Guy Hirsch, Managing rector of eToro U.S., sees the increased interest and investments in Digital Assets as a clear “generation shift."

He stated via press release: “we’re seeing the beginning of a generational shift in trust from traditional stock exchanges to crypto exchanges. At the heart of this change are the asset classes themselves.

Younger investors’ experience with the stock market has seen a great deal of loss of trust, with the fall of Lehman brothers...” One of the benefits of people investing in digital assets is that companies can know who their actual shareholders are and so have a relationship with them, and reward so offer them shareholder perks e.g. discounts off goods and services. This is almost impossible when shares are held as they currently are, in nominee structures.

Potentially companies could have no need for share registrars saving them money, as shareholders records can be updated in Real Time, which in turn would help regulators know who owns what which at the moment is impossible for a listed quoted company.

There are many projects being implemented using Blockchain technology.

The creation of tokens, a new asset class, allows tokens, backed by equities, bonds, property, FX, commodities, etc. to be offered and traded potentially 24/7 in a digital fashion enabling asset managers to offer new types of funds. To date, the focus has been more about how technology is being used to reduce the onboarding costs of KYC and AML. Firms like Coinfirm and Blockpass can help with individuals, and if you are when dealing with corporates that require real-time ongoing KYC monitoring the Kompany are able to help. Blockchain technology can help to solve the problems of dispute resolution and improve the time it takes to solve discrepancies. The consensus-based nature of the technology means that updates cannot occur to asset records without agreement from all relevant parties.

Digital assets such as Security Tokens will also allow preauthorization checks before a trade is executed and even enable dividends and rental income on property funds to be paid based on the number of MINUTES an investor as held the assets. Both of these are impossible in today’s analog markets!
