We are assured that we are in the right era of IP securitization and digitization!”

How could intellectual property dance with blockchain? 

Blockchain technology and the token economy provide a brand-new solution to financing via IP rights securitizationTransparency, efficiency, sharing, and decentralization of blockchain are highly compatible with the requirements of IP asset securitization. Using blockchain technology, the authenticity of each asset can be confirmed and shared by all participating parties. Each transfer is faithfully and completely recorded on the blockchain, facilitating the tracking of asset ownership and preventing “selling more than you own. Transactions on the blockchain are automatically executed through inherent smart contracts to improve transfer efficiency and convenience; tracking and supervision of assets facilitates data analysis and processing. At the same time records on blockchain provide transparency and security for IP rights transactions.
