Read_656 – No, We Are Not Going to “Tokenize Everything” [Niko Jilch]

“The whole tokenize-everything-thing so far is one fast hype train. It is exciting not for the technical efficiencies it may provide but for the exact opposite: rent seekers seeking rent. Actually, between the lines, some projects seem to suggest to everyone: “You, too, can be a rent seeker.” – Niko Jilch

Wouldn’t you want to own 1/1000th of a London apartment? Or maybe a famous work of art? Wouldn’t this make ownership of these things far more efficient and be a major shift in the access of these rare and valuable items to new investors? Or are they largely a new take on the same old rent seeking behavior with no added value, and a major misunderstanding of the world we are head into? Don’t miss this succinct article from Niko Jilch arguing why we will not, in fact, be “tokenizing everything.”
