RWA Tokenization and Solutions

From long-standing, highly-liquid U.S. Treasuries to previously less accessible trade finance assets, real world assets (RWAs) have arrived in tokenized form on the XDC Network.

RWAs are becoming more accessible via blockchain technology and shaping the direction of the industry. There is a wide range of applications for RWAs, including U.S. Treasuries, trade finance, real estate, and anything where ownership of a tangible item can be represented digitally on-chain.

RWAs have existed in the blockchain space for several years serving as digital representations of off-chain assets. The effort to tokenize has recently gained traction with more traditional asset classes. 

RWAs have become a catalyst for network usage and digital asset adoption throughout all of blockchain technology. They create a gateway and a critical link between traditional finance and blockchain technology.

U.S. Tokenized Treasuries

Tokenized U.S. Treasuries represent a straightforward way to intersect traditional finance and digital assets. Typically backed by an exchange traded fund (ETF) with a large brokerage house, these RWAs are secured by U.S. Treasuries in the ETF that backs the RWA token. XDC Network hosts the USTY token that is secured by a Blackrock-managed U.S. Treasury ETF.

There are many sectors of loans — including real estate, auto, carbon, consumer, and fintech — and the average APR hovers near 9.5%.
