With digital securities, investors may receive “tokens,” which are registered investment vehicles and represent ownership in a company. This is often referred to as tokenization, a coin termed in 2010, but has since become less popular in favor of the term digital securities. The reason is that digital securities and digital assets became the preferred term to accurately convey the time, effort, and reliability in this form of investment.
There has also been an increase in the discussion surrounding another blockchain-based asset, NFTs. Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are unique cryptographic assets that cannot be replicated and stored on a blockchain. However, it is essential to remember that not all digital assets meet digital security requirements. However, if an NFT can meet the digital security requirements, they can be offered through raises under exemptions like Regulation A+.
