Tokenization is increasingly about liquidity. The illiquidity premium is 20-30%. This means that just by making an asset liquid, you can increase its value by 20-30%. In the tokenization space there are many factors that reduce friction and hence improve liquidity, such as fractionalization, automation of compliance and governance, DIY crowdfunding, but of course also direct liquidity providers, such as DigiShares' built-in bulletin board for internal trading, the regulated exchanges that are dominating the market, as well as potential future DeFi native and interoperable exchanges such as RealEstate.Exchange.

Next week DigiShares hosts a webinar where the top security token exchanges are for the first time giving their views on liquidity and the future of the tokenization industry as well as getting on a panel together to respond to questions from the audience. Also, we are announcing the first listing of one of our clients, MarketSpace Capital, on a regulated exchange, tZero, see the press release further below. We can facilitate a similar process for other clients and we have similar partnerships with the other exchanges to integrate and list the assets of our clients. We view the DigiShares platform as a gateway to liquidity and a control panel to track the share cap table and to designate token allocations to be listed and traded on different exchanges.

Industry outsiders have criticized the slow investor uptake of STOs and tokenization projects over the last few years and the slow development of liquidity. However, from a DigiShares perspective, we truly believe that 2022 will be the year of liquidity. We see massive investments flow into the space and we see interest from many of our clients in getting their assets listed. Also, we see the traditional exchanges very interested in the security token space from a technology and infrastructure point of view and as some may have seen, ICE (Intercontinental Exchange), the mother company of Nasdaq, just took a strategic investment in tZero. That's not coincidental but a sign of things to come!

DigiShares at Virtual Assets: taking Luxembourg one step further
Virtual assets have undoubtedly become an increasingly hot topic over the last years, with market players showing an increasing interest in practical applications across various sectors, notably in the financial sector.

The growing importance of virtual assets and emerging challenges linked to these have led to several measures, both at national and European levels. In Luxembourg, institutions such at the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF) and the Luxembourg Stock Exchange (LuxSE) have expressed their willingness to take Luxembourg one step further towards digital transformation through a number of concrete initiatives.

CMS Luxembourg is organising a webinar to address these recent developments and get a grasp on the current views and experiences from various market players, who will participate in an interactive panel discussion on this topic.

Speakers and panel will include specialists from Clearstream, Société Générale, DigiShares, Tokeny Solutions and the Luxembourg Stock Exchange.

This webinar will, inter alia, tackle the following topics:
• The CSSF's questions and answer (Q&As) on virtual assets updated on 4 January 2022;
• The key takeaways of the new guidelines issued on 31 January 2022 by the LuxSE regarding the registration of certain distributed ledger-technology (DLT) financial instruments;
• The practical implications of the CSSF's white paper published on 24 January 2022, aimed at guiding stakeholders in the use of a DLT in the provision of their services;
• Discussion on the maturity of the market based on practical experience.
