Thank you for reading this month’s edition and for all of the support we receive each time we share resources on tokenized securities.
What became obvious in the past month is that traditional finance players are beginning to publicly express positive stances towards digital assets. Yesterday we met with Mr Pierre Gramegna, Luxembourg Finance Minister, where we held encouraging discussions on how blockchain can transform one of the most active financial centres in Europe. It seems as though the tides are beginning to turn with significant actors in financial markets.
Digital assets, asset-backed tokens or security tokens? Many commentators are still debating the wording that should be used to qualify the representation of securities on a blockchain. It’s been a hot topic for the month, but to be frank, we’re not concerned. We’re here because we believe in the technology and the impact it will have, not because of our interest in semantics. One thing is for sure, connotations are derived from associations. The negative opinions that have followed the activities of 2017-2018 are changing as traditional and reputable entities begin to get their feet wet. It seems that the key players now understand that crypto and blockchain are two very different things.
I hope you have found this edition useful. If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact us.
