Is BlackRock investing in RWA tokens? Here’s what we know

Is BlackRock investing in RWA tokens? Here’s what we know

The world’s largest institutional investor by assets under management (AUM), BlackRock Inc. (NYSE: BLK), has recently moved to create a tokenization fund allegedly focused on real-world assets (RWA). 

This new endeavor is part of BlackRock’s dive into the cryptocurrency industry, already covering different branches. Notably, the company manages over $9.10 trillion worth of assets, a part of which is being directed to cryptocurrencies.

Now, cryptocurrency investors have started to speculate if the finance titan is already investing in their favorite tokens. However, much of this speculation comes from a landscape full of biases and inconclusive evidence, requiring a lot of caution.

As of writing, all we know is that (1) Larry Fink, BlackRock’s CEO, sees a bright future for the tokenization of all assets; (2) the company has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to launch a tokenization fund with Securitize; and (3) the latter has announced it will be called “BlackRock USD Institutional Digital Liquidity Fund (BUIDL),” in partnership with Anchorage Digital, BitGo, Coinbase, and FireBlocksHQ.

Beware of rumors on BlackRock tokens’ investments

Yet, the rumors are already in the open, as projects, influencers, analysts, and researchers try to capitalize on BlackRock’s endeavor.

For example, the pseudonym account on X (formerly Twitter), Reflections, posted a list of “RWA tokens [BlackRock] is currently buying.”

Also, a Real Estate RWA project, Bixos, recently celebrated seeing their low-cap token, UBXS, featured on an account the investment titan supposedly owns.

Is BlackRock investing in the tokens its crypto wallet holds?

Understanding how cryptocurrency wallets work is crucial to avoid following rumors with potentially negative financial implications. Essentially, anyone can send any token to any desired wallet address without the other party’s consent.

Historically, legitimate and questionable projects, meme coins, and even financial scams have used this feature as a tactic to attract retail attention to specific cryptocurrencies.

The most famous of them was a reportedly unsolicited receipt of Shiba Inu (SHIB) tokens by Ethereum’s (ETH) creator, Vitalik Buterin. Buterin later donated the tokens to charity, as reported by Forbes in 2021. This was SHIB’s debut in the spotlight, demonstrating how effective these unsolicited gifts can be in this market.

In conclusion, there is no evidence that BlackRock is already purchasing and investing in RWA tokens. Nevertheless, the company’s interest in the ecosystem is real and the market will soon hear more from the institutional investor.
