Kicking Off with Insights from Julian Kwan

The event kicked off with a foreward from PDAX Listing Director, Pat Lao. Followed by a compelling introduction by Julian Kwan, CEO and Co-Founder of IX Swap and InvestaX, who provided insights into the evolution of Security Token Offerings (STOs) into Real-World Assets (RWAs) since 2018. 

Julian highlighted the initial efforts in tokenizing assets and the tremendous growth seen in this space over the past few years. He emphasized the importance of acquiring licenses, a process that typically takes years, and how we are now at an inflection point with acceptance from Wall Street to startup land. 

Also delving into how IX Swap and InvestaX are leading the movement towards RWA adoption, explaining the workings of IX Swap as a decentralized exchange for security tokens and tokenized assets. His presentation underscored the critical role these platforms play in driving widespread adoption of tokenized assets.

Julian also addressed the growing excitement surrounding tokenization. After years of development and maturation, with key milestones such as the approval of Ethereum and Bitcoin ETFs, the industry is now at a pivotal moment. The ease of tokenizing private and public market assets, combined with endorsements from industry giants like Larry Fink, Blackrock, and the CEO of Franklin Templeton, has created a surge of interest. The call to use public blockchains for tokenization is particularly significant, as it enables real-world assets to interact seamlessly with digital assets, opening up new avenues for value creation, investment products, and distribution channels.
