More than any event in our lifetime, the COVID-19 global pandemic underscores the interconnectedness of our world. It also throws a very harsh light on a troubling fact: at a time when we need rapid, coordinated action and collaboration, massive amounts of critical information continue to be trapped in hardened data silos and legacy processes.

Now more than ever, we need a trusted platform to automate outdated ways of working, rapidly piece together disparate data sets, and unlock actionable insights to navigate through this crisis — and prepare for the long recovery ahead in a changed world.

Blockchain technology may offer opportunities to increase trust & transparency -- but it's not a silver bullet. Rather, it is part of a broader digitization strategy that must be evaluated and deployed responsibly and holistically.

The taxonomy of crypto assets

To list and search investments/investors the asset class classification (taxonomy) of crypto assets is:

•     Cryptocurrencies (synonymous to payment token) such as bitcoin, litecoin, libra, ether, etc, are in the asset class of commodities/cryptocurrencies.

•    Investment in security tokens (including stablecoins) that derive their value from a tradable asset according to the underlying investment. Typically it will be equity, private capital (this includes private equity, venture capital, private debt, infrastructure, private equity real estate, collectives, special situations, intellectual property, and secondaries, etc.), but can also be real estate, multi-asset, fixed-income, commodities/cryptocurrencies, hedge funds, or insurance-linked-securities.

•    Utility tokens are simply app coins or user tokens. They enable future access to the products or services offered by a company. If used for investing, they will be treated according to their main characteristics as a cryptocurrency or a security token.

•    Trading strategies belong to the asset class of hedge fund/trading.
