Overstock issued digital securities to investors in Q2
The mainstream giant touts various areas of crypto involvement, including a blockchain wing known as tZERO. Overstock gave its stock shareholders a new kind of dividend payout in May — a security token under the ticker OSTKO, a slight alteration from its mainstream stock ticker, OSTK.
By June, reporting showed top comparative volume for OSTKO among other security tokens.
The company’s Blockchain sector shows promising results
Entities under the purview of Overstock’s daughter outfit, blockchain company Medici Ventures, posted forward advancement, including tZERO, according to comments in the statement from Overstock’s CEO, Jonathan Johnson. Johnson noted such businesses brought forth timely solutions in the face of current national issues.
“As an organization, Overstock remains focused, disciplined, and resilient as our employees execute against our strategic initiatives,” he said.
The CEO added:
“I am proud of the progress we have made, and I am confident that we can continue along this profitable trajectory. I look forward to providing a full update on our progress and performance during our earnings call.”
Overstock also tallied $62 million more than the same time period last year in terms of pre-tax retail income, while tZERO yielded 129% YoY net revenue gains — the stated result of volume from its daughter broker-dealer company SpeedRoute, the statement said.
Among a number of other events in 2020, Overstock’s tZero also recently listed Aspen Digital’s security token. Aspen Digital is connected to the St. Regis Aspen Resort in Colorado.
