Crypto Currencies and Digital Assets

What are Crypto currencies and Digital Assets?

Simply put, a Crypto currency is a digital or virtual currency, secured by cryptography. There are various types of Crypto currency and their utility, a popular way to describe use in the Crypto community, can vary widely.

Digital assets may include virtually anything of value that is not tangible in nature. This would include all Crypto currencies as well as non-fungible tokens (NFTs); software code, media or other valuable data held in digital form.

Crypto in Finance

Whilst crypto currencies and digital assets can be used on a standalone basis the traditional financial services sector can bring these new assets into established products to create a hybrid that is both recognisable to clients whilst allowing exposure to digital assets in a controlled manner. Investment portfolios, funds, insurance vehicles and trusts should all be able to gain exposure to digital assets to varying degrees.
