Realizing the shortcomings of ICOs, the blockchain community and potential investors embraced security token offerings (STOs) and stablecoins enthusiastically. In this book, we start with an overview of the blockchain technology along with its basic concepts. We introduce the concept behind STO, and cover the basic requirements for launching a STO and the relevant regulations governing its issuance. We discuss U.S. securities laws development in launching security digital tokens using blockchain technology and show some real use cases. We also explore the process of STO launches and legal considerations. We introduce popular security tokens in the current blockchain space and talk about how to develop a security token DApp, including smart contract development for ERC1404 tokens. Later, you'll learn to build frontend side functionalities to interact with smart contracts. Finally, we discuss stablecoin technical design functionalities for issuing and operating STO tokens by interacting with Ethereum smart contracts. By the end of this book, you will have learned more about STOs and gained a detailed knowledge of building relevant applications—all with the help of practical examples.

Blockchain For the Non-Technical*** THIS IS A PREVIEW PRINT ***I am IBM ́s official liaison to the Ethereum core developers and frequently give talks on blockchain topics around the world. After one keynote I was asked for a non-technical guide to understand blockchains. This is it.This book aims to help you get your head around blockchains in general and around Ethereum specifically.Since Ethereum is currently the pre-imminent blockchain, it makes sense as reference point. The essential stuff is the same for any blockchain.This text was written for people with a fast grasp, who are not programmers. Reading this should give you the basics to cut through the hype and to identify blockchain opportunities in your professional domain.There are tiny bits of code, which can be admired and skipped.We ́ll look at Ethereum ́s benefits first, how it is used and what can be done with it; then explain blockchain machinery, visiting the terms that you ́ll be confronted with in every discussion about its application. Exactly what you need to tell the noise from the signal in the echo chamber of honest misunderstandings and desperate marketing.We take a good hard look at limitations, throw in some history and names and give a realistic outlook.The index reads like an FAQ and you can use the book like that. However, there is a strong build up, one chapter leading to the next, as optimized path to understanding all the interconnected, moving parts. There ́s quite a number of them.Blockchains are not a trivial topic.The fact that blockchain client programs are small has fooled many people into believing it can ́t possibly be that hard. The challenges are in the implications though.But what's in this book will put you ahead of almost everyone outside the core bubble.If you find something explained badly, please yell at me at: ethereum.bookØgmail.comA deep dive into this field now - at least getting started - will help you to become part of the fun ahead. It should allow you to stand out, land deals or a great job.It will also make you see first hand how early we are in the game. Take your time! It ́s worth it.Hopefully, we will find a contributor to the blockchain community in you, strengthening the portfolio of real-world use cases. Ideally, you ́ll learn to navigate your own uncharted course through your domain and revolutionize it, applying blockchain tech where it really makes sense.From the Book's Index:What is Ethereum?What is Ether?What is Ethereum Not?What is Ethereum Used for?Create Your Own Digital Currency!How Does Ethereum Compare?How Does Ethereum Work?What is a Blockchain?What ́s the Magic?What is Holding It Back?What is a Cryptocurrency?What is a Digital Currency?What is a Digital Asset?What is a Mirror Asset?What is Mining? What is a Decentralized Application (Dapp)? What is a Smart Contract?What is a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO)?What is an Oracle?What is Timestamping?What is a Private Chain?What is a Virtual Machine?What is the EVM?What is Gas?What is Solidity?How Fast is Ethereum / Latency?What is Ethereum ́s Capacity / Throughput?What is Probabilistic Finality?How Ready is Ethereum?Is Ethereum Legal?Do You understand Money?How did Bitcoin Start?Who is Behind Ethereum?What is The DAO?What is Ethereum Classic?What is all the Hype about?Will Ethereum Change the World?Opinions in this book are mine, not that of IBM. I am not an Ethereum spokesperson either.Drafts of the book have been run by core Ethereum people and highest ranking IBM engineers though, in a bid to ensure accuracy.Please use ethereum.bookØgmail.com for feedback or questions. I'll be happy to hear what you felt was missing or presented out of order, no matter your background.
