Bitcoin Suisse Issues Tokenized Bond on Obligate to Enhance Lending Services

Obligate, the on-chain capital markets platform, today announced the completion of the first tokenized bond issuance for Bitcoin Suisse, the Swiss crypto-financial services provider.

This issuance aims to accelerate Bitcoin Suisse’s growth efforts in its lending business. Bitcoin Suisse recently “surpassed CHF 5 billion in Assets under Custody, solidifying its position as Switzerland’s largest crypto custodian and trusted gateway to invest in digital assets.”

Bitcoin Suisse was one of the first institutions in Switzerland “to offer crypto asset collateralized loans to its clients to increase their capital efficiency.”

The transaction further validates Obligate’s strategy of “offering institutional borrowers access to new capital sources, highlighting the rapid adoption of tokenized real-world assets within the wider FinTech ecosystem.”

The bond is overcollateralized, providing “an additional layer of security for investors.”

The issuance features advanced collateral management “with conservative Loan-to-Value (LTV) ratios. Utilizing USDC as the settlement currency, this issuance was done via atomic settlement of the issued bonds against Circle’s stablecoin, enhancing transaction efficiency.”

Stephan D. Meyer, Co-Founder and CLO at Obligate, commented:

“By facilitating this tokenized bond issuance, we empower institutional-grade brokers and custodians like Bitcoin Suisse, who custody billions in assets, to leverage our advanced blockchain technology, robust legal framework, and collateralization capabilities.” Simultaneously, qualified investors with Obligate seized the opportunity to directly invest in this private debt issuance. This underscores the trust in Obligate and highlights the solid balance sheet of Bitcoin Suisse.”

As noted in the update:

”It is a significant step toward integrating traditional financial mechanisms with innovative digital solutions, setting a new standard for asset-backed lending in the digital economy.”

The funds raised from this tokenized bond issuance “will be used for the growth of Bitcoin Suisse’s domestic lending business.”

Sandro Huwyler, Head Treasury of Bitcoin Suisse, said:

“Bitcoin Suisse remains committed to bridge the gap between traditional finance and decentralized technology. The milestone of issuing this tokenized bond reinforces our pioneering role in the industry and reflects the trust investors place in Bitcoin Suisse, its financials and its business model. The additional capital generated through the issuance of the new bond will bolster the expansion and growth effort of our lending business and help us meet the growing demand of our clients.”
