A novel framework for understanding tokenized asset finance.
The Spectrum of Tokenization offers a novel and comprehensive framework for understanding tokenized asset finance. Until this point, assets have been characterized in a binary fashion, as either tokenized or not tokenized. However, as tokenized asset markets evolve, this binary characterization is both limiting and outdated.
In tokenized asset markets today, there exists a spectrum of ways that assets and financial relationships can be digitized; no longer are assets confined to either offchain or onchain realms, but rather, can interface with both worlds in varying ways and capacities. As such, we need an updated way to characterize and discuss tokenized asset finance.
We created the Spectrum of Tokenization with this purpose in mind, and with the hope that it will foster long-standing common dialogue and understanding amongst stakeholders.
