The CRC has reviewed
over 70% of the top 100
digital assets by market capitalization

There are myriad utilities and features created or enabled by digital assets. The most simple digital assets function merely as currency, storing value and facilitating transactions.


Other digital assets are used as currency in particular ecosystems, like an online metaverse or digital gaming world. There are many more complex digital assets that function as "gas" (i.e. used to pay transaction fees) to access particular services, like the ability to program smart contracts or decentralized application on a blockchain development network.


Digital assets may also be used to incentivize participants in a blockchain ecosystem to undertake certain activities, like voting in governance proposals or performing tasks like ride-sharing or data collection facilitating a gig economy.
