Stephane De Baets, the president of ASPD’s issuer, Elevated Returns, described the listing as: “An important step toward unlocking liquidity to quality real estate projects, which has the potential to open the door to a $6 trillion commercial real estate market.” Elevated Returns plans to tokenize a further $1 billion worth of real estate projects using Tezos’ FA1.2 smart contract standard in the future.Aspen’s listing comes after an unprecedented surge in trade activity on tZERO, with the platform hosting nearly $8 million in volume during July.Last month saw tZERO’s TZROP token explode from $1.20 to $4, while Overstock’s OSTKO token rallied from $19.60 to $57.50.The bullish momentum has continued during August, with OSTKO last trading for $82, and TZROP changing hands for $5.10.
July was also a particularly strong month for real estate tokens, with the nine property tokens traded on RealT’s secondary markets posting gains of between 7% and 35%.Share this: Blockchain in Business: What Do Companies’ 10-K Reports Say About DLT?
