    BlackRock’s BUIDL Fund Backs Manta Network’s wUSDM via Mountain Protocol







    Manta Network has announced that its on-chain yield-bearing stablecoin, wUSDM, deployed by Mountain Protocol on Manta Pacific, is now backed by BlackRock’s BUIDL Fund, according to Manta Network. This collaboration is facilitated through Securitize, BlackRock’s transfer agent and tokenization platform, marking a significant milestone in the security and growth of wUSDM holders.

    USDM, a stablecoin historically backed by U.S. Treasury bills, will now also have the backing of BlackRock’s BUIDL Fund. This development enhances the security and yield potential of Mountain Protocol’s wrapped USDM (wUSDM), ensuring that holders benefit from the custodianship of BlackRock, the world’s leading asset management firm.

    The BUIDL Fund, representing BlackRock’s commitment to integrating blockchain technology with traditional financial assets, offers a stable value of $1 per token and pays daily accrued dividends directly to investors’ wallets. It invests 100% of its assets in cash, U.S. Treasury bills, and repurchase agreements, providing secure and transparent yield generation on the blockchain. Manta Network is an early adopter of the BUIDL Fund, supporting its backed assets through the on-chain yield-bearing stablecoin.

    wUSDM on Manta Pacific was introduced during the New Paradigm campaign, where users staked USDC and received wUSDM. Over $132 million worth of wUSDM was minted on Manta Pacific throughout the campaign.

    This collaboration underscores Manta Network’s long-term investment in enhancing the use cases, security, and utility of Real-World Assets (RWAs) available on Manta Pacific. The enhanced security and yield of wUSDM, backed by BlackRock’s BUIDL Fund, present an attractive prospect for users within the Manta Network ecosystem.

    Currently, the Manta community can participate in Manta CeDeFi, the latest innovative product from Manta Network that offers institutional-grade yield and security on RWAs. Users who stake wUSDM will not only earn yield but also receive mUSD, a Liquid Custody Token (LCT) on Manta Pacific, providing additional rewards and improved capital efficiency.
