If you a seasoned investor, you’d know how far the real estate investment has come. But, if you are new to investing in asset-backed tokens, we have all the information you need to update yourself. This blog will help you bridge the gap between how it started and where it is now and introduce you to GreatX- a new-age real estate investment platform.

What are asset-backed tokens?

Asset-based tokens are a recent development in the financial transaction space. These tokens are a growing class of digital assets that have introduced the world to a secure and regulated digital ledger investment.
But how do asset-backed tokens work? We’re glad you asked!
An asset-backed token derives its value from something not there on the blockchain but is a virtual representation of a physical asset such as oil, gold, fine art, or real estate property. Assets like these are converted into digital assets on the blockchain to make it possible for investors to invest in and own a fraction of that asset. As the value of the asset increases in real-time, people owning a digital token for the same get a return on their investment. That is how asset-backed token investment work.
In real estate terms, physical assets are properties such as a hotel room, an apartment, or a land space. Real estate investors invest in asset-backed tokens to earn profit as the asset appreciates. Superficially, these look like any other form of investment, the only difference being it is digital. But if you dig deeper, you’ll understand that it has more to offer. Let’s look at the perks of investing in asset-backed tokens.

Why invest in asset-backed tokens?

Whether you are an investor, business owner, or a normal citizen, investing in asset-backed tokens is open to all and benefits everyone.
Real estate is one of the traditional asset classes people love to invest in, as it is synonymous with profit. But not everyone can take custody of one highly profitable property and afford it all alone. Digital tokens have allowed a larger pool of investors to invest in it and enjoy profits collectively. Investors from different parts of the world can invest in an esteemed property without needing to take full ownership of it. The ownership is distributed among the pool of investors. This offers a great opportunity to participate in wealth creation for both seasoned and nascent investors.
Furthermore, the concept of blockchain, on which real estate tokens are based, helps solve a major problem that persisted since the beginning. Earlier, investing in real estate assets involved a lot of paperwork and intermediaries, which resulted in confusion and chaos. But today, blockchain has digitized everything and introduced great security and trust. Blockchain has brought transparency to the whole real estate investment process, which means transactions are now verifiable and immutable.
