Blockchain and exchange platforms offer more than just a space to trade cryptocurrencies. We are seeing some trends of using this infrastructure and technology to add liquidity and create a marketplace for assets outside of cryptos.
Alexander Geralis, the Chief Product Officer of cXchange, has spoken to BloxLive TV to discuss this innovative approach. In his interview, Alexander covered the below topics:
How can collectibles industry, including sports, art, equity and other assets, benefit from tokenization?
Having in mind, tokenization is new to many people, how would you summarize it in simple terms?
Has tokenization of products on blockchain been here for a while but was unknown to people outside the blockchain space?
How does funding through tokenization differ from IPOs, ICos, and crowdfunding?
How safe investors view tokenization comparing to traditional trading?

Bitcoin has taken another step back from the mainstream with the Bakkt Futures launch delayed again, as they are waiting for the greenlight from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. The launch was previously set for January 24th, 2019. The new date will be announced later this quarter.
The Bakkt Bitcoin Daily Futures Contract is a physically-settled daily futures contract for Bitcoin held in Bakkt Warehouse. The product will be launched on the Intercontinental Exchange, which also owns the New York Stock Exchange. This launch is seen as an opportunity to introduce more institutional and traditional market participants to Bitcoin as an asset class.
In the meantime, despite the postponement, cryptocurrencies managed to realize an upswing as Bitcoin broke above $4000 and Ethereum realized a steady gain to the $160 level.
Our expert, Alexander Geralis, the Chief Product Officer of cXchange, has discussed the Bakkt Futures Delay in his regular series with BloxLive TV, covering the below questions:
How much damage this postponement caused to the BAKKT brand?
Looking at the CME Futures launch in 2017 that might’ve been a catalyst in price, do we expect something similar with Bakkt?
What does Bakkt have to do in order to be compliant with the regulation?
Does the market expect to see a lot of interest in this product?
Because this is the 2nd push back for Bakkt, is there a risk of it not taking off at all?
Is this push back negative for the market?
Do you think there is trust from market participants waiting to enter this market?
Bakkt has attracted some notable names during the latest funding round such as Microsoft, Starbucks, and Boston Consulting. Why is this something important to note? Shall we expect more partnership in the nearest time?
