“For Ram Shoham, co-founder of Accelerator Frankfurt, the future is blockchain. After five sessions focusing on an array of fintech offerings, Accelerator Frankfurt will now concentrate on this dispersed-ledger technology, the underpinning of cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin. Shoham believes that by tokenizing assets—or digitally listing and storing rights to an asset that would otherwise be difficult to transfer via cash or cash equivalents—blockchain will open up entirely new asset classes to investors.”
“Now you invest in stocks, in bonds, in savings. You have cash,” Shoham says. “With blockchain, we’re going to see big new possibilities open up in real estate, in art, in technology. We’re going to be able to tokenize all these different investments that have not been available to retail investors before.”
