LAT CRYPTO market RESEARCH
By 2025, total capitalization of cryptocurrencies may exceed $5 trillion as crypto wallet penetration exceeds 5% and asset cryptocurrencies pave the way for trading of asset tokens. Total capitalization of asset cryptocurrencies linked to real world asset prices (e.g. equity, debt, commodities, real estate) may account for at least 80% of total market share by 2025 as, in addition to the benefits of traditional cryptocurrencies, they are less volatile and provide new opportunities for portfolio optimization.
Trading volume of asset cryptocurrencies can exceed their capitalization by more than 10 times. Thus, trading volume of asset cryptocurrencies may exceed $40 trillion by 2025. Given that overall value of major asset classes is $600 trillion, total trading volume potential for asset cryptocurrencies is $6 quadrillion.
Asset crypto can be regarded as countercyclical to traditional cryptocurrencies. It is a more attractive alternative to real assets as it saves the costs of conversion from crypto to fiat, making this indispensable for cryptoportfolio diversification.
