Tokenomics / Tokenisation / Token Economy

Recommended Posts

I thought it was a good time to start a completely new thread in relation to the next phase after Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies. This next phase is tokenisation. I include some links below which will help those who are not too familiar with the concept.

The above is a very good example of IG's competitor trying to steal a march on its rival and be proactive.

Thank you very much for sharing this. It is very much appreciated. I want this IG Community to be proactive and ahead of the game in relation to the 'Cryptocurrency and Blockchain' section.

I believe that there is some serious traction in 'Tokenisation' and some really exciting opportunities being developed too. 

We may have to add 'Tokenisation' to the section title very soon in the future once people start understanding what is happening now and what plans are in the pipeline for the coming future. It may well be:

Here's Why Interest In Tokenizing Assets Is Starting To Surge


Those who understand 'tokenisation' and how significant it is going to be will be able to try and identify those assets which they could invest in which could offer potentially lucrative returns in the long term. There are some really interesting early stage companies and start ups operating in this arena which are gaining traction and momentum.

I am getting a few readers who have read this thread and would like me to explain in simple terms what tokenisation is. So here goes...

Tokenomics is basically about understanding the utility role of a token. Now once you have a use case and purpose, users will start demanding that token. So for example one of the use cases being discussed right now is for the 'Toll'. Based on reports I have read it seems Jaguar Land Rover have teams up with IOTA (Crypto Token) to deliver this service of drivers being able to pay Tolls using tokens. This in its simplicity is tokenomics. When enough tokens are being used to pay for goods and services seamlessly without having to find loose change or go to an ATM which can be inconvenient at times then it will become the 'Token Economy'. 

So when any goods or services can be provided in exchange for tokens (seamlessly) then this is in essence 'Tokenisation'.

This is an interesting article from Deloitte's on Tokenisation of assets and how it is disrupting the financial industry. 


I appreciate there is a lot of scientism on tokenisation but I shall let you decide if you perceive this as a credible source or not rather than a company or website with an article that not many have ever heard of.  

The Bank of France is closely looking at the tokenisation of assets as explained in the article below:

For some of you who do not fully understand or appreciate this area then I would urge you to start at the beginning of this thread and go through the information and obtain the necessary knowledge and understanding before jumping to a strong opinion or view either way.

The Middle East seems to be embracing 'Tokenomics'. Please see the article below for further information. 

UAE second in global token sales


The UAE wants to apply government transactions on the blockchain and apply it to Dubai's smart city ambitions. UAE are embracing this technology as they realise they are in the middle of the globe in terms of payment transactions and supply chain from west in to east and vice versa. It wants to be the hub for global trade both from the physical sense and digital sense and this includes digital transactions.

This is an excellent article that I have come across this morning which highlights the Bank of England (BOE) Governor looking at tokenised assets.

All I would say is for people to keep an open mind and not allow any stubbornness or bias to cloud their judgement or thinking.

I am seeing an increase in investment opportunities on Crowdfunding websites that have incorporated some form of 'tokenisation' into their business model. Now I am not sure whether this is a good or bad thing. Time will tell as a lot of these companies just jump on the bandwagon to attract more capital from those who know and understand very little. 

A nice interview article below which makes some interesting points.

This is something which could gain traction if it proves to be a successful model. This has not yet been proven and only time and success will tell if tokenisation can be applied successfully in cases like this.

Making transactions online via our computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone is the now and future. However with this comes risk of the theft of our data somewhere down the line. 

I think this article highlights why tokenisation can assist in this area and it is being launched by Google in India. India has a huge population and is a huge market to test digital innovation. I appreciate there are those who dismiss 'Tokenisation' because it is associated with 'Blockchain' and then those who dismiss both because of its association with 'Cryptocurrencies'.

Some big players are incorporating 'tokenisation' into their business offerings and this is happening now and is projected to increase significantly in the future. 

The likes of Amazon, Google, IBM, Microsoft and Apple are all embracing Blockchain technology and Tokenisation. If this really is garbage and a fad (I don't believe it but I know some are convinced of it) then why are these companies even bothering?

One cannot simply dismiss something because they do not understand it properly. I believe in time to come 'tokenisation' will bring with it some fantastic and compelling investment opportunities. I have already taken equity stakes in some exciting UK start up's which are looking to disrupt the loyalty and payments offering in the UK and then internationally. These are early growth businesses at a very early stage. The one's that make it will either IPO in the future or be acquiring by larger companies. This is going to be a very exciting growth area in the future in my personal opinion. 

There is material online available on this subject matter and books as well. They are worth a read before dismissing this as a compelling investment opportunity. A lot of these companies are private companies which have not listed yet.

Tokenisation is still seen by  some as a FAD or some fraudulent ICO, etc. It is this misunderstanding of what tokenisation really is and how it will benefit both companies and its consumers in the future which is so critical at the moment. 

Once you open your minds to Blockchain and Tokenisation and put aside the daily Cryptocurrency price fluctuations then you will realise how this area is gaining shape and how it is looking to be implemented.

I appreciate there will still be many who see this area as a con or garbage but I do encourage those to read some credible books and credible material from credible websites online to see the growth in this area that is being witnessed before making judgements and assumptions which are not being supported by actions and results at present.
