Crypto Assets in the Real World

Crypto assets and tokenized real-world assets are becoming new types of asset classes that retail investors and family offices are increasingly interested in.

A recent survey by the ECB found that 10% of Eurozone households already own crypto assets with an even larger percentage expecting to acquire crypto tokens by the end of year. In addition, in 2022 UK-based family offices have increased their exposure to crypto assets to over 3% according to a recent CoinShares survey.

With crypto assets becoming omnipresent, regulatory and tax questions become more pressing. Apart from crypto-native assets, through the process of tokenization, traditionally illiquid real-world assets are also finding their way to blockchain networks, unlocking financial value and creating opportunities for individuals and companies.

In this webinar we cover:

  • What does the Crypto assets landscape look like?
  • How is decentralized finance absorbing real-world assets?
  • What are the legal and taxation implications?
  • How can Refinitiv help you stay up-to-date with crypto market data and news?

Refinitiv in partnership @O2K Netherlands will answer these questions and more.
