  • The future of Real-world asset tokenization could be revolutionized by Chainlink’s CCIP.
  • Using Chainlink’s Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol (CCIP), atomic settlement of tokenized RWAs can be managed seamlessly.

Chainlink’s Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol (CCIP) is a promising protocol that is designed to solve existing problems in the tokenization industry. According to a recent finding from Chainlink, CCIP can improve atomic settlements in Real-world asset tokenization.

Chainlink’s CCIP is a secure interoperability protocol Powered by Chainlink’s industry-standard oracle networks and functions similarly to TCP/IP. The protocol promises to advance the structure of smart contracts on a broad scale. CCIP allows Chainlink oracles to cater to multi-chain environments, and serve a collaborative blockchain ecosystem.

Recent reports reveal that CCIP can tackle some major problems in the onchain finance sector. Notably, onchain finance is designed to feature a wide variety of public and private blockchains that support trillions of dollars’ worth of real-world assets (RWAs).

For the full potential of onchain finance to be fully realized, tokenized RWAs will need three major capabilities. RWAs must be securely transferred cross-chain, connected to offchain data despite the chain they’re moved to, and enriched with real-world information.

Chainlink, which has notably enabled more than $8.8 trillion in transactional value on its decentralized computation platform is well-equipped to solve these requirements for tokenized real-world assets. The network also can maintain a high level of security demanded by institutions while solving the aforementioned problems.
For institutions, CCIP makes it possible for a single integration gateway to connect backend infrastructure to blockchain networks.

SWIFT and ANZ already tapped to access CCIP ‘s benefits

This will bring sustainability to institutions as they will be able to save time, reduce costs, and minimize risks. Institutions will also be able to launch new products at a faster pace. They will also no longer be required to directly integrate with individual chains. CCIP will allow organizations to depend on it as an abstraction layer that can connect to and across multiple chains.

CCIP also meets the strict security standards of capital markets by operating at the highest level of cross-chain security. As a result, CCIP has intrigued the likes of SWIFT and ANZ, as both institutions have partnered with Chainlink on the usage of CCIP for cross-chain tokenized asset settlement.

Priding itself as a protocol that strives to meet universal blockchain interoperability standards, CCIP also enables real-world assets to flow seamlessly between different blockchains, thereby broadening accessibility and widening the global market liquidity. Speaking on the benefits of CCIP, Sergey Nazarov, the Co-founder of Chainlink is quoted saying;

Just like key standards such as TCP/IP remade a fragmented early Internet into the single global Internet we all know and use today, we are making CCIP to connect the fragmented public blockchain landscape and the growing bank chain ecosystem into a single Internet of Contracts.
