What’s Desico?

Desico, the new security token platform is now starting their STO or security token offering. Desico helps to launch, trade and invest in security tokens. The project originating from Lithuania has received great industry ratings, extensive attention in the media, and several endorsements.

Their token is projected to have 12-20 times return on investment over a 10-year period, providing quarterly payouts for holders.

Problem

Currently, the startup funding space is dominated by big investors, such as venture capitalist, and do not let retail or institutional investors to enter the market. ICOs are only allowed to issue utility token, which besides the speculative value of the coin, does not hold real value and is excluded from regulations.

Solutions

The Desico solution has 5 key components:

  • Platform to issue security tokens– Desico serves as a platform to launch verified and credible blockchain startup STOs
  • Exchange– STOs launched on Desico have immediate access to the exchange platform
  • Payment system- Desico will allow a member to manage their crypto and fiat holdings within the platform, operated under a European e-money license
  • Fully compliant– Desico operates under the current securities and crowdfunding license of Lithuania and endorsed by Lithuania’s Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Economy
  • Combines a community of STO token holders, issuers, investors and exchange members

Additionally, the DESI token provides quarterly payouts for holders, and guarantee against scam for the projects on their platform. There would be no institutional „whale discounts “or any price manipulation on the market. Desico also protects token holders under the Lithuanian and EU law.

Verdict

Desico has built an impressive proposition for the growing market of security tokens. They have achieved support and regulatory stability from the government of Lithuania, hence occupying a unique space in Europe for the launch of security tokens for startups.

Their project does not offer tokenization of current assets, it focuses only on startups. This provides an opportunity to be the market specialist in one specific area, while it might miss out on the overall tokenized securities market. The Desico solution from each point of view is complete: they have a sophisticated exchange and investor support as well. The platform, after all, will be as good as the amount and quality of projects listed on it.

The team is very experienced, with a successful venture behind them. This provides plenty of experience, however, it splits the attention of many team members between 2 companies.

The market just started to grow, but there are already some companies offering tokenization of securities. At this moment. however, most of them tend to have a different focus.

Desico is the first frontier of a new era, and a great new step in the world of crypto. Their success will bring plenty more blockchain startups to fruition, and they are in a good position to start.
