Enter stage left: Tokenized securities. With the advent of the decentralized smart contracts, entire asset classes are looking at tokenization as a new way to not only provide fractional interest in assets but also create liquidity across global exchanges that didn’t exist before. The root of this all stems from the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS act) in 2015 in which the SEC opened up Regulation A+ to allow for private companies to effectively launch mini IPOs for any asset.

Sometimes I'll write about work, other times I'll write about you. Trust that I won't ever write about my time spent on the couch (reserved only for football Sundays).
A night out with your friends will almost always feature the “new show” discussion. “Have you seen this new series on Hulu, called A Handmaid’s tale?” “Have you seen the latest season of Narcos, Mexico style?” There’s a new social clout in town and it’s all about the quantity of consumption.

Our country, society, religion, family all the way down to a brotherly pact is built on this. Who are YOU to stop the tradition? What ego must you carry to say, “nope, this is not how I (I) (ME) (MYSELF) choose to live.” Terrell Owens doesn’t show up to Canton for his induction to the Football HOF – the commentaries erupt. Baseball institutes instant replay, the traditionalists lash out. Is this not progression of the game’s fairness? My family ditches Turkey for brisket, people scoff. Is the family not still together remaining thankful? When there is a deeper meaning to a tradition, the mechanics may change but the roots of the tradition remain in bedrock.Read More
