Bitcoin infrastructure leader Blockstream today announced the issuance of a brand new liquid security token, the Blockstream Mining Note (BMN), on STOKR. As an EU-compliant security token, the BMN offers investors an alternative investment opportunity to get involved in Bitcoin mining.

It’s a win-win situation.”
