Coinbase To Bring On-Chain Tokenized Real-World Assets

Coinbase Announces 'Project Diamond': Regulated Tokenization of Financial Assets on Blockchain

Coinbase, one of the major players in the cryptocurrency space, has announced its foray into an ambitious project called “Project Diamond.”

This project’s primary objective is to bring traditional financial assets to the world of blockchain in a regulated and efficient manner.

Coinbase’s asset management arm is leading this innovative project, which will allow institutional investors to create and trade digital financial assets, such as debt instruments, using the Base network, an Ethereum scaling solution.

Most notably, this entire process will be carried out under the regulatory supervision of Abu Dhabi, as the project has received in-principle approval from the Financial Services Regulated Activities Authority (FSRA) of the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM).

“Project Diamond” represents a significant step in the integration of blockchain technology and the Coinbase firm

This initiative seeks to provide financial institutions with a secure and regulated platform for the issuance and trading of digital assets.

The combination of Coinbase Prime custody, the exchange’s Web3 crypto wallet, Circle’s USDC stablecoin, and the Base layer 2 network has been designed with the goal of creating a robust and transparent capital market.

The tokenization of real-world assets (RWAs) has been considered a key component in this process.

Coinbase Revolutionizes Traditional Finance: Launches 'Project Diamond' to Tokenize Assets

Experts believe this transition can offer faster settlements, cheaper transactions and greater transparency compared to traditional financial structures.

Coinbase hopes to close the significant gap that currently exists in the representation of global assets in blockchain infrastructure.

With less than 0.25% of global assets represented on blockchain today , the company seeks to capture massive efficiencies by enabling institutional use of next-generation financial technology.

In a market where competition for asset tokenization is increasing, Coinbase has taken a bold step forward with “Project Diamond”, thereby establishing its position as a leader in transforming the traditional financial sector towards a digitalized and more efficient future.
