Tokenization allowed fractional ownership, allowing investors to participate for a minimum amount of 5,000 USDC.

According to Stobox, token holders can benefit from discounts at Candela’s properties, access to special events, and rental returns.

Farmland Assets 

In 2022, Stobox launched an STO for a US-based agricultural firm called Farmland Assets.

The Future of RWA Tokenization

RWA tokenization is a popular crypto market narrative that is gaining popularity and momentum. Many crypto industry insiders believe that the global audience is finally understanding the benefits of representing real-world assets such as real estate, fine art, credit, treasury bonds and notes, and precious metals as digital tokens on a blockchain.

We are seeing an encouraging trend of traditional finance companies tapping the power of blockchain technology to leverage the benefits of fractionalized ownership, decentralized trading, and property rights transparency.

Tokenization enables the ownership rights of illiquid assets such as real estate and fine art to be broken down into thousands of digital tokens. Tokenization not only brings down the entry barrier for small investors but also allows these illiquid assets to trade seamlessly and instantaneously in the form of tokens on the blockchain.

For intangible assets such as copyrights, trademarks, and patents, tokenization allows intellectual property to be stored immutably and verified – permissionlessly on the blockchain.

Meanwhile, tokenization of credit markets allows bond issuers to reach an audience that is not restricted by geographies.

It is not difficult to see the potential of RWA tokenization. It comes as no surprise that the token has seen immense interest in 2023, having gained over 5500% in 2023.

We also mentioned RWA tokenization as one of the top 5 crypto market trends and technologies to watch out for in 2024.

The Bottom Line

We will end this article with an important reminder that a cryptocurrency’s past performance does not guarantee future returns. With this in mind, we urge readers to do their own research (DYOR) and to be mindful of fear-of-missing-out (FOMO) when investing in cryptocurrencies. Remember, cryptocurrencies are extremely volatile and considered risky investments.
