Abstract

This article analyses the opportunities and challenges of tokenization of real estate. First, the theoretical foundations (Blockchain and Smart Contracts) as well as the advantages and disadvantages of tokenization are discussed. The implementation of tokenization of a real estate is then illustrated by means of a practical example. The advantages of tokenization are the immediate worldwide trading of tokens 24/7, the transfer of ownership of the tokens in "real time", standardization with simultaneous flexibility, transparency and security in the trading of tokens. The technical implementation of the tokenization of a property is very simple. Regulatory uncertainties, however, currently still limit a broad application of the technology.
