BlockEstate is planning to launch its very own security token offering (STO). According to the official whitepaper, the idea behind the project is pretty simple:

Proceeds from the STO will form a fund that can then be used to purchase promising real estate in U.S. (North and South Carolina) with profits from the leasing or resale of the real estate being used to buy out and eventually burn the native token, a.k.a. BEAT. This method will increase the cost of the tokens over time. The remaining profit goes to the acquisition of new real estate and the cycle continues.

The investment will be of two types: long-term and stable assets which are expected to get a 6-9% per annum and high-yielding but risky assets with an expected yield of 15-30% per annum.

The investment scheme is further described in the whitepaper. In particular:


Thanks to its partnership with Polymath, which is responsible for the release of the BEAT security token, the underlying asset will be built according to the ST-20 standard on the Ethereum blockchain. The total number of tokens offered for sale is 100 million but the team has the right to issue an additional 10% for its members in the case of a full collection of caps and an increase in the fund’s estimate of at least 25%. This tokens will serve as a form of performance fee with the BlockEstate team. Team tokens are locked for five years.

In terms of the distribution of proceeds from the STO, the main part (93-99%) in the first year will go to direct investment in long-term real estate projects as described in the scheme above; 0.5% per quarter for operating expenses; and 1-7% of the fund’s value will be held in dollars as a reserve.
