Blockchain is an ingenious invention and it has revolutionized digital assets by democratizing it and allowing people to have full access to its value and money. But due to rising popularity and huge demand of blockchains and cryptocurrency, there has been several limitations in digital asset investment. Some of the problems are discussed below.
- Poor legal structure. Many of the investment platforms lack the proper legal structure, are unauthorized and does not follow the legal procedures.
- Lack of properly secured wallets, insufficient up-to-date security tools and improper software tools often has led to hacking and security breaches in the past.
- Most of the time the buyers do not have the proper knowledge and expertise to handle the blockchain interface. As a result of which, they are often hesitant to invest in the market.
- Other investments like real estate, venture capital, equity share often involve huge stake of money, lack of liquidity and risks. Until now this has been accessible only to big investors who have considerably huge sums of money to invest.
- Moreover, the legal framework and security laws to protect safety of investors in crypto market is far more advanced in developed countries.
- Intermediaries are often responsible for high fees and commission.
