What are tokenised securities?
The Currency.com crypto exchange is uniting the worlds of crypto and traditional assets. Tokenised securities prove themselves as an effective solution.
Tokenisation is the process of materialising the ownership in a security through the issuance of a “token” registered on distributed ledger technology infrastructure.
Tokenised securities are tokens that correspond to the value of a particular underlying asset* (e.g. a GOOGL share, gold, oil, etc). When the real asset’s price rises, so does its tokenised version. When the real asset’s price drops, the tokenised security follows. As such, tokenised securities trading will bring you the same chances for profit as traditional assets.
For example, a TSLA.CX token mirrors the performance of a Tesla share on the Nasdaq. Users of a tokenised securities exchange use their cryptocurrency holdings to buy an TSLA.CX token and trade it like they would trade a Tesla share itself. Moreover, the trades are executed with the power, openness and speed of blockchain.
A tokenised security is a blockchain-powered tradable financial asset, which meets all the regulatory requirements of the country it is born in. The best thing here is that tokenised securities allow you to trade and profit from the underlying market price of traditional assets using your crypto holdings. You no longer need to exchange them to fiat.
A security, or a financial instrument that holds some type of monetary value. It can represent ownership in a company’s stock, a creditor relationship with an entity through a bond, or rights to ownership as represented by an option.
