Claiming to offer the “first-ever” regulated real-estate backed security token, Fundament said the "Real Estate Token" securitizes a right or share certificate using a digital token.

The token is tradeable globally and allows investors to liquidate their investment at “any time they want on designated secondary markets.” Investors can make deposits and withdrawals in euros or ether (ETH), per the announcement.

Fundament co-founder, Florian Glatz, said the firm is already preparing to tokenize other “highly attractive assets.”
