Investors can participate and invest in fully regulated and compliant tokenized profitable assets .
Tokenization of Assets
Our world is full of untapped real-world assets. From private equity, real estate, gold reserves, fine art to agriculture, tangible items- have been difficult to subdivide or physically transfer. These trades are also more difficult to track due to the regulatory nature of paper transactions, especially when it involves cross-border legislation.
Asset tokenization is the process of converting ownership rights in a particular asset into a digital token on a blockchain. These can include unique hash values which represent physical assets, financial instruments, real estate, equity, bonds, fund units, etc
You have an apartment worth $200,000.It can be converted into 200,000 tokens, where each token is equal to 0.0005% share of the apartment. Then, tokens are issued on any blockchain platform that can support smart contracts. When a user buys one token, it means they buy 0.0005% of the asset’s ownership. If someone buys 80,000 tokens, they own 40% of the asset. If they buy all 200,000 tokens, they become 100% owner of that property.
Blockchain is an immutable public ledger that ensures once you purchase tokens, you cannot delete the ownership.So, we took an asset, tokenized it and built its digital representation on the blockchain
- No territorial barriers
An investor can invest in a property located in any part of the world without visiting there physically.
- Elimination of middlemen
Tokenization removes the need for intermediaries with blockchain’s ability to provide immutability and transparency.
- Fractional Ownership
When assets are digitized, they become highly divisible. Thus, investors can invest in small percentages of tokenized assets.
- Improved liquidity
Bringing the investment process on the blockchain provides a low-friction environment. Asset tokenization enables the automated transfer of ownership while ensuring compliance.
- Quick and cheaper transactions
Since the transaction and transfer of tokens are done with smart contracts, the exchange process is automated. . As a result, it fastens the deal execution with lower transaction fees.
- Broader Investor Base
Traditionally, the trading of real-world assets has a restriction on the level of fractionalization. But asset tokenization eliminates the limitation by making it possible to sell or buy tokens representing fractions of ownership.
How does Fintelum Work?
Fintelum works with high growth projects and help them in issuing Security token which are fully compliant and regulated in the jurisdiction. People can invest in these projects starting at 50 Euro!
When investors put money into a project through Fintelum, they receive a token in return. The type of token will represent ownership of asset. The token is bound by both securities and crowdfunding laws .These will be clearly laid out in the offering document .
Security token should not be confused with Cryptocurrency or ICO which are either decentralized and do not represent ownership of any asset or are not regulated.
Fintelum thus provides a method using blockchain through which investor can get access to global assets .They can invest ,trade and monitor their portfolio.
