    Security tokens have at times, been heralded as the next major phase of crypto adoption. Despite the surrounding hype, security tokens don’t have any actual trading volume to speak of. In this conversation, Tokensoft CEO Mason Borda discusses the hurdles that still remain for adoption and outlines the bullish case for security tokens over the next few years. Conservatively, he estimates that we could see $10M in security tokens trading hands each day by year end and that once the industry gets moving, it can scale quickly from there.
