It would be interesting to consider how Keynes's quantity theory of money could impact the real estate industry and corporate finance in general. Real estate investment trusts Today, there are many types of real estate investment ventures and funds looking to take advantage of tokenization, and one of the most relevant use cases are real estate investment trusts, some of which are listed on the biggest exchanges in the world, while others are public but nonlisted or private. According to the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, there are about 1,100 REITs that have filed tax returns in the U.S., and collectively own more than $3 trillion in gross real estate assets across the country.
Firstly, through the utilization of blockchain technology, conventional and highly regulated real estate investment vehicles can operate at unprecedented levels of efficiency by making programmable governance and built-in regulatory compliance possible on the platform and/or the security token levels, as well as by automating cap table and investor management processes. It remains to be seen when - or if - tokenization will help traditional types of private real estate investment vehicles to qualify as viable short-term investments, but there is a good chance that they could receive this distinction, especially in local economies, thereby bolstering the overall demand for real estate investments. As long as the demand for residential and commercial real estate assets stays strong, it is fair to speculate that, at least at a macro-level, demand for tokenized real estate investments will only increase compared to other types of private equities.
