All about Defactor.

Updated this week

Defactor is a token-powered ecosystem which facilitates the tokenisation of real world assets. Bridging the gap between Trad-Fi and DeFi, the Defactor mission is to create the infrastructure and ‘rails’ for the creation of new business models all around the world.

To achieve this, we seek to empower our community and partner network through four key pillars:

Our roadmap covers these four pillars with milestones for each. You can also find each of the roadmaps at

What is the purpose and value proposition of Defactor?

Defactor is revolutionising finance by bridging the gap between Real-World Assets (RWA) and Decentralised Finance (DeFi). We democratise access to financial opportunities through asset tokenisation, offering a robust toolkit for businesses worldwide. Our team of passionate innovators believes in collaboration and open dialogue, fostering a vibrant community that contributes to our network's growth. Read here to learn more about Defactor.

What is Defactor’s competitive advantage compared to other RWA tokenisation players?

Defactor’s strength is around providing a robust tokenisation infrastructure with industry leading token standards for RWA. However, this space is indeed getting crowded, and a very important advantage of collaborating with Defactor is their aspiration and ability to enable efficient interaction with the assets, once they’re tokenised.

Defactor’s team is currently engaged in discussions with various tokenisation ecosystems to integrate elements of their technology, enhancing existing infrastructure of the partners. The team sees everyone as partners, not competitors. Additionally, certain players concentrate on specific regions or jurisdictions where Defactor’s expertise or licensing partnerships might be lacking.

What are the Defactor toolkit modules?

Defactor helps businesses and individuals access and interact with tokenised assets. Defactor has a suite of tokenisation tools that include 3 key components: Pools, Engage & Assets.

TheASSETS module is dedicated to the creation and management of tokenised assets. It includes tools for the tokenisation process, enabling businesses to create digital representations of real-world assets. These tokens can then be integrated into DeFi applications and used in various financial transactions​.

POOLS focuses on lending and borrowing activities within the DeFi space. It provides infrastructure for creating and managing DeFi lending pools, where tokenised real-world assets can be used as collateral for loans, enhancing liquidity and accessibility for asset owners​.

ENGAGE is designed to facilitate community interaction and engagement within the Defactor ecosystem. It is for platforms with their own native token to power their ecosystem with staking, governance, voting and bounty programs.

These toolkit modules collectively enable businesses to leverage blockchain technology for enhanced liquidity, security, and accessibility in financial operations.

Do Toolkit users need to have an experienced team of blockchain engineers to be able to integrate with the three modules?

You will need a team of developers, who will be assisted by Defactor. However, there is no need for your team to be experienced to carry out any of our toolkits. Our tech documentation is becoming increasingly robust for projects to go ahead and implement their product development around Defactor tools. Defactor’s tech team is constantly adding new documentation for developers to work with. Check it out here.

What about Toolkit users coming from traditional industries without even having a tech team? Can they partner with Defactor?

Absolutely. A lot of traditional industry players, such as real estate or funds, always reach out to the Defactor team. What’s important is that they have an existing community and a strong demand for asset tokenisation. Defactor empowers users of the Toolkit to build business cases on top of their solution stack.

Is there a white paper or documentation available?

Yes, there are four roadmap documents which describe the direction, strategy and vision for the Defactor ecosystem. You can find all the roadmaps here. For further documentation of how Defactor operates, refer to this webpage.

Who are the members of the (founding) team?

The founding team is made up of a mix of trad-fi, technology and blockchain experts with decades of collective expertise. Readhere to know more about the team behind Defactor.

Is Defactor set up as a DAO?

Yes, the Defactor Association is set up as a DAO with the community having a say in the strategy and direction of the ecosystem via a signal and support governance model. V1.5 of the governance framework will be rolled out on Engage .

In which country and legal jurisdiction is Defactor registered?

The Defactor Association is based in Switzerland. We have a partner network that spans around the world with business models being built on the Defactor rails.

What is the native token for Defactor?

Underpinning the entire ecosystem is the FACTR token, a utility, governance and access token which is embedded in the upcoming tools and modules. Learn more about the token economics of the FACTR token here.

What is the token distribution and allocation?

The FACTR token allocation is available to view on our Engage Community App. Here you can view the ecosystem wallets, access the different staking pools, participate in community governance and apply for bounties & grants.

Do you have a grants program?

Yes, we are in the process of rolling out our initiative designed to provide support to community members. The Defactor Grants Program offers grants to teams who create innovative solutions to approach challenges within the Defactor ecosystem. Learn more about the grants program here.

What token standards are leading the RWA industry?

The Defactor Toolkit currently works with token standards that include ERC-20, ERC-721, ERC-1155 and ERC-3643. The ERC-3643 is supported by notable institutions such as Invesco, DLA Piper, Polygon and others. You can read about why Defactor chose to support this standard here.

What token standard does Defactor use?

Defactor uses the ERC-3643 token standard. This token standard was chosen for its ability to cater specifically to enterprise-level tokenisation needs. It also offers a comprehensive framework that ensures compliance, security, and seamless functionality. Read more about the ERC-3643 token standard here.

Does Defactor have a privacy policy document?

At Defactor, we do not collect or store any of your personal information. This includes information on users of our toolkits, such as Engage FACTR token holders (with the exception of clients and partners). Any information provided through our customer support channels are not used further than for ease of communication and identification during the support assistance period.
