As financial asset infrastructures continue to go digital, researchers from the blockchain oracle platform Chainlink think asset managers have a "sizable" opportunity to get into tokenization.

Blockchain oracle platform Chainlink outlined the possibilities and how interoperability and real-world data may unleash the value of tokenized assets in an industry research titled "Beyond Token Issuance."

The paper outlined tokenization's possible advantages for asset managers. This entails bringing dormant capital back to life, increasing the availability of assets, and developing innovative revenue streams.

In addition, Chainlink stated that as tokenization enables more automated risk assessment, asset managers might enhance their risk management, differentiate their service offerings, and build cohesive client portfolios.

The company also noted that traditional and blockchain-based assets are already combining into a single financial ecosystem. Chainlink further stated in the research that blockchains have continued to expand into a "integral component of the existing financial ecosystem."

The researchers surmise that this is the outcome of ongoing digitalization, since blockchains provided better infrastructure for transactions and asset storage.

Tokenization has been in a research and development stage for a number of years, according to Ryan Lovell, director of capital markets at Chainlink Labs.

Institutions were bringing fundamental account balances on-chain, according to Lovell, and they were attempting to determine the basic effects of tokenization on their operations. Lovell stated:

"This project resembled creating a concept automobile without an interior or an engine, merely a fundamental framework for what lies ahead."

The CEO does think that creating the necessary infrastructure will take up more of the next tokenization phase. Tokenized assets must be programmable and composable across traditional systems as well as private and public chains.

The Chainlink CEO thinks that strong applications might be unlocked by augmenting tokens with real-world data and enabling them to function across blockchains and conventional systems.

Compared to traditional finance infrastructure, Lovell claimed these use cases would have better cost-effectiveness, transparency, and reduced administrative procedures.

"In order to help institutions move beyond simple token issuance, manage tokenized assets throughout their entire lifecycle, and interact across the cross-chain economy, Lovell continued, "We're actively working on several exciting initiatives at the moment."
