Blockchain Tokenization: What lies ahead
The blockchain technology is unarguably one of the biggest innovations of our times. – It is the invention of a person or group of people known by the name or pseudonym, Satoshi Nakamoto. Since its inception, it has evolved into something greater, while the main question remains: What is Blockchain?
In the simplest terms, the blockchain is a time-stamped series of immutable record of data managed by cluster of computers not owned by any single entity, therefore decentralized. Each data block is secured and bound to each other using the chain (i.e. cryptographic principles).
Today, a lot of people have already heard about the Blockchain technology and what it can offer. It is commonly being used in payments, money transfer, purchases, trading, and other related services, but we can fairly assume that there is a great possibility that everything like stocks, cash, dividends, bonds, precious metals, houses or products can and will be tokenized in the near future. In fact, some companies are already running their businesses on the blockchain while many others are considering moving part of their processes on to this new technology.

Blockchain technology offers an alternative to the traditional investment methods, as it allows investors around the world to have access to the underlying digital currency of blockchain based projects in a cheaper, secure and faster way. Moreover, it doesn’t just offer tokenization; blockchain technology is being used in finance and information management, as well as other fields; it is believed that the power of decentralization can reshape the current financial systems and help implementing a secure and transparent way of accessing information, financial transactions and your data.
Older generations might be skeptical about the this new technology and what it offers. However, more and more people are joining this revolution and one could think that the mass adoption of this tech is not impossible; sooner or later, the use of the Blockchain technology might take over old systems, just like it happened with the Internet or Email services.
