Exploring the Different Types of Digital Assets
The digital asset ecosystem lacks a comprehensive framework and is rife with undefined and jumbled terminology. Arca developed an asset classification system to help professional investors navigate the growing market of tokens. The varying governance structures, bodies, and methods of value accrual described in our outline highlight the expanded functionality and opportunity of digital assets. We believe that digitization underpins all asset classes, and this infographic provides a mapping of traditional assets into our digital asset taxonomy. This is how we define the digital asset universe.
