Swarm and Security Token Network Partner To Deliver Commoditized STOs and Drive Transparency

January 22nd, 2019Swarm and Security Token Network today announced a partnership to deliver security token offerings (STOs) on the Swarm platform. In addition the two companies will collaborate to drive forward security token industry standards and transparency.


Security Token Network will leverage Swarm’s proven security token issuance protocol to deliver commoditized and low-cost STO solutions to their clients. Swarm is one of few issuance platforms who can claim to have delivered a successful STO. Most recently TheArtToken raised more than $16m on Swarm.


Philipp Pieper, Swarm Co-Founder & CEO, commented, “We’ve been working closely with the Security Token Network team on their WhiteDeck initiative as well as on integration points with our products. They share our goals of driving trust and adoption using trustless technology, and we believe that Security Token Network have the capability to deliver an STO whilst navigating the surrounding complexity.”


Security Token Network’s mandate is to accelerate the mass adoption of security tokens through their media network and consulting services. With a background in venture capital, institutional finance, corporate law, and blockchain, the team manage STOs through the planning and delivery process.

We’re building out a full-stack STO service, and with that we need issuance partners who can support a wide variety of client needs. What initially attracted us to Swarm was the low-cost of token issuance and also their usage of the Stellar blockchain. As we worked with the team it became apparent that they are closely aligned with large financials to build a platform that has the feature set to support digital assets at any scale.” Richard Foster, CEO at STN.
