Introduction to Tokenization

The blockchain community has been passing around the concept of tokenization of real-world assets for years now. The idea behind tokenization is quite simple. You take any real-world asset and tokenize it by creating digital representations of these assets called tokens using distributed ledger technology like blockchain. It does not matter if the asset is tangible or intangible. This means you can tokenize practically anything under the sun.

There are several reasons why asset owners might want to consider tokenizing their assets but it all boils down to cost savings and adding liquidity to assets that can be considered illiquid…

Contracts, transactions, and the records of them are among the defining structures in our economic, legal, and political systems. They protect assets and set organizational boundaries. They establish and verify identities and chronicle events.

Throughout the years these structures have become overly dependent on centralized systems that have evolved into trusted gatekeepers of data and information. However, they are prone to a single point of failure, censorship, and other security breaches.

Blockchain promises to solve these problems. The technology at the heart of bitcoin and other virtual currencies, blockchain is an open, distributed ledger that can record transactions between two…


Blockchain has become one of the most recognizable emerging technologies over the last decade. This is due in part to the immense popularity of bitcoin that has become a viable alternative to the prevalent centralized financial structures we have today.

Its success in disrupting such a powerful industry has titillated the curiosity of many early adopters and innovators. This eventually led to the development and use of blockchain in various industries beyond its initial purpose.

Last month one of the leading centralized exchanges (CEX) in the world, OKEx have decided to burn 700 million unissued OKB, the exchange’s utility token. The OKEx management also revealed that no more additional issuance of the utility token in the future, making the digital asset deflationary and the first of its kind that is fully circulated.

To put it simply, DeFi are financial services and products that are built on top of distributed ledger technology (DLT).

Have you ever wondered why with all the risks and problems associated with using centralized exchanges (CEX) a lot of people are still using them? If you look at the many cryptocurrency data aggregation sites it is almost a guarantee that CEXs will always have a much higher trading volume than any other alternative trading venues such as decentralized exchanges (DEX). But are CEXs better? Given the history of security breaches, CEXs have been identified as one of the weakest links in terms of security in the cryptocurrency industry, hence the short answer is an emphatic no.
