What can you find in the VALOR marketplace?
Tokenized alternative investments
Tokenization is the conversion of rights to an asset into a cryptographic token issued on the blockchain. The focus of the VALOR marketplace is on alternative investments and crypto.
Traditional alternative investments constitute a rapidly expanding $7 trillion industry – but while they are highly profitable, these less liquid assets are not easily accessible to average investors. Until tokenization:
Mining Farm Participate in the revenues of a cryptocurrency mining farm. Own part of the server infrastructure in the form of tokens.
Crypto Fund Participate in a fund that invests in cryptocurrencies, protocol and utility tokens.
Tokenized Gold or Diamonds Own physical gold or diamonds, safely stored in a reliable jurisdiction. Tokens are 100% backed by the physical assets.
Venture Capital Participate in tokenized venture capital or private equity funds. Tokens are more liquid than traditional VC and PE.
Real Estate Projects Participate in a tokenized share of a real estate or construction project.
Project Financing Contribute to impactful investment projects such as the construction of an off-grid energy facility in Africa. Help create a better world and earn a return on your investment.
Start-up Funding (ICO) Participate in the initial coin offering of a start-up or growth company.
Advantages of putting assets on the blockchain:
Decentralized record of ownership No need to trust a bank or any other centralized institution to keep a safe record of the ownership of your assets.
Smart contract based execution Self-executing securities based on smart contracts will allow for more complex conditional payment structures to be reflected, automatically.
Enhanced liquidity Tokens benefit from blockchain-enabled liquidity and can be traded at any time. This creates greater liquidity in traditionally illiquid asset classes like private equity and physical assets.
Instant execution The blockchain accommodates both transfer transactions and a record of ownership (ledger). Transfer of ownership is instant - instead of the 2-3 day settlement time on today’s stock exchanges.
Fractional ownership Tokens represent a tiny fraction of the asset’s value, making investing in that asset more affordable to a wider group of investors.
24/7 access Just as with cryptocurrencies, tokenized investments can be traded any time, from anywhere.
