Full-service investment company Genesis Block Ventures (GBV) announces an investment in LABS Group, a blockchain real estate investment platform powered by its LABS ecosystem token through decentralized finance (DeFi).
LABS is an end-to-end real estate digitization ecosystem to make it easy and hassle-free for people to invest. LABS’ ecosystem includes its blockchain-built issuance and crowdfunding platform, and a licensed digital security exchange, enabling fractionalization of real estate assets.
LABS allows asset owners to tokenize and sell real estate assets directly on a real estate focused licensed digital security exchange, via its Security Token Exchange Offering (STEO) service. Properties listed on the exchange can be invested and transacted through blockchain, using cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum. Additionally, the platform will offer leveraging options and improve liquidity with its integrated DeFi components.
LABS’ native token $LABS is the utility token that supports the entire ecosystem, driving utility and rewards through crowdfunding, token issuance, lending, and the LABS exchange. With the core advantage in collateralized lending, $LABS tokens enable holders to leverage their assets for liquidity, as well as staking the tokens for streaming rewards.
