Partnering with SOFA.org as Founding Member to Support Development of an On-chain Settlement Framework for Crypto Structured Products

Our investment arm, OKX Ventures, today announced that it has become a founding member of SOFA.org, an open-source and non-profit decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) focused on developing a DeFi ecosystem that facilitates atomic, blockchain-based settlements of financial assets.

Through its collaboration with SOFA.org, we seek to support the development of a secure, industry-wide on-chain settlement framework. This is a critical component for the upcoming growth wave of real-world assets (RWA) tokenization.

With its first protocol's mainnet launched on June 7, SOFA.org aims to offer a transparent, request-for-quote (RFQ)-driven marketplace for crypto structured products, enabling execution between depositors and market makers through ready-made dApps and standardized vaults. The protocol ensures maximum security as it eliminates counterparty risks by transferring assets to smart contract vaults, which act as on-chain custodians. Users stand to gain additional yield from a diverse range of products with robust downside protection.

In addition, vital instrument parameters are immutably stored on the protocol at the smart contract level, enabling tokenization of authentic risk positions that can be recognized by both DeFi and CeFi platforms. This tokenization of risk positions improves the efficiency of DeFi capital, and benefits both DeFi and CeFi sectors.
