Optimism is high for 2024, and many companies are developing crypto services for institutions. The steps taken by Akbank and Garanti Bank this week are noteworthy, while Coinbase is also making a significant move for institutions with Project Diamond and what you need to know about it.
Project Diamond is a smart contract-supported platform that allows institutions to create, issue, and sell their own crypto assets. Less than 0.25% of global assets represented on blockchain infrastructure are missing the opportunity to capture significant efficiency gains.
The existence of companies like Chainlink and Coinbase, which work on the tokenization of real-world assets, is the reason for the recent excitement in the RWA (Real-World Asset) field. Operating on the Base network, Project Diamond facilitates processes such as a company’s issuance of blockchain-based debt securities.
For now, Project Diamond will serve corporate customers outside the United States. Having received approval on principles in Abu Dhabi, Project Diamond is trading regularly.
Coinbase Asset Management and the project launched by Coinbase could announce significant partnerships in the future. The excitement generated by these partnerships could lead to positive fluctuations in Coinbase (COIN) stock, due to the fact that the Base network does not have its own native token.
