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.
