Background

Xpansiv is the global marketplace for transacting an infinite array of data-driven commodity products in an intuitive, user-friendly environment. Xpansiv prices energy, carbon, and water based on deeper data. They’re the global marketplace for data-driven, ESG-inclusive products, and the platform for redefining value based on immutable information — we prove provenance so commodities can be valued according to their full life-cycle story.

Xpansiv applied their core-competency in ESG and commodity-market infrastructure to prove what’s possible, drive liquidity, and build relationships with established market participants. When it came time to scale, process standardization and interoperability were required, and Digital Asset is the ideal partner to help us build that ESG ecosystem.

"We have applied our core-competency in ESG and commodity-market infrastructure to prove what’s possible, drive liquidity, and build relationships with established market participants. Now it’s time to scale, which requires process standardization and interoperability, and Digital Asset is the ideal partner to help us build that ESG ecosystem. This partnership delivers a one-plus-one-equals-four scenario."
