Digital assets can be thought to include any digital representation of value which is recorded on a cryptographically secured distributed ledger or any similar technology, ie not merely digital media but convertible virtual currency, cryptocurrency, stablecoins, etc. This interesting information came to us from Reuters in their article, “The role of tracing in digital asset disputes.”

The crypto space is vast, and it can be easy to get lost in a sea of terms and definitions. According to research, 2022 was the worst year yet for the hacking of cryptoassets, with approximately $3.8 billion worth of cryptocurrency stolen worldwide. The real cost could be significantly higher.

Digital assets like cryptocurrencies, NFTs, and other tokens are no longer emerging technologies — they’re here to stay. Consumers, businesses, and regulators are embracing digital currencies and decentralized financing solutions, giving rise to the urgency for financial institutions to adapt. Taking a future-back approach to strategy building can help financial institutions leverage existing strengths to compete in the digital asset market.
