Blockimmo is a company based in Zug and its platform allows tokenising properties. This first round of financing allowed investors to receive shares in the company through tokens that represent digital certificates of invested capital.
In fact, the IMMO token is a security token to all intents and purposes and therefore lends itself well to this type of market: all the legal functions of the certificates are represented by smart contracts. Moreover, the digital real estate register is obviously located on the public Ethereum blockchain which is automatically updated with each transfer.
According to Raphael Haldner, director of funds and products at Bank Frick, responsible for the physical custody of these token certificates, the Blockimmo team has worked hard to integrate the blockchain into this sector and find a possible solution to apply it.
The IMMO token is currently tradable on Stx.swiss, a decentralised exchange for digital assets.
