Roadmap for 2021
Bitcoin's phenomenal rise backed by institutional adoption has confirmed the appetite for digital assets by mainstream markets and investors. Today, Bitcoin is positioned as a scarce digital asset with very high liquidity, and this liquidity, mining, and adoption are managed in a fairly decentralized manner by its community members.
XDC is positioned to connect real-world finance origination to DeFi markets. XinFin's focus, therefore, is for XDC to be a de-facto standard for recording payment obligations for institutions, including buyers, suppliers, governments, and banks. There is also an avenue to record payment obligations for employer to employee transactions, which can potentially create opportunities for payday loans, mortgage origination, and auto loans on the XDC Network.
Governments raise billions through bonds, which are essentially payment obligations. Currently, this space is empty and there is no platform that focuses on this particular feature. Through bond tokenization, we see a massive opportunity to run DeFi backed by real-world assets on top of the XDC network.
Traditionally, central banks pour liquidity into financial markets so that liquidity can reach MSMEs at the grassroots level. XDC is positioned to absorb such liquidity and distribute it via originators that connect to TradeFinex on the XDC Network. We are expecting a third-party developer to deliver payment obligations on the XDC network, which will be used by the initial 2 integrations, Validus and Funding Societies.
There are ongoing discussions with regulated financial institutions (Know More) to bring payment obligations for financial instruments, such as letters of credits, invoices, and receivables onto the XDC Network.
While the Core Team is focused on the adoption of XDC and the network. It has become clear that in order for us to operate as a Decentralized Autonomous Organization, the participation of the XDC community will be needed to achieve the following objectives:
We are happy to share this roadmap with our core community members so that we can collectively grow the XDC Network into a market leader in 2021 and beyond.
