Enterprise Tokens are the representation of real world or digital assets on the blockchain. Capable of being modeled as fungible or non-fungible, tokens provide a vehicle for secure digital transactions without reliance on intermediaries and third party trust institutions. By leveraging tokens, enterprises can create a trustworthy framework for asset tracking, settlement and custody, and streamline the activities around asset trading transactions.

Token Exchanges with Atomic Swaps
Tokens can be securely exchanged through the usage of Hashed Time Lock Contracts (HTLCs) that serve as digital escrow services. These contracts abstract the need for a third party settlement broker and offer “atomicity” for the proposed bi-lateral exchange. The security of these escrow smart contracts allow for any token owner to propose and execute token exchanges with other parties in the consortium with the peace of mine that under no circumstances would they lose their token due to malicious intent from their exchange counterparty. This content will explore the constructs of an HTLC and walk through the Kaleido Swap Service.
