It comes with great honor to announce that Security Token Market is fundraising via an STO on Securitize!
This has been in the works for the past 3 years and I couldn't be more proud and grateful to be a part of it!
Gooood morning, Rainmakers 🌴!
Before we dive in, I want to emphasize I am not using this newsletter edition as a cop-out on my usual editions.
It would have been easier to merely promote our offering and go on with my day, but that's not the Jonah Schulman way and that's certainly not the Security Token Market way.
We always provide value whenever and wherever we can.
I hope you enjoy this edition like all of the other ones and I am so so grateful for you reading this - more than you will ever know <3
I usually have two topics to dive into, but this week I decided to Test The Waters and ride a different wave, the Security Token Market wave that is!
1️⃣ 🌴The Power of Community & STM🤝: When you have a community behind you, there's nothing you can't achieve!
Without further ado, it's time to…
Get liquid & Test The Waters 💧
🌴The Power of Community & STM🤝
The most valuable asset a firm can have is community.
It's not capital.
It's not human capital either.
When all else fails and you are out of resources, but still have a strong community supporting you - you'll make it!
When you really break it down, community consists of two key aspects:
A group of people that share the same or similar core beliefs
Being part of something bigger than yourself
A community can represent many things.
It can be a fan base, a religion, a university, a company - you name it!
Not too long ago, the WallStreetBets community seemed to have a stronghold on the financial markets.
That's because they did!
A community of around 10 million retail investors came together with one common goal - to take back the power and greed away from the institutional investors or “the suits.”
And oh boy did they make head-way and shake some of the traditional institutions.
The point I am trying to make is - if you have a strong enough purpose and community behind your mission, there are no limits to what you can achieve.
We at Security Token Market (STM) have been cultivating a community with a similar purpose.
Similar to WallStreetBets, our sentiment revolves around bringing transparency of opportunities and information in order to level out the capital markets playing field.
Real quick, let's take a look at the current state of the capital markets:
Important note: Before a company can trade on a public exchange like the NYSE, it has to IPO. Before it IPOs, the company is a privately-owned company (many restrictions on who can invest).
Investment example: Facebook's timeline
Privately-owned: Exclusive to accredited investors & institutions
Facebook was founded in 2004
Raised approximately $2B in private funding from companies like Goldman Sachs, Founders Fund, Microsoft, Artis Ventures, and many other institutions and accredited investors like Peter Thiel
Publicly-owned: Open to all investors
IPO'd on May 18th, 2012 at a valuation of $100B!
Investors who had the opportunity to invest in the private-rounds cashed out big!
Investors who got in after the IPO - have experienced miniscule returns in proportion to the private-investors
Do you see the issue here?
Okay, I know this is fascinating, but let's bring that creepy nodding back a notch.
The good news is there's a new era of capital markets emerging.
That's where STM comes in.
Over the past 3 years, through consistency, diligence, and getting into the weeds STM has emerged as the trusted source of security token data and media!
We want our community to feel confident in the new era of the capital markets.
That's why we have officially commenced our Test The Waters fundraising campaign to develop a revamped data and media platform for our community to leverage!
Because the future of the capital markets depends on it.
It depends on you, our community, The Rainmakers 🌴
