Introduction to Real Estate on the Blockchain

Decentralized Finance (DeFi)

Blockchain technology is changing the financial landscape. Sectors such as banking, finance, and lending have already been majorly transformed by the DeFi revolution led by platforms such as Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain. The next major disruption will occur with real world assets and commodities. The concept of asset tokenization allows for the exchange of real-world asset securities directly on the blockchain, with real estate leading the charge.

Asset Tokenization

Real estate investment on the blockchain is made possible through a process called asset tokenization — the process by which the ownership of a real-world asset is represented by tokens on the blockchain. By holding Asset Tokens, you own a share of the legal entity, and by extension, the property itself.
The Landshare platform currently offers two types of Tokenized Real Estate offerings:
  1. 1.
    • Each tokenized property is rented out to tenants, generating a monthly rental yield. This allows for a global, fractional model of real estate ownership conducted entirely on-chain. Asset Tokens can then be bought and sold, turning real estate into a fully liquid asset
    • Rental Property Asset Token holders gain the following benefits:

      • Monthly Rental Yields
      • Property Appreciation
      • Real estate exposure on-chain
      • Access to additional features such as Real Estate NFTs
  2. 2.
    • Rather than holding Asset Tokens and collecting rent each month, our House Flipping tokens will be redeemable for your share of the profits upon completion of the flip. This means your returns will be fully realized in a matter of months, all at once.
    • House Flip Asset Token holders gain the following benefits:

      • Short-term real estate investment options
      • Lump-sum payout
      • Real estate exposure on-chain
With Landshare, you can invest in real estate on BSC for as little as $50.
