Tokenized Investment Assets

The Stellar network is a leader in the tokenized investment space, especially in the tokenized U.S. Treasuries space. By tokenizing securities on the Stellar blockchain issuers can benefit from improved operational resilience and capital efficiency.

How Tokenized Investment Assets Work

Tokenized investment assets include securities and commodities such as money market funds, ETFs, bonds, gold, and more, can all be issued on the Stellar network.

Tokenized Securities
A tokenized security is a particular type of financial instrument - a “security” - ownership of which is represented digitally by a token on a blockchain.

Tokenized Commodities
A tokenized commodity is a digital asset whose value is pegged to real-world assets (similar to how stablecoins function). Issuers use the blockchain to create a digital representation of the commodity and, ideally, ensure the digital asset is backed by reserves of the real-world commodity.

After tokenizing their assets, issuers can make them available through a digital wallet. In some cases, institutions choose to make these assets available in a closed wallet environment, while others may make them available to customers through multiple wallets, exchanges or on and off-ramps.

Disclaimer: Note, security and commodities issuers should ensure their assets follow regulatory requirements.
