The Clawback functionality and other compliance features are some of the many that regulated entities will be able to access and leverage.
According to a report from 22.co, a digital asset management firm, tokenized assets could grow to $10 trillion within the next 10 years, if adoption from traditional financial (TradFi) institutions persists.
“We estimate that the market value for tokenized assets will be between $3.5 trillion in the bear-case scenario and $10 trillion in the bull case by 2030.” The report added, further stating that the convergence between crypto and traditional assets like fiat currencies and other similar assets, is poised to grow significantly.
