What is a Crypto Asset & Token?

Traditional assets store value and provide economic benefits while the rights of ownership are enforced by institutions. Crypto assets are a new class of assets, which combines the advantages of digitalisation while the right of ownership is cryptographically secured.

What is a Crypto Currency?

Crypto currencies can provide store of value or function as means of payments. Like fiat currencies, its value is based on trust. However, in contrast to traditional currencies, they are not backed up by a centralized institution and are not connected to a national economy. They are secured on a blockchain and their values are driven by market demand and expectations. Each crypto currency has its own monetary policy and specific use. Some are more innovative than other while more popular ones are built on their head start and network effect.

What are Crypto Commodities?

Commodities are defined as raw materials or other items such as goods or services that provide value or an economical benefit. Crypto commodities can be understood as digital utility-tokens on a blockchain which represent physical items. Blockchains require time, computer-power and electricity to secure crypto commodities. For instance, Ether provides access to a decentralized digital world that runs smart contracts. This could empower a decentralized economy on the web with lowered entry barriers for everyone.

Bitcoin and other crypto assets

Industrial solutions

Which industries are leading regarding machine-2-machine payments, supply chain finance or process automation? How can machines, sensors, cars and their cash flows be tokenized?

Decentralized finance (DeFi)

What will be DeFi’s impact on traditional capital markets? Which protocols should be regarded? Do we witness the emergence of the future capital market? How can it be regulated?


How can securities, equity, debt and other assets be tokenized? What is the status quo for the primary market and the secondary market?

Investors and venture capital

Will STOs and tokens disrupt traditional venture capital? What are VCs’ preferences for 2020?

Asset management

Are digital assets “institutional ready”? Is Bitcoin an interesting investment target, or not? Which new business models exist for asset managers and brokers?

International perspective

What types of tokens exist and how should they be regulated? Will China, the USA or Europe be the “blockchain continent”?
