The establishment is to pursue the goal and vision to formulate a standard for global tokenization framework in a compliant and transparent way.
Tokenization is the process of converting rights or a unit of asset ownership into a digital token on a blockchain. It can be applied to regulated financial instruments such as equities and bonds, physical assets such as real estate and art. Key benefits that could be enabled by tokenization include increased liquidity, reduced cost, faster settlement, better compliance and increased transparency. Tokenization has the potential to transform the market by opening investments to a wider pool of investors and facilitating the innovation of new product offerings. Tokens can also be traded on appropriate secondary markets.
The establishment of the IX Asia Tokenisation Advisory Committee ("Advisory Committee”) is to help us to pursue the goal and vision to formulate a standard for global tokenization framework in a compliant and transparent way. The key roles of the Advisory Committee is to formulate the guideline and reference for tokenization in terms of infrastructure, business financial stability, sustainability, internal control and classification. The Advisory Committee is comprised of industry recognised leaders from blockchain consultancy, sustainable projects and field in Art industry.
The initial focus of the Advisory Committee will be mainly on green, public projects and art tokens. Covid 19 is a wakeup call for our world and shows us that something needs to be done sooner than later. IX Asia Indexes sees the current challenges looming with green and sustainability-linked projects and investments to receive sustainable funding.
Today we are proud to welcome five members to this IX Asia Tokenisation Advisory Committee and thank them for their partnership.
