Unprecedented Move: FTX Creditors Harness Tokenized Claims for Mysterious DeFi Loans — www.cryptopolitan.com — 25 June 2023 (LINK)
— In a groundbreaking development within the decentralized finance (DeFi) sector, a creditor of the now-bankrupted crypto exchange FTX has utilized a tokenized claim as collateral for a loan. The transaction, facilitated by the DeFi protocol Arcade, marks the first on-chain loan backed by an FTX claim. This innovative approach to collateralization highlights the growing trend of real-world asset tokenization within the DeFi ecosystem.
The creditor, seeking to recoup losses incurred due to FTX's bankruptcy, pledged a claim worth $31,307 as collateral for a loan in the DeFi protocol Arcade. To facilitate this process, the claim was tokenized, representing its ownership rights through a nonfungible token (NFT). The tokenized claim, functioning as a digital representation of the original asset, provided the necessary collateral for the loan. By tokenizing the claim, its liquidity and transferability were enhanced, enabling its use within the DeFi ecosystem.
