Introducing U.S. bond-denominated token USDY to Sui
On the 8th, financial services company Ondo Finance announced that it will introduce USDY, backed by US Treasury bills, to its layer 1 blockchain “Sui”. It is said to be Sui’s first native dollar-denominated token.
USDY will be integrated into Sui’s main DeFi (decentralized finance) protocol, strengthening the Sui ecosystem as a stable and liquid investment option.
USDY is considered a type of stablecoin, but it is an RWA (real asset) type token backed by short-term U.S. government bonds and bank deposits, and holders can also earn yield.

Significance of expanding to Sui
Nathan Allman, CEO of Ondo Finance, spoke about the significance of introducing USDY to Sui as follows:
Sui’s impressive rise in the DeFi space is a realization of the potential of blockchain technology. This is also an opportunity for us to contribute to Sui’s on-chain financial ecosystem.
The collaboration with Sui will expand Ondo’s reach, introduce Ondo’s reliable and income-generating asset USDY to a wider audience, and foster innovation and stability across the ecosystem.
Greg Siourounis, Managing Director of the Sui Foundation, added: “Sui’s recent DeFi trading volume growth is already industry-leading, and Ondo’s addition further strengthens that trajectory.”
Ondo Finance also launched USDY on the Ethereum (ETH) L2 “Mantle Network” in November last year.

Sui is on the rise
Sui is a layer 1 blockchain equipped with smart contract functionality that is characterized by high processing power.
Assets under custody (TVL) on the network have increased by approximately 1000% in the past four months. According to DeFillama, at the time of writing the article, TVL was ranked 9th in the blockchain rankings, reaching approximately 74 billion yen (approximately $500 million).
It has been pointed out that the reason for this growth is the provision of incentives to early users and expectations for airdrops. Various applications such as liquid staking, decentralized exchanges (DEX), and lending protocols are also expanding.
