We are delighted to invite you and the ecosystem to our seminar where we will dwell deeper into the topic “Opportunities and challenges with tokenized assets”.

The rise of cryptographic tokens and decentralized applications on peer-to-peer networks has created a significant opportunity for tokenization. Tokenization enables the creation of unique and immutable digital representations of the world. Through tokenization, several bottlenecks regarding the issuance and trading of assets can be resolved. Tokenization opens up new opportunities in distribution, settlement, fractionalization, and access to diverse asset classes such as properties, royalties, private companies and traditional securities.


This megatrend is poised to have a profound impact on the world. A Boston Consulting Group study anticipates tokenized assets reaching a value of $11 trillion by 2030, signifying a transformative impact.*Dominant financial institutions invest heavily, but the low-cost entry for smaller marketplaces accelerates development.
