What is Tokenization?

Tuesday, 23rd January, 2024

1. The Tokenization Equation

= Authentication
+ Provenance
+ Fractionalization
+ Trading

Each token represents a fraction of ownership in the underlying asset, enabling investors to buy, sell, or trade these tokens on digital asset marketplaces.

Tokenization bridges the gap between traditional finance and the digital world, leveraging the benefits of blockchain technology.

Effectively, Tokenization brings the asset to the Crypto world where it can be fractionalized and traded 24x7 by a global audience.

Tokenization converts the economic rights of an asset into blockchain tokens. Each token represents a fraction of ownership in the underlying asset.
