Depending on the jurisdiction, the definition for an STO and security can vary. In the EU securities are basically shares of companies (called equity securities) or corporate bonds, also known as debt securities, or other type of securities that generate payment instruments such as cash or can be used for buying back securities. In the US, the definition of securities is much broader, as the main defining character of a security is the purpose of investing and what the company or the entrepreneurs are doing with the collected investment proceeds. Therefore the definition of security in the US doesn’t depend that much on the actual tools that the investors are getting to redeem.
Security token offering is somewhat a newer phenomenon in the cryptocurrency world. STOs give public the opportunity to invest in security tokens, many of which have dividends or other ways to give value to the investors, usually based on the equity of the company behind the STO. Typically STOs are targeting accredited investors.
If you have your own STO, you can send a request to make your STO listed on Top ICO List to make it visible to more potential investors.
