This blog will take you through each nuanced digital asset’s clear-cut definitions and capabilities. Let’s get started.

What are digital assets?

Simply put, digital assets are electronic data files that can be owned and transferred. They are also a way of storing intangible content such as computerized artwork, videos, etc. The past decade has seen significant and novel changes in digital assets, and now they can be used as currencies to make transactions.

Who is using digital assets?

Nearly everyone. The broad term used to describe all digital assets in the finance industry is ‘digital currency.’ The basic functionality of digital currencies is very similar to that of timeless physical currency.
Many companies have issued their currencies. These are often called tokens and can be traded specifically for the good or service that the company provides. GreatX tokens are one of the examples.

How did digital assets evolve?

Talks of digital currency date back well before 2008. However, in 2008, Bitcoin was the first recognized digital currency.
The revolutionary feature of Bitcoin and other digital assets is the ability to perform currency transactions without the need for intermediaries. This has significantly reduced the time and costs of any payment transaction. Cryptocurrencies are a form of payment that can be exchanged online for goods and services.

How are digital assets bought, held, and sold?

If you own digital assets, their records are held securely on a blockchain database. These digital currencies are decentralized, meaning there is no central bank or administrator that governs them.
This structure gained popularity and preference because there was no need to go to a central party, like a bank or a broker, to transfer digital assets. This makes transactions quicker and easier.

What is blockchain technology?

You can think of a blockchain as a type of electronic ledger. In it, digital asset transaction records are stored in data blocks. These are “chained” together in a specific order and protected using complex computer “hash” codes. Hence the name.

What are the types of digital assets/currencies?

With the growing popularity of digital currencies came several inventions. There are over 18,000 cryptocurrencies in existence as of today. Here are a few examples of digital assets.

The world’s first cryptocurrency is also the largest in market share(>40%)and valuation. The currency is also accepted as legal tender across multiple nations.

Ether is the prevalent cryptocurrency in Ethereum – the world’s largest blockchain network.

Launched in 2017, the ADA token named after French mathematician Ada Lovelace has exceeded a market cap of $71 billion.

Dogecoin (DOGE) 

It launched in 2013 and now has a market cap of over $33 billion.


It presents itself as a secure, private, and untraceable currency. Launched in April 2014, this is an open-source cryptocurrency, and its creation was donation-based and community-driven.

What are GreatX tokens?
