Digital Asset

Before the advent of computers, any tangible asset owned by a company that had monetary value was the company’s entire asset. Today, the ubiquity of computers has forced the creation of two very specific asset classes: digital assets and tangible assets.

A digital asset is a virtual or intangible asset in binary (digital) format that includes a property right. Digital assets therefore have a digital value and consist mainly of digital documents (software) and multimedia content (images, sounds, graphics and videos) that are either in circulation (such as crypto-currencies and digital tokens) or stored on digital media (computers, hard drives, etc.).

Online stores, among others, are digital assets stored on digital media, in this case hosting servers.
