Revolutionizing Markets: BlackRock CEO Larry Fink Believes in Tokenization of Securities
"I believe the next evolution of the markets will be the tokenization of securities,"said Fink.
Tokenization of Securities: The Next Evolution of Markets
Fink believes that tokenization of securities is the next big thing in the evolution of investing, following crypto-exchange-traded funds (ETFs). He predicts that distributed ledgers will enable "instant settlement" without the need for intermediaries like banks. This would be made possible by the transparent nature of distributed ledgers, which show every owner and seller of securities.
Fink is skeptical about the CeFi token market and believes that most of the companies in this space will eventually leave the market. Despite the fact that the token capitalization of centralized exchanges such as Binance Coin and Crypto.com is over $57 billion, out of a total market capitalization of $862 billion, Fink remains cautious.
BlackRock and Blockchain
In September, BlackRock launched an ETF for shares of companies working with blockchain technology. The ETF enables investors to gain exposure to companies that are directly or indirectly involved in the blockchain ecosystem. Fink sees great potential in blockchain technology, believing that it will revolutionize the financial industry in the coming years.
