According to global consulting firm BCG, the asset tokenization market will grow 50 times from US$310 billion in this year, to US$16.1 trillion by 2030, driven by demand from a wide range of investors for greater access to private markets. Tokenization and fractionalization of assets lower barriers to investment in private markets by sharply reducing minimum lot sizes.

The Exchange is expected to be the main driver in contributing to the establishment of Islamic Digital Asset Center, or IDAC, embracing digital innovations to transform businesses beyond conventional model to improve market access, evolve financial products and promote greater financial inclusivity.

Greenpro CEO, Dr. CK Lee said, “Due to the world’s trend moving towards ESG and decarbonization, and the strong fundamental of Halal economy, we are confident to build Green-X as world largest STO platform in the very near future. We will continuously create and deliver more value to our shareholders.”
