According to the analytical platform Artemic Terminal, the tokenized real assets (RWA) sector showed an increase of 58% in May 2024. It is followed by the Ethereum and Bitcoin ecosystems with growth of 26.1% and 18.2%, respectively.

According to expert estimates from Artemic Terminal, the growth is due to several events, including the tokenization of Antonio Stradivari’s violin and the sale of a 10% stake in Watford FC in digital format.

In addition, the meeting of the Committee on Financial Services of the US House of Representatives, which discussed the issues of tokenization of real assets as drivers of growth in the digital economy, had a positive effect on the RWA sector. The hearing also discussed the need to develop additional rules to support the tokenization of assets and derivatives.

According to BlackRock CEO Larry Fink, asset tokenization has significant potential as it increases the flexibility of investment strategies through the rapid execution of transactions in bonds and shares of companies.

Jenny Johnson, President and CEO of Franklin Templeton, shares a similar view. According to her, asset tokenization makes it possible to reduce minimum investment amounts and operating costs, making professional asset management more accessible to novice investors.
