An introduction and the potential risks

The rise of cryptoassets

Cryptoassets like Bitcoin and Ethereum have made their way into the mainstream financial industry and are being sought out by retail investors as well. We’ve seen companies like Tesla, Block (formerly Square), and Microstrategy put them on their balance sheets as reserve assets, financial institutions offering their customers access to crypto-related products, and retail investors buying them on exchanges. The adoption and acceptance of cryptoassets have accelerated at an incredible pace, leading to a nearly $2.2 trillion market cap.

But what exactly are cryptoassets?

Broadly defined, cryptoassets are digital units of account in which cryptography and open-source software are used to regulate the generation and distribution of units, which get tracked on a public ledger, known as a blockchain.

There are many risk-related challenges facing organizations as they institutionalize cryptoassets. Lessons learned from traditional business models are still applicable, but organizations will need to challenge these through a crypto lens. There is a need for a comprehensive framework and crypto-specific capabilities to support this transformation and prepare for a changed future.

Our new point-of-view article takes readers on an introduction to cryptoassets and the potential risks, and steps organizations can take to navigate these risks and turn them into opportunities.
