Jay Clayton, chairman of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Comission (SEC) has recently stated that all stocks could become tokenized. The tokenization of assets basically refers to a security token that represents a real tradable asset. They are cheaper, more transparent, more accessible and should provide greater liquidity because they can be traded on a secondary market.

Clayton appeared in a webinar hosted by the CDC and Securrency, a blockchain startup, stating:

It may be very well the case that those all become tokenized, adding, Our regulatory framework, the principles of our framework, is time tested, and it's been time-tested through many innovations.

One of the main concerns behind this statement and tokenized assets in general is the lack of clarity in what constitutes a security token. Clayton tried to clarify this problem by saying:

If you're not trying to finance your network, you're not trying to give people a return on your network, it's probably not a security. But if what you're trying to do is finance your network with your token or provide people with a return for using the network with your token, you look at the traditional tested security, it's pretty clear it's a security.

According to the most recent reports, cryptocurrency exchange trading volumes almost surpassed $170 billion in September. The blockchain industry continues growing at an increasing pace and governments around the world are noticing.


Xfers, a payment company based in Singapore announced the release of XSGD, a new stablecoin pegged to the Singapore dollar. XSGD would become the first ever stablecoin pegged to the Singapore dollar.

The primary use case of the new stablecoin will be to provide financial institutions with access to crypto-based institutions. Sharon Paul, the head of payments for Xfers stated in a recent interview:

Payments are more often than not, the first step in enabling financial access. With this in mind, and observing the rise in tokenised assets, it was a natural progress for our team to include Stablecoins into our suite of payment options. It is with great joy to offer XSGD as an interoperable and hence seamless settlement option for the digital assets and capital markets industries.

Quote of the day

Bitcoin, and the ideas behind it, will be a disrupter to the traditional notions of currency. In the end, currency will be better for it.
