NEW YORK, Nov. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — For the first time ever, users on
, a lightning-fast blockchain for Web3 finance applications, can acquire tokenized US Treasuries in the form of the USD Yield token (“USDY”) from
. Ondo is the market leader in connecting traditional financial assets to blockchain networks, with over $200 million of its tokenized US Treasuries circulating today.
USDY is the world’s first tokenized note secured by US Treasuries, providing similar accessibility and utility as stablecoins. Tokenized US Treasuries have fueled the growth of the real-world assets sector, where traditional financial assets are made available on blockchains so that investors can leverage benefits from the technology such as 24/7 global transferability and compatibility with decentralized financial application. The market capitalization of real-world assets has
from $100 million to over $704 million since the beginning of 2023, with Ondo leading the way.
Eric Chen, co-founder and CEO of Injective Injective Labs, expressed his view on Ondo’s integration, stating, “Ondo is rapidly redefining the real-world asset market, and for the first time in history users will be able to access tokenized treasuries directly across Injective native dApps. This integration signifies a key milestone in making traditional financial instruments accessible within the DeFi ecosystem. Injective is continuing to pave the way towards truly connecting traditional finance with the blockchain world.”
Users will be able to access USDY either by bridging USDY over to Injective from Ethereum using the Injective Hub or via a host of native dApps built on Injective such as Helix, the premier decentralized exchange on the network. Injective has directly integrated some of the largest institutions on its chain, enabling the highest levels of liquidity and capital efficiency for real-world assets.
The introduction of USDY to Injective will mark the first time that users across the Cosmos ecosystem can access tokenized treasuries. The integration with Ondo also cements Injective’s position as a leading L1 for both interoperability and real-world assets. USDY is only available on Ethereum and Mantle, an EVM rollup, to date, making this release its first expansion outside of the EVM environment.
“We are delighted to offer a yield-bearing product that incorporates mature financial structuring and robust investor protections while catering to the diverse needs of both individual and institutional investors. USDY is a significant stride towards a more inclusive and secure financial landscape,” said Nathan Allman, CEO of Ondo Finance.
