LEVIAS INC completed J-STO fund-raising on March 25, 2019

2019 is the first year of STO in Japan

LEVIAS INC (CEO: Keiko Tanaka, Address: Shinjuku Sumitomo Building 26th Floor, 2-6-1, Nishi Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo Japan 163-0226) uses Blockchain technology to drive global innovation. LEVIAS INC aims to connect entrepreneurs and investors around the world without borders and to create opportunities for talented entrepreneurs to make global challenges through STO*. Moreover, we also aim to build and deploy comprehensive solutions (LEVIAS-STO Solution).
As a first step, LEVIAS INC completed J-STO fund-raising on March 25, 2019.

J-STO is the brand name (trademark pending) of our unique solution, a kind of STO conducted by business-type funds (collective investment scheme) under the current Japanese laws and regulations. Investors, who invest in the business-type fund (collective investment scheme) will get "Security Tokens" which also represent their positions.

The LEVIAS-STO Solution will make an ecosystem with financial operators, law firms, technology operators and other professionals to support fund-raising for global entrepreneurs.

*STO : abbreviation of "Security Token Offering", which is a new fund-raising method by issuing "Security Tokens" using Blockchain technology. Although the definition of "Security Token" is not unique, it means, that Digital Tokens represent the rights applicable to securities. "Security Tokens" in J-STO are given to investors as a position of the contractual status of the Silent Partnership (business-type fund). At present, the legal system regarding STO is undeveloped and unclear in Japan. In the future, legal amendments may change the regulations of the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act for STO.
