OUR FOCUS

Blockchain is opening the floodgates of investment sourcing through fractionalization of real assets. Fractionalizing is the process of digitally dividing or separating ownership interests into small units which can be purchased and sold. This means that now it is possible for anyone from anywhere to invest in, and participate in, the growth potential offered by traditionally exclusive opportunities. Access for all is now possible. Such opportunities include commercial real estate, multi-family housing, private companies, commodities, venture capital funds, private equity funds, hedge funds, start-ups, and even art and wine. Now it is possible for a start-up coffee shop entrepreneur to purchase a fractionalized unit of the very building that leases her coffee shop space and effectively lower her realized rent cost! This democratization of wealth can have extremely positive effects in a community. Here, pride of investment and ownership surely will be reflected in the newly incentivized care-taking of one’s community (and investment!). Investing can now be uniquely personal and community centric and/or globally derived and exotic with accessibility being the underlying key.

Blockchain is disrupting the traditional issuance process and just as there are tremendous benefits to investors, issuers and asset holders looking to extract equity from otherwise illiquid and indivisible investments can now look to blockchain solutions to open up liquidity sources never before possible. GlobalChain Group, Inc. can offer holistic solutions for blockchain integration maximizing economic and enterprise value. Transaction processing is now instant and immutable, or unchangeable. This record of ownership, contract terms, and other important searchable data safely resides encrypted and decentralized on a public or private blockchain ledger for analysis, audit, and transparency.

Investment and contract rules, regulations, restrictions, conditional payments, escrow terms, dividends, etc. are all possible within a smart-contract security which can be coded to self-execute based on these facets. Pure and simple, this is the future and the future is incredible.
