Tokenization in Real Estate
The webinar will introduce the concept of tokenization and present some Nordic players in the field. The actual benefits of tokenization to real estate developers will be explained and concrete examples of tokenized real estate projects will be presented.
Tokenization refers to the process of representing real estate assets as tokens on the blockchain. Similar to bitcoin, it enables real estate assets to be freely issued, sold, transferred, and traded in a fully digitized manner. It may potentially enable real estate developers to more easily finance their projects from new types of investors and it will greatly enhance the liquidity of real estate investments through online marketplaces. Tokenization also holds the promise of “democratization” by giving retail investors access to real estate investments with much smaller ticket sizes – EUR 1,000 instead of EUR 100,000.
