tZERO President Saum Noursalehi said Wednesday his token trading platform plans to enable trading of St. Regis Aspen Resort digital securities later this quarter.
- ASPEN’s cumulative shares represent a 19% indirect ownership stake in the five-star St. Regis Aspen Resort later. Aspen Digital Inc raised $18 million when it sold the security tokens to accredited investors in October 2018.
- Noursalehi told CoinDesk that ASPEN will become the alternative trading system's (ATS) first third-party digital security when it joins TZROP and OSTK, both associated with Overstock family companies.
- Though ASPEN was Elevated Returns’ first digital security, and it's first to come to tZERO, it is not expected to be the last. "We are looking forward to a long-term partnership beyond the Aspen security," Noursalehi said.
- Elevated Returns plans to tokenize around $1 billion in real estate projects in the coming years. President Stephane De Baets says his firm "expects a few offerings to go live in its Asian ecosystem before year-end."
