Tokenization of assets is the concept of using blockchain technology to securitize assets. It is the process of issuing a blockchain token that digitally represents a real tradeable asset. The issued “security tokens” are created through a type of initial coin offering – or in this case – security token offering (STO). They can either represent regulated financial instruments (equities, bonds, loans, and funds), tangible assets (real estate, artworks, precious metals), or intellectual property (copyright to works of authorship).
The benefits of tokenization include increased liquidity, faster settlement, lower costs and bolstered risk management. Even private securities or illiquid assets such as fine art can be tokenized and traded on the secondary market. This means that a much larger audience of investors can access them. But what’s more, with high divisibility, investors can purchase tokens that represent only a small percentage of the asset.
Coming together in a “token economy”, these benefits are designed to bring a more efficient and fairer financial world that reduces the traditional barriers to creating, buying, and selling securities. Which companies are working towards this brand new financial system that is more transparent, efficient, and inclusive?
