The rise of tokenization - why now? The CanChamHK Property & Development Committee will explore the advantages of tokenization for real estate as well as the current regulatory landscape that developers should keep a close eye on. We have invited an expert panel to discuss how blockchain and other distributed ledger technologies are increasingly being adopted in FinTech solutions and creating democratization of digital assets. 

Join us on Monday 22nd February to discover why Hong Kong and Asia will set the agenda for tokenization going forward.
