The strong user activity on tZERO shows that Overstock has been very successful in its goals with the digital dividend; the company’s founder and former CEO, Patrick Byrne, had stated that the air launch would increase tZERO volumes at past shareholder meetings.
In its first month of trading, OSTKO has quickly emerged as the leading token of value both in terms of trading volume and market capitalization, leaving the TZERO TZROP token in second place.
According to data published by the Security Token Group, the two value tokens issued by Overstock currently represent 71% of the total market capitalization of value tokens and 95% of the trading volume.
