SECURITY TOKENS ARE THE NEW NOW
I vividly recall the first time I downloaded the Mosaic Browser onto my SPARC 10 workstation and surfed the nascent Web. You could find pretty much every site on the Internet listed on the NCSA What's New Page and read the whole Web in a few hours. There was no need for search engines, social media or ecommerce because there weren't very many people.
But I saw enough promise to quit my job editing economics books at the World Bank and start my first company, HuskyLabs, which was hailed by WebWeek as the world's first Web development firm. We had some good times, developing Web applications for the Baltimore Sun, NPR, CBS, Penguin Books and The Coca-Cola Company.
We even broadcast the world's first live streaming new event, PopeTV, when John Paul II visited the US. We were important enough at the time to warrant an mention in the Baltimore Sun when we moved from our loft space in Hamden to a home on the river in the woods of the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia.
Today, I feel the same sense of excitement about security tokens. I feel like I've discovered something big, and once the rest of the world catches up, nothing will ever be the same.
And like in the early days of the web, not much is going to happen until there are people. In the web era, the people we needed were builders and browsers. In the crypto era, we need issuers and investors.
A PLATFORM FOR INVESTORS AND ISSUERS
In his classic poem The Changing Light at Sandover, James Merrill answered the age old question, "which came first, the chicken or the egg?" in a whole new way.
"Neither," he wrote (and I'm paraphrasing here), "they came together and fell asleep in each other's arms."
When we first started building websites, we heard from established marketing firms that "there's nobody on the Internet except college kids and freaks." Today, when people think of crypto, if they do at all, they think of radical libertarians, drug dealers and human traffickers on the Dark Web, lambos, scammy ICOs and bitcoin dispensers in Greenpoint, Brooklyn featured on a news show nobody watches anymore. Those are the people on the blockchain. Until now.
Indeco is the world's first end-to-end platform for issuers of and investors in security tokens that ensures quality, compliance and value. And most importantly, we're providing the highest possible level of personal, individualized support.
One thing we realized about security tokens is that they can be used to support innovative projects, not just companies. Our security token is based on the concept of an "investment contract," not equity or debt.
So multiple companies, or individuals, can get together and launch independent initiatives. We've seeded our platform with some ideas that interest us, from people we know and trust.
We're meeting new potential security token issuers with amazing projects every day. If you know an entrepreneur, or even an established business, that's looking for capital, please send them our way!
Unlike private company stock, security tokens can be very rapidly liquid. Many of the security token issuers will be seed-stage companies, without a mature product, experienced team or significant revenue.
Our platform is designed to create genuine intimacy between investors and issuers. We ensure that the security token is structured to align everyone's interests through direct profit distributions over the blockchain, reduced operating costs and limited dilution.
It's in all of our interests for all of these projects to perform like public companies, but with greater growth potential, higher efficiency and a heightened sense of purpose.
If you're a mission-drive investor or entrepreneur, please join us in the co-creation of the most important technical innovation since the internet itself.
