With the financial stress of Covid-19 and inflation fears, institutional investors are exploring cryptocurrencies and tokenised assets as alternative investments. However, as we witness the beginning of a major portfolio diversification shift, uncertainty remains regarding risk, taxonomy and valuation surrounding these new asset classes.
In partnership with Kroll, OMFIF’s Digital Monetary Institute hosted this virtual panel on the cryptoasset landscape. The panel discussed market trends and demand, types of cryptoassets, technical ways of valuing cryptoassets, risk, adoption and the use over time.
