About USTY

USTY is issued as a security token, a type of digital asset that represents ownership or investment in an underlying asset. In the case of USTY, the underlying asset is an ETF that seeks to track the investment results of an index composed of U.S. dollar-denominated government bonds issued by the U.S. Treasury. Unlike utility tokens, which primarily serve as access to a product or service, USTY is designed to comply with securities regulations and offer investors specific rights and protections.

USTY falls under the jurisdiction of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the United States. USTY tokens are subject to securities laws, which aim to protect investors and ensure transparency in the financial markets.

Yieldteq LLC, the ‘Issuer’ of USTY (also called the ‘Company’), plays a crucial role in the process. The Issuer is the entity that creates and offers USTY to investors. The Issuer is also responsible for complying with relevant securities regulations and must adhere to strict requirements to ensure proper disclosure, transparency, and investor protection.

The role of the Issuer includes:

  • Compliance: The Issuer must comply with the securities laws and regulations of the jurisdictions where it operates. This includes registering the token offering with the appropriate regulatory authorities or qualifying for an exemption.

  • Disclosure: The Issuer must provide investors with detailed information about the USTY offering, including the nature of the investment, associated risks, and any other relevant information. This allows investors to make informed decisions.

  • Investor Protection: The Issuer has an obligation to protect the interests of USTY holders. The Issuer must act in the best interests of the investors and follow regulations designed to safeguard investor rights.
