Real World Asset Tokenization – and Global Regulations
Last week DigiShares hosted a webinar on global regulation. There was a surprising large number of participants, considering the topic was legal considerations and regulation in relation to tokenization and the five main speakers were lawyers from different regions, including Germany, Singapore, the UK, Switzerland and the US. It is great that issuers and asset owners appreciate the necessity in working closely with a legal partner when embarking on a tokenization project.

A key take-away from the presentations was that regulation is increasingly supportive of tokenization. Tokenization embraces securities regulation and is not opposed to regulation such as other parts of the crypto ecosystem. As long as asset owners follow securities regulation, guidance issued by regulators, and the guidance of their legal partners, tokenization of real-world assets can be safely carried out with no or very low legal risk. Another take-away was that it is now obvious that there are legal companies with experience advising on tokenization projects and increasingly view such projects are routine matters. The third and final take-away was that all five legal experts presenting at the webinar see increasing interest in tokenization and view the longer-term potential of the space as very significant.

These views are very much aligned with DigiShares' perspective. We constantly monitor more than 30 jurisdictions globally for regulatory developments and the overall feeling is that regulators are interested in tokenization and want to enable it. They see tokenization as a natural extension to the existing process of digitization that has been ongoing in the financial markets for many years. In fact, the best regulators view a "tokenization security" as just a "digital security" using a peculiar underlying technological infrastructure that provides special benefits in relation to security, transaction logging, transparency, etc.

So, the world is opening up to tokenization. Reach out to us if you want to discuss a tokenization project in your jurisdiction at [email protected]

Pacio Launches Tokenization Project
Article | One Token Over The Line: Are NFTs The Future Of Buying And Selling Real Estate?
"But first, to make NFT-backed sales of real estate possible on a widespread basis, they need to be allowed and standardized across a wide variety of municipalities. Like many tech firms attempting to change the way homes are sold, there is some dependence on the sophistication of local government.

Others are finding different ways to make the buying and selling process more high-tech in a way that doesn't require government intervention. Tokenization is a process that splits the shares of an asset into numerous tokens that can be sold more quickly via digital currency and blockchain technology. DigiShares CEO Claus Skaaning compared the process to a "do-it-yourself REIT," or a real estate asset trust, which turns the shares into digital assets while helping increase liquidity and democratize access to commercial property investment.

So far, his firm has helped investors tokenize many different assets, including Myra Park, a 250-unit apartment project near Dallas developed by MarketSpace Capital. He sees NFTs as being a little too risky right now. "
