March 5, 2018 — Polymath, the company bringing the multi-trillion dollar securities market to the blockchain via its industry-first security token issuance platform, has announced at its inaugural Polycon conference that the “Dean of Digital Currency Lawyers” Marco Santori will be joining its advisory board. He will be providing guidance on operationalizing the legal elements of Polymath’s ST20 security token protocol.
CEO of Polymath Trevor Koverko said, “Marco’s experience as both a lawyer for some of the highest profile blockchain projects and as an innovator behind the SAFT Framework is what makes this a game changer not only for Polymath but for the securities token space as a whole.”
Santori, who recently left his position as a Partner at Cooley LLP to join the blockchain industry on the company side, is regarded as one of the leading legal minds in the ecosystem. As an author of the SAFT Project whitepaper, as well as the Legal Ambassador for the Delaware Blockchain Initiative, Santori’s work has served as the foundation for the creation and growth of the security token market that Polymath is now positioned to take into the next stage of development.
“I’m delighted to be joining Polymath in an advisory capacity,” Santori said. “Securities tokens have the potential to do more than just rebuild Wall Street on a blockchain. They can build a more egalitarian and democratic financial system – potentially even a safer system – where systemic risks are more transparent and more effectively mitigated by market participants. This is a valuable mission.”
