Security Token Expert Stephen McKeon Explains Why Tokenization Is Set to Revolutionize Financial Markets

The Security Token Academy (STA) has released a new episode of its podcast, "Security Token Stories", featuring security token expert guest Stephen McKeon. The episode delves into the eight key features of security tokens that will propel the transformation of financial markets. In addition to serving as STA's Chief Strategy Advisor, McKeon is an Associate Professor of Finance at the University of Oregon's Lundquist College of Business where his research and teaching focuses on crypto, security issuance, and M&As.

The episode draws from McKeon's breakthrough whitepaper, the Security Token Thesis, which lays out the key features of tokenization that can be applied to financial markets to make them more efficient, secure and profitable. These new features include the ability to operate markets on a 24/7 cycle, the enabling of fractional ownership to democratize investing, rapid settlement, cost reduction, automated compliance and more. In the episode, McKeon adds new color to his original Security Token Thesis, and provides added insight on investing in the infrastructure of tokenized products for both securities and commodities.

"Security Token Stories" marks Security Token Academy's entrance into the podcasting space. The podcast, hosted by STA's Director of Strategy Derek Edward Schloss, interviews leaders in the security token industry to ask the questions that professionals, service providers, investors, and enthusiasts want to know most about the digitization of asset, securities, and finance. The inaugural episode of the podcast was an interview with Bryan Myint, Managing Director of Republic, on the future of compliant equity fundraising for blockchain-based firms.

"All of our content delves deep into asset tokenization beyond the surface level. Adding podcasts to our existing content mix, which includes high quality video content and written educational pieces, provides an additional avenue for us to share insights on the emerging security token industry," said Schloss. "We're excited to be at the forefront of this trend, driving important conversations about the future of our financial markets."

In addition to Security Token Stories, Security Token Academy regularly interviews experts as part of its Video Interview and Narrative Interview series, and hosts webinars, meetups and events to facilitate idea-sharing on the future of tokenization. The Corporate Member program showcases the leading companies building out the security token industry, while the new Professional Member program brings together the top legal professionals servicing the industry.
