RD Technologies Is Integrating Industry-Standard Chainlink Services to Facilitate Secure and Reliable Cross-Chain Transfers of the HKD Stablecoin

7 May 2024


(Hong Kong – 7 May 2024) RD Technologies is exploring the launch of a Hong Kong dollar stablecoin, HKDR Stablecoin, with the mission of facilitating the development of Hong Kong and Asia’s evolving Web 3.0 and virtual assets landscape.  RD Technologies is excited to announce that its HKDR is planning to integrate with Chainlink, the decentralised computing platform, to help advance its stablecoin business. 


Through its collaboration with Chainlink Labs, RD Technologies plans to integrate its HKDR with Chainlink’s Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol (CCIP). The integration will help enable secure and reliable cross-chain transfers of HKDR and easier access to HKDR. RD Technologies will also explore adopting Chainlink’s Proof of Reserve (PoR) to help provide reliable onchain verification of HKDR’s reserve backing. 

Backed 1:1 by the Hong Kong dollar, HKDR is a trusted and transparent stablecoin for payments and beyond. Currently, RD Technologies has reached agreements with several globally renowned cross-border payments, virtual assets, and wealth management players to explore the use of HKDR in B2B cross-border payments, virtual assets exchanges, and tokenised real-world asset settlement. The collaboration between RD Technologies and Chainlink will help enable more businesses and merchants to settle in HKDR; and enjoy faster and more cost-efficient cross-border payments. It will also enable reliable and secure transfer of real-world assets tokenized in HKDR.

Rita Liu, Chief Executive Officer, RD Technologies, commented, “We are pleased to be working with Chainlink Labs, as its proven track record of maintaining the highest standard of security and reliability is in line with RD Technologies’ mission of developing a trusted and transparent stablecoin for multiple business use cases across the globe. We are confident that our integration will help facilitate the adoption of HKDR in cross-border payments, real-world assets tokenisation, and other onchain finance applications; it will also empower us to facilitate the development of Hong Kong as a global Web 3.0 and virtual assets hub.” 

“We are excited to support RD Technologies’ Hong Kong dollar stablecoin with secure, reliable cross-chain transfers powered by Chainlink CCIP,” said Colin Cunningham, Head of RWA & Alliances at Chainlink Labs. “Settling transactions across chains with HKDR will accelerate the adoption of tokenised assets and enable faster, more cost-efficient cross-border payments.”


Chainlink CCIP is a secure interoperability protocol for building cross-chain applications, connecting private and public blockchains, and enabling token transfers across blockchains. Backed by the Risk Management Network – a separate and independent network that continually monitors and verifies cross-chain operations for suspicious activity, CCIP provides additional layers of protection and reliability. 

Chainlink’s PoR provides users with onchain verifications regarding the collateralization of onchain assets by comparing the asset’s current supply to the reserves backing.
