Digital assets: know the types that can be tokenized!

At a time when innovating has become a watchword for companies to gain competitiveness. It is necessary to find solutions that combine cutting-edge technology and simplicity, and digital assets stand out as alternatives.

High technology and agile and uncomplicated processes are the combination that everyone expects to facilitate a day full of commitments, in addition to an even more important third: low cost or none.

Cryptocurrencies are increasingly successful because they combine these three factors within an environment of total security and are the precursors of a concept that is slowly conquering the business world: digital assets or cryptoassets .

But are digital coins and real estate tokens the same thing?

Are artwork tokens cryptoactive?

Understanding these terminologies and the differences between them is critical to getting the best result from each solution. And they are simpler to understand than they seem.

Therefore, BLOCKBR prepared this article to help understand and show the potential of tokens and cryptocurrencies for different businesses!

WHAT ARE DIGITAL ASSETS?

We can say that digital assets are the forms of assets of people and companies that are transacted in digital format, on digital platforms and are also called intangible assets .

This definition makes the best distinction in relation to physical or tangible assets – those that can be physically owned – real estate, vehicles, equipment, furniture, physical gold reserves, cash and others.

DIGITAL ASSETS ARE MUCH MORE THAN CRYPTOCURRENCY

When talking about digital assets , it is normal to think that they began to exist with the creation of bitcoin . However, the world of digital assets is broader.

It includes digital products that have active status in the business world as they are currently considered corporate assets and receive all digital security care.

See some examples.

  • Website and e-commerce store;
  • Profiles on social networks;
  • Images and videos;
  • Internet content (yes, blogs and ebooks are digital assets);
  • Patents and image rights.

These are items that play such a crucial role in today’s companies: trucks in a transport company or boilers in a steel mill.

WHAT ARE DIGITAL FINANCIAL ASSETS?

It is in this category that the assets that we are used to calling financial products (traditional and modern) and crypto -assets – the new and revolutionary class of digital assets are found.

We can highlight as financial digital assets :

  • Company shares;
  • Future dividends and credits;
  • Score in frequent flyer programs;
  • Scores in online games;
  • Cryptocurrencies ;
  • Tokens .

In this way, digital currencies and tokens are considered financial digital assets .

O QUE SÃO AS CRIPTOMOEDAS (DIGITAL COINS)

 

WHAT ARE CRYPTOCURRENCIES (DIGITAL COINS)

They are encrypted files , with a store of value , produced digitally in a high-tech environment – the blockchain – with the aim of being used as a means of payment for transactions exclusively online.

Digital currencies support peer-to-peer transactions – trades or transfers made directly between the seller’s and buyer’s digital wallets :

  • With no geographical barrier, they can be used anywhere in the world;
  • No admission and conversion control;
  • No imposition of bank fees and taxes.

Each cryptocurrency is created and traded exclusively on its specific blockchainbitcoin (BTC) is produced on the Bitcoin network , the first known blockchain .

WHAT ARE TOKENS?

Tokens are encrypted files produced digitally on a blockchain network and function as digital representations of real goods , whether physical or digital, in market operations.

Digital currencies are a kind of token but not every token is a digital currency. They differ in other characteristics and objectives.

  • Cryptocurrency is a means of digital payment;
  • The token represents a good to be traded;
  • It is possible to buy tokens with digital currencies.

Unlike digital currencies , tokenized assets can be created on the most technically or cost-effective block network for the project.

The Ethereum network currently houses the vast majority of tokenization projects on the market that range from artwork to real estate, through race horses and even the career of an artist!

HOW IS TOKENIZATION REVOLUTIONING BUSINESS?

The token emerged as an alternative for companies to raise funds by trading assets with important advantages:

  • More security with a high security environment;
  • Credibility with the immutability of transactions;
  • Greater liquidity and project speed with asset splitting,
  • Transparency with public and immutable transactions.

However, markets have found several benefits using tokenization technology for a number of other strategic objectives. Here are some examples of how businesses are using tokens !

TOKENIZATION IN THE HEALTH SECTOR

In addition to being highly bureaucratized, the healthcare industry suffers from a crucial issue that affects performance: generating clinical histories that can be viewed and used anywhere in the world.

Tokenization allows you to create files with all patient data and speed up decisions that can be crucial, without relying on searching and sending documents, in addition to secure systems for scheduling appointments and exams.

TOKENIZATION IN AGRIBUSINESS

Agribusiness companies can benefit in their results from some tokenization projects in the field , among them:

  • Tokenize future crop rights , herd milk production and others;
  • Using blockchain tokens to generate masses of data that improve the management of the production chain – one of the most complex on the market.

TOKENIZATION IN THE SPORTS MARKET

The sports sector is one of the markets that most invest in the use of tokens and the keyword here is fan token – a utility token that allows fundraising in exchange for benefits to investors/fans.

The best example of a tokenization project was PSG’s payment of part of the signing of the player Lionel Messi with an amount of fan tokens.

This action tripled the market value of the digital asset .

TOKENIZATION IN LOGISTICS

There is no better marriage than the complexity of a supply chain and a tokenization solution , with tracking of all processes and activities through tokens on a blockchain .

With a smart contract within the network, it is possible to monitor the results and compare them with metrics, in addition to being alerted about operational risks (route, loads) and significant cost deviations (freight, fuel, overtime).

REAL ESTATE TOKENIZATION

The use of tokens in the real estate market is already a reality, including in Brazil, with a series of initiatives by developers tokenizing land, properties in the plant or ready.

Fundraising , offering highly valued goods, is the main objective of the sector, which on the other hand gains from greater liquidity by dividing assets . In addition, it is possible to generate rental income with idle and commercial common spaces in condominiums.

These are just some of the examples of how tokenization can leverage the performance and results of companies in the most diverse sectors. Isn’t it time for your business to know this revolutionary solution?
