This week marks another important milestone within the international security token sector as the African-based tokenization platform, Flyt Property announced plans to host the first-ever Tokenized Real Estate STO on the continent. The news demonstrates an acceleration in the adoption of tokenization across the global real estate market. Additionally, it symbolizes a major advancement for African markets moving forward.

According to company documentation, Flyt Property Investment will issue Africa’s first property-backed security token. Importantly, the blockchain-based token represents ownership in Flyt Property’s new real estate fund. Unlike previous tokenization ventures within the region, Flyt features full regulatory and legal compliance.

Flyt Hospitality Fund

The newly tokenized Flyt Hospital Fund focuses specifically on strategically located hospitality properties. Also, the fund will focus on sectional-title serviced apartments and student accommodations. Traditionally, this style of real estate required the participation of a major financial backer. Flyt believes that through the power of tokenization, the firm can open up these investment opportunities to a host of new private investors.

Importantly, the Flyt Hospital Fund is a South African Section 12J fund. This is a critical categorization as Section 12J investments receive tax breaks and a host of other advantages in the market. The concept of Section 12J properties first entered the market via the Income Tax Act of 2009 as a way to stimulate market growth. Importantly, South African taxpayers who invest in local 12j companies receive a plethora of benefits including a 100% tax deduction.

Decker was keen to go into some of the finer details related to the project. He described how the new services benefit both traditional and token investments. Flyt will allow both fiat and tokenized investments into the fund. Consequently, this strategy will increase the liquidity of the entire project. Lastly, Decker described why the transparency provided by the new tech is a major upgrade for the market.

Partnerships

Flyt Property Investment worked with the Swiss-based financial technology supplier Bakari to make the project a reality. Speaking publicly, Ciaran MacDevette, Co-Founder of Bakari, explained that the new project embraces next-generation financial technology. Additionally, MacDevette stated that Bakari was “proud” to be working with the Flyt Hospitality Fund. He also discussed the reasons why his firm continues to be a leader in FinTech innovation.

Flyt token (FLYT)

FLYT is an ERC-20 compatible token that lives on the Ethereum blockchain. As an ERC-20 compliant token, the platform enjoys some significant advantages including higher interoperability. For example, all Flyt tokens can be self-custodied by investors with only the need for an ERC-20 compatible wallet.

Cape Town appears to be Africa’s new blockchain epicenter. These latest developments are sure to place Flyt Property Investments in a category of their own. For now, the African markets are primed and ready for large scale tokenization.
