"For security tokens, blockchains need the capability to encode the business rules required by the security token. This has previously been done by specific code written for each security token, known as a smart contract. In this model, each security token has its own separate smart contract holding all the business logic and the blockchain has no customisation to assist with this. 

Great care must be taken to ensure that every separate smart contract enforces the correct regulatory rules. To improve on that approach, common requirements and business logic for securities can be moved from the smart contracts into the blockchain software. This cannot be done with a generic blockchain and requires the creation of a new blockchain characterised by its customisation for securities."
