Fundament, a Berlin-based blockchain firm’s receipt of approval from BaFIN to issue blockchain-based bonds that are backed by real-estate. In an announcement on July 23, 2019, Fundament revealed that as a result of the regulator’s approval, it will be running a public offering valued at EUR 250 million ($280 million).
As a result, crypto fanatics in certain regions who want to invest as little as 50 euros in Germany’s real estate at a variable interest rate can opt to pay with ethereum instead.
Furthermore, the token sale will begin on August 2019 where it will be launched on the Ethereum blockchain. The process will adopt the standard procedure that was notable among Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) of 2017 and beyond. In addition, the tokenized bond can be withdrawn in the form of a foundation token to a wallet that is compatible with Ethereum’s blockchain.
Ethereum was like the second coming of Bitcoin, where you could build Dapps on the blockchain, but the transactions weren’t fast (relative to the 3rd and 4th generation blockchains). However, Ethereum’s mission is to replace internet third parties that store data, track financial instruments via smart contracts and eliminate the server / cloud model.
Despite not making a lot of noise in recent months, Ethereum remains a top 5 blockchain, at least by market cap and will be one of the blockchains that will still be around in 10 yrs. However, in the short term, price is correcting to the support / resistance line at $160.
