TRANSFORMING MARKETS FROM THE SOURCE

XCHG empowers informed decision-making and commodity differentiation.

Xpansiv CBL Holding Group (XCHG) is the world’s first commodity exchange built for a new asset class: data. XCHG ingests data, sourced from each commodity’s lifecycle, and converts it into Intelligent Commodities—digital assets that enable transactions based on comprehensive information.

We bring transparency to the market by recording real-world characteristics in an immutable profile. As a result, commodities can be valued based on vital information that was invisible…until now.

Commodity markets were designed more than a century ago for a resource-rich, data-poor world. Today’s world is rich in data, but resource-constrained, and there is increasing demand for deeper context about the full value of energy, food, water, and the other material inputs that drive the global economy. XCHG gives market participants the ability to make data-driven decisions, aligned with priorities, executed across a vertically-integrated Digital Commodity Ecosystem™.  

XCHG brings together Xpansiv, a data refinery and next-gen registry, with CBL Markets, the leading commodity spot exchange. Together, they create a first-of-its-kind marketplace powered by Digital Feedstock™. This proprietary data format combines real-time production monitoring, data science, cryptography, standards, and distributed-ledger technologies to refine, characterize, and convert data into digital assets that can be transacted—with no counterparty risk.

XCHG is the platform to meet burgeoning demand for transparency and complete information; everyone wins when markets are truly efficient in valuing financial, human, and natural capital.
