The Liechtenstein law that is actualizing the dream of the token economy

Liechtenstein was the first jurisdiction in the world to pass a comprehensive law on tokenization.  When the Token and Trustworthy Technology Service Provider Act (TVTG) became law on 1 January 2020, it became possible for issuers to tokenize any asset that exists in the physical world - from real estate, through precious metals and collectibles, to securities such as equities and bonds – with the comfort of legal certainty. 

Dr Thomas Dünser, director of the office of financial innovation of the Government of Liechtenstein and a member of the Supervisory Board of the BFG Blockchain Founders Group in the principality, told Dominic Hobson how intermediaries, issuers and investors are using the law to make a reality of the coming “token economy.”
