INVESTING IN

THE MILLENNIUM SAPPHIRE® STO

WHAT IS AN STO?

A security token offering (STO) is the process of securitizing an asset via security tokens to raise funding for a project in a regulated manner. An STO is a suitable alternative for companies that want to steer away from the unregulated nature of initial coin offerings (ICOs) and the long and tedious initial public offerings (IPOs).

To understand STOs, you need to understand security tokens as well. A security token represents a tradable financial asset. For instance, a security token can represent ownership of a company, a piece of real estate, or a piece of art.

On the other hand, you can view a security token as an investment contract that represents the ownership of a digital or physical asset. Companies running security token offerings must verify this ownership on the blockchain.

WHY USE

BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY?

MAKING OWNERSHIP EASY

Our MS STO is a smart contract posted on the blockchain denoting the immutable ownership of the asset.

Blockchain technology makes it easy and safe to own a priceless art object. Own a fraction of the Millennium Sapphire® from just US$500. Each (MS) security token will have hash added in the meta data field of the STO asset. 

ABOUT THE TOKEN

THE MILLENNIUM SAPPHIRE® IS THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS BLUE SAPPHIRE. THE MS TOKEN (MSTO) REPRESENTS ACTUAL OWNERSHIP IN THIS MAJESTIC PIECE OF FINE ART. OWNERSHIP WILL NOT ONLY REPRESENT YOUR STAKE IN THE MILLENNIUM SAPPHIRE® BUT ALSO PROVIDE YOU PRO-RATA SHARE IN ALL THE NFT SALES THAT OUR FULLY OWNED STUDIO CREATES AND CO-CREATES WITH SOME OF THE BEST ARTISTS IN THE DIGITAL WORLD. 

How does it work?

For the first time ever, ownership in a major work of art will be fractionalized via our STO, allowing buyers to gain ownership of the Millennium Sapphire® when they purchase MS security tokens.

The MS Token STO will utilize the power of blockchain technology in allowing investors to enjoy fractionalized ownership of one of the most iconic gemstones and contemporary artworks in the world.

Why an STO?

The blockchain is an immutable and hack-proof manner to register ownership of an asset. Tying the asset, ‘The Millennium Sapphire®,’ to the (MS) security token allows small to large investors to safely invest in the gemstone asset.

The blockchain offers a ledger for the transactions.  We don’t need third parties to have their own or to reach holders. We can do it all directly and transparently.

What are the benefits of ownership?

An investor that holds MS security tokens will own a proportional amount of the Millennium Sapphire® to their investment. Currently, the pre-STO value of MS Token is US$150,000,000.00 underwritten by the value of the Millennium Sapphire®, which has been 100% securitized through the MS Token. Buying the MS Token provides the investing public with an opportunity to join the ranks of billionaires and royalty in enjoying the capital appreciation and pride of owning such a rare work of art.

In addition, we will engage a leading branding firm to license the Millennium Sapphire® name to corporations and manufacturing firms for the branding of their products.

 

Can anyone invest?

Our STO is open to investors from all over the world. Upon the commencement of trading on major US SEC security token compliant exchanges, any investor who qualifies on those platforms will be able to invest and trade MS Tokens.

What are the token metrics?

Total MS Tokens (MSTO): 150 million tokens

Public Sale: 3 million tokens – 2%

Future Acquisitions: 30 million tokens – 20%

Incentives: 5 million tokens – 3.33%

Team: 19.62 million tokens – 13.08%

MFAI: 92.38 million tokens – 61.58%

Can an investment appreciate?

This art/gemstone has much upside. Since the creation of the Millennium Sapphire®, we have seen phenomenal growth in the valuation of this carving. By developing the branding along with a worldwide exhibition, we will drive more value, appreciation, and recurring income of the underlying asset. Income sources will include sales of the exhibition tickets, licensing, and special events.

 

How can I make payments?

We can accept USDT, ERC-20 USDC & ETH payments. These payment options will be available from May 24th, 2021 for eligible Regulation D & S pre-sale investors. On June 7th, 2021 the public sale will begin until $3 million of the tokens are sold out.

STO’S AND REGULATIONS

HOW DO SECURITIES WORK?

In the US, regulators use the Howey Test to determine if a token offering is a security or not. Here are the identifying factors of a security sale:

 

Z

Expectation of profit

Z

Investment of money

Z

An investment that was done in a common enterprise

In the US, regulators use the Howey Test to determine if a token offering is a security or not. Here are the identifying factors of a security sale:

 

^

Regulation D

This regulation exempts companies from registering with the SEC. Companies can raise an unlimited amount of funds, but only from accredited investors. Additionally, companies should fill “Form D” after selling the security tokens.

^

Regulation Crowdfunding

This regulation allows both accredited and unaccredited investors to take part in the STO. However, companies cannot exceed $5 million in funds raised annually. Regulation crowdfunding prevents pump and dump schemes because investors have to wait a year before selling their securities.

^

Regulation S

If you are not issuing a security token offering in the US, then you will need to follow this regulation. The requirement is that you follow the security regulations of the country where the STO will take place.

^

Regulation A+

The SEC has to qualify companies running an STO under this category. Once approved, anyone can participate in this STO. The limit for funds raised is $50,000,000, but there is no time limit.
