Show Notes

Stephen McKeon is a Partner at Collaborative Fund, a SF/NY venture fund investing in blockchain-based financial infrastructure with an eye towards the future of our financial markets. Stephen is also a finance professor at the University of Oregon and one of the sharpest thinkers in the security token space. Previously, Stephen joined Derek on Security Token Stories Episode #2 to chat about his “Security Token Thesis” paper and how security tokens will dominate previous methods of reporting and trading ownership through a number of killer features that security tokens and distributed ledgers enable. 

In this conversation, Stephen and Derek build on that episode by taking a look back at the security token industry in 2019, trends that Collaborative Fund is seeing in the decentralized finance and DAO spaces, and how all these new areas of interest may intersect with security tokens and traditional finance in 2020 and beyond.
