Tokenization refers to the process of creating a virtual representation of a real asset by creating fungible tokens which enables fractional ownership. If such tokens are created on a public and permissionless blockchain such as the Ethereum blockchain, they are immediately tradeable worldwide 24/7. Established token standards and immediate settlement are further benefits of this novel technology. Tokenization has the potential to remedy the illiquidity problems of real estate investments. However, outdated regulatory frameworks and regulatory uncertainties currently still limit a broad adoption of the technology.
