Panel Discussions

Topic 1: “The Developments and Outlook of Digital Assets”

In the past decades, when investors looked to monetize an asset, they would securitize it. Some studies claimed with more people trading it, higher information value could lead to fairer pricing. Entering the fintech age, digitalizing the assets has become a popular approach. This panel looks to discuss what assets can be digitalized, the advantages of digitalizing various assets and the room for future development of digitalization.
