AlphaPoint’s Head of Product Asha Dakshinamoorthy contributed expertise on real estate tokenization to a recently published research paper assembled by a working group from the MIT Digital Currency Initiative.
Tokenized Security & Commercial Real Estate | Executive Summary
The following research investigates the application of security tokenization to commercial real estate assets. Primary research through interviews was conducted to uncover some of the most salient use cases and blockchain benefits for the space. The report explores three domains of blockchain application to real estate: (1) the application of blockchain to securities issuance and trading, (2) the application of blockchain to the real estate investment value chain, and (3) the application of blockchain to the representation of the physical assets themselves. Overall, we find that the value creation provided by tokenization can come in several layers, with some standalone benefits emerging by applying tokenization to each of the three domains in isolation. However, significant synergies can arise from combining these layers. As integration increases, additional features become possible. Our conclusion offers a general framework that can be used to perform future research on the tokenization of other types of assets and their related securities.
