What is asset tokenization? And how can it be beneficial in the long run?

With digitally native financial products becoming more common on our everyday lives, real life assets are also being “digitalized”, i.e., its trade has been done on digital channels via asset tokenization.

What exactly are security tokens, and how are they different from cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum?

By definition, digital native security are securities which are deployed on the blockchain as a financial instrument, just like any other financial instrument or bone structure, product, equities, anything except for its security token format. The tokens that are built natively on blockchain are the financial instrument and are completely bypassed with traditional bonds, for instance, the way they could exist in traditional market infrastructure.

Regulators and Legislators have noticed this as well, and have since begun defining the lexicon within their jurisdiction’s laws to accommodate this new kind of products and services.
