Horizon makes it easy for anybody to create assets and that’s why we felt it was necessary to create some kind of quality control. That’s why we’re going to separate the wheat from the chaff!
To become a trusted asset, the asset issuer will need to prove their legitimacy. This means that they need to be verifiable and not hide behind a cloak of secrecy. The trusted assets will demonstrate an ability to promote themselves in an honest and open way and be able to keep in contact with its investors.
Trusted assets will also have the benefit of being listed in future versions of the Horizon wallet.
