Security Token

We created a Security Token that automatically enforces specific conditions related to legal and regulatory requirements applicable to securities in various jurisdictions.

Through micobo’s enterprise tokenization solution, issuers have access to their independent WebApplication to easily interact with the smart-contracts composing the tailored Security Token Standard.

micobo’s Security Token Standard is an ERC20- and ERC1400-compatible, constrainable Ethereum token and compliant with German/European financial securities regulations. NVISO has thoroughly audited the smart contracts coded into the Security Token. These smart contracts are the backbone of micobo’s enterprise tokenization solution and have been used to tokenize more than 250 million euros worth of shares and assets.

Main features

  • ERC 20 compatible
  • ERC 1400 Partitions
  • Embedded Corporate Actions: Customizable
  • Controller operations for compliace (force transfers etc., can be turned off)
  • Very granular, customizable roles management
  • Optional “free” transactions through GSN
  • Bulk-minting, -whitelisting and -addRoles
  • Document Management
  • Transfer Constraints (Modules), updatable & customizable
    • Whitelist for accounts
    • Dividend payments
    • Interest rates (including negative)
    • Locking periods for accounts and amounts
    • Time-based spending limits
    • Vesting periods
    • Off-chain validation

With a granular role system our clients are able to distribute responsibilities between issuers, auditors/compliance, and other authorized third parties. This means that while, for example, the issuer has control over minting and locking tokens, an auditor could have the power to pause the token contract or force a transfer in case of fraud. If needed, these features can also be turned off forever at a later point, and new constraints can be added upon request.

Roles can be assigned and removed by our clients’ wallet(s). The following is an overview of the standard available roles:

Role Description
Admin Manages roles / add partitions
Controller Force token transfer
Issuer Mint tokens
Pauser Pause transactions
Redeemer Burn tokens
Cap_editor Edit caps for partitions
