Financial sector: 5 Asset towards tokenization

The most important events, recorded in the last 6-8 months in the field of blockchain technology and financial services, include the securitization of illiquid assets such as Venture Capitalist (VC) funds, real estate, art and, even, the tokenization of sports teams.

Indeed, asset valuations will be revised thanks to the introduction of blockchain technology in the sector as a whole.

Although the driving force behind this change is cryptocurrencies and the Blockchain, there has been an evolution in a more organized, regulated and transparent market for both institutional and retail investors.

From innovators and early adopters, the market has become mainstream, with financial institutions like JPMorgan e Fidelity Investments who entered this new market.

Why now after 11 years?

Although blockchain and Bitcoin were launched on the market a decade ago, we are only now witnessing the mass adoption of the decentralization for three factors:

  • the Bitcoin boom in late 2017 brought a wider audience to the blockchain and cryptocurrency market,
  • the transition of financial markets towards greater open-source, transparent and financial inclusiveness,
  • institutions have understood that cryptocurrency and the underlying technology associated with it in the blockchain are convenient for securitizing assets.
