In DeFi, “real-world assets” means many things to many people. It’s a buzzword of the future, the last bastion of hope in an apocalyptic bear market, and certainly the best way to set up your VC ticket for the next cycle.

RWA has become jargon that can mean everything, nothing, and whatever it needs to mean for marketing purposes.
