Checking legislation in each country, future outlook for token securities


[Edaily Reporter Kwon So-hyun] In Korea, as piece investment companies emerged and investors flocked to the market, a token stock issuance (STO) market was created spontaneously. Expectations for the domestic STO market have also increased as the Financial Services Commission has promoted the incorporation of such piecemeal investments into the institutional system by making a judgment on the securities nature and announcing token securities guidelines. However, as the bill to support this is pending without passing the National Assembly, there are concerns that the opening of the STO market may be delayed.

With expectations that STO will become a new business, domestic securities firms and commercial banks are rushing to promote new businesses, and startups are emerging that are designing STO business models based on various real assets, but due to delays in legislating, they are taking a wait-and-see situation for now.

In overseas countries, where the token securities market opened one step ahead of Korea, issuance is actively taking place, but there are still problems to be solved in terms of distribution. Liquidity can be secured only when transactions are active, but transaction performance is not yet at a satisfactory level.

Yoon, who serves as the chairman of the party's digital asset special committee, is taking the lead in institutionalizing STOs, such as proposing an amendment to the Capital Markets Act that allows the issuance of token securities.
