Figure 4: The concept of “tokenization” or turning a nondigital asset into its blockchain-based representation. While traditional understanding of blockchain “tokens” has centered around their potential monetary use, the true power of blockchain technology is represented by its ability to turn any quantifiable asset into a “token” that can then be quantifiably recorded and measured.[69] Some of the items that could be “tokenized” in the current context includes a publication's impact factor, a faculty's clinical relative value unit productivity, the number of citations per publication per year, or a grant award to a principal investigator[70]
