NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 14, 2018--The Security Token Academy, a brand dedicated to exploring the forthcoming security token revolution, announces a   Security Token Industry Launch Eventto be held on October 4 in New York City to celebrate the  emergence  of the security token industry.

The announcement follows this week’s sold-out  Security Token Summit, which included over a dozen panel discussions with top experts in the security token, blockchain and crypto communities around the disruptive effect that blockchain will have on the financial industry. The event was sponsored by Merrill Lynch Private Banking and Invest Group, Securitize, AlphaPoint, Clifford Chance, Harbor and tZero.

“We are proud to have held the first U.S. conference dedicated to Security Tokens and one that focused on the emergence of the security token trading organizations that will take place over the next six to twelve months,” said Aubrey Chernick, founder of the Security Token Academy. “Compared to the early fledgling 2017 ICO era, we expect to see the Security Token Industry strive to achieve more maturity and integrity, and we look forward to celebrating the opening bell of the Security Token Industry later this fall."
