UK Token Advisory Firm TokenMarket to Help DOVU Conduct STO

Token advisory service provider TokenMarket announced on Tuesday that it had reached an agreement with blockchain-oriented DOVU, which focuses on mobility use cases. According to the partnership, TokenMarket will support DOVU with its first security token offering (STO) event.

DOVU, a startup backed by Jaguar-Land Rover’s investment branch InMotion Ventures and UK non-profit organization Creative England, had its token sale event last year and secured $6.2 million. The firm used the funds to build a token, wallet, and marketplace ecosystem revolving around mobility rewards. Earlier this month, DOVU announced its intention to sell 5% of its equity through an STO, which is planned for the first quarter of next year. After the equity crowdsale, users will be able to hold both utility and security tokens, with the latter providing ownership rights.

Atomic Capital CEO Outlines Ethereum’s Current Security Token Standards

Atomic Capital CEO Alex Blum recently summarized several ERC-20 security token standards that are currently live on Ethereum. While they all aim to achieve similar goals, the mechanisms and protocols in which they strive for such achievement can differ— sometimes significantly.

Security tokens differ from utility tokens insofar as the former have a strict need for regulatory compliance. This need endures throughout the entire lifecycle of security tokens: from initial issuance to secondary market trading.

Various agencies are responsible for enforcing such regulatory requirements. In the United States, for example, there is the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).
