DIGITAL ASSETS: A TRULY ATTRACTIVE INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY

INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY

For several years, technology has offered investors an increasingly attractive investment opportunity. Although still in its infancy, blockchain technology is one of the most exciting innovations of our time.

It is erecting a new model that has the potential to revolutionize most industries, from financial services to supply chains. On the one hand, it makes it possible to reduce costs, rationalize so-called “traditional” distribution channels and eliminate the need for “trusted” intermediaries.

On the other hand, it makes automation, decentralization and transparency possible thanks to its smart contracts and its public registry capabilities.

Priority to Blockchain

Far from being a passing fad, blockchain seems to be set to stay. Although innovation is mainly supported by startups in the sector, a growing number of large companies are beginning to assess the opportunities and possible synergies at play.

According to a study carried out by Deloitte 2 in 2018 among 1,000 executives in nine sectors and seven countries, 74% of respondents said their organization finds the use of blockchain “convincing” .

Most of the organizations like Bayment surveyed now see blockchain as a priority investment, with 95% of them investing or intending to invest in this nascent technology.

Bipolarity of the market

While everyone agrees on the many benefits and applications that blockchain technology offers, no one has yet commented on the role of digital assets or tokens.

As is often the case with new technology, it is difficult to fully appreciate its future opportunities and implications. This is all the more true for the blockchain, given the very small number of specialists who have sufficient knowledge of this technology. A lot of people just don’t get the point.

Two clear-cut visions that are opposed:

  • Those who believe that the blockchain will revolutionize the whole society Beyond the applications in the financial industry that the majority of potential investors are aware of, many believe that digital assets can have an impact on social order, power relations, wealth, opportunities, as well as other aspects like censorship, transparency and many other interactions within society.
  • Those who do not believe in such a revolution and who believe that the financial system will continue to function as it always has. Digital assets play a limited role in society. The social order will not be upset, but blockchain can offer certain sectors applications that will allow them to become more efficient.
