The foundation is a Dutch initiative of Allen & Overy, KAS BANK, Public Policy Agency, La Gro Geelkerken Advocaten, Business Creation and fintech companies Liqwith en Chaintip.

Crypto Delta aims to build an ecosystem for the issuance of digital, blockchain based, assets to create an internationally favourable environment for companies that want to issue digital assets in the Netherlands. he key to this is a shared vision and collaboration between all stakeholders (industry, SME, start-ups, advisors, VC’s, etc.) to instill trust and deliver sustainable innovation that is required for a stable ecosystem.

Crypto Delta serves as a focal point for know-how on digital assets issuances and helps to develop best practices and market standards that facilitate a streamlined process for issuing digital assets in close collaboration with legislators and regulators.

“The Netherlands has a favourable environment for the issuance of digital assets”, says Roel Wolfert, chairman of Crypto Delta. “We are seeing a lot of (international) companies considering the Netherlands as a serious option to enter the market. Still, there is a lot to be done which is why we established Crypto Delta. We want to prevent market fragmentation and collaborate to find solutions that work for everyone.”

Why digital assets?
Tokenisation* of traditional, illiquid assets to digital assets can lead to more accessible and efficient capital markets. The most prominent advantages are:

  • Liquidity and flexibility because digital assets are easily transferable, even in markets where this previously was not possible, such as real estate.
  • Less risk due to fractionalisation of ownership, leading to a more diversified investment portfolio.
  • Reliability as a result of the transparent and immutable properties of the blockchain, reducing fraud.
  • Cost effective, because in a digital environment several steps can be automated.

*Tokenisation is the conversion of ownership of physical assets like company shares and bonds in digital form (on the blockchain or other Distributed Ledger Technology). These “digital assets” are easily transferable, creating the potential for liquidity. If you have any questions, please contact: Roel Wolfert, Chairman Crypto Delta roel.wolfert@cryptodelta.nl
