Relsify-Revolution

The times they are a-changin

as the phrase of a popular song goes, this fits aptly to how digital innovations are changing the way we do things in today's present time. Searches for terms like crypto, blockchains, web3 , have come on an increase as the world seeks to understand some of the shifts that have been ongoing for years now.

One major innovation of these times is known as blockchain technology, what is a blockchain? A blockchain is a system of recording information in a way that makes it difficult or impossible to change (immutable), hack, or cheat the system, it is an architecture that gives participants the ability to share a ledger that's updated through peer-to-peer replication each time a transaction occurs.

This brings us back to the center of our discussion.

What is Relsify and what do they offer?

Relsify is a property technology company incorporating blockchain technology to provide quality real estate experience by solving decades of real-time problems in the region (Africa). They plan to undertake this by taking physical real estate assets representing them as unique blockchain-based digital assets (security tokens) giving access to many to have fractional investments and stakes while also providing the liquidity and funding required by real estate developers. Taking Nigeria a country in Africa as an example, the country is faced with several crippling challenges in its real estate sector:

  • There is a huge housing and developmental deficit, a place like Lagos the economic capital of Nigeria has a shortfall of housing units to cater to its teeming population.

  • Limited access to funding by real estate developers

  • Poor document authenticity around properties often gives rise to disputes

  • Low foreign investments, as many have fears of doing business and have to resort to trying to find a trusted middleman

The Relsify Process

The purpose of Relsify is to act as a global decentralized marketplace where there is a low barrier of entry and the average Joe with as little as $1 can invest or have a stake in a piece of real estate. The developers host their properties and get access to fundings via transactions between them and the investors without the need for middlemen.

On the Relsify platform, the RELS token will act as the utility token or currency for the ecosystem , customers create accounts on the platform and check out verified properties they can choose to invest in, developers create unique security tokens for every property listed, which are given to the investors.

The Relsify ecosystem provides secure processing of these transactions by the power of the blockchain affording several benefits like:

  • It creates a safe pool for Developers, Investors, and Crypto Enthusiasts to access capital or properties that were previously inaccessible

  • Bring about global participation and foreign investments

  • Completely shatter the real estate investment entry barrier

  • Solve the issue of document authenticity by a blockchain-backed system of immutability

  • Simply ease of property ownership transfers to around 1-5mins

The list of novel benefits this innovation is bringing is quite endless, we are poised to see several more use-cases adopted in the times to come. For more information about Relsify and how they seek to implement this unique solution, you can check out their whitepaper on their website Relsify.
