Tokenization of Real Assets. The Real Value of the Crypto Economy
21 January 2020
16:00—17:00

The turbulent birth of the crypto economy garnered significant attention and led to the emergence of numerous new concepts and tools (cryptocurrency, distributed registries, decentralized societies, fundraising and venture capital investments), but so far the crypto economy has had only a minor influence on the real economy. The complexity of the tools and lack of regulatory framework has made the crypto-economy niche popular among investors willing to take high risks. Recent attempts by companies to issue mass cryptocurrencies (Libra, TON) have led to fierce resistance from governments and regulators. Everything is changing radically with stable tokens linked to a particular security. Can the tokenization of real assets lead to the mass adoption of crypto? Has a new window of opportunity opened?
