The TradFi Wave: Sologenic’s Role in Leading the Movement

3 min readMar 21, 2024


The financial industry is on the cusp of a transformative era as traditional finance (TradFi) institutions begin to explore and adopt the tokenization of assets, leveraging the capabilities of the blockchain to innovate and improve their operations. Among the leading entities in this transition, Sologenic stands out with its robust tokenization solutions, aiming to bridge the gap between conventional financial markets and the world of digital assets.

The TradFi Wave

On Wednesday, BlackRock, a leading asset management firm, announced the launch of its tokenized asset fund on the Ethereum network. The fund, named the BlackRock USD Institutional Digital Liquidity Fund, utilizes the BUIDL token, a blockchain-based asset that is fully backed by cash, U.S. Treasury bills, and repurchase agreements. “This is the latest progression of our digital assets strategy,” said Robert Mitchnick, BlackRock’s Head of Digital Assets. “We are focused on developing solutions in the digital assets space that help solve real problems for our clients.”

Further advancements by traditional financial institutions have seen a wide range of use cases with promising results.

  • JPMorgan Chase — JPMorgan Chase launched its in-house tokenization platform in late 2023, The Tokenized Collateral Network. An application that allows investors to utilize assets as collateral. Using blockchain technology, investors can transfer collateral ownership without moving assets in underlying ledgers.
  • Franklin TempletonFranklin Templeton Money Market Fund launched on Polygon in 2023 as the first U.S.-registered mutual fund to use a public blockchain to process transactions and record share ownership.
  • HSBCHSBC launched tokenized ownership of physical gold held in its London vault on Wednesday, noting its use of distributed ledger technology (DLT) to trade the assets. The approach “generates a permissioned digital representation of clients’ physical gold holdings.”
  • Citigroup — Citi Token Services for cash management and trade finance. The service uses blockchain technology and smart contracts to deliver digital asset solutions for institutional clients.

Shifting Markets

The move towards tokenization is not merely a trend but a strategic shift necessary for achieving scalability and efficiency in financial operations. BlackRock’s development in this realm illustrates the practical application and benefits of this technology. By encoding the fund’s distribution rules into a smart contract and utilizing tokenized assets, the BUIDL Fund and BlackRock demonstrates the feasibility and efficiency gains from integrating smart contracts and blockchain into traditional financial processes.

Sologenic and Tokenization

With its comprehensive tokenization platform, including the recently launched XRPL Coreum Bridge and the soon to launch XLS-30 AMM, the platform offers a seamless pathway to tokenize a wide array of assets and explore their DeFi capabilities.

The implications of asset tokenization extend beyond simplification and efficiency. It opens up new avenues for investment, democratizes access to previously illiquid assets, and fosters a more inclusive financial ecosystem.
