The Security Token Academy, an organization focused on the security
token industry, announces that tickets are now available for its Security
Token Industry Launch Event
. The multi-day event in New York City on
October 4-5 will both celebrate the emergence of the security token
industry and explore the core foundations of the industry.

Security tokens will enable a generation of post-ICO, crypto-based
fundraising, and be used to tokenize trillions of dollars in global
assets including real estate, debt, equity and many other asset classes.
Security tokens will become an important method for businesses and
entrepreneurs to raise capital. Leading experts in the field are also
predicting a rise in security token trading organizations, which offers
investors increased liquidity in tokenized assets.

The security token launch event will bring together security token
leaders, experts and enthusiasts, including former Vice Chairman of
Nasdaq David Weild, creator of the ERC20 standard token and Ethereum
developer Fabian Vogelsteller, and more. Panel discussions will explore
the core foundations of the security token industry, including increased
regulations on tokens, blockchain technology, and more around how these
tokens will disrupt the financial industry.

The agenda for the Security Token Industry Launch Event includes:

  • October 4: Celebratory cruise on the Spirit of New York yacht
    where conference attendees will network with each other while sailing
    on the Hudson River past the Statue of Liberty and other iconic NYC
  • October 5: The Security Token Academy joins together with
    industry leaders to ring the opening bell for the industry at the
    Conrad NYC. Keynote speakers and panel discussions with experts and
    leaders will take place during the day, along with networking
    opportunities during breakfast, lunch and an early-evening reception.

"With many security token trading organizations launching operations in
2018 and 2019, we are declaring October 2018 as the official launch of
this exciting new industry in the United States," said Aubrey Chernick,
founder of the Security Token Academy. "On Wall Street, the opening bell
rings every weekday morning, but for the emerging security token
exchanges and organizations that will run constantly, that bell will
only ring once, so we're inviting passionate security token enthusiasts
to join us as we officially launch the industry."

Merrill Lynch Private Banking & Investment Group, a division of Merrill
Lynch, a Bank of America Corporation, is the lead sponsor of the October
event. Tickets for the Security Token Industry Launch Event are
