Comments from the investor

About Token Convertible Bonds

WEF is a Singapore corporation in the form of Public Company Limited by Guarantee. Since WEF is not a stock company, it raises funds through the sale of tokens (Whole Eath Coin, WEC) issued by WEF rather than equity. However, since the WEC issued by WEF is not listed on the Japanese market at this time, we have decided to issue bonds that can be converted into WEC after the WEC is listed on the Japanese market.
The use of equity convertible bonds is becoming increasingly popular in Japan, but this is the first time in the world that a token convertible bond has been used to raise funds (*according to WEF research).
