Introduction to This Documentary
I decided to create this documentary about security tokenization after learning that many of my preconceived notions about security tokens were just flat wrong. During my journey, I also discovered that several individuals I respected (and who were otherwise well versed on cryptoassets) also had misconceptions about security tokenization, how and where security tokens attempted to add value, why they might be needed, and the mechanisms of how they worked.
As my friend, Taylor Pearson pointed out in a really long Tweet storm: understanding how cryptocurrencies work means understanding cryptography, distributed systems, economics, and politics.
Security tokens add to this list . . .
- SEC regulations & securities laws
- Equity mechanics
- Private and public issuance of stock
- Secondary trading
- Guidelines from over 100+ legal jurisdictions
My purpose here is not to convince you that security tokens and asset back tokens are valuable or needed, but instead to simply the complex and tell the story of projects makers, issuers, investors, and influencers driving adoption of security tokens.
To create this content, I had conversations with leading thinkers and creators in the field. What I found is that, at every step of the way, the tokenization of securities, real estate, art, and other real-world assets is forcing us to reexamine old habits and ways of operating.
This documentary started off as a passion project, quickly turned into a huge, time-consuming pain, and is now back to being a passion project as we hit publish.
