Redefining how we invest in, manage and trade Real Estate.

Block Estates is developing a next generation blockchain powered real estate investment and management platform with the aim of providing innovative and regulated real estate investment opportunities plus a diverse range of streamlined and efficient real estate management and maintenance services.

The Block Estates platform is based on asset tokenization. This involves the process of creating digital tokens that represent an ownership or some other right to an asset plus any associated income or profit. Digital tokens can be issued for single or multiple asset(s) and also incorporate any desired number of enforceable rules and conditions.

The Block Estates platform and digital token issuing will be undertaken in compliance with existing securities regulations.

.

aboutimg

A blockchain powered platform that will allow you to invest in, manage, maintain and trade, real estate assets globally from one account.

By utilising blockchain technology and asset tokenization, Block Estates can quickly and efficiently create and launch investment opportunities and asset management services on globally.

Additionally, investors will gain access to secondary markets therefore providing liquidity and the potential of value appreciation through trading.

For asset owners and managers, the Block Estates platform offers an innovative and unified way of managing and maintaining assets in a safe, secure and transparent way with the use of blockchain technology, smart contracts and digital tokens.

HOW IT WORKS

    Phase 1 - Investment

    (1) Real estate assets are converted into specifically create digital cryptographic tokens. The digital tokens will then be available to purchase as an investment through the Block Estates platform. Tokens will be issued in compliance with existing securities regulations.

    (2) Once investors have been whitelisted via self executing smart contracts they can then purchase tokens using digital or fiat currencies through their account dashboard. Tokens represent ownership of the underlying asset, therefore investments will be asset backed.

    (3) Income derived from the underlying assets will be distributed to token holders. Investors also have the option of buying more tokens or selling their existing tokens through the secondary market.

    Phase 2 - Management

    (1) Asset Managers create a task through the Block Estates user dashboard. A smart contract is then created which incorporates the various characteristics and then tokenizes the task.

    (2) The smart contract executes the set rules and conditions that are associated to the task. The value of the work is also held in escrow until the task is completed..

    (3) Once the task has been completed the user is notified and approves the works. The smart contract requires consensus amongst all parties for the smart contract to complete the transaction.
