Matt, tokens and whiskey

All in all, tokenization is a digital certification process of the ownership of something. Theoretically it is possible to tokenize anything, whether it is goods, physical objects or rights. The ownership of these things can be caught on a blockchain. Holding assets as tokens on such a decentralized data bank has many advantages. First of all, digital assets don’t need banks, stock exchanges, intermediaries and brokers, which makes the transaction handling by far quicker and cheaper. There are no bank transfers needed, which usually take several days and the technology guarantees transparent transmission of one’s funds, due to digital traceability. All transactions are recorded transparently, immutable, traceable and accessible at all times for all parties involved, in real time. 

These are just some examples why the tokenization of assets is playing a more and more important role for our community. Products containing limited editions, such as sneakers and whiskey have turned out to be a crisis resistant asset class. Zilliqa tokenized a rare whisky collection recently with the title “Casks of Distinction”. This gives accredited investors the chance to own a part of these previously illiquid assets. When the whiskey is being bottled, investors can receive their cash value or alternatively a bottle of whiskey for a token. Learn more about the function and efficiency of this process in Matt´s keynote at the BLOCKCHANCE EUROPE 2021 conference.


Matt chose a very exciting topic for this Keynote at the BLOCKCHANCE EUROPE 2021 conference. Be there, when he presents a digital assets case study on the tokenization of Scottish whisky barrels.
