Asset tokenization is a growing use case of distributed ledger technology within the capital markets that supports the efficient automation of an asset’s life cycle. Programmable digital assets offer significant advantages to traditional securities formats but are not yet widely adopted or supported by traditional market infrastructure providers.
Goals and Objectives
Accelerate the realization of the liquidity, settlement, cost, and risk benefits of asset tokenization by adopting modular technical architecture and universal contractual standards to interface efficiently with distributed ledger infrastructure service providers.
Blockchain and smart contracts
Use Case Summary
Asset tokenization represents an important digital transformation use case in the capital markets’ progress toward a digital-first operation environment. Asset tokenization has provided an efficient mechanism for fractionalization and securitization of both traditional and nontraditional assets. Tokenization together with distributed ledger market infrastructure potentiates significant structural reform in the capital markets.
