Rise Markets
Rise Markets
August 01, 2016
Rise Housing is a social impact company using cryptocurrency (RSE) to tokenize buildings. Our platform allows tenants and every day investors to be able to buy equity in real estate, one token at a time, without any lending or interest rates involved. Our platform creates liquidity for the current asset owners of large, multifamily buildings, without enduring the expense and wasted time of the traditional selling process. A currency is only as strong as its circulation and what it is backed by, and our security token will not only be used by large real estate investors looking for a leaner way to liquidate, but we are positioned to be in the hands of otherwise disengaged tenants and small investors, creating high transaction volume in a new global asset class
