In a landmark development for real-world asset tokenization, Hedera’s (HBAR) price surged an impressive 100% within 24 hours.

This remarkable rally came as BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, announced the tokenization of its US Treasury money market fund on Hedera in collaboration with Archax and OwneraIO.

Hedera’s Blockchain Advances: TradFi Integration Spurs Market Growth

This integration of traditional finance (TradFi) with Hedera’s blockchain technology signifies a major milestone, highlighting the network’s ability to attract institutional-grade projects due to its high speed, robust security, and low fees. Archax’s expansion of tokenized money market fund offerings has played a pivotal role in enhancing the range of financial instruments accessible to institutional clients.

“The addition of MMF shares tokenised on Hedera, enabled by Archax, is a huge vote of confidence. Hedera’s unmatched speed, security, and low-cost infrastructure is ideally suited for the institutional-grade tokenisation of real-world assets made possible by Archax.” Shayne Higdon, CEO of The HBAR Foundation, commented.

With this move, Hedera not only demonstrates its growing relevance in the financial sector but also confirms investor confidence in the network’s capability to handle significant financial instruments.
