My article on “tokenization” of real world assets was published by Bitcoin Magazine on Friday.

From the introduction:

“Tokenization is the process of converting rights to an asset into a digital token on a blockchain. There is great interest by financial intermediaries and technologists around the world in figuring out how to move real-world assets onto blockchains to gain the advantages of Bitcoin while keeping the characteristics of the asset.”

The article builds on a talk I gave at OsgoodePD's blockchain law event a couple weeks ago. I'll be discussing these issues further at an OTC derivatives event on Wednesday.
