interoperable tokens and cybersecurity operations, custody solutions and
transfer agents, technical foundations for the security token industry
and more.

launch in 2018, we expect to see security token offerings in the
spotlight in 2019," said Aubrey Chernick, founder of the Security Token
Academy. "We're excited to celebrate this movement with some of the most
brilliant minds in the security token industry, and to officially ‘ring
the bell' to launch the security token industry."

in New York City. It includes a special networking event onboard the
Spirit of New York Yacht, and features a full-day conference to be held
