1 Introduction

Asset properties gives NXT users the ability to permanently ‘tag’ any asset with a small amount of data. These properties tags can be used to provide meta-information about an asset, for example:

  • A company can tag an asset to be identified as part of their ecosystem.
  • A venture capital that manages different investments in form of assets, which can be tagged from a master account to set them as either approve, approval process or rejected
  • For managing the lifecycle of a tokenized asset. For instance, a singleton asset that represents a renting vehicle can be tagged as on duty or in the workshop for calculating working hours
