A DSO is a Digital Security Offering. These are also commonly referred to as STOs (Security Token Offerings). A DSO is an SEC-qualified security. Unlike an ICO, a DSO is an actual financial security backed by tangible assets of a corporation. STOs may be backed by financial assets, shareholder rights (like voting rights), cap tables, and more. In other words, DSOs function very similarly to stocks. When you invest in a DSO, you are investing in the assets of that company. Your DSO is digitally programmed ownership of the company registering the DSO.
Because DSOs are legitimate, SEC-qualified securities, you’ll be protected under Regulation A+ and SEC oversight laws.
CERES will issue DSOs (STOs) for investors who wish to access a blockchain for highly regulated industries.
