Asset digitalization (aka tokenization) is creating a whole new user experience and investor opportunities. Digitizing an asset and using a smart contract enables the shares’ owners, for example, to sell shares of private securities on complaint exchanges on-demand with potential high liquidity, avoiding lengthily lockup of their capital like with traditional investments.
Assetization it isn’t doing anything to the financial security itself, but it changes the way ownership is managed and how the activities after the investment are automated. Automation, thanks to Blockchain technology, with advantages such as instant, secure, traceable and cryptographically secure distribution and transfer of highly customizable, digitized exchange units without the need for intermediary parties trusted by both sides of the transaction.
Further, tokens are issued and settled on a Blockchain, which secures instant and effortless settlements without the need for issuing and signing stock certificates. Access to capital via blockchain is provided on a global scale 24/7.
Any company (SME, MNC) can “tokenize” both common and preferred equity. Any individual can "tokenize" personal belongings and goods. Consumers are valuing experiences over possessions, hence a rising number of goods categories such as clothes, furniture, jewelry, houses, collectibles, vehicles are becoming available for rent or resell, or even split into shares that can be traded.
Emerging 'assetization economy' where personal goods being treated as assets, and tokenized for fractional ownership.
"Tokenization has the potential of unlocking enormous amounts of capital that are being kept in illiquid assets from the traditional systems." (micobo)
Not yet excited about Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) and Blockchain in Capital Markets?
Quite some reconciliation. This what it could look like using DLT and Blockchain…
Not convinced yet? How about the secondary market post-trade settlement process of a traditional vs tokenized security?
Yes, complex, costly, lengthy and complex processes. Some might call that inefficient….
Not yet curious? Cross-border transfer, transact, settlement, trade!
Expensive, lengthy and inefficient current processes.
