Digital Assets Diversified

The Blue Water Team

Digital assets, a new asset class born of the world's digitization, is providing a way for investors to diversify their portfolios while taking advantage of blockchain technology. 

Digital Assets: Defined

Digital assets in today's modern world, refer specifically to blockchain. Blockchain refers to operating platforms controlled by individuals, who are motivated to keep the software secure through another digital asset. The first and most common example is Bitcoin, though there are many other types of digital assets available today. 

Digital Assets: Importance

Digitization is a growing trend that holds great potential for investors. Bitcoin, for example, is performing better than other asset classes between 1 and 10 years. 

In addition, digital assets provide investors the opportunity to diversify their portfolios in a way that makes it easier to weather market volatility and other potential obstacles.

Because it is too early to know which (or whether any) digital asset will eventually come out ahead, investors can diversify their digital asset investments by investing across potential areas of growth. 

Digital Assets: A Way to Store Value

In the modern age, bitcoin serves as a strong contender with gold as a way to store value. Thanks to its ability to resist economic uncertainty and its meteoric adoption across traditional hedge funds and wealth channels, it presents a promising store of value alternative for investors. 

Digital Assets and Decentralized Finance

Decentralized finance (DeFi) is growing rapidly, from $1B of worth in 2020 to $47B of worth in March of 2021. DeFi is transforming the finance industry, with greater speed and transparency than more traditional models. 

Digital Assets and Digital Payments

Digital payments are also growing in popularity and diversity. In some places, such as China, digital payments are more common than traditional forms of payment. Blockchain technology and digital assets make the growth of digital payments possible and present an exciting investment opportunity. 

Digital Assets: A Comparison

The two biggest digital assets, bitcoin, and ethereum, have important differences that investors should consider. Bitcoin, for example, is a hard asset, while ethereum is a growth asset. Understanding these difference can help investors choose the right investments. 

Digital assets are growing rapidly and presenting investors with promising opportunities. Participating in these opportunities can help investors benefit from diversification and profit from the changes in global finance that are occurring.
