TALLINN, Estonia - Nov. 22, 2019 - PRLog -- The Securities and Exchange Commission recently issued a Transfer agent license to Harbor, a digital platform for alternative assets, thus making it the first blockchain company to acquire both transfer agent license and broker-dealer license according to Harbor CEO Joshua Stein.

The most recent accomplished permit will enable the digital platform to uphold financial records of security token proprietorship, track account balances, and pay returns as it draws in blockchain firms looking to make a Regulation A+ offering. The SEC necessitates companies to work with transfer agents for Regulation A+ offering. Regulation A+ is the first public offering substitute equipped to new businesses that need early subsidizing. Regulation A+ financing was presented in 2012 by means of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act. Blockstack a blockchain-based startup founded by Muneeb Ali and Ryan Shea was the first off digital token offering to have received the green light from the SEC to conduct a 23 million US dollar investment below Regulation A+. Nonetheless, it was Harbor who received both licenses from the Securities Exchange Commission.

He furthermore stated that one should contemplate about the whole life cycle of it, there is selling the financiers into the venture, keeping up the venture while they are in, and managing how they are exchanged. The broker-dealer is for the most part associated with bringing up the financiers into the venture. And the transfer agent manages the records while they are in and delivers out profits while managing when they payout. The CEO further clarified that with the new transfer agent license; Harbor would now be able to hope to offer its services to blockchain companies in the U.S who wish to manage token contributions in accordance with the SEC's Regulation A+ prerequisite.

Stein presently made a statement that securities guidelines do not work with respect to utility tokens in decentralized applications, including that present securities laws are fitting for customary securities, and that they are not a solid match for the ICO business.
