RWA tokenization may necessitate account-level configurations to ensure regulatory and compliance adherence, especially for stablecoins and other payment-focused cryptocurrencies. Hedera enables taken issuers to define account-level KYC verification and freeze, token supply management, transfer, along with AML checks to adhere to regulations and more.


In real-world asset tokenization on Hedera, fees are fixed and denominated in USD, with transactions carried out using $HBAR. Verifiable data with consensus timestamps are streamed to Hedera at 10,000 TPS with immediate settlement, for a mere $0.0001 USD per transaction.


The Hedera Consensus Service (HCS) serves as a foundational tool for enhancing trust in data. Specifically designed for creating decentralized, auditable logs of immutable and timestamped sustainability data, HCS enables granular data to be securely logged and accessed by all involved parties. This heightened transparency and accessibility deter fraudulent activities, bolstering confidence in the system.

“By partnering with Hedera, we can make previously restricted asset classes accessible to a wider range of investors. This aligns perfectly with our commitment to financial inclusion and creating a more equitable investment landscape.”
