Asset Tokenization: Why it will Thrive in Europe
By: Radoslav Dragov, Libor DvorakSenior Research Analyst, IT Services, Central and Eastern Europe
This IDC Market Presentation discusses Europe's general approach to asset tokenization. This act of creating a digital representation of a financial or real asset on a distributed ledger can unlock trillions in illiquid assets, giving retail investors access to investments with previously high minimum capital requirements (thanks to fractional ownership) or the ability to settle trades on a distributed ledger instantly. This document examines how the level blockchain adoption, the extensiveness of the asset tokenization ecosystem, high development of financial markets, and upcoming generally favorable regulation in the European region can create a hotbed for developing and innovating on asset tokenization.
