Crypto AM shines its spotlight on Bricktrade – a London-based property tokenisation platform
Bricktrade is the UK’s first property investment platform that tokenises real estate assets and opens them up to the possibility of investment from crypto market participants, whilst simultaneously providing real asset-backed investments.
Blending the benefits of both property developers and investors in one space, Bricktrade is setting itself apart with its unique focus on accessibility. Bricktrade’s ultimate goal is to help alleviate the global housing shortage by making unproductive capital productive and assisting in the increase in housing supply.
On this point, founder and CEO of Bricktrade, Guv Kang said: “Our aim at Bricktrade is to create an innovative and accessible platform to facilitate the symbiotic relationship between property developers and investors. It’s important to make the property market accessible to everyone. That’s why at Bricktrade, it is in our long-term vision to contribute to closing the gap in the global housing shortage, ultimately helping people climb the property ladder.”
The Bricktrade Solution
Like all industries, real estate investing has its fair share of limitations such as, high deposits, high fees, arduous paperwork and even if you fulfill all of these it takes months of anticipation. Fortunately, Bricktrade is a one-stop solution to many of these concerns and to both property developers and investors within the space.
Real-Estate Investor Benefits :
Bricktrade tokens are backed by real assets i.e. property which inherently reduces an investors risk and protects one’s capital. This shows the safety that comes with investing with Bricktrade.
Bricktrade allows you to invest from as little as £500 through their cutting-edge crowdfunding platform.
With Bricktrade, investors can directly participate in the £8.2 trillion UK property market and its historical price appreciation trend.
Bricktrade’s technology enables the direct recording of real estate transactions into a distributed, immutable ledger that is viewable by all parties. Every transaction is validated and sent by the network that makes up the marketplace.
Bricktrade facilitates token cashouts at any time after 90 days which is a significantly shorter period of time in comparison to the average term of 5 to 7 years in most real estate projects. Besides that, the platform also provides investors with the ease to invest with both crypto and fiat.
With Bricktrade, investors will be able to choose from a range of property projects, catering to different investor objectives: Fixed income- Fixed return Construction Finance and Fractional Ownership of built assets.
Real-Estate Developer Benefits :
With Bricktrade, developers will be able to sell existing or even in-development projects on the platform, for-profit, new ventures or to finance upcoming projects.
Increased Net Operating Income (NOI)
With the elimination of middlemen, the Bricktrade platform will be able to help property developers source funding at a significantly lower rate in comparison to conventional financial institutions.
Compliance & Due Diligence
Consider yourself well taken care of by Bricktrade. The team firstly carries out thorough due diligence of the projects around, valuations, costings and timings of each project. They then allow developer onboarding, verification of title deeds, and all other legal and regulatory compliance issues for all property developers. Bricktrade has also announced they have recently partnered with an FCA-approved platform to support compliance.
Globalisation is at the core of Bricktrade. With properties and investors around the world, developers can rest assured that their project will be seen by millions of potential investors on the Bricktrade platform.
Housing Association Status
Arguably, the most innovative benefit of Bricktrade to property developers is its very own UK government-backed Housing Association. What does this mean for a property developer? This means the platform can absorb a developer’s social housing allocation (Section 106 assets), removing a developer’s inventory risk.
Staying true to its mission, this will also allow Bricktrade to provide affordable housing to the most vulnerable in society.
So why Bricktrade?
Bricktrade stands out in the field for more than just one reason. The platform offers six cutting-edge advantages you won’t want to miss out on.
World Class Screening
Bricktrade is nothing short of world-class. The team personally screens developers and properties. Bricktrade only permits high-yield properties to be tokenised and high potential developers onto the platform. This is to ensure that investors will fully benefit from rental yield and possible future capital appreciation.
Liquidity & Wallet Transparency
Thanks to the utilisation of blockchain technology, Bricktrade users are given a wallet to hold their tokens, property investments. The wallet facilitates internal platform transfers as well as transfers from the platform to fiat currency bank accounts.
Furthermore, Bricktrade’s technology allows investors to have full visibility of their funds. In addition to that, investors will also be able to track the performance of each and every one of their properties as well as the income they generate.
