypto-assets including new types of exchanges, issuance platforms, funds, custodians and legal and regulatory compliance providers.

In 2019, Blockpass is launching a series of leading security token events to help educate and inform business, investors and policymakers wishing to explore this trend and to help build the community that will drive the security token ecosystem of the future. Join us for our inaugural event at Hong Kong’s Cyberport.
