Japanese Real Estate To Use Digital Securities To Help Rundown Areas

  • Japanese Real Estate To Use Digital Securities To Help Rundown Areas

    A blockchain-based solution to address the number of unused homes in the Japanese countryside has been developed by two companies recently.

    One of the companies, a compliance platform for token issuers, Securitize joined forces with the Tokyo-based LIFULL in order to create a funding platform which utilised digital security to invest in real estate. According to the press release published earlier today, the new partnership between the two companies has been successful in making it evident that blockchain technology and digital security is more effective for crowdfunding for the Japanese real estate market than traditional methods.

    Working with BUIDL, a subsidiary of Securitize, LIFULL Social Funding will be using the new platform to further boost up homes in the countryside of the country that have become abandoned over the years. The co-founder and CEO of Securitize, Carlos Domingo has given his thoughts on the new project and what it means for Japan. He went on to say:

    “Our collaborative success in creating a comprehensive platform solution for crowdfunded real estate funds is very exciting, and it is a great start for Securitize and LIFULL as we work to modernize the Japanese real estate market together.”

    This move by the company is intended to provide an incentive for investors to crowdfund the real estate in places that are rundown and no longer used by the people.

    In explaining the issues behind the investment, LIFULL said the following:
    "To address vacant houses nationwide, it is necessary to actively promote renovation and conversion of these homes for other uses to maintain and improve the value of the real estate. That’s a difficult problem. Regional revitalization of real estate crowdfunding is being promoted as a solution to this problem.”

  • Japan knows how to do things, especially when it comes to digitalization, technology, or money. I wish more countries or even real estate agencies would take advantage of their tools. Some agencies indeed started doing this; for example, https://www.playarealestategroup.com/Tulum_Real_Estate_Listings/page_2515901.html turned some unused houses into beautiful touristic housing. I've been impressed with the effort because it's not easy and it requires lots of money. Back to what Japan planned to do, I always had an immense appreciation for their effort and ideas. I wish more countries would follow their example.

  • I've heard about this new technique in the real estate industry. I was thinking about getting it for my new BnB. I've been planning on looking into it after I finish reading the brian page - https://chaddo.com/index.php/brain-page-airbnb-bnb-formula-review/. In the meantime, I was looking for a space to buy. I was thinking of one in Florida. Most of the real estate spaces there have this new Japanese method of security which I find very interesting and safe. And considering it's digital, it's even better and easier to use. And harder to unlock by strangers that are ready to get into it illegally.
