Can physical asset tokenisation become mainstream?

The tokenisation of physical assets refers to the creation of a tamper proof, unique and legally enforceable digital representation of a physical object.  It opens a world of opportunities as the physical objects which were earlier consigned to specific markets are now available to global investors. The earliest example of the tokenisation of an asset was when a $30 million luxury Manhattan condo development was tokenised on Ethereum.
