NFT Investments PLC

 

("NFT Investments" or the "Company")

 

Capital investment into real estate platform Blimp Homes

 

NFT Investments PLC, (AQSE: NFT), an investment company specialising in non-fungible tokens ("NFTs"), is pleased to announce an investment of US$700,000 into Blimp Technologies Inc., trading as Blimp Homes ("Blimp"), a first-of-its-kind, decentralised real estate collaboration and search platform. 

 

The investment is being made as part of a US$1 million private equity fund-raising by Blimp, which is incorporated in Canada.

 

Blimp's platform rewards homebuyers, sellers, and real estate professionals for collaborating and contributing value to a tokenised network established by the Home Network Foundation ("Foundation"). It assists all parties in a property transaction with seamless searching, communication, and transaction features, while incentivising them with digital tokens.    

 

Blockchain technology represents an opportunity to restructure inefficiencies in the real estate market with regards to intermediary involvement and a lack of data transparency surrounding leads and transactions. The HOME Token builds on decentralised blockchain technology and acts as a reward to align value flows more broadly and fairly in the transactional ecosystem.

Matt Shaw, co-founder and chief executive of Blimp, said: "The traditional real estate model is fundamentally broken. By empowering customers, real estate agents, and other professionals to engage in direct, peer-to-peer collaboration, we can eliminate many of the stresses, delays, and disappointments that plague the homebuying process, and we are proud to have the support of NFT Investments in our pursuit of reinventing how homes are bought and sold."

Jonathan Bixby, Executive Chairman of NFT, said: "I am very pleased to announce our investment into Blimp Homes and our second investment to date. Blimp is operating in a fast-growing area that will bring the much-needed benefits of a decentralised marketplace to the real estate sector creating more transparency and efficiency. This technology has wide-ranging benefits and the potential to revolutionise the house buying process and generate significant value. We are proud to invest in Blimp."
