True I/O Sets Sights On $12 Trillion RWA Tokenization Market With Appointment Of Vincent Maher As CEO

March 28, 2024

CARLSBAD, CA / ACCESSWIRE / March 28, 2024 / True I/O, a blockchain platform company under the Dealbox Ventures portfolio, has announced the appointment of Vincent Maher as its new CEO, in a bid to further solidify its position in the Real World Asset (RWA) tokenization market. This move comes amidst growing demand for RWA tokenization and the increasing need for transparency and efficiency in the financial sector. With Maher’s extensive experience in the African mobile industry, True I/O has the potential to become a notable player in the blockchain sector.

Dealbox Ventures, which focuses on tokenized venture capital investments, facilitated True I/O’s Series A funding round. True I/O raised $9 million in 2022, and the successful funding round reflects confidence in True I/O’s strategic direction and technological capabilities. Thomas Carter, founder of Dealbox Ventures, praised True I/O, saying, “We are thrilled to have True I/O in our portfolio. We know that Vincent’s leadership will contribute significantly to True I/O’s direction. The company represents a pivotal part of our strategy to advance blockchain technology applications.”

The sector of RWA tokenization has gained increased attention, partly due to BlackRock’s recent announcement of a $100 million fund to explore tokenized assets on the Ethereum network. This move by a major asset management firm is indicative of the growing interest in blockchain as a tool for financial innovation and asset management.

“Integrating blockchain with real-world assets and tokenizing devices for security in mobile payments and supply chain security can exponentially improve how assets are managed and accessed,” said Vincent Maher, True I/O’s new leader in this effort. “Our unique approach to this field means that we are well-positioned to capitalize on this opportunity and drive growth in the market.”

True I/O’s unique take on RWA tokenization involves tokenizing physical assets like IoT devices for security. They seek to make the process of tokenization secure and efficient, providing a reliable and trustworthy solution for users. This approach is particularly relevant as the number of IoT devices continues to grow, and security concerns around these devices become more prevalent.

One of their initiatives involves collaborating with the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) to enhance telecommunications security through blockchain technology. Specifically, they are working on developing electronic Mobile Equipment Identifiers (MEIDs) through this collaboration.

Maher’s appointment is a deliberate move to expand their reach in Africa’s rapidly growing digital market, especially in the dominant mobile payments market. Maher has considerable experience at mobile operators like Vodacom, broadcasters like MultiChoice Group, social network Mxit, and social platform startup Motribe, which adds a wealth of expertise to True I/O’s team.

The company has recently partnered with Digital Solutions Group, which will serve as a reseller and development partner, to extend its reach within Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. With this partnership and Maher’s experience, True I/O plans to develop globally relevant blockchain solutions and make a significant impact on the African digital market.
