Distributed ledger technology (blockchain) has attracted strong interest as an alternative platform for issuing and trading securities that could broaden investor reach. Korean policy making and regulatory agencies are closely reviewing security tokens (securities issued and traded on a blockchain), with the dual policy interests of protecting investors while also promoting innovation. This session will discuss the government’s perspective, what distinguishes security tokens from other digital assets, and their potential uses.
