STO is treated as legal, partial proof of ownership of a company. STO provides investors the security of a regulated instrument, combined with the agility and speed of blockchain.
Many governments are now interested to implement the Blockchain technology. Many corporate giants have recently announced platforms for trading security tokens, and in doing so hope to offer institutional investors a relatively safe and easy way to begin investing in blockchain.

Institutional investors never get proof of ownership of the business in which they invest their wealth. But STO provides ownership of a business entity in Blocks or Tokens.
