Asset tokenisation refers to the process of converting real assets into digital assets and thus converting the ownership rights of a particular asset into a digital token.
¿What's the asset tokenisation?
A digital token is a term that refers to a unit of value issued by a private entity but, unlike the famous cryptocurrencies (with Bitcoin as the main exponent), they can be used in a much wider range of applications.
From private equity to real estate, from gold reserves to works of art and even agricultural products. Tangible items have always been difficult to subdivide and physically transfer, with investors having to trade them manually on paper and through several layers of intermediaries in slow, complicated and costly processes.
By switching to a digital token system, asset owners and investors gain efficiencies by making assets more liquid by automating what were previously cumbersome and manual processes, while retaining the real-world characteristics of the underlying asset, and reducing barriers and frictions to the exchange of information and trading on them.
However, non-fungible tokens are also viable, usually in combination with fungible tokens representing prices. Non-fungible tokens require the storage of more data to identify each individual unit and are more complex to manage.
Benefits of asset tokenisation
Investors can trade real-world assets that, due to their low liquidity, would have been difficult to trade in the past.
Tokens improve asset liquidity, reduce territorial barriers and attract new investors through fractional ownership by allowing them to own a percentage of a real-world asset and package it with traditional bonds or hedge funds for resale in crypto markets.
They increase portfolio diversification as investors can now co-own multiple assets at the same time.
By working with blockchain technology, asset tokenisation becomes a much more defined process by capturing documents, information and data about an asset in a secure digital vault that can be accessed via a blockchain private key.
Once someone buys tokens, no one can delete or change the ownership record, blockchain tokens can be accessed from anywhere in the world, 24/7 via a web application or smartphone app.
In addition, tokens eliminate the information asymmetry present during the transfer of ownership and broaden the pool of potential investors.

Tokenización de Real Estate
Real Estate Tokenisation is the process of digitising the value of a real estate project and providing shared ownership more efficiently. The real estate asset is digitally represented in the form of a token that is linked to a blockchain.
Digital assets (tokens) can be integrated into secondary markets on a global scale and tasks such as dividend and interest payments can be automated.
When it comes to real estate assets, a variety of interests can be digitised ("tokenised"), for example:
- Fragmented ownership of a property.
- The share capital of a real estate holding company.
- Interest linked to the return on real estate assets.
- Cash-flow based profitability of companies and properties.
Benefits of Real Estate Tokenisation
Digital stocks and liquidity
Tokenised real estate can be traded on global secondary markets 24/7, dramatically increasing liquidity.
Global investment round
It allows fundraising on a global scale and digital shares can be traded without any geographical restriction.
More Efficient Management
Shared ownership management is more efficient, so tasks such as dividend and interest payments can be automated.
Tokenisation enables the democratisation of real estate investment, as it makes it possible to easily fractionalise property.
