"The true potential of blockchain is more exciting by far than that of cryptocurrencies," said Jun Lu, head of Lufax Technology Center, at CNBC's East Tech West conference in the Nansha district of Guangzhou, China. When people talk about blockchain, Lu ventured, they are often only thinking cryptocurrencies. "Cryptocurrency is but one application of the blockchain technology, which in comparison has vastly more untapped potential and considerably more value to offer," considered Lu.
As financial technology and digital assets evolve there's always going to be things that work and things that don't. If the distributed ledger technology would fulfill its potential and reach mass adoption, then major trillion-dollar industries would be completely changed. 2019 will be a transition year on the way to a regulated market of tokenized assets. Security tokens are at the core of the rebound but what's even more revolutionary is the concept of Digital Names.
