Launched in 2018, the company has raised $2 million in capital from investors to fund the development of its leading real-world asset tokenization platform.
DigiShares is raising an additional $1.2 million through the crowdfunding platform Republic. This will help fund the company’s expansion, including the development of a new – and the first of its kind – blockchain-based exchange for real estate shares called RealEstate.Exchange.
Just as Shopify is the go-to platform for businesses wanting to sell products on the internet, the world needs a go-to platform for businesses wanting to sell shares on the internet. DigiShares aims to fill that void.
With RealEstate.Exchange, the company also aims to build the go-to exchange for real estate shares.
The DigiShares platform was built to enhance share offerings and enable anyone in the world to seamlessly:
— Invest as little as a few 100$s, with instantaneous settlement.
— Receive digital cash distributions frequently, straight to their wallet.
— Trade their shares 24/7/365, without any intermediaries, at low cost and compliantly.
— Gain transparency, with smart contract controlled corporate actions.
In doing so, developers, funds and other issuers can gain a competitive edge, set better terms and grow faster.
The current platform already boasts 150+ clients on all continents, including large real estate developers, investment banks, alternative asset funds, crowdfunding platforms and even a top 10 global consulting firm.
The growth potential for a leader in the tokenization space is massive. BlackRock CEO Larry Fink said that “the next generation for markets will be tokenization of securities.” Citi and BCG project respectively $4T & $16T in assets tokenized by 2030.
By undertaking this funding round, DigiShares is seeking to solidify its position as a leader in this growing space. The campaign is now live on Republic and can be found at https://www.republic.com/digishares
