Core components required for a new financial system
Privacy is a human right and business necessity. As of yet, bitcoin is not private as every transaction can be tracked on the blockchain.
Smart Contracts are a key component for building more advanced features needed in the new financial system such as derivatives and prediction markets.
Stablecoins are cryptographic coins that have most of the attributes of bitcoin or ether but without the volatility. Its value is typically pegged to the dollar, euro, gold, or a basket of currencies. They have the potential to become a medium of exchange, a unit of account, and the base for building more complex financial instruments on the blockchain.
Tokenization allows us to bring traditional assets to the world of crypto, such as stocks, REITs, and bonds, making custody, transfer, and post-trade more efficient and globally accessible.
Identity and reputation are the cornerstone of some of the most important financial products. It allows lenders and service providers to forecast behavior, enabling everything from business loans to home rentals.
Decentralized exchanges, sidechains, and Layer 2 solutions are needed to make the new financial system run smoothly.
