Blackrock and tokenization

Ondo Finance and Reserve Rights Token have jumped sharply this year, helped by the ongoing tokenization trend.

Tokenization is the process where companies or individuals transform assets into tokens, making them easier to move and trade. 

Analysts believe that tokenization is one of the most important use cases of the blockchain technology. One can easily transform a Real World Asset (RWA) like real estate and vehicle and then unlock its value.

Many large companies have embraced the tokenization technology. In 2023, JP Morgan unveiled its platform, helping move funds between Barclays and Blackrock. Other companies like ANZ Bank and London Stock Exchange (LSE) have moved to the industry.

The most recent entrant to the tokenization industry is Blackrock, the biggest asset manager in the world with over $10 trillion in assets. The company is working to tokenize these assets through a partnership with Securitize.

This is a big move because of the role that Blackrock plays in the financial services industry. It is the biggest owner of companies, meaning that many corporates follow its lead.

Most recently, Blackrock helped to lead the charge in the Bitcoin ETF space. Today, its iShares Bitcoin Trust (IBIT) has become a juggernaut with over $15 billion in assets. 

Ondo Finance and Reserve Rights surge

Therefore, investors have bought some of the top tokenization cryptocurrencies. Ondo Finance is a company backed by Founders Fund and Coinbase. It is in the tokenization industry, where it provides investment solutions to people from around the world.

Its current products are US Dollar Yield (USDY), which has over $104.2 million in assets. The token gives an annual APY of 5.10%. It also has the US Treasuries (OUSG) with $94 million in assets and an APY of 4.96%. US Money Markets (OMMF) is expected to launch soon and will offer a 4.73% return.

These tokens are better than traditional stablecoins like Tether and USD Coin. Tether and USDC make money by investing funds in safe government bonds. They keep these profits, meaning that long-term holders lose value to inflation. Ondo is solving this problem by giving out returns that are above inflation.

Reserve Rights is another player in the tokenization industry. The network lets users create RTokens, which are stable asset-backed currencies independent of fiat money. Its tokens are overcollateralized, which helps to ensure safety. The most recent data shows that Reserve Rights has added over $86 million in assets.
