MBK, a Tokyo-based and Tokyo Stock Exchange-listed merchant bank, has signed a deal for the tokenization of property in Estonia.
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.
