Zoth Expands Its On-Chain Trade Finance Facility in Singapore Through the XDC Network

Singapore, 26th March 2024, ZEX PR WIRE, Zoth, a real-world assets (RWA) protocol that bridges traditional finance with on-chain finance has successfully scaled its on-chain trade finance facility by tokenizing receivables in Southeast Asia using TradeFinex on the XDC Network. This expands Zoth’s vision across the Middle East, LATAM, and Southeast Asia, creating a global liquidity infrastructure to address global trade challenges. The receivables tokenization utilized TradeFinex’s open-source smart contract standards and was funded by Zoth’s LP Ecosystem using the Fathom Dollar $FXD.

This deal involves Zoth facilitating liquidity for the Singapore subsidiary of a US entity, a global leader in e-learning, while the counterparty is a government entity of Singapore. The transaction was done on the XDC Network blockchain, with TradeFinex, a dApp within the XDC ecosystem being one of the liquidity providers for the deal. This facility raised $FXD 350,000 for the entity, with plans to expand financing to USD10 million via Zoth, which is focused on driving trade finance in Southeast Asia. 

The success of this deal highlights the efficiency of blockchain-based financing for real-world challenges powered by Zoth’s proprietary Technology.
