Tokenization as an End-to-End Concept
Tokenization can be viewed as the process of converting an asset into tokens, or the act of representing an asset with tokens. In more than 90% of all tokenization projects, the asset is first "securitized", i.e., an SPV (Special Purpose Vehicle), a company structure, is created to own the asset, and then the shares of that SPV are tokenized. So, the tokens will represent shares, i.e., tokenized shares. In a few cases and in some countries where tokenized shares have not yet been clarified from a regulatory perspective, bonds are used instead of shares. Also, in a very few cases, an investment contract has been tokenized instead of a share. This can be used to tokenize a participation right, a revenue share, profit share, or even the underlying title or deed to a property. We haven't seen this very much since it is more complicated from a legal perspective and it is also more difficult for investors to understand.

However, tokenization is not just tokenization as we will understand in our next webinar. It is much more than that. It is a business, legal and technical process involving many decisions, concerning the legal framework and setup, technical considerations related to integration, and business decisions relating to type of investors, private or public sale, ticket size, etc., etc., etc.

DigiShares is a highly specialized software company. We focus on delivering best in class software and provide relatively few services in addition to the software. We essentially provide only those services that are required for us to deliver a good experience and good value. All other services are outsourced to highly qualified consultancy partners who can help clients plan and manage the tokenization projects. The consultancy partners will typically have partnerships with custodians, exchange partners, legal partners, etc. and will be able to assist the client in making informed decisions as well as managing the project. A tokenization project can be quite complex and can also have a duration of up to 3-6 months.

At our next webinar we will see presentations from a number of our consultancy partners who are all capable of assisting clients with the above services and fill in the gaps to ensure an end-to-end experience.

DigiShares Annouces Tokenization of Real-World Assets on Binance Smart Chain
DigiShares has recently announced that their platform for real estate tokenization now fully supports the Binance Smart Chain for both token minting, token trading, tokenized share cap table management, as well as payment of dividends.

With the DigiShares Token Studio it is now possible to tokenize any real-world asset in a compliant manner, such that the legal entity and asset are legally linked with the token. The typical scenario is to tokenize the shares of a company that owns the asset and typical project sizes vary between $1-100m.

The most highly tokenized asset class is clearly real estate, however, many other types of assets are increasingly tokenized, such as energy and renewables projects, mining operations, infrastructure, objets d'art, collectibles, private equity, VC funds, and startup investments.
