[Lecture Series HS20] Tokenization: From Crypto Assets to Euro-on-Blockchain

Abstract

Once the financial infrastructure is created for more effective value transfers, many positive spill-over effects will follow. This lecture explains the principle of tokenization, Euro-on-blockchain (“Digital Euro”), applications of smart contracts, standardization of token markets. Also, a specific focus is made on the Liechtenstein Blockchain Act. Based on this framework, any right can be “tokenized” which enables the basis for future business models of the digital economy (e.g. tokenization of machines; fractional ownership; portfolios of tokenized assets).

The lecture deals with the transformation the financial sector is going to face with the blockchain technology. Not only will structural changes and their benefits be explained in the light of recent developments such as the Liechtenstein Blockchain Act, the interactions between smart contracts and tokens as well as business model perspectives resulting from them will be taken into account. Smart contract platforms, tokenization and tomorrows flow of money and resulting opportunities from those and the DLT infrastructure in general are covered, too.
