Major institutional players start to believe in our mission to tokenize the world’s (real world) assets onchain. Our goal is to launch new products and embark on new partnerships. In a nutshell we are continuing to solidify our position as a leader in bringing assets and funds onchain.:clap:

  • We’re still looking to fill two more roles! More details on the vacancies and the link to the application can be found here.

  • The Governance Call 26* with important topics related to the treasury on the agenda. The highlight was Lucas’ proposal to launch an RWA lending market (see below).
    *Reminder: If you haven’t joined a gov call previously, you can register in the forum post.
  • This is a huge proposal! :fire: Centrifuge should create a lending market focused on Real World Assets to give users the chance to lend and borrow against pool tokens. With this proposal being implemented it will bring additional utility to RWAs and it helps Centrifuge on the mission of bringing financial markets onchain.

    Two technical proposals to (a) introduce the Data Protocol within the Centrifuge network. It aims to establish Centrifuge as the single source of truth for issuers, facilitating transparent and compliant operations. The proposal for (b) Financial Reporting intends to build standardized real-time financial reporting for Pools in Centrifuge. The objective of this proposal is to improve the quality of on-chain and real time reporting available to pool issuers and investors.

:exclamation:Please actively participate in the governance process, leave your comments and remarks in the RFCs and vote on proposals​:exclamation: :ballot_box::writing_hand:


The Protocol is represented primarily by organizations that are actively using Centrifuge’s technology to facilitate the underwriting, structuring, and financing of RWAs.

Product & Engineering

  • Congratulations CFG DAO on the first Protocol Fees earned in Anemoy’s Liquid Treasury Fund! :rocket: The fees earned from the protocol and Centrifuge prime will ensure self-sustainability and are going to be used to fund future development and constant innovation of the protocol.
  • Pool updates from Databased Finance: the issuer placed some funds in the pool reserve to ensure all senior investors can withdraw their investments.
  • Last, but definitely not least, news from the Centrifuge Credit Group: Asset Primer on US non-Investment Grade Corporate Credit. This segment of fixed income provides higher yield in exchange for lower liquidity and credit quality.

Stay tuned for the next monthly update with more news, governance updates and developments from the ecosystem!
