Play • 40 min


How do you go from artwork to NFT? What does the process of tokenising your asset look like? In this episode, we peel back the curtains on the behind-the-scenes process and steps of the creation of a token, and how token generation machines like TOKO, co-engineered by DLA Piper and BCW Group, are providing asset owners an easier gateway to make their illiquid assets tradeable in ways that are normally not feasible under existing technology and regulations.

Scott Thiel is a Partner at global law firm DLA Piper and Head of the Technology team in Hong Kong, advising both users and suppliers of IT outsourcing services on the procurement process and complex technology transactions.
