Bringing All the World’s Assets Onchain

The ultimate goal of crypto is to create a more open, transparent, and efficient global economy. The tokenization of digital assets, defined as blockchain-based tokens that represent digital, physical, or traditional assets, present a way to improve the global economy for every human on Earth. In order to achieve this goal, infrastructure must be built to bring all the world's assets onchain. It is for these reasons that Holograph was built, which provides infrastructure for digital asset tokenization. Holograph achieves this with holographic assets, which are fungible and non-fungible tokens that exist natively on any public or private blockchain.

Common Crypto Asset Standards Fall Short

Common fungible and non-fungible digital asset standards fail to meet the needs of assets issuers. This is because they lack credible neutrality, native composability, and are exposed to cross-chain risk, resulting in billions of stolen value. Furthermore, digital asset issuance, tracking, and support is resource intensive, requiring developers to create, deploy, and maintain elaborate technical infrastructure.

Key Takeaway: Common crypto asset standards lack issuer controls, are risky, and are difficult to manage and maintain.

Holograph is the Solution

Issuers need customizable infrastructure that allows for the management of crypto asset deployment, distribution, and security. Holograph achieves this by introducing a new crypto primitive – Holographic Assets. Holographic assets are the ideal solution for digital asset tokenization, as they ensure issuers have control and sovereignty over the assets they deploy.

Key Takeaway: Holograph empowers issuers with the freedom to choose how their assets are deployed and move between blockchains.

Holograph is Credibly Neutral

Issuers need a solution that is credibly neutral, such that it avoids discriminating or favoring any specific blockchain ecosystem. Holographic assets achieve credible neutrality by decoupling the asset layer from the blockchain layer. By modularizing the value layer, holographic assets are allowed to move freely between any application, messaging protocol, or blockchain.

Key Takeaway: Holographic assets are not locked in to any specific blockchain ecosystem, allowing issuers to choose where and how they are deployed.

Holograph is Natively Composable

Issuers need a solution that maintains data as digital assets trade between different blockchains. Holographic assets maintain the same contract address, asset ID, and underlying utility on all EVM-compatible blockchains, allowing issuers to track and verify ownership across multiple public and private ledgers. This is achieved by specially configured factory smart contracts, which use the CREATE2 opcode and unique salt to deterministically calculate the address.

Key Takeaway: Holograph allows digital assets to move between blockchains with complete data integrity.

Holograph Minimizes Bridge Risk

Issuers need a solution that minimizes bridge risk, enabling market participants to trade with counterparties on different public and private ledgers. Holograph's modular design minimizes cross-chain risk by integrating with multiple messaging passing protocols. This is achieved by the holographic transfer process, in which the asset is burned on the source blockchain and re-minted on the destination blockchain. This burn and mint process eliminates the need to lock liquidity, reducing the risk of an exploit.

Key Takeaway: Issuers can select their preferred messaging protocol based on attributes like transaction finality, cost, throughput, and security.

Holograph Represents All Types of Digital Assets

Holographic assets can be used to represent any variety of digital asset. Holograph's SDKs allow issuers the flexibility to customize asset functionality to meet the needs of their customers.

  • Digital Art: Tokenized representations of digital art.
  • Real World Assets (RWAs): Tokenized representations of financial assets.
  • Gaming Items: Tokenized representations of in-game assets.

Holograph Provides a Complete Solution for Issuers

Holograph provides a suite of asset tokenization infrastructure for issuers.

Holograph is Battle Tested

Holograph was initially deployed to mainnets in January 2023. An interface was developed to allow for the creation, deployment, minting, and bridging of holographic assets. This was done to battle test the protocol on multiple public blockchains.

Protocol metrics to date:

  • 11,000,000+ Protocol Transactions across 8 blockchains
  • 8,000,000+ Holographic Assets Minted across 8 blockchains
  • 2,000,000+ Holographic Bridge Transactions between 8 blockchains
