🏦 T-Bills for Retail - A First?: WOO X RWA Earn Vaults

Just this morning we’re seeing news come out of the Seychelles with WOO X, a crypto exchange looking to get into the RWA game.

According to a CoinDesk article, “Woo X is claiming bragging rights for being the first cryptocurrency exchange to offer retail customers exposure to tokenized U.S. Treasury bills.”

Under the name of RWA Earn Vaults, WOO X is collaborating with OpenTrade to make this accessible seamlessly on their existing platform. Users can now earn stable, predictable yields without the high volatility and risk that comes with other products

Key features include:

  • Currency: USDC

  • Yield (APR): 4.5 - 4.7%

  • Backing Asset: US Treasury bills

Looking a bit deeper, t-bill-backed Earn Vaults are available at 7-day (~4.5%) and 28-day terms (~4.75%) without further onboarding. This is a great way to bring a crypto-native audience closer to the onchain securities and RWA space, starting with an easy-to-understand asset such as treasuries.

Separately, OpenTrade recently secured a $3.2M seed round from a16z crypto CSX, CMCC Global, Draper Dragon, Plassa Capital, and Ryze Labs to propel the development of their “RWA Yield as a service” product. This positions them well to replicate what they’ve done with WOO X on other platforms, bringing more crypto investors to the security token space.

Your Second Captivating Topic of the Week

👉 From Treasuries to Bonds: PV01

Speaking of treasuries and RWAs, we have another piece of news coming out of Bermuda from PV01, tokenizing a treasuries and moving into corporate bonds!

Max Boonen and Flavio Molendini have recently tokenized $5M in treasuries via a bond following English law. The bond represented a single treasury bill as a security token on Ethereum on April 8th and redeemed the following week, earning 5.10%. PV01’s differentiator, however, is that they’re hosting the bond’s entire lifecycle onchain unlike other issuers that use a wrapper on the underlying treasury or money market fund.

This proof of concept experienced participation from B2C2 (Boonen’s market maker), BlockTower Capital, and Keyrock. With PV01 already proving the model for treasuries, they’re looking to expand to offering corporate bonds also fully onchain.

The market makers are very keen to provide over-the-counter liquidity for the Treasury bond tokens, because one of their big objectives is to be able to use the tokens as collateral to support their trading activity

Max Boonen told CoinDesk

According our data, we’ve seen over $10B in bonds issued around the world with the majority in market cap coming from Germany and Asia. With PV01 looking to start their first corporate bond issuance in a few months we’ll be keeping an eye out for it and tracking on STM.Co
