The main focus of this evening is to discuss new investment opportunities and asset classes based on blockchain technology and crypto assets. During this evening event, we will examine the underlying drivers of the emerging interest in crypto assets and how this new asset class contributes to meaningful portfolio diversification. In addition, we will discuss the advantages of tokenizing traditional asset classes, such as ETFs and stocks, and outline their future development. It is jointly organized by the Frankfurt School Blockchain Center and its partner eToro.
