Comparison to Other Ondo Products

How does UDSY compare to OUSG?

While OUSG and USDY are all institutional-grade tokenized cash-equivalents, they have slightly different intended audiences and use cases.

  • OUSG provides Tokenized exposure to short-term Treasuries. USDY is secured by Tokenized Treasuries and bank deposits.
  • OUSG represents membership / equity interests in a fund holding Treasuries and money market funds, respectively. USDY is an interest-bearing note.
  • OUSG and USDY are are total-return instruments: any interest paid out on the underlying assets is reinvested, causing the value of these tokens to generally increase in value over time.
  • OUSG is available to only Qualified Purchasers, but anywhere in the world; USDY is available only to those in eligible geographies but no investor accreditation is required.
  • OUSG is tradable at any time in the secondary market, but only to those who have completed our onboarding process. USDY has a restricted period during which it cannot trade, but after that can be traded freely among anyone within eligible geographies.
