Event description


Objective Capital's Digital STOs and Exploration & Mine Finance Workshop

Digital Security Token Offers (STOs) promise a new way of funding mining and exploration projects.

The only limit is the imagination of financiers.“Tokenised” equity or debt is the first step but specific mines or even milestones and royalty streams are all securitise-able as efficient digital securities.

The technology has been tried and test for more than a decade but for some it still feels too early. How do they work? How do you trade them? Regulation? How will it change the role of bankers and Exchanges?

Will these be the tools that revitalise mine finance?

Join us for a half day seminar introducing the role of STOs in mine finance.

The event begins with registration at 9.00 am and finishes with networking and lunch.

The programme covers:

9.30 Welcome & introduction

9.40 STOs: using digital securities to finance exploration & mining

A tool to revitalise mine finance?

A discussion of what it is that makes Digital STOs different from ICOs and traditional financing tools. Are they the tool that will revitalise exploration and mine finance?

10.00 Use cases in Exploration & Mine Finance

When does a digital security make sense?

Creativity is the only limit for digital securities. We consider the merits of various use cases for digital securities including simple tokenisation of traditional debt and equity, securitisation of royalty streams and new asset classes that securitising milestones and Net Smelter Royalties might create. Where will this new tool have most traction?

10.25 Redefining how diamond mines are financed – traceability as an asset

11.00 Coffee break

11.20 Crypto-gold & STOs - a use case for gold miners

Gold has been a store of value for more than 5000 years but it is a poor form of money. Crypto-gold puts gold on the blockchain and into everyday circulation. It also gives gold miners an innovative financing tool.

11.50 Making a secure and compliant offer

Securing investors and the value of jurisdiction shopping

The rise of STOs marks the embrace of rules and the end of the wild-west mentality of the digital space. Our panellists discuss the current state of regulation in the UK, Europe and US and the ways of protecting the interests of the investors.

12.20 Secondary markets & liquidity

How will you trade them?

With digital securities, new trading venues and methods are set to challenge the traditional exchanges. We discuss how to trade your digital securities and how to find liquidity in the new environment.

12.45 What to look for in a mining STO

Where are the pitfalls?

Critics have famously described mining as a “liar standing by a hole in the ground”. Does the apparent security of digital technologies change the old rules of due diligence?

13.00 Lunch & Networking
