Digital assets are a type of digital currency that can be used in online transactions. The best way to define a digital asset is that it is an asset that exists in the form of electronic data. These assets can include cryptocurrencies, tokens, smart contracts, NFTs, etc. In recent months, it seems that the buzz around digital assets has been growing, with considerable interest in NFTs and other digitized products. Another factor is the ongoing discussions around an adaptation of Web 3.0 which should help further decentralize and democratize the Internet.

What are the benefits of digital assets?

The first advantage of digital assets is that they are decentralized. This means that there is no centralized authority controlling them. They also have a transparent ledger which ensures that all transactions are recorded and cannot be modified or tampered with after the fact.

Another advantage of digital assets is that they have low transaction fees, which makes them more affordable for sellers and buyers. This is especially true when compared to traditional financial institutions such as banks that charge high transaction fees for international payments, wire transfers, etc.

We are currently seeing emerging startups like exberry, which provide a cloud-native SaaS platform for digital asset marketplaces. They are asset agnostic, which means their platform can support any type of asset and create a market around it. It helps free people from centralized markets where they have no say and are subject to rules and regulations.

“By enabling the trading industry to progress and overcome legacy barriers through their matching and trading technology, our platform enables new players to join the business world without any technological, operational and financial barriers. ” Says co-founder and CEO Guy Melamed.

Problems with traditional industries and how several startups are closing the gap

Traditional industries face many challenges. Their centralized structures are no longer as efficient as before. A new business model is needed to survive in the future.

The challenges that traditional industries face can be divided into three categories:

  • Economic challenges: Traditional industries have been grappling with economic challenges for decades. They are no longer able to compete with new emerging technologies.
  • Environmental challenges: Traditional industries have created an environmental disaster by using fossil fuels and polluting the environment in the process. The world has realized this and is looking for alternatives like clean energy, which will make it difficult for traditional industries to continue their practices, or they have to find a way to change them.
  • Social challenges: People seek freedom from enforced regulations that they disagreed on. We see how optimistic younger generations are about the adaptation of Web 3.0 and the ability to communicate and express themselves effectively without giving up their privacy.

We see startups like Crymbo emerging, bridging the gap between traditional and digital by enabling financial institutions to provide their customers with easy plug and play access to digital assets.

We’re also seeing something similar outside of finance, with startups like Storycards offering publishers the ability to easily create engagement products on their site, to combat third-party cookie removal, as well as to help provide a better, more personalized experience for website visitors.

Advantages of decentralized economies over centralized economies

Decentralized economies are more efficient than centralized economies because they have better cash flow and have a more robust system. Centralized economies are less efficient because the money supply is controlled by a central authority, which means there is no cash flow. It also means that the central authority can control the economy, making it easier for them to implement policies that may not be in the best interests of their citizens.

We also see how a post-pandemic environment helps to continue the adoption of decentralization, and why younger generations are, in a sense, abandoning traditional investments.

Conclusion: How to Leverage the Benefits of Digital Assets in the Market

According to this CNBC Millionaire Survey, nearly half of millennial millionaires have at least 25% of their wealth in cryptocurrencies. This research shows that crypto is a generation gap in the creation of new wealth, as young investors have been able to earn vast fortunes and grow their investments thanks to the surge in the price of bitcoin. Now, with easier access to digital assets ranging from crypto to NFTs, there is a vast opportunity for investors, startups, developers, and creators to monetize their work, art, and products around decentralized infrastructure. suitable for rapid growth. technologies and emerging markets.
