Ethereum's ERC-1404 Included in SEC Filings

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- TokenSoft, the leading platform for financial institutions issuing securities on the blockchain, is proud to announce the ERC-1404 token standard is seeing broad adoption by security token issuers and the financial industry.

TokenSoft clients offering securities internationally may use the ERC-1404 standard to prevent the flow back of tokens originally sold to investors under Regulation S into the U.S.

"Our legal counsel is really excited about the features of the ERC-1404, specifically its ability to help manage the flow and transfers of tokens.  They expect many clients to start exploring option...
