What are digital assets, and why are they important?

The adoption of digital assets — such as cryptocurrencies, non-fungible tokens, blockchain and distributed ledgers, smart contracts, and other blockchain-native concepts and technologies — is rapidly accelerating in both retail and commercial realms.

As digital assets mature, institutional investors are moving markets, and financial firms are tokenizing previously illiquid asset classes — such as corporate bonds, real estate and derivatives.

To participate in this new financial landscape and unlock the transformative power of distributed ledger technologies, enterprises need the ability to store and transfer digital assets securely and quickly, while maintaining  control of their encryption keys.

For digital asset custodies, exchanges, issuance providers and permissioned blockchains that must protect private keys, applications and data, IBM® Hyper Protect Digital Assets Platform is a secure hosting environment that provides end-to-end security.
