Bringing Real world assets on Blockchain

Decentralized Finance (DeFi) is the umbrella term used to describe financial services that are conducted on public blockchains. With DeFi, you can do most of the things that banks support—earn interest, borrow, lend, buy insurance, trade derivatives, trade assets—but it’s faster and doesn’t require paperwork or a third party.

Recently, there has been one new innovation in the field of DeFi: Real World Assets (RWAs). This integration of non-crypto-related assets has substantial implications for the whole industry. A now $300+ billion sector, DeFi sees RWAs as the next opportunity to increase its market size exponentially.

In the recent episode of web3 unlocked podcast, we spoke to Lucas Vogelsang, CEO, and Co-Founder of Centrifuge, focusing on bringing Real World Assets to Defi since the early days of Ethereum. During the discussion, Lucas covers the future of Defi, the Polkadot ecosystem, and his experiences of being a founder in the Web3 bear market.

Lucas had always been passionate about computers and coding. But, in 2017, after working in the tech space for seven years, he decided that he wanted to revolutionize the finance industry and use blockchain to build the backbone for financial transactions. That’s how Centrifuge was born and became a platform to help people access capital for future needs.

Multi-Chain Session: Bringing Real-World Assets to Moonbeam featuring Centrifuge

In this session of Multi-Chain Sessions, Alberto from the Moonbeam team sits down with Centrifuge, a Polkadot Parachain, to discuss unlocking capital for real-world assets using DeFi, use cases, and the role XCM will play in the Centrifuge-Moonbeam interaction.

Centrifuge is a Proof-of-Stake blockchain built on Substrate that enables users to bring their assets on-chain as non-fungible tokens (NFTs). This is the starting point to unlock financing for any type of asset through DeFi. Centrifuge Chain is bridged to Ethereum, but uses its own native token – the Centrifuge (CFG) token.
