Partner Spotlight: Zoth - Financial Connectivity in On-chain Finance

April 18th, 2024Victoria Calmon

Real-World Assets (RWAs) refer to tangible assets such as real estate, commodities, or securities that exist outside the digital realm. These assets have traditionally been confined within closed financial systems, inaccessible to many due to various barriers such as centralization, high investment thresholds and reliance on intermediaries. However, this paradigm is shifting with the emergence of platforms like Zoth. By tokenizing RWAs and making them accessible on blockchain networks, Zoth is facilitating new opportunities for users to access traditionally exclusive assets.

About Zoth

Zoth operates as an ecosystem that facilitates liquidity flow between traditional finance and on-chain finance, accelerating the influx of assets and capital across these sectors. At its core, Zoth-Fi represents an institutional-grade fixed income marketplace, offering investors access to top-tier fixed income assets through stablecoins. With a diverse range of asset classes including trade finance receivables, sovereign government bonds, t-bills and corporate credits, Zoth aims to blur the lines between traditional and on-chain finance, unlocking new opportunities for enhanced liquidity and efficient tokenization mechanisms for RWAs.

Zoth’s Mission and Vision

Zoth envisions a future where the boundaries between traditional finance and on-chain finance are dissolved, enabling widespread access to sustainable RWAs and fostering global financial inclusion. The mission of Zoth is to accelerate the flow of capital into sustainable RWAs, making finance fairer and more accessible on a global scale.

Why Partner with Mento Labs?

Zoth and Mento Labs’ collaboration signifies a concerted effort to bolster financial accessibility and stability. By leveraging the Mento decentralized stablecoin, cUSD (Celo Dollar), Zoth expands its range of use cases. It offers users protection against currency devaluation and fosters financial empowerment, especially in regions impacted by unstable currencies through the provision of stable currency yield. Mento enables the cUSD to gain significant utility by being backed by yield generated from secured real-world assets.

"Mento Labs is thrilled to build robust infrastructure that supports financial inclusion and innovation in the DeFi space."

"At Zoth, we believe in the power of collaboration to drive meaningful change in the financial landscape. By integrating Mento Labs' cUSD stablecoin into our ecosystem, we empower users with access to secure and sustainable financial products, fostering economic growth and stability," commented Pritam Dutta, Founder and CEO at Zoth.
