Tokenized Finance (ToFi)

The legally secure linking of assets with blockchain tokens (tokenization) is a central field of innovation and application of blockchain technology. Tokenization makes it possible to create a security in the functional sense that does not require the classic paper document. It is of particular significance in financial markets, as it may lead to a much larger group of assets becoming marketable and tradable. Tokenization also renders certain intermediates unnecessary and allows for further process automation, which could result in visible efficiency benefits. Tokenization has a key role to play especially with regard to Decentralized Finance (DeFi). The project group is conducting comprehensive research on the legal and technical aspects and policy implications of tokenization and its impact on financial markets.
