Community Benefit
The Securities Token Industry
Tokenization of securities is a major use case for EOS and a major transformative change which we believe will occur in the global economy. The current global market for tokenized securities is over $10 trillion. The key benefit of using a blockchain over the current systems is that it has the ability to radically reduce the complexity and layers currently required by the system.

The Current Securities Ledger System
Currently, securities ledgers are run through a complex network of broker-dealers, issuers, customers, registrars, transfer agents, clearing firms and other parties who all are communicating highly complex information in tens of millions of real-time trades.

To make matters worse for Wall Street, the hundreds of parties involved in keeping pieces of the ledgers do not trust each other to manage one primary ledger. Issuers are already trusted by shareholders however issuers cannot run the ledger either because in certain cases (such as activist held hedge funds or leveraged buyouts) the shareholders don’t even trust the issuer to know that they own the shares.

The system Wall Street and other major global markets are built on is based on continual incremental capacity speed and technology improvements on an essentially century-old system. As late as the 1970s paper shares were still delivered between brokers using bicycles and today hundreds of billions of dollars of trades are reported to custodians and figures ledgers using antiquated technology like FTP.

Medici Chainstone has a great deal of experience in this area and understanding of the extreme complexity and subtle nuances needed to update these antiquated systems with tokenized securities.

Medici ventures is the owner of tZero a fully licensed broker-dealer, ATS and partner of a national market system exchange. tZero owns SpeedRoute, a leading routing firm who works with hundreds of broker-dealers routing 20 million orders per day.

A blockchain can serve as an excellent alternative to a ledger run by a centralized trusted third-party. However, the actual implementation and usage of such a technology requires a great deal of industry know-how, legal and regulatory experience, operational licenses and numerous other expertise.

Community & Developer Meetups
With a presence in both New Hampshire and Utah, EOS Medici Chainstone is well suited to hosting general Community Meetups as well as Developer specific events to support the organic growth of the EOS community. Events that will draw upon the experience from hosting The Satoshi Roundtable and the FSBDAC in New Hampshire.
