Blockchain for digital assets and tokenization: use cases and applications

The rise of digital assets is the third innovative wave in blockchain, after the initial explosion of cryptocurrencies and the ensuing enterprise application of blockchain/DLT. The re-imagination of how value is moved and managed is massively impactful now and will fundamentally change the nature of business across many industries.

The ability to represent assets on a digital system and execute transactions using open-source blockchain technology is creating new markets for previously illiquid assets and reducing risk and cost in post-trade systems. Tokenization uses digital asset tokens which can represent any asset or agreement between parties today with the potential to settle directly against digital currency or alternative payment solutions. These tokens boost market efficiency by enabling end-to-end solutions combining trading, settlement and custody services into one seamless offering, thereby unlocking liquidity in previously illiquid markets.
