The leading DeFi projects partners up with Likvidi to help fight climate change
Singapore, Singapore, Nov. 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IX Swap, a decentralized exchange for security tokens and tokenized stocks, has announced a partnership agreement with blockchain-based green finance platform Likvidi. The deal will allow the two companies to launch a next-generation, transparent secondary market for sustainable investments. More specifically, the Likvidi platform is opening up opportunities to invest in digital assets in the sustainability sector, starting with high-yield green bonds that can yield between 5-12% annually.
The joint project is a result of IX Swap and Likvidi teams’ commitment to impact investing and blockchain-based digital securities that offer better transparency for investors and are more efficient. Both companies are acting in accordance with the 2015 Paris Agreement and the ongoing Cop26 meeting in Glasgow, Scotland.
“Our existing DeFi ecosystem largely revolves around the ability for cryptocurrencies and NFTs to be staked, borrowed, and lent. The current DeFi applications for STOs are limited to none despite the exponential growth of the STO market. IX Swaps seeks to provide the necessary infrastructure to provide secondary liquidity to all STOs globally and seeks to accelerate the adoption of STOs through valuable partnerships like Likvidi who bring real assets onto the blockchain,” said Aaron Ong, Co-Founder of IX Swap.
”Our tokenized green bonds together with IX Swap’s automated market making and liquidity pools will bring new investors and projects to DeFi. Our mission is to enable more investments towards renewable energy projects using green bonds for funding. The idea of global liquidity will certainly help us finance more solar parks and wind farms around the world,” said Ransu Salovaara, CEO of Likvidi.
Green bonds represent the largest growing sector of sustainable finance totalling one trillion dollars. Through the new, blockchain-based offering, investments can have much better transparency to green investments. Additionally, by turning smaller $10-100 million green bonds into digital assets, these relatively illiquid securities will have more liquidity and allow the partnership to improve this fast-growing fixed-income market.
