The term digital asset comes from English and means digital asset or digital bond.
The digital asset is mapped on the blockchain in the form of a token. It represents the image of a physical asset and thus the ownership right to a bond, as well as the right to share in profits or revenue. It can also represent a repayment obligation.
Digital bonds are thus the digitised form of securities such as bonds, fund shares and mortgage bonds. These securities once had to be issued by means of a paper certificate. Recently, however, they may also be issued by means of tokenisation – with a deposit in an electronic register. This can be kept centrally by a custodian bank or – like CROWDLITOKEN – stored decentrally as crypto-securities via blockchain. This sounds modern, but it issecure and agile – so it fits perfectly into today’s economic environment.
Physical assets such as real estate, securities, precious metals or other financial assets such as wines and classic cars can be mapped as a digital asset on the blockchain.
A digital asset such as the CROWDLITOKEN (CRT) is not a cryptocurrency.
