This is a young company, offering the ability to invest in a professionally managed real estate portfolio. More specifically, their proprietary platform finds opportunities for investment in residential homes.
The team at Property Coin is fully aware of two things:
- Security Tokens are the future
- Real estate portfolio growth requires large amounts of capital.
With this in mind, the team has decided to tokenize the company. This means that everyday investors will be able to buy tokens (PCX), which represent a 1:1 share in the company. As the company grows and accrues more assets, so does the value of a token owner’s investments.
In a recent interview with ‘Crypto for the Good (and Plenty)’, Property Coin CEO, Andrew Jewett, was asked a simple question:
In 5 years, Crypto will be…?
He responded, “Ubiquitous. I think you’ll see a mass adoption of not only the use of crypto for payment but crypto/ blockchain implementation in traditional capital markets. Securities markets are such a logical fit for the implementation of cryptography and blockchain based investments that eventually, all securities will be security tokens.”
How do they do it?
The whole process is a simple one.
- Investors purchase Property Coin.
- Property Coin invests this funding into high-return real estate flips.
- 100% of the profit upon flipping a property is re-invested into further properties
- Investor’s Property Coins grow in value alongside the company’s assets
- Token holders are entitled to 50% of earning profits.
The choice of property to invest in is completed through use of a proprietary platform developed for Property Coin. This platform allows for a thorough property assessment (current value, potential value, rehabilitation needed, etc.) At their current pace, over 1500 properties are assessed daily.
It is this same platform that allows for loans to be issued to investors of the platform. This is offered as a secondary service to the accruing of assets.
One of the benefits of working with security tokens is the necessary transparency. Security tokens are regulated more heavily than other token types. It is these regulations that enforce the divulgence of company information to investors, as they, themselves, ARE the company.
In providing transparency, Property Coin will make the property value of every asset known to investors. Token holders will be able to track the growth of their holdings, and how much money they have made in the process.

Blue Hill Mining – Bringing Transparency Through Blockchain
What is Blue Hill Mining?
Blue Hill Mining is a Swiss company, looking to disrupt the mining industry through the use of blockchain and tokenized securities.
The company derives its name from the unique geological features of the region which will be mined. With the area showing rich copper reserves close to the surface, the resulting colouring of the area is tinged blue – a natural result of high copper content.
What is the Problem?
Mining is an expensive endeavour. While the company has spent the last 8 years developing their plan of attack, only 10% of the land has been surveyed. This 10%, however, has demonstrated enough potential to put boots on the ground, and begin operations.
With increased scrutiny being put on the mining industry, regarding how raw materials are sourced, new technologies are needed to ensure full transparency of operations.
Blue Hill Mining needs to find a way to, not only raise capital, but to bring efficiency and transparency into their project.
How Will Blue Hill Mining Solve It?
To facilitate the continued exploration and mining of Blue Hill, the company will be hosting a security token offering.
This offering will see the creation, sale, and issuance of security tokens known as BHM. These tokens cumulatively represent 30% ownership of, both, the Blue Hill Platform and Blue Hill Mining.
It is expected that beyond trading these tokens through exchanges, investors will benefit through an eventual buy-back program. This is expected to take place after 2022, when the underlying value of each token is greater than $30 USD. It is intended that buy back will take place through a stock market listing.
Beyond raising capital through an STO, Blue Hill Mining is actively developing a blockchain based platform. This platform is intended to serve as a means for efficient, transparent activity and communication between the various parties involved throughout the mining process. By providing this, the transparency afforded will assure that all materials involved are fairly, and ethically, sourced.
The project is being spearheaded by a trio of accomplished professionals. The following group boasts a cumulative 90 years of relevant experience to the project.
CEO – Dr. Kurt Becker
With over 2 decades experience in both financial and capital markets, Dr. Kurt Becker is a perfect candidate to ensure the success of Blue Hill Mining
CFO – Eng. Franz-Josef Leps
Boasting over 4 decades of experience in the mining industry, Franz-Josef Leps is a key addition to this next-gen mining project.
COO – Eng. Olav Haseler
With over 3 decades of experience building machinery for the mining industry, Olav Haseler is uniquely qualified to act as COO.
Looking forward, beyond the scheduled STO, the company has a busy roadmap. The team has indicated that, not only do they expect their tokens to be traded on various exchanges, but that their ground operations will see expansion. This will occur through the addition of another drilling program.

DigiShares and AmaZix Clientele to Benefit from Alliance
Sealing the Deal
In an effort to offer potential clients a more comprehensive suite of services, two companies have joined forces. These are AmaZix and DigiShares.
By creating an alliance, clients making use of the DigiShares issuance platform, tailored towards digital securities, can now gain access to advisory services provided by AmaZix.
DigiShares has noted that their focus is towards clientele situated in Asia, Russia, and Europe, while AmaZix is a global company. Each are working towards the development of the promising digital securities sector.
Upon making their announcement, representatives from each, AmaZix and DigiShares, took the time to comment. The following is what each had to say on the matter.
Claus Skaaning, CEO of DigiShares, stated,
“The next generation of digital infrastructure may not be the dominant one today, but within the next decade, we believe that the global infrastructure for banking, tech and capital markets will have rebuilt themselves on the blockchain. Banks and stock exchanges the world over are actively seeking ways to reduce the delays, costs, and obscurity in transferring ownership of securities. Our strategy towards the future of the tokenized securities industry is, therefore, quite simple: faster, more transparent and less error-prone.”
Jonas Karlberg, CEO of AmaZix, stated,
“The potential benefits of digital securities are obvious. Decentralizing trust and easing up on the reliance on middlemen, that’s another very appealing aspect. And now, with the industry’s attention firmly on the tokenization of securities as a viable, compliant solution for crowdfunding and issuance in this space, industry expertise must deliberately collaborate, share knowledge and clarify common principles.”
AmaZix is a Chinese company, operating out of Hong Kong since their launch in 2017. Above all, AmaZix has made it a speciality of theirs in offering advisory services surrounding the world of blockchain. This has allowed for them to establish various partnerships in recent months, as increased attention is put on digital securities.
Company operations are overseen by CEO, Jonas Karlberg.
DigiShares is a European company, which was founded in 2018. Above all, they are working to provide clients with a comprehensive platform for use throughout security token offerings. This includes, not only investor accreditation services, but payment gateways as well.
Company operations are overseen by CEO, Claus Skaaning.

VMC – Connecting the Dots of Urban Mobility
Who is VMC?
VMC is a Dutch company, looking to disrupt the mobility sector through the use of blockchain technologies.
VMC envisions a future where payment processes and usage of varying types of transportation becomes a seamless process.
The company was founded in 2017, and has since successfully developed and implemented their working platform. VMC was able to make waves in 2018 through partnerships which saw the launch of the world’s first blockchain powered bus, and blockchain enabled electric scooters.
VMC intends to utilize a two-token ecosystem, in which they distribute a utility token alongside a security token.
What is the problem?
The mobility sector is inefficient and costly. Many of the commonly used transportation services are operationally segregated. Each will use different payment providers, which more often than not are unable to provide data-sets for usage towards service improvements.
A platform/service is needed that can unify the payment process between a variety of services. A commuter needs to be able to rent a bicycle to ride to a bus station, to drive to a subway, to take them across town – all through the use of a singular, cheap, and efficient platform. Furthermore, this platform needs to provide data-sets to the companies supporting it.
How will VMC Solve it?
In their continued bid to disrupt the sector, VMC has recently announced their intent to host a security token offering. The goal of this event is to raise up to a hard cap of €5 million. This funding is earmarked primarily for use towards the continued research and development required for growth of the company.
These security tokens are digital securities. This means that token holders are entitled to revenue shares garnered from platform usage. It is important to note that these tokens differ from their utility token.
The company’s utility tokens, VAI, function as a stable coin. These are used within the platform to facilitate the payment of services, negating the need for a payment processor. As this token is exclusively used to access services through the platform, VMC is able to gather detailed analytics. This data is valuable to service providers, as they are able to gain a better understanding of their customers, and structure accordingly around them.
The platform itself has been designed to appeal to anyone. It allows for travellers to not only plan their travel, but book and pay for it as well. Throughout this process, privacy is maintained, along with convenience through mobile ticketing.
We reached out to the team at VMC to get a better understanding of the event. Jochem Verheul, CEO of VMC had the following to say.
Q: Why has VMC chosen to host an STO rather than traditional means of fundraising?
A: “With a stable token for the transactions/travel and a security token for the investment, we can capture the network effect in the security token, without harming the stability of the travel token. Distributing a share of revenue fits the principles of the blockchain industry.”
When asked about potential expansion, Jochem Verheul indicated that, “We have already opened an office in Singapore!”
The team at VMC is comprised of various accomplished individuals. Below are those that are leading the charge.
Jochem Verheul – CEO & Founder
Ruurd Somberg – CFO & Cofounder
Dick Roeffen – COO
Beyond the security token offering, VMC has a busy schedule ahead of them. In a few short weeks Jochem Verheul is scheduled to be a speaker at SGINNOVATE – a conference focusing on ‘blockchain technology implementations in mobility. Verhaul promises an announcement at that time, adding, “We are doing some cool stuff here.”
