Blocksquare Unveils Oceanpoint v0.5

RWA tokenization protocol, Blocksquare, has released its Oceanpoint v0.5 launchpad that features Marketplace Pools for decentralized real estate investment and tokenization. This update streamlines the process for marketplace operators and community members to garner funding in tokenized real estate

Marketplace Pools allow operators to present proposals to the BST community. These proposals can include detailed business plans and key performance indicators. Community members then approve proposals for investment, starting with a minimum deposit of 500 sBST.  Proposals have to reach 100,000 sBST to activate full community support and enhanced APY incentives.

According to Denis Petrovcic, co-founder and CEO of Blocksquare, “this launch underscores Blocksquare’s drive to progress RWA tokenization through community governance and funding.” Petrovcic also believes that Oceanpoint v0.5 encourages a decentralized marketplace ecosystem where both the community members and marketplace operators have the tools and incentives they need to thrive in this ecosystem. 

The launchpad also makes sure that there is inclusive participation for all of those who want to be involved with the process as there are flexible contribution limits. Additionally, Blocksquare is making security a priority as investments are kept safe through a dual-lock mechanism. 

Marketplace Operators can secure the necessary support for projects more easily and further demonstrate their commitment to a project by setting performance metric goals, with a specified timeframe, and depositing a stake as collateral. Community members can then support these initiatives to benefit from higher APY rewards as supported marketplaces achieve their growth targets. 

What is RWA Tokenization?

Real-world asset (RWA) tokenization involves creating virtual investment vehicles on the blockchain linked to tangible assets like real estate, precious metals, art, and collectibles. Instead of traditional physical documents like a deed to a house, ownership is digitized and recorded on the blockchain. This digital ownership can be traded directly between parties or fractionalized. This allows multiple people to invest in a single asset.

There are many advantages to RWA tokenization. By eliminating intermediaries like lawyers, brokers, and banks, costs are greatly reduced. The blockchain's continuous operation also makes it possible to trade assets fast, efficient, and round-the-clock. 

This approach also lowers the barrier to entry, which creates more liquidity in the market. The transparency inherent in blockchain technology also increases trust and accountability among traders.

The scope of tokenization extends beyond high-value items like vintage cars, real estate, and gold. It also includes U.S. Treasuries, currencies, and stocks.
