September 22: The ESG of Tokenization

The topic for September’s webinar is “The ESG of Tokenization”

We here at DigiShares believe Tokenization is a new technology that will become extremely important and very influential for the Real Estate market in the future. That’s why it is important to discuss:
– How tokenization can make the world a better place?
– How can we as developers and users of tokenization technology make the industry more impactful and sustainable?
– What are the differences between environmental friendly blockchains and blockchains with heavy energy consumption?
– With tokenization can become a global tool in the creation of equal opportunity through the fractionalization and democratization of real estate asseets. Will we be able to help close the global wealth gap?

Join us for a live webinar to find out the answers!

New: Research Report on DeFi and Real Estate

Many industries in this world have been transformed by technology. With the digital revolution in markets, industries are now more interconnected leading to increased flexibility and productivity. Although the real estate industry has been slow to adopt technology over the last decade, a significant transformation has occurred within the industry such as smart buildings, an online marketplace for buying and selling, crowdfunding, multiple listing services (MLS) through broker networks, and so on. Despite these technological advancements, liquidity and transaction efficiency remain major challenges in today’s market. The real estate transaction process is characterized by complex networks of involvement from multiple stakeholders. Based on existing issues in the real estate sector, extensive research was conducted to determine how the real estate sector can use technology to make real estate transactions as smooth as possible.

The report investigated decentralized finance technology and tokenization opportunities, specifically how they might be used in commercial real estate transactions. The tokenization allows the DeFi Lending protocol to be used to fund commercial real estate. This level took a long time to complete but with the adoption of this technology, it can now be completed in minutes. The assets are stored on the blockchain, and smart contracts connect lenders and borrowers, enforce loan terms, and distribute interest, all without the involvement of a middleman. The study helps to improve understanding of decentralized finance in the context of the commercial real estate sector as well as potential benefits, drawbacks, and major areas of adoption.

Article: Tokenisation is not new, but where does it lead to?

When asked about tokenisation,¬†Clauss Skanning, CEO of Danish firm,¬†DigiShares¬†(specialising in tokenising real world assets), said:¬†‚ÄúTokenization is in its essence about digitization, automation, fractionalization, and liquidity. Due to the digitization of assets, we can automate transactions to an unprecedented level and this in turn leads to a massive cost reduction that enables fractionalization. Finally, tokenization enables peer-to-peer trading of assets with no counterparty risk, effectively increasing the value of assets with 10-30% through removal of the illiquidity risk‚ÄĚ.¬†
