Black Tie Digital is a market-leading innovator in using distributed ledger technology to integrate legacy platforms, industries and markets. The Australian company recently announced the launch of its B4Real platform, which aims to make real estate transactions more reliable and efficient.

B4Real is a pioneer of the new global digital economy, combining the best of the crypto market with the world of real estate, allowing investors to diversify their portfolios in an attractive and reliable asset class.

In the face of massive crypto booms and busts, as well as rising demand for real estate, B4Real is pioneering a new way to invest in a sustainable future while still making money for its consumers.

Bringing Crypto and Real Estate Together

When comparing the movements of the crypto and real estate markets, it is impossible not to see the links between the two commodities. For starters, despite the periodic crashes and sell-offs, record real estate momentum is reflected in the cryptocurrency craze, which continues to rise. Although cryptocurrency prices have fallen, many currencies have increased significantly in value over the past few years.

For example, the price of Bitcoin has risen from just above zero in 2009 to a staggering $30,000 at the time of writing. Altcoins like Ethereum, Ripple, and Tether currently account for over 60% of the total global market capitalization, which stands at over $1 trillion.

People’s interest in cryptocurrency has exploded in the meantime. Cryptocurrencies are seen as a safe haven for those who think the old financial system is flawed, unstable, or even corrupt.

While real estate eclipses crypto in terms of total market capitalization, the tensions running through the two are very similar. Real estate, like bitcoin, is considered a safe haven for investors looking to lock in value and limit risk.

However, the often predatory actions of large financial organizations, such as converting large swathes of properties to rentals or time arbitrage, are driving typical working families out of the market. This could explain why nearly 40% of millennials think investing in cryptocurrency is a better option than real estate.

It is high time for these two asset classes to meet and befriend each other.
According to YouGov research, one in six Australians own Bitcoin, and two in five millennials own it. Additionally, millennials are increasingly viewing cryptocurrency as a more convenient option for saving for a down payment on a home. Many people would prefer to spread their savings among multiple baskets if they had the option.

The B4Real platform

B4Real is a safe and secure marketplace where crypto investors can diversify their holdings by converting their digital currencies into real-world assets. Registered developers, agents, and other industry participants can also use the platform to offer housing to crypto investors or issue regulatory-compliant tokenized real estate assets.
The B4Real platform is free for buyers and earns money through fees charged to real estate agents who use it to sell properties.

B4Real will be backed by lending partners who can offer under-collateralized crypto loans from trusted institutional sources at market-competitive rates, in addition to buyers and sellers.

As a result, cryptocurrency holders who cannot obtain traditional financing (and who would therefore normally be excluded from the housing market) can use B4Real to purchase property in Australia.

The B4RE token

The B4Real platform is powered by the B4RE utility token. The Tokenomics system is configured to automatically transfer 10% of fees to a secondary holding wallet. The tokens are then passed to DEXs to be traded on exchanges and liquidity pools. All generated LP tokens are delivered in a secure multisig wallet with limited access. This method of removing tokens from supply reduces the risk of slippage and maintains sustainable levels of exchange liquidity.

On the B4RE platform, value can be exchanged in the following ways:

When using the B4RE token, marketplace sellers will pay 30-40% less fees. Premium advertising fees and sales commissions fall into this category.

Buyers who use B4RE as part of their collateral when applying for a loan will benefit from lower interest rates. Buyers who hold B4RE tokens may be eligible for a variety of benefits, including reduced or waived stamp duty, furniture packs, green energy upgrades, and more.

Importantly, all B4RE token holders will have early or exclusive access to off-market property listings, as well as preferential treatment when requesting split real estate token offers.

On [Date TBA]Black Tie will launch a first decentralized offering (IDO) for $B4RE on the Polygon blockchain.
