5 min readMar 20, 2024

Ladies and gentlemen, fasten your seatbelts and prepare for takeoff as we embark on a journey to the heart of Permissionless Instant Liquidity for RWAs with Unlockd V2 mainnet launch. We’re celebrating it with an exclusive RWA luxury watches and trading cards giveaway!

Picture this: It’s the 27th of March, and the DeFi world as we know is about to change.

Why, you ask?

Because, Unlockd is rolling out the first permissionless liquidity protocol for Real-World Assets, and you’re all invited to the RWAs party with luxury giveaways from Franc Muller & Breitling watches and Vintage Pokémon cards, a full week of exciting live shows, and many more surprises!

Breaking the RWA Barriers: Unlockd V2 Mainnet Launch

By 2030, RWA tokenization will become a $16 Trillion industry. Even Larry Fink, CEO of BlackRock, says one of the most promising narratives in the blockchain space is the tokenization of RWAs.

Why is it not accessible for everyone?

Access to liquidity backed by RWAs is primarily controlled by centralized entities, including institutions and accredited investors. This exclusivity restricts broader access to these financial resources.

We all know this does not follow the ethos of blockchain technology. It is not the way RWA liquidity adoption will achieve that $16T mark.

Because the truth is that the frontier of Web3 lies in its permissionless design. Alongside our community, our V2 mainnet launch marks a pioneering step — creating the first truly open liquidity protocol for real-world assets.

Unlockd technology, powered by AI and machine learning, is the only solution that enables simple, smart lending and borrowing against RWAs for anyone, especially retail investors. No exclusive clubs or gatekeepers here.

On March 27th, we’re doing more than just launching a new protocol.

We’re creating a way for you to unlock the value tied up in your prized possessions — watches, collectibles, real estate, etc — and use them to access financial freedom.

Integrating tokenized assets from Unikura and Watches.io is the first step, but we’ll very soon expand into more chains, protocols and asset classes to tap into all of that previously illiquid RWA value. And you can be part of this journey starting now.

This is day one in unlocking the $16T RWAs Liquidity Odyssey!

From Testnet to Mainnet: A Journey of Collaboration

The journey began a month ago with the deployment of our Testnet, where we rigorously tested the core functionalities, security measures, and overall performance of our RWA-backed lending protocol with 3,000+ transactions.

The Testnet V2 phase kicked off this community-driven journey.
More than 800 users deposited liquidity, took out loans, participated in marketplace auctions, and earned special rewards — all while providing valuable feedback to help us shape the next generation of accessible finance.

We went through roughly 200+ responses manually to ensure community feedback is acknowledged. Talk about commitment…

Thanks to this, we’ve made several optimizations to Unlockd: from revising the “borrow” function user journey by reducing complexity and allowing users to take out loans smoothly, to a completely new Unlockd Account interface, improved UX and better accessibility of loan management and marketplace features (just like y’all asked!). Oh, and thanks for the nice comments about our aesthetics — we love them as well!

Finally, based on community feedback requesting more assets in the Earn section, we’ll be integrating instant swaps soon.

Building together in public. That’s how it should be done.

Mainnet V2: Features

Hold onto your hats, because we’re about to dive into the heart of Unlockd V2.

Here’s a sneak peek of what’s in store:

1. Earn: Imagine your assets working overtime while you sleep, generating liquidity that fuels our revolutionary Peer-To-Pool model. Sounds like a dream, right? Now, also auto compounding your exponential gains.

2. Borrow: Need a quick financial boost without saying goodbye to your treasures? Our instant, open-ended, RWA-backed loans are your new best friend.

3. Loan Lifecycle: With features like bundling multiple NFTs into a single collateral, adding or removing assets, keeping their on-chain utility and seamless listing or selling options (even with debt!), managing your loans is like a walk in the park.

4. Marketplace: For auction enthusiasts and instant buyers, our Marketplace is your new playground. From Bid-Now-Pay-Later features to instant purchases, we’ve got it all for you to get your hands on a discounted treasure.

The Road Ahead: Partnerships & Supported RWAs

As we explore new paths in innovation, our focus is on supporting RWAs through ecosystem partnerships, guiding us toward exciting opportunities ahead.

We’re kicking things off with our partners Unikura and Watches.io, unlocking liquidity for luxury timepieces and coveted Japanese collectibles like trading cards.

But this dynamic duo is just the opening salvo. Our sights are set on real estate, gold, diamonds, other collectibles and an ever-expanding roster of tokenized asset classes.

Strap in, because Unlockd is going big — significantly expanding the range of assets you can put to work on our platform. These collectibles are merely the first stop on this liquidity odyssey.

Why This Matters to You

Now, you might be wondering, “Why should I care?”

Well, aside from the chance to win some exclusive RWAs, Unlockd V2 mainnet launch signifies a shift in the financial landscape to allow Instant Liquidity to users seeking to utilize their RWAs.

Instant Liquidity. No Middlemen. No Financial Gatekeepers

And let’s not forget the cherry on top: our V2 Airdrop launch. With our token launch on the horizon (spoiler!), this is one airdrop you won’t want to miss.

Mark Your Calendars!

March 27th, 2024, is not just another day; it’s the dawn of a new era.

An era where your watches and trading cards open doors to new financial possibilities, starting with our first integrations — Unikura and Watches.io.
