What is Blockchain?

A ‘blockchain’ is simply an electronic ledger that records transactions and balances in a given system. The technology allows for efficient recordkeeping of the transfer of currency, assets, or information between multiple participants. This collection of records is verifiable by all blockchain members and represents a permanent, single version of truth, removing the need for a central authority for reconciliation. 

Beyond the freeze: blockchain’s revival after the Crypto Winter

2022 was a difficult year for the blockchain ecosystem. Major crypto-assets declined and several market participants failed. Yet amid the setbacks, building on blockchain continues and parts of the ecosystem functionality remain robust, and multiple surveys show continued investor interest in digital assets.

Investments Risks

  • For complete information on risks, refer to the legal documents.

    The value of investments, and any income from them, will fluctuate. This may partly be the result of changes in exchange rates. Investors may not get back the full amount invested.

    The Fund may be exposed to the risk of the borrower defaulting on its obligation to return the securities at the end of the loan period and of being unable to sell the collateral provided to it if the borrower defaults.

    The Fund might be concentrated in a specific region or sector or be exposed to a limited number of positions, which might result in greater fluctuations in the value of the Fund than for a fund that is more diversified.

    The value of equities and equity-related securities can be affected by a number of factors including the activities and results of the issuer and general and regional economic and market conditions. This may result in fluctuations in the value of the Fund.

    An investment in this fund is an acquisition of units in a passively managed, index tracking fund rather than in the underlying assets owned by the fund. Costs may increase or decrease as result of currency and exchange rate fluctuations. Consult the legal documents for further information on costs.

Blockchain FAQs

Blockchain is an immutable database that allows data to be recorded and distributed across countless computers globally. It provides benefits in terms of decentralization, security and transparency compared to traditional methods of transacting and sharing information. There is a cryptographic element that ensures each participant has the same view of the shared data. This is designed to increase trust between participants while relying on no singular point of authority.

Public (open) blockchains are open and decentralised, where anyone is allowed to participate in the activities of the blockchain. This model is most commonly used in cryptocurrencies. Private (closed) blockchains, in comparison, have a permissioned and verified list of participants that are allowed to interact with the blockchain. This list is controlled by a central party. Private blockchains can be used by corporations to improve business processes and manage internal assets, transactions or audit trails.

Blockchain technologies are still developing, with many opportunities lying within companies that are not yet realised. As such, the potential opportunities in this space remain underappreciated by investors. 

Bitcoin is a type of cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrencies use blockchain technology to validate and secure transactions. While cryptoassets are the most common example of blockchain use today, the underlying blockchain technology should be understood as a distributed ledger that facilitates the exchange of information. Viewed in this way, applications of blockchain technology can be wide-ranging, whereas Bitcoin is only one expression of this technology – a digital means of storing and transacting value.
