In an announcement made on Monday MBK said that it will be working with BitOfProperty.

Converting blockchain-based tokens

The BOP is a Singapore-incorporated, Tallinn-operating enterprise that’s already selling fractional ownership of real estate in the EU member state. The company said that it has five properties that are currently in the capital of the country yielding somewhere between 5.3 and 6.59 percent.

The announcement mentioned that BOP will be responsible for acquiring the properties. It will work together with MBK in converting blockchain-based tokens which then will be traded through Angoo Fintech, an Estonian company that was acquired by MBK in May 2019.

Angoo Fintech set up to run its platform by the end of August, although it got delayed due to regulatory compliance issues.
