Overstock Files for registration of blockchain-based digital stock with SEC
Overstock filed an S-3 form for the registration of its blockchain-based digital preferred stock with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
MarketWatch reported on September 24th that Jonathan Johnson, Overstock’s newly appointed CEO, announced the filing in a statement earlier today. He said:
“This filing represents an initial step in the company’s registration of the OSTKO dividend, and the company is engaged in active discussions with regulatory authorities to obtain approval of the registration.”
Overstock shareholders will receive one unit of the Series A-1 preferred stock for every 10 common shares of the firm.
To get hold of the asset however, shareholders will first need to set up an account with Dinosaur Financial Group to access the PRO Securities trading system developed by Overstock’s blockchain subsidiary tZERO. Jonathan said:
“This dividend will be a great introduction for many to how blockchain technology can enhance the investor experience.”
