Homeflux: A Blockchain-Based Real Estate Crowdfunding Platform
We are not incorporated company yet, but upon granting fund, the team will start the corporation in Dubai, in United Arab Emirates, and then to be regulated by the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) as an Operator of a Property Investment Crowdfunding Platform.
Upon success in one region, the project will expand to other regions.
Homeflux is a blockchain-based real estate crowdfunding platform that allows users from all over the world to invest in fractional ownership of properties. By using blockchain technology, Homeflux makes real estate investing more accessible, affordable, and transparent for everyone.
To get started, users simply need to submit their passport and pass KYC. Once approved, they can browse and invest in properties listed on the Homeflux mobile app. Each property is divided into tokenized fractions, which users can purchase with $CFX tokens.
Once a user has purchased a fraction of a property, they will receive a share certification as proof of ownership. The Homeflux team will be responsible for buying and leasing the property on behalf of investors. Investors will receive a monthly rent return, and they can only sell their property after 1 year.
Homeflux offers a number of advantages over traditional real estate investing, including:
• Accessibility: Homeflux makes real estate investing accessible to everyone, regardless of their income or location.
• Affordability: Users can invest in fractional ownership of properties for a fraction of the cost of buying a property outright.
• Transparency: All transactions on the Homeflux platform are recorded on the blockchain, providing complete transparency and security.
• Liquidity: Homeflux share can be traded on exchanges, allowing investors to easily sell their property fractions.
Homeflux is still in its early stages of development, but it has the potential to revolutionize the real estate industry. By making real estate investing more accessible, affordable, and transparent, Homeflux can help more people achieve their financial goals.
Imagine that you are a young professional who lives in a major city. You have been dreaming of investing in real estate and start making profit, but the high cost of housing has made it impossible. With Homeflux, you can invest in a fraction of a property for a fraction of the cost. You will then receive a monthly rent return, and you can sell your property fraction after 1 year.
Homeflux is a great way for crypto investors of all income levels to invest in real estate. It is also a great way to diversify your investment portfolio.
