Investing > Best Alternative Investments Platform
Smartlands is a global platform for issuing digital securities designed for the 21-st century crowdfunding. We aim to bring together token issuers and investors by creating blockchain-based securities backed by digital ownership of shares in multiple asset classes. Smartlands Platform was the first to tokenize a property in the UK - a student accommodation in Nottingham.
By leveraging blockchain technology, we introduce a unique crowdfunding model which dramatically reduces costs of raising capital, opens access to higher-yield investment opportunities both to institutional and retail investors, and in the long run drives global financial inclusion.
Both the idea and technology are already fully realised. First, we created a unique digital marketplace, a one-stop-shop for people looking to park their hard-earned capital. Then we added the ability to crowdfund investments using security tokens – digital representation of the ownership right to a share of an asset. Finally, we created a legal framework and became an appointed representative registered with the Financial Conduct Authority in the UK. We are now firmly established as a leading global platform that provides a comprehensive proprietary blockchain-based infrastructure for regulated issuance of digital securities.
Our plan is to continue building a global investment ecosystem and increase our portfolio of tokenized assets up to $100 million by the end of 2020, passing $1 billion mark by 2024. Currently, we’re considering tokenizing 30+ assets around the globe, including a Disruptive Fund that invests in mid-stage technology startups and precisely focuses on agritech, advanced robotics, IoT, big data-driven AI, and fintech.
Founded in 2017, Smartlands is based in London, UK. For more information, please visit https://smartlands.io/.
