Tokenize everything


The motivation behind Alphabill comes from our conviction that over the next 10 years the global economy will become increasingly tokenized - certainly every financial asset but also every physical and digital asset. Tokenization means that the properties of assets become immutable and cryptographically verifiable, and a central party is no longer necessary to execute transactions or be an authority on what is true or what is false.  

Everyone talks about scalability in terms of transactions per second but no one talks about scalability of verification. Alphabill is the first composable blockchain such that each token created on-chain is independently verifiable and actionable in the real world.
