Why DeFi plus asset tokenization will take cryptocurrencies to new heights

In previous years, we have seen numerous attempts to bring real-world assets to the crypto market. However, none of them have proven to be massively adopted among retail cryptocurrency users and traditional financial players. So why hasn’t real-world asset tokenization become a massive trend? The real world assets used by the protocol must have a transparent source of prices available on demand by any user of the protocol. This requires not only selecting an asset capable of meeting this requirement, but also building a pricing oracle that will transfer collateral information.
