These insights led to building Aconomy: https://earlyaccess.aconomy.io/, an RWA-backed DEX for direct on-chain asset tokenization and trading, with a vision of a greener, more circular asset economy. This vision guided the development and refinement of our test product, informed by user feedback and interviews, laying the groundwork for our innovative solution.

About Aconomy

Aconomy is a decentralized asset tokenization platform that empowers individuals to seamlessly tokenize and trade their real-world assets on-chain. With a vision to foster a parallel on-chain asset economy, Aconomy enables its users to tokenize real-world assets ranging from vintage watches and luxury art to rare books. As an asset tokenization company, Aconomy is revolutionizing interactions with tangible assets by democratizing on-chain asset ownership through the dematerialization of RWAs. With the focus on enhancing liquidity in real-world asset classes, Aconomy enables the asset validators to stake their validator collateral (if required) in USDT in asset-NFT to not only validate & vouch for the asset's authenticity but also transform them into Pi-NFT (with 1:1 backing & induced liquidity). This transformation opens up a pathway for numerous asset trading opportunities on-chain like selling, auctioning, lending, swapping, and redeeming  -  all in a secure and transparent manner, which are not often available in the traditional economy.
