The Tokenization of Securities

Yael Tamar, CMO and co-founder of SolidBlock, the issuance platform for digital securities, interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim.

In this conversation, they talk about The tokenization of securities, starting with the pioneering use case of real estate, where SolidBlock in 2018, in collaboration with its partners, created Aspen Coin to finance the renovation of the St. Regis Aspen Resort, a 179-room luxury hotel. We spend some time discussing the basics of securitization and tokenization before moving to discussing how the deepening digitization creates financial transformation as well. Lastly, we discuss the ever present need for information on blockchain developments. Yael herself started the site Top of Blockchain.

The takeaway is that the tokenization of securities has only just begun. Given its novelty, even real estate will take some time to onboard at scale to such a platform. However, when it does, the true revolution of fractionalized ownership and tradeability will enable swaths of new, emerging investors to enter the market, even from very low starting amounts. This could prove transformational for the emerging markets in Asia, South America and even Africa.
