Real World Assets (RWA) on Lumia L2

Real World Assets (RWAs) represent tangible or intangible assets from the physical world that have been tokenized on the blockchain. Lumia L2 focuses on bringing these assets on-chain, creating new opportunities for investment, liquidity, and financial innovation.

Specifically, Lumia L2 specializes in tokenizing commodities such as diamonds, aluminium, copper, iron ore, silver, gold, and other precious metals.

Regulatory Compliance and Bailee Agreements

Lumia Foundation is taking significant steps to ensure regulatory compliance and legal accountability for RWA tokenization:

  1. Acquiring Licenses: Lumia Foundation is in the process of obtaining necessary licensing from regulatory authorities in the UAE and Australia. These licenses will provide a solid legal framework for RWA tokenization operations.

  2. Leveraging Bailment Agreements: By utilizing Bailment Agreements, Lumia L2 can legally tokenize various commodities. A Bailment Agreement allows possession of a physical asset to remain with a trusted custodian whilst ownership is represented by a token allowing seamless trading of the asset on the Blockchain 24 hours 7 days per week.

  3. Legal Protection: The licensing and regular audit reports of the commodities and their condition provides strong legal protection for asset owners and token holders, ensuring that the tokenized assets are backed by real, verifiable commodities.

Tokenization Process on Lumia L2

Lumia L2 provides a seamless and legally compliant process for RWA owners to tokenize their assets:

  1. Asset owners provide proof of ownership, necessary documentation, and undergo required due diligence.

  2. A Bailment Agreement is established between the asset owner and Lumia Foundation.

  3. The asset is valued by approved third-party appraisers and tokenized on Lumia L2.

  4. Tokens representing the RWA are created and can be fractionalized if desired.

  5. These tokens are then made available for trading or used as collateral in DeFi applications.

Bringing Liquidity to RWAs

One of the key challenges with RWAs in the blockchain space has been providing sufficient liquidity. Lumia L2 addresses this challenge through its innovative Lumia Stream system, which bridges centralized exchange (CEX) and decentralized exchange (DEX) liquidity.

Lumia Stream: Bridging CEX and DEX Liquidity

Lumia Stream acts as a liquidity aggregator, pulling together liquidity from both centralized and decentralized sources. This creates a deep and diverse liquidity pool that can be accessed by RWA tokens, solving one of the primary obstacles to RWA adoption in DeFi.

Liquidity Provisioning for RWAs

  1. RWA tokens are integrated into Lumia Pools, which use a constant product formula (e.g., 50% RWA, 50% Stablecoin).

  2. Lumia Stream creates liquidity nodes for RWA tokens, allowing for efficient market-making.

  3. The DNLP (Delta Neutral Liquidity Provision) Smart Contract locks assets and provides additional liquidity support.

  4. Centralized exchanges can provide off-chain hedging opportunities, further enhancing liquidity.

Making RWAs DeFi Composable

By bringing significant liquidity to RWA tokens, Lumia L2 enables these assets to become fully composable within the DeFi ecosystem:

  1. Collateralization: RWA tokens can be used as collateral in lending protocols, allowing users to borrow against their real-world assets.

  2. Yield Generation: Liquidity providers can earn yields by contributing RWA tokens to Lumia Pools.

  3. Cross-Chain Availability: Through Lumia L2's interoperability features, RWA tokens can be made available across multiple blockchain networks.

  4. Derivative Products: The increased liquidity allows for the creation of derivative products based on RWAs, such as options or futures contracts.

Benefits and Use Cases

  • Increased Access: Investors can gain exposure to real-world hard commodities that were previously difficult to access or illiquid.

  • Fractional Ownership: Large assets can be fractionalized, allowing for smaller investment amounts and increased diversification.

  • Efficient Trading: The deep liquidity provided by Lumia Stream enables efficient trading of RWA tokens with minimal slippage.

  • New Financial Products: DeFi protocols can create innovative financial products using RWAs as building blocks.

  • Regulatory Compliance: Lumia L2's approach ensures that RWA tokenization adheres to regulatory requirements, providing confidence to institutional investors and regulatory bodies.

By leveraging the Lumia Stream system, its unique approach to liquidity provision, and its commitment to regulatory compliance through proper licensing and Bailee Agreements, Lumia L2 is positioned to become a leading platform for hard commodity tokenization and trading in the DeFi space. This approach not only opens up new investment opportunities but also ensures the legal and regulatory soundness of RWA tokenization.
