Société Générale, the European financial behemoth, has issued a security token on the Tezos blockchain.

It has been reported that the move constitutes the first tokenized asset offered by Société Générale.

However, the bank stated that the security token offering was a significant milestone in the efforts to begin full-spectrum cryptocurrency market operations by 2022.

The report said that Société Générale, through its subsidiary, Société Générale – Forge, plans to issue tokenized securities that can be integrated with legacy banking systems. Apart from asset tokenization, the bank’s crypto foray will also include exchange and custody services for institutional clients.

The bank stated:

“This new experimentation, performed in accordance with best market practices, demonstrates the legal, regulatory and operational feasibility of issuing more complex financial instruments (structured products) on public blockchain.”

Likewise, the maiden security token issuance marks the third consecutive year of crypto and blockchain adoption developments from the stables of Société Générale. Back in 2019, the bank, via its specialized credit institution Société Générale SFH, issued a 100-million euro bond as a tokenized security on Ethereum.

In May 2020, SFH and SG Forge, together with the Banque de France, issued a tokenized 40-million-euro bond, settled using an experimental central bank digital currency. Indeed, Société Générale is one of the financial institutions tapped by France’s central bank to conduct its experimental central bank digital currency pilot study.

It has been analyzed that earlier in April, Société Générale was among a group of global banks hired by the European Investment Bank to utilize blockchain in digital bond issuance.

Thus, Société Générale is one of many financial institutions in the region experimenting with the novel technology while the European Union is yet to arrive at definitive regulations for crypto and blockchain.
