SEOUL, Korea – NongHyup Bank has teamed up with Stockeeper, the operator of Bankcow, to collaborate on securities token offerings (STOs). The innovative partnership aims to streamline the investment process and provide robust financial support for Korean cattle farmers.


Enhancing Convenience and Security in Livestock Investments


NongHyup Bank, through its strategic business agreement with Stockeeper, seeks to leverage securities token offerings to provide enhanced convenience and security for investors. A representative from NongHyup Bank stated:


"Our goal is to enhance convenience and security for investors using our fractional investment Application Programming Interface, while also supporting the establishment of a sustainable funding structure for local cattle farmers."

The Rise of Securities Token Offerings


Securities token offerings (STOs) are blockchain-based tokens that represent ownership in various assets, including livestock. This innovative method of investment has gained considerable momentum, especially following local financial regulators' announcement in February permitting the use of securities tokens for fractional investments.


Revolutionizing Livestock Investment Securities


Under the partnership agreement, NongHyup Bank and Stockeeper will collaborate to manage subscription funds and market the nation's first livestock investment contract securities. These efforts aim to make livestock investments more accessible and transparent for a broader range of investors. The subscription for these securities opened on the announcement day, marking a significant milestone in the livestock investment sector.


Utilizing the Application Programming Interface (API), NongHyup Bank will oversee the subscription funds for the livestock investment securities product operated on the Bankcow platform. The initiative ensures a secure and efficient investment process, enhancing investor confidence and participation.


Developing a Tokenized Securities Platform


In line with their innovative approach, NongHyup Bank is developing a platform dedicated to tokenized securities. This development is expected to further integrate blockchain technology into financial services, providing a more secure and streamlined investment experience.


Earlier this week, NongHyup Bank announced its role as the operator for a blockchain dissemination project led by the Korea Internet & Security Agency under the Ministry of Science and ICT. In collaboration with local blockchain platform developer BDGen, the bank aims to create a platform where fractional investment operators can issue token securities. The platform is scheduled to launch within this year, signifying a major advancement in the fintech and blockchain sectors.
