  • Digital assets decrypted

    There are thousands of different digital assets currently traded across more than a hundred exchanges. But what are digital assets?

    Digital assets are based on distributed ledger technology, which comprises a database that is shared and updated independently by participants across a large network. Cryptocurrencies like bitcoin are one type of digital asset. Like traditional currencies, they serve as a store of value, with bitcoin becoming known as "digital gold".

    Digital assets can also be similar to shared applications that are a technology platform or perform specific functions. Use cases include tracking land ownership or music rights, or acting as a platform for "smart contracts".
