Financial behemoth BlackRock has introduced its first tokenized fund on the Ethereum blockchain as part of its most recent cryptocurrency venture. BUIDL, or the BlackRock USD Institutional Digital Liquidity Fund, is fully secured by cash and bills issued by the United States Treasury as well as repurchase agreements. It offers qualified investors the chance to generate yields denominated in US dollars.


BlackRock has teamed up with BNY Mellon to serve as the fund’s asset custodian, and Securitize as a transfer agent and tokenization platform. In addition, BitGo, Coinbase, Fireblocks, and Anchorage Digital Bank NA make up the ecosystem of the fund, which will supply the fund with infrastructure.

Robert Mitchnick, head of digital assets at BlackRock, said, “This is the latest evolution of our digital assets strategy.” “We are thrilled to work with Securitize and are focused on creating solutions in the digital assets space that help solve real problems for our clients.”

Last year, the British Virgin Islands served as the initial registration location for the BlackRock USD Institutional Digital Liquidity Fund. For the fund, it submitted a Form D to the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

“BUIDL will provide significant advantages to investors by permitting ownership to be issued and traded on a blockchain, increasing investor access to on-chain offerings, facilitating instantaneous and transparent settlement, and facilitating cross-platform transfers,” according to BlackRock.


What is the BlackRock Fund’s operational framework and tokenization?

CryptoCaster Quick Check:

Tokenization is the process of digitally representing real-world assets on a blockchain. BlackRock has repeatedly stated that the introduction of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and the tokenization of financial assets are part of its digital asset strategy.

To participate in BUIDL, eligible investors must register with Securitize and create a digital wallet with at least $25 million in investable assets. A $5 million initial investment is required to access the fund. Tokens are available for purchase at a fixed price of $1, and investors can earn interest on their token purchases. On the blockchain network, transferring tokens between wallets is simple.

Everyone is seeking a share of the blockchain

A few months ago, BlackRock introduced iShares Bitcoin Trust, the biggest Bitcoin ETF, which has since continued to draw record inflows. Tokenized versions of money-market funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) have been introduced by other titans of the investment world, including Franklin Templeton and Ondo Finance.CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!

We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble. 

Around the world, readers can access the CryptoCaster’s paywall-free journalism because of our unique reader-supported model. That’s because of people like you. Our readers keep us independent, beholden to no outside influence and accessible to everyone – whether they can afford to pay for news and information, or not.
