Valued at more than $228 trillion and trading at more than $2.5 trillion annually, real estate represents the largest single alternative asset class that simultaneously suffers from low liquidity due to high capital requirements, long lock-up periods and arduous transaction processes.
With a properly designed blockchain-based real estate exchange, the transition from legacy securities to digital securities does not change the outcome of the transaction, only how easily it is executed and managed. In essence, digital securities are merely a format update to a massive, long-established, but traditionally inefficient segment of the regulated securities market.
This fact has become widely recognized in government and industry circles. Yet, in order for digital securities to gain meaningful market traction, vibrant and regulated secondary markets where such digital securities can trade are necessary.
This summit features distinguished panelists representing different stakeholder groups essential for exchange-traded digital asset securities to become a commercial reality – a government regulator, an institutional asset manager and a security token standards organization. Please join us for what will undoubtedly be a highly engaging discussion regarding how the commercial real estate sector is moving forward (or not) in this area.
