Similar events have taken place in New York City and London. But the upcoming event reaching Singapore signifies a growing interest for digital securities in the Asian market.

Securitize, for example, formed a partnership with Coinstreet and STO Global-X to bring digital securities to Asia. The firm then partnered with the Japan Security Token Association to strengthen its presence in Asia.
