 I-ON Digital Corp. (OTC: IONI) was recently chosen by UK-based development partner Instruxi Limited as the focal point for its submission in this year's prestigious Chainlink Spring 2023 Hackathon, choosing I-ON's "fractional ownership of unrefined gold claims" framework to showcase a real-world commercial example of leveraging state-of-the-art blockchain and distributed data warehousing technologies to disrupt and evolve the conventional gold and precious metals marketplace.

 I-ON’s business model will allow claim holders to monetize in situ gold (in-ground or unrefined gold) by converting their fully validated gold claims into secure and efficient gold-backed securities, offering liquidity without extracting, mining, or smelting the gold. The team at I-ON pioneered this model several years back by achieving groundbreaking advances in the institutional acceptance of asset-backed digital securities by establishing a global custody interface and creating standards for independent financial and transactional reporting backed by expert legal opinion. Their efforts helped launch the then-nascent asset digitization marketplace while addressing the relative needs of investors, institutional partners, and regulators alike.

To build on these accomplishments, I-ON turned to Instruxi to craft a technical approach to digitizing gold reserves by tokenizing them, utilizing state-of-the-art blockchain and Smart Contract technology, then converting them into digital securities that enable institutional investors to buy fractionalized ownership of gold claims, at the "proven reserves" level, through ERC20 tokens.

"Five years ago, we set out to change the gold and precious metals marketplace by creating a regulatory-compliant digital asset ecosystem that would allow gold claim holders to monetize unrefined but proven Gold Reserves," shared I-ON CEO Carlos X. Montoya. "To build on a series of 'firsts' that we initially achieved, including meeting the requirements of larger institutions and other US and global tier-one intermediaries, we asked the team at Instruxi and their collaborative partners to help us scale and optimize our ecosystem to provide secure movement, transfer, settlement and, where applicable, hypothecation of our asset-backed digital securities. Together, what we've created is significant."

This resulting gold tokenization process represents a groundbreaking innovation in the traditional gold and precious metals marketplace, enabling claim holders to unlock the value of their proven reserves while minimizing the environmental impact and cost of conventional forms of gold mining, including strip mining and other forms of extraction. I-ON's partnership with Instruxi showcases the power and potential of integrating best-in-class emerging DeFi technologies to drive meaningful commercial change in the precious metals and commodities industry.

"To enable I-ON's vision, we needed to create a secure, robust, and hyper-scalable infrastructure that could support asset digitization and tokenization so we could fractionalize the ownership of gold and other assets." explains Instruxi CTO Austin Przybysz, "Smart contracts, Chainlink's secure communication, and Space and Time's decentralized data warehouses allowed us to deliver the advanced auditing capabilities, scalability, and robust security that I-ON required for their institutional-grade framework."

Through its development partnership with Instruxi, I-ON is pioneering the future of asset-backed securities and the trading and hypothecation of fractionalized gold ownership and other emerging digitized asset classes. Their collaborative effort lays the foundation for a more accessible, trust-driven, and compliant financial ecosystem that could play an integral role in shaping the future of decentralized finance, tokenized assets, and digital securities. All while providing a more sustainable and environmentally friendly way to monetize precious metal reserves without damaging or destroying Mother Earth.
