Who is Realecoin?
Realecoin is a real estate fund built upon the Ethereum blockchain. They are young company looking to capitalize on what blockchain technology can offer them. Under the guidance of an experienced team, they look to establish themselves as a force in the industry – beginning in New York.
What is the problem?
At any given time, there is a plethora of housing complexes that are in dire need of redevelopment. Furthermore, there are countless property owners that are unable to cover mortgage costs. In either situation, an influx of capital is needed to remedy the situation.
Unfortunately, capital is not always easy to come by. Projects such as housing complexes that need development are typically long term. They do not provide investors with liquidity on their contribution, and are typically limited to investors residing within the country’s borders.
How will they solve it?
Realecoin recognizes that blockchain holds the answer to each of the issues noted above. With the help of Securitize, Realecoin is launching their very own security token – RC.
RC takes form as an ERC-20 token, and represents a 1:1 share in a redevelopment fund. The process is simple
- Realecoin sells security tokens for their fund
- Realecoin invests the money raised from this sale into high-potential income producing properties for redevelopment. Investment into distressed debt is also considered.
- Token holders receive dividends from income producing properties, while RC value increases alongside the equity built from the fund
- Token holders also receive their share of property sales within the portfolio.
- Investors can trade/sell their tokens/shares via secondary markets at any time.
By utilizing this form of fractionalized ownership, Realecoin is able to attain large amounts of capital while remaining efficient. Furthermore, through listings on platforms, such as Securitize, the token is able to be traded effortlessly. This means that investors can experience high-levels of liquidity. Something not feasible in the past.
