Traditional markets vs. Crypto markets out with the old, in with the new

Since the Dutch East India Co.’s public share offering in 1602, public markets have allowed for people of all walks of life to help cultivate, contribute, and profit from a capitalistic system that has pulled many out of poverty. Over time, technological innovations have made markets more advanced and the barriers to entry continue to fall. Today, anyone with a smart phone and bank account can access the same markets that century old institutions have been dabbling in for decades, if not centuries. Though the playing field appears leveled, centralized entities and large institutions continue to take advantage of market participants. Fortunately, technological advances have also led to the rise of the most transparent market to date: cryptoassets .

At a $2T market capitalization and counting, the evolving cryptoasset market enables anyone with an internet connection to participate side-by-side with multi-billion dollar institutions on the same platforms and using the same open-source, publicly-available information found on a public blockchain, Github, Twitter, and other public platforms. The crypto market is transparent and open to all, and has not had the types of mishaps seen in traditional financial markets.

This guide explains the structural differences between crypto and traditional financial markets. Specifically, it tackles the inefficiencies of traditional financial markets – how it may give competitive advantages to those with deep pockets and how technological advancements in the cryptoasset market will spill over in traditional markets as the old catches up with the new.
