Our ecosystem framework emulates the basic functionalities of traditional finance, laying a strong foundation for a RWA-based DeFi infrastructure:

Data: enable instantaneous access of real world data on-chain, including asset pricing, loan performance, transaction records, etc

Tools: enable execution of financial transactions, including data analytics, notary services, contract signing, asset valuation, KYC/AML, etc

Insurance: provide flexible, economical and quantifiable solutions to mitigate financial risks

Liquidity: access to on and off-chain sources of funding, capital and liquidity

Asset Originator: access investment grade real world assets evaluated and approved by accredited validators

We rely on our partners to help further define the scope of the above mentioned categories, needless to say, we’re also excited about working with protocols to expand the overall ecosystem. As DeFi is still in its infancy, a partnership-driven ecosystem will be the catalyst to transform the industry. As Steve Elop, CEO of Nokia, adequately recognized:

The battle of devices has now become a war of ecosystems…. Our competitors aren’t taking our market share with devices; they are taking our market share with an entire ecosystem

As we continue building the MAPTO Protocol, we will be mindful that it takes a strong team, sound business model and great products to build a great company; and it takes an ecosystem to build an empire.
