The Security Token Standard

ERC1400 was born of the need for consistency in how we build, issue, trade, and manage security tokens. 

Leadership through standardization

In 2018, we hosted the Security Token Roundtable in Barbados after noticing a growing need for consistency with this new technology. Led by Polymath’s Adam Dossa and Pablo Ruiz, we built a team of developers, lawyers, transfer agents, and industry thought leaders to construct a global standard for security tokens. This is known as ERC1400.  

Polymath recently launched v3.0 of our ST20 security token protocol, making us now compliant with ERC1400. Learn more ->

What it Does

ERC1400 combines new and existing standards with the goal of creating a unified framework for all security tokens. It builds off of our ST20 protocol as an extensible and flexible set of standards for:

Core compliance components
Document handling and notification
Security token controls and permissions including delegation and forced token transfers
Partial fungibility - improving transparency for investors of their ownership rights
Why it Matters

Building industry consistency

Increased transparency.

Forced token transfers and partitioned balances promote transparency and auditability, reducing the risk of bad actors and improving regulatory acceptance.

Streamlined due diligence.

Stakeholders like exchanges or custodians no longer have the onus to complete technical due diligence.

Expanded range of supported assets.

Publicly traded equity and bonds, or traditionally illiquid assets like private placements, real estate, fine art, or synthetic asset baskets. 

Improved user experience.

Investors can easily understand why trades fail and what’s needed for compliance.
