The iShares bond ETF UCITS from BlackRock, which tracks a mixture of short-term U.S. Treasury bills, has been transformed into tokens as a result of the tokenization protocol. The ticker of blBO1 is used in the tokenized version.

However, Backed co-founder Adam Levi explained that was just the beginning.

“We can tokenize anything held in a bank account–and we look forward to expanding our product offering,” he said. “Organizations benefit from not having to interface with TradFi or develop their own legal process by working with Backed for RWA tokenization.” 


Real-world assets (RWA) include things like stocks, commodities, works of art, and collectibles. Base is a layer-2 network developed by Coinbase using Optimism’s OP stack. It’s yet another optimistic rollup designed to reduce costs and relieve congestion on Ethereum.

Work with Base began in February of this year, according to Levi, who also continued by saying that Backed was particularly interested in collaborating with the network due to its “promised support for builders and developers.”

RWAs have been included, which is a first for the quick blockchain network, but it does so at a time when asset classes and the tokenization movement have recently gained prominence.


Several decentralized finance protocols, including Aave and Maker, have turned to RWAs to generate money for the protocols as a result of high interest rates and low cryptocurrency prices. To create yield on its native stablecoin named DAI, Maker, for instance, has already integrated U.S. treasuries.

“Right now, fixed-income products seem to be in the most demand, and recently protocols and users have shown specific interest in non-USD denominated short-term bonds,” said Levi.

He stated that his team is still awaiting market interest when asked when tokenized versions of Google or Tesla will be available on the blockchain. “If there is demand, we are happy to tokenized any security that is requested.”

American investors might then also be able to take part. U.S. investors are purposefully restricted from trading any of Backed’s tokenized offers for the time being.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.
