The reason why digital tokens are a great concept is that it allows the tokenization of ownership.
To put things into perspective, you are able to sell a percentage of your asset in the form of a token, and the beneficiary can benefit from the appreciation of that token's value.
Digital tokens can pave the way for a market of assets with value that can be tokenized.
Non-fungible tokens or NFTs are one example of such tokens, and with the right regulations in place, they can gain the trust of investors.
