THE FUTURE OF BLOCKCHAIN
Investing in Blockchain: Turning Virtual Goods Into New Assets
Unlike the well-established field of physical collectibles, the digital collecting market is still in its infancy as digital collectibles have not been permanent, unique, or scarce, thus they struggled to accrue value. Thanks to blockchain technology, especially non-fungible tokens, the uniqueness, scarcity, and authenticity of a digital collectible can now be guaranteed. Blockchain also enables true digital ownership of virtual goods in perpetuity; the holder will own a digital product for life even if it’s company, provider or operator closes. Genuine digital ownership will drive significant demands for virtual goods and help grow a significant new market for them.
CEO & Founder, Outblaze and Animocabrands, Famed Tech Entrepreneur
