Centrifuge, a DeFi protocol for financing real-world assets, has announced a strategic partnership with BlockTower, a crypto and blockchain investment firm, and announced a $3 million treasury sale to build the future real-world assets on-chain. Following the partnership, BlockTower is expected to bring institutional capital and assets to the Centrifuge protocol and therefore significantly accelerate the financing of RWAs on-chain.

Besides the partnership announcement, Centrifuge also announced its second $3 million treasury token sale.

The partnership highlights the importance of investing in real-world assets for both crypto and traditional investors. It goes ahead to show BlockTower’s conviction in the future of RWAs while also underlining Centrifuge’s reputation as a leading DeFi protocol in the space of real-world assets.
