Before you read about how companies all over the world are accommodating to a shift in how we see money and assets, make sure you have read part one of this two-part article. In part one, we see how tokenization and cryptocurrencies have shifted our understanding of investing, currency, and more.
If you have already read part one, in this article, we look at three revolutionary companies that are not only following the trends of digitizing our wealth but are leading the way. With all of the advances of tokenization and the rising access to cryptocurrencies, managing these digital assets are coming into question. Major banks and tech startups alike are finding innovative ways to hold, invest, and trade tokens.
International banks like UBS are beginning to implement crypto services and blockchain-based trading. UBS specifically plans to integrate tokens in their cross-border trades, which is one of the most significant developments to date to get crypto and token use in the mainstream.
While it is great that large established banks are making headway in terms of crypto, with alternative and decentralized currency and assets, come alternative banking. Global establishments are offering services regarding all things crypto and tokenization.
