AllianceBlock, a provider of blockchain infrastructure that bridges traditional finance (TradFi) and decentralized finance (DeFi), has partnered with digital investment firm ABO Digital to offer institutional and retail investors a lower-risk, compliant way of financially backing crypto projects through tokenization. The tie-in comes as tokenized assets continue to gain steam, with investment giant Hamilton Lane offering tokenized exposure to one of its funds earlier this year.
The structured products under the partnership will offer alternative fundraising options for crypto projects, such as issuing tokens to market makers or venture capitalists. Projects can also access more liquidity from institutional investors.
ABO Digital – the digital asset investment arm of the ABO Group, which provides private financing for publicly-listed companies – will help negotiate and structure the financial instruments based on a project’s capital and liquidity goals. AllianceBlock will tokenize the assets and turn them into compliant Actively Managed Certificates (AMCs), a type of structured product that lets an investor track and benefit an underlying asset without having direct ownership.
“With our combined effort, we aim to bring a fresh perspective to the world of decentralized and traditional finance and attract more institutional capital providers,” said ABO Digital CEO Amine Nedjai in the press release.
