Interest in Metal Commodities, Tokenization, and Blockchain Top Topics during Greenwich Economic Forum, Bloomberg News
Atomyze expects strong market demand for tokenized nickel, palladium, platinum, copper, and other metals.
Easily invest in a range of physical commodities, such as palladium and other metals, that have been tokenized on the blockchain. Buy, sell, hold, and redeem these digitized physical assets, or “tokens,” on the platform. The tokens are title with direct ownership to that physical asset.
Atomyze will connect investors directly with the asset owner or inventory holder via a simple user interface to easily buy and sell tokens in a secure and regulated environment. On the platform you can review the tokens available for purchase, manage your holdings, and access the marketplace.
Commodity markets are constrained by antiquated technology and processes. Investing in some commodities can be expensive, impractical, and logistically difficult. Additionally, traditional commodity transactions have high credit risk and require long settlement periods. Existing financial instruments for commodities, such as ETFs and futures, can be expensive to maintain and impractical for obtaining direct ownership. Atomyze will provide investment exposure to previously inaccessible, illiquid commodities without the complications of today’s current alternatives.
Atomyze will launch with asset-backed tokens for Palladium (PD) and will add asset-backed tokens for Platinum (PT), Gold (AU), Silver (AG), Nickel (NI), Copper (CU) and Cobalt (CO), with additional physical asset tokens to follow.
Our mission is to expand the possibilities of commodities investing using blockchain. Producers, commodity owners, investors, traders, merchant bankers, and commercial users will stay connected in a way that transforms commodities trading. This unique ecosystem will create efficiencies in the marketplace. It will allow participants to invest in manageable notional amounts for their investment profiles and will provide a simple way to enter and exit their investment positions.
The Atomyze platform is underpinned by Hyperledger Fabric, a permissioned blockchain, which is one of the most reliable and secure blockchains in the industry.
Palladium is a rare metal widely used in manufacturing but with limited investment options for financial professionals. Palladium is an essential component in car manufacturing, to ensure cars meet strict emissions requirements. Palladium is also used frequently for jewelry, oil drilling and exploration, and investment consumption.
Platinum is one of the rarest metals. Its unique physical and catalytic properties have established its value in industrial applications. Its precious metal attributes have made it the premier jewelry metal. Platinum is also central to reducing vehicle emissions.
Gold benefits from diverse demands – as a safe-haven asset, as an investment, as an official sector strategic reserve, as jewelry and as an industrial component. Gold is also highly liquid, and historically preserves its value over time.
Silver is malleable, ductile, and is an excellent conductor of electricity, making it ideal for use in industrial and manufacturing. Silver has also been prized for centuries as an investment and store of wealth. Due to its lower value, silver is accessible to a greater number of people who choose to invest in physical silver. With a market capitalization of $1.5 trillion, silver is the second most popular precious metal in the world after gold.
Copper is a malleable and ductile metallic element that is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity as well as being corrosion resistant and antimicrobial. Due to its widespread use in industry, copper is often viewed as being closely connected to global macroeconomic events. Spot copper investment options are very limited.
Nickel has outstanding physical and chemical properties, which make it essential in thousands of products. Its biggest use is in alloying, particularly with chromium and other metals to produce stainless and heat-resisting steels. Investment options in spot nickel are very limited.
Cobalt is commonly mined as a by-product of copper or nickel. It is globally recognized as a critical raw material due to its unique properties including the ability to store energy, high-temperature resilience, hardness, process efficiency and environmental benefits. Investment options in spot Cobalt are very limited.
