Defactor Labs, a decentralized finance (DeFi) lending platform, has announced that it has tokenized Alpha Bonds worth $100 million on the Polygon (MATIC) network. The tokenization will allow small- and medium-sized enterprises to use real-world assets, such as receivables, as collateral. Defactor Labs partnered with law firm CMS to provide legal guidelines and documentation, while Black Manta Capital Partners provided a broker-dealer license and marketplace powered by Tokeny’s ERC-3643 tokenization engine for Alpha Bonds.
The ERC-3643 token standard was invented in 2021 by Joachim Lebrun, Tony Malghem, Kevin Thizy, Luc Falempin, and Adam Boudjemaa. It sets a standard for identity registry, storage, and compliance of tokens on regulated exchanges. According to Tokeny, over $28 billion of instruments have been tokenized via the ERC-3643 standard in over 180 jurisdictions.
Alpha Bonds Pilot Testing
Defactor Labs developers claim that over $30 million worth of Alpha Bonds has been transacted during its pilot testing, with $2 million going into project financing. Alejandro Gutierrez, CEO and co-founder of Defactor Labs, said that the tokenization of $100 million worth of bonds allows institutional investors to compliantly access DeFi and provides them with liquidity options in an open network.

Defactor Labs’ native token, FACTR, surged 550% after Chinese telecommunications conglomerate Huawei showcased the project on its social channels. The project aims to bridge traditional finance with DeFi, explore the tokenization of real-world assets, and build partnerships with startups and large corporations. Defactor is currently part of the Huawei International Scale-Up Program in Ireland.
