White paper: Value Proposition for Real Estate Tokenization.

This white paper is a compact overview of Real Estate use cases for security tokens and five ways on how the DigiShares platform in particular can save you money:

1. Liquidity Infrastructure: "Real life use-cases from low-touch crowdfunding platforms have already validated how fractionalization enhances liquidity within a closed system. Real estate will be the single largest use case for liquidity pools and help close the illiquidity premium gap through better valuation for the best projects."

2. Corporate Finance: "One of the unique features as a protocol agnostic security token platform is the flexibility to represent various parts of the capital stack like preferred equity and mezzanine loans that can appeal to accredited investors and family offices looking for "equity-like returns" within real estate financings."

3. Payments: "Working with leading payment infrastructure companies, our platform allows for interoperability between major currencies and stablecoins for our users, arbitrating away bank transactional fees."

4. Automated Compliance: "Traditional roles of a transfer agent -recording transactions, canceling and issuing of certificates, processing investor mails and dealing with lost or stolen certificates can all be automated within the platform."

5. Intangible Benefits.
