retail investors , Eyre said. “They were the primary drivers of growth in this rapidly innovating space, and they were essentially doing micro-venture investing with tokens,” he said. “They would buy some tokens, and in doing so, they would increase the real-world usage and validity of a . Now we’re seeing larger institutions and corporations enter the space and more awareness from regulators about exactly what’s going on.” As a result, the investment thesis of digital assets is becoming “more coherent,” according to Eyre. Blockchain innovations and the metaverse Eyre is also eying innovations being driven by blockchain technology . “It’s really leveling up the fundamental infrastructure that the world operates on, and in the process, you have a lot of centralized mechanisms being disintermediated across all of those spaces,” Eyre said. “As a result, we’re seeing new coming out of the woodwork and gaining more mainstream access and acceptance.” Another application watched by Eyre is “ the metaverse ,” a convergence of artificial intelligence, blockchain and virtual reality technology creating a new medium for human interaction and connectivity. The metaverse, according to Eyre, represents a step forward in the ways humans learn, store and share information potentially as profound as the advent of the internet. Yet even as the metaverse is born, many advisors are still debating whether to offer tokens like bitcoin and ethereum to their clients and wondering if cryptocurrency is right for their businesses. “In reality, bitcoin and ethereum are just the start of a long journey,” Eyre said. “The way I like to think of this is that Web 3.0 in the advent of blockchain technology is really the start of the tokenization of everything towards much more efficient mechanisms for tracking the ownership of various assets, whether digital or physical. Tokens can be applied to just about anything, as we’re seeing from NFTs.” Thanks to tokenization, investment opportunities that were once difficult to offer to a broad audience and that required long periods of illiquidity, such as private equity, venture capital and private real estate, can now be opened up to more investors. While the transition to tokenization will probably take time, it is already underway, and Eyre feels certain that advisors will recognize and seize the opportunity. John Sarson, CEO of crypto asset manager and education provider Sarson Funds, believes crypto will further disrupt the payments ecosystem. “Visa and Mastercard will continue to lose market share to crypto-based payment solutions, but the biggest impact will be felt by financial advisors in the movement away from traditional banking/wires and towards crypto centric payment solutions such as funding accounts with stablecoins and/or cryptocurrencies,” Sarson said. “Younger investors will bring an expectation for real-time transparency surrounding money movements, and savvy financial advisors would be wise to embrace cryptocurrency infrastructure to satisfy this demand.“ Marc Butler, CEO of Skience, which supplies a cloud-based platform to advisors automating client onboarding, advisor transitions, accounting and compliance tasks, believes traditional exchanges are ripe for blockchain disruption. “It seems weird to me that in today’s day and age, where you can move money instantly across the world using digital assets, it still takes us two days to clear an equity trade,” Butler said. “I think we’re all waiting for a clearing platform built on blockchain that can clear trades instantly and with full transparency, and I think it’s coming. There’s no reason we should have to wait two days to clear a trade.” DISCLOSURE The leader in news and information on cryptocurrency, digital assets and the future of money, CoinDesk is a media outlet that strives for the highest journalistic standards and abides by a
