Block Estates plans to initially launch asset-backed tokenized real estate investments that investors can access by purchasing Block Estates ERC20 complaint security tokens. Token holders will enjoy the benefits that will be attached to the Block Estates security tokens including income, profit sharing and potentially token price appreciation.
Block Estates’ overall business model encompasses the creation of a real estate industry ecosystem powered by a blockchain platform. This will provide a frictionless, borderless and efficient system to facilitate a wide range of real estate related services where transactions between parties will be undertaken in real time whilst utilising a safe and secure system.
“Token holders will enjoy the benefits that will be attached to the Block Estates security tokens including income, profit sharing and potentially token price appreciation.”
The introduction of vertical tokenized services in addition to investments is planned to enhance our service offering and position Block Estates to become a global leader in the Real Estate Blockchain market.
The Company has said that development of the platform will be undertaken over three phases with development of phase 1 being well advanced as at September 2018. Launch of the Block Estates beta platform with initial investment features is scheduled for late 2018 with increased functionality being progressively added. Phase 2 and 3 will further expand platform functionality and will facilitate a diverse range of services including real estate asset investment, management, trading and monitoring. Block Estates aims to achieve this through development of a proprietary blockchain platform.
Block Estates is developing a real estate investment platform for the blockchain era which will give investors direct access to an innovative, lucrative and a real estate backed asset class to invest in. Investments will be launched in leading global markets and investors will gain access to both domestic and cross border investments via the Block Estates platform. An initial portfolio of real estate assets will be secured, tokenized and made available for investment during the Block Estates STO. Investors wanting to take part in the STO can simply purchase tokens from the Block Estates website. The tokens will be implemented through Ethereum Smart Contracts and will be ERC20 compliant. Following the STO, we plan to list the tokens on a digital token exchange to provide trading liquidity.

Comments Off on Taipei-Taiwan’s Tourism Bureau is promoting mountain tourism at the 4-day Taipei International Travel Fair that began Friday.
The bureau is focusing on five north-south mountain ranges — the Central Mountain, Xueshan, Yushan, Alishan and the Coastal Mountain ranges — in its pavilion at the fair, said bureau Deputy Director-General Chang Shi-chung (???).
Chang said there will be various exhibitions and forums on the mountains of Taiwan, as well as its unique cultural features such as historic trails and aboriginal lifestyles.
Taiwan is preparing to market 2020 as the Year of Mountain Tourism, after its efforts to position the country as an important international mountaineering destination in July, when the government allowed public access to the island’s national parks.
Previously, people who wanted to visit restricted “ecological protected areas” in Taiwan’s national parks had to apply for permits from both the National Police Agency and the Construction and Planning Agency.
Now, however, the Construction and Planning Agency has launched a new mountain permit application portal that requires mountain visitors to apply for only one permit and provides fast-track processing to expedite applications, the bureau said.
Much of Taiwan is covered by mountains, and it has 268 mountains of over 3,000 meters, according to the Tourism Bureau website.
That environment has made hiking and mountain climbing one of the favorite pastimes of Taiwan residents.
The number of permits issued to Taiwanese citizens and foreign nationals for access to trails in Yushan, Taroko and Shei Pa national parks has risen from 153,736 in 2016 to 187,053 in 2017 and 201,526 in 2018, according to Construction and Planning Agency figures.
In 2018, foreign nationals accounted for 7.24 percent of the permits issued.
There will be around 1,700 booths from 60 countries at the fair, to be held Nov. 8-11 at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center.
The fair, the largest of its kind in Taiwan, will feature South Korean and Japanese tourism operators amid growing local interest in travel to those countries.
