Leading STO research and consulting company Security Token Network (STN) has this week launched an industry first – the WhiteDeck. STN’s WhiteDeck document is a comprehensive guide for developing, pitching and fundraising a Security Token Offering (STO).

“After three months of work, and with help from 50+ contributors from 25+ companies, Security Token Network are proud to launch the WhiteDeck,” said Richard Foster, Co-Founder and CEO of STN.

“We’ve taken pitch deck fundamentals and whitepaper tokenomics to create the world’s first pitch framework for STOs,” he added.

In recent months, evidence has continued to mount indicating that hundreds of ICO projects were outright scams. For example, a widely-cited report by ICO legal advisory firm Satis Group LLP estimated that 81% of ICOs assessed were scams. The report also stated that these dubious projects “had no intention of fulfilling project development duties with the funds” they raised through their ICO.

A further 11% of ICOs succeeded to raise funding but were subsequently abandoned before their tokens were listed on an exchange. However, in these cases, it can be difficult to even ascertain the difference between a scam and a failed project.

In recent months, STOs have been gaining increasing interest from crypto entrepreneurs seeking a reliable and regulated fundraising mechanism. This growing interest in STOs is in large part due to the rapid decline in confidence with Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs).

“STN was founded with the aim of accelerating mass adoption by supporting and connecting hand-picked STO projects with ecosystem key players and investors. We believe in strong business fundamentals, the team, the product, the market, the customer,” said Mr Foster.

“We believe that tokenization will create a new trillion-dollar market. Security tokens will unlock opportunities for every investor by giving ownership of new asset classes. From mom and pop businesses, to Silicon Valley startups.

“Cryptocurrencies like Ethereum are backed by market sentiment. ICO utility tokens are often a square peg in a round hole, threatened by regulation and volatile markets. Security tokens are linked to business fundamentals and adhere to established legal frameworks,” he added.

“As part of our broader goal to help startups execute their STO, we are very excited to have partnered with the prestigious Security Tokens Realised conference in London. We will be hosting the STO Pitch Sessions on the 24th of January, where you can come along and pitch for free!

“If you’d like to come to the two-day event as a regular guest, you can get tickets on Eventbrite. Use the code STN30 to get 30% off.”
