How to invest in AMC stock with tokenised assets?

Also, investors and traders that don't have direct access to the NYSE may find it hard to invest in AMC stock or the process of investing might be rather complicated and expensive.
The problems of investing in stocks through direct purchase or sale are overcome with the development of blockchain technology and the creation of tokens for stocks and other types of financial assets. Tokenising the assets such as shares, bonds, indices and commodities is enabled through the smart contracts created and recorded on a distributed ledger that enhances security, swift execution of transactions and lowers transaction costs.
