[IMPACT] Please describe your proposed solution.

Real estate tokenization or tokenization of a real estate asset can be defined as the process of registering a real estate asset (such as a real estate property or a share in a company) and the rights attached to this asset (voting rights, right to receive dividends, etc.) on a digital token registered on a blockchain. These cumbersome circumstances lead to increased costs and time expenditures. However, if real estate is tokenized, time-consuming and inefficient processes through intermediaries become obsolete, as blockchain is based on the peer-to-peer principle. Blockchain technology therefore creates trust between two contractual partners and guarantees a secure process thanks to its technical basis. It also increases transparency and automation and enables the international transfer of tokens (real estate shares) in seconds.

The real estate industry itself is not agile and the buying and selling processes are very complex. In addition, unpredictable events such as construction errors and natural disasters can have a negative impact on liquidity.

Design efficient and cost-effective process solutions. This significantly increases liquidity and mitigates the negative impact. Therefore, a huge boost to liquidity is generated by the ability to fragment real estate investments through tokenization, i.e., effectively offering smaller shares at the desired price and the associated "partial tokenization."

This allows for the efficient use of intangible property assets through the sale of certain shares, which will certainly transform the sales process from static to dynamic. And it will offer owners much more flexibility.

Tokenization gives institutional and retail investors the opportunity to diversify their portfolios.

Let's take an example of how tokenization can be applied: Normally, you either pay rent or buy real estate. With tokenization, a combination of these two options is possible. You could own 60% of the property and acquire 40% by tokenization. This 40% can be offered on a secondary market and can work like a mortgage. You will not need a financial service provider or bank to do this. Therefore, the necessary capital can be obtained at any time from assets you already own that are not yet fungible.

[IMPACT] Please describe how your proposed solution will address the Challenge that you have submitted it in.

Concerning the investor

As regards traditional real estate investment, several solutions are offered to him:

The purchase of a property;

The purchase of shares in SCI (Société Civile Immobilière) or SCPI (Société Civile de Placement Immobilier);

The purchase of shares in real estate investment funds or commercial companies (notably SAS immobilières).

In terms of investment through the tokenization of real estate, the investor will acquire a token that could represent :

A property, its ownership and the rights attached to it;

A set of real estate properties, their ownership and the rights attached to them;

The share of a real estate, its ownership and the rights attached to it;

The shares of an SCI, SCPI, a real estate investment fund or a commercial company.

Good to know: it is possible to back the tokenization of a real estate asset with a smart contract to allow investors to be automatically paid rental income when the property is rented.

The advantages of the tokenization of the real estate for the issuer of the token

The following benefits can be noted:

Using the blockchain to divide a real estate asset or ownership into a multitude of tokens;

Possibility to diversify the markets by offering real estate assets all over the world without geographical barrier;

Increase the liquidity of a real estate asset by exchanging tokens on a new market open 7/7 and 24/24;

Possibility to use smart contracts to automate the contractual conditions of the token sale.

Benefits of real estate tokenization for the investor

It is possible to identify the following advantages:

Use the blockchain to acquire a property right on a real estate or a share of it;

Enable the rapid acquisition and sale of real estate tokens in a secure and decentralized manner through the blockchain;

Access the real estate market without a barrier to entry;

Obtain a low transaction cost for the purchase and sale of real estate tokens (as the law currently stands, there are no registration fees to be paid following the sale of real estate tokens on a blockchain). Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

[IMPACT] What are the main risks that could prevent you from delivering the project successfully and please explain how you will mitigate each risk?

Above all, tokenized assets are considered even more nascent than cryptocurrencies. While there are many benefits, new internationally aligned regulatory frameworks, including the definition of custody and supervision, are essential to democratize investments and make asset tokenization commonplace.

Currently, a portion of the players in traditional financial systems consider asset tokenization to be contrary to their interests, making them indifferent to the new opportunities offered by decentralized and democratized investments. Other concerns about asset tokenization are the apprehension of stability issues in the case of highly liquid markets, security and risk issues, trust issues and network scalability. It also highlights the need for public investment in financial education to reach new groups of investors.

In any case, the tokenization of assets is set to fundamentally change the power dynamics within financial markets in the coming decades, lowering monetary barriers for small investors, opening up new markets and opportunities, and broadening investor bases with the real potential to break down barriers to investment.

[FEASIBILITY] Please provide a detailed plan, including timeline and key milestones for delivering your proposal.

September - November 01: Design a website to map real estate in the city of Goma that is easily accessible by teams and identify real estate.

September - December 22: Create issue certificates that investors in real estate will use to sign for real estate. The claims are the real tokens that each investor and the real estate will possess, certifying the information on the real estate (possible details).

December - January 05: Gives the possibility to the general public to generate the tokenisers the real estate.

From March 05: Publish all the Tokens by linking them to the quantities of real estate in the DRC.

March 05: Offer validation tools on the website to certify the validity and generate token based on its identification format.

[FEASIBILITY] Please provide a detailed budget breakdown.

The production of the decentralized application to produce the tokens for each property will include the following.

Design Validation of the website $10000

Portfolio connection functionality

Mapping functionality

Validation functionality

Real estate catalog $60000

Road trips for three validators

Educate property owners

Onboard investors: $20000

Identify Cardano wallets that support DIDs.

Educate real estate investors on the benefits of using blockchain for real estate tokenization.

Support the acquisition of wallets by the through the onboarding process or the registry on the platform.

Tools and Equipment:

10 Tablets for real estate registration: $5000

[FEASIBILITY] If you are funded, will you return to Catalyst in a later round for further funding? Please explain why / why not.

No

Because real estate tokenization projects in the future only need to be started and the systems will be able to finance themselves for the further development

[AUDITABILITY] Please describe what you will measure to track your project's progress, and how will you measure these?

How tokenization could democratize investing

As the world transitions to digitization, the process of securitizing ownership of assets is also changing. Instead of a "physical" document, a digital token digitally represents certain conditions under certain circumstances.

[AUDITABILITY] What does success for this project look like?

The success of this project will consist of:

Introducing a Cardano-based Certified Trading Chain (CTC) certification system for the tokenization of real estate in the DRC.

Mapping of real estate in each city and certified city.

Develop and pilot technical methods to improve control.

Onboarding investors and small scale through the DApp.

Generate fees through validation and resale of DIDs.

[AUDITABILITY] Please provide information on whether this proposal is a continuation of a previously funded project in Catalyst or an entirely new one.

The real estate tokenization has the power to breakthrough the traditional real estate market through an innovative and safer negotiation environment, with no need to rely on a third party, contributing to the growth of Africa and ADA as well.

You are right when you say " new internationally aligned regulatory frameworks, including the definition of custody and supervision, are essential to democratize investments and make asset tokenization commonplace", however, you do not mention how it could be achievable.

Indeed, investments in education are imperative in order to guide people through this innovative, trustable and more secure way of investing, but people need to understand all that, and education has an important role there.

Yes It those on many levels in a very brilliant way.

1)First and foremost its solves a few challenges that has plaque African real estate market lack of liquidity and solves property identity issue when some sole proprietor business ownership issues when they often pass away. 2)Also it lowers the bar for small investors to participate in the real estate market and creates exposure to assets classes which might not have being available for small investors trying to have access to wealth creating opportunity so yes they have truck a gold mind if they can pull it off. 3) More so on boarding thousand of investors, real estate owners , this will further adoption on a massive scale if they are able to pull it off. 5) I also notice they talked about looking forward to increasing exposure of this new assets class they are creating to the rest of the global market of its digital tokenization economy that's about to boom which has started drive adoption in the developed world and now is making its way into parts of developing nations so this an awesome niche well research topic and excellent proposal with a great idea behind it good luck guys.

The author has prepared a clear description of the problem he intends to confront and has an idea of a solution that has the potential to tackle this problem.

One thing that can be better worked on in the proposal is how it will meet what the challenge prioritizes. It was clear that the connection point is in the implementation of the Cardano-based Certified Trading Chain (CTC), but until this becomes widespread enough to meet the expectation of the challenge, some steps would need to be taken and it would be interesting to see this clarified as a focus of the proposal.

There is no doubt about the potential for scale. The author's own speech demonstrates this, but for the proposal to be more in line with the challenge and, consequently, for us to see more value delivery to the community, it would be recommended to see a proposal designed to encourage adoption, not only in the implementation of the technology.

Nowadays, tokenized assets are considered even more nascent than cryptocurrencies. However, the advantage of the tokenization of real estate is a huge opportunity for small investors to break down investment barriers and open up new markets. And it's remarkable if it runs on Cardano platforms. Typically, we have to trust the third party about our rights over our properties. But if real estate is tokenized, time-consuming and inefficient processes through intermediaries become overdated, as blockchain is based on the peer-to-peer principle. With it in mind, the trust happens between two contractual partners and guarantees a secure process thanks to blockchain technology. I am so excited and expect this project. The proposer mentioned that foreseeable risks relating to law, old perception, etc would prevent their project from hitting success. It would be good if the author could suggest some solutions so that the community can assess that risk.

The "tokenization of real estate" proposal addresses the challenge Grow Africa, Grow Cardano by real estate tokenization (token to replace real estate certificates). The proposal solution could increase transparency, automation and liquidity. Despite a slight language barrier in translation of this proposal, the proposer has raised a few good examples of how tokenization can also be used for portfolio diversification of investors and property owners. The team is also realistic in listing down the main risks of delivering the project successfully ie. internationally aligned regulatory framework and the interpretation of key terms (custody and supervision) etc. Also the current players in the market are also reluctant to embrace the solution not to mention the security and trust issues. Whether the project could be scaled beyond Congo depends on many factors as mentioned. Having said that, the proposal impact could potentially bring Africa to forefront of Cardano adoption.

This proposal offers a classic use case for blockchain tokenization in a real-world use case - which is fractional real estate ownership.

While I partly agree that the proposal is relevant in the Grow Africa, Grow Cardano challenge based on its practical innovation nature as relevant to the DRC, I believe this is a larger opportunity that (if successful) expands beyond Africa and therefore may be equally or more relevant to the Dapps, Products, and Integrations Challenge.

In any case, the proposal does articulate a clear problem/solution fit, including a value to the Cardano ecosystem as well as a fee-based commercial model that requires no additional financing, therefore I could agree that the proposer presented an impactful use case for tackling liquidity/fluctuation problems in the local real estate market with a solution that could easily see a broad uptick in Cardano users upon successful implementation.

The project would be a great value-added to the ecosystem if implemented correctly which is quite a complex task. The project seems to be a bit outside of the scope of the challenge since it doesn't really address an Africa-specific issue or intend to be widely used in Africa. Instead, the project seems to be described as a general solution for the tokenization of real estate. This brings us to the impact part which would be a big global impact and a paradigm shift if implemented correctly. Furthermore, such projects can definitely scale in a limitless manner due to the nature of the market it targets.

We have that the real estate market is in fact one of those that has the greatest potential to enjoy the benefits brought by blockchain technology, since many processes are retrograde and present abusive fees. Allied to this, we have that the project focuses on a place on the African continent, so it is possible to say that the proposal was correctly aligned with the objectives of the challenge. Furthermore, the success of this endeavor would certainly increase the visibility of the Cardano ecosystem. We are just in doubt if the budget being requested is enough to build what is planned, as we will see below.

The implementation plan proposed sounds adequate, however, its breakdown could be more detailed in order to have a better idea of the steps to be covered as well the challenges that could be presented in each phase. /It would also be important to detail how would be the process to reflect the ownership of physical real estate properties into its tokenized representation.

Regarding the budget breakdown, it would also be important to better detail the amount of money to be spent in each specific task and not only on the macro one as it is done.

Additionally, the profile of the people involved with the proposal seems reasonable to the amount of work to be done in such development, which has high ambition to change the market standard for real state negotiation.

Yes I do think with the information given in this proposal their detailed plan presented here might be implemented in that….

  1. They did give a pretty concise timeline of actives from September they begin mapping the city for the real estate tokenization and digitalization,building of website,to issue of certificates to its investors, to the building of their dapp so yes they do have a simple direct thought out plan. 2)Another quality which makes this proposal able to success is its team I think its got experience devs and they even talked about train their teams and investors alike so that's good for a team who wishes to thrive, deliver excellent results .

  2. Also their budget outline gives clear picture of what they wish to archive and with precise details of who will be involve,what they will be doing and cost of it so it makes the picture of success very and easy to audit with precise details if the should be delays in deliver where exactly it is coming from.Awesome work best of luck on your work.

The author clearly indicated who will be the members involved in the proposal, as well as references about their experiences. Based on the information provided, the project has a qualified and multidisciplinary team.

Regarding the budget of the proposal, there is a big difference between the amount initially requested and the amounts assigned for each stage of the project. This leads to the belief that the requested budget would cover the execution part of the project.

As for the roadmap, the author indicated milestones he intends to reach in the coming months. An improvement in this case would be to detail the composition of each stage with its activities and people involved. This would help in understanding the feasibility of executing the proposal and monitoring progress.

As for the risks, the author contextualized the scenario that could lead to the risks of the proposal, but did not indicate how he intends to mitigate such risks. In a way, technology adoption is the goal at hand and not just the enabler.

The project has only 1 phase to deploy, it lasts for about 6 months. The task was outlined shortly, clearly and understandable. However, it has not shown the solution that can solve the significant risk related to difficulties with legislation regarding crypto real estate transactions, in the current form of the proposal, there is no detailed plan on how it's solved. The budget breakdown is confusing due to general listing, not detailed, and it causes us hard to check and control. As given experiences, the team seems to be experts in technology fields as a developer and teachers but does not show the ability or background in real estate, so it's not enough effort to convince the trust in the community. Though this is a tech project, deep insight into real estate in actual life is necessary to make a project more practical and successful.

The team is comprised of 3 individuals with strong technical capability. From their detailed timeline, they intend to map the real estate in the city of Goma, create the issue certificates and then generate the tokens along with validation tools. The project is highly feasible as it centers on the tokenization part of the business. However, the detailed budget breakdown doesn't list the number of working hours and the rate per hour. The real estate catalog will cost up to $60,000 but has no breakdown how this figure comes from. The proposal will improve significantly if the budget breakdown is more straightforward. For the tools and equipment part, the team should specify why they need 10 tablets for real estate registration. Also they haven't mentioned any team members with prior background in property sales, management or any capacity related to property. This casts some doubt if they are experienced enough to tackle the said mission. However, feasibility score just reflects their ability to complete project technically as per milestones and expect them to adapt/troubleshoot any issues that occur during their deliverables. The project is expected to be financially sustainable enough not to come back for future funding rounds.

The proposal presents a realistic case in terms of team relevancy, detailed plan and milestones, as well as timeline for delivery - including a parallel effort to map Goma to identify real estate.

I'm not sure if by accident or by miscommunication of currency that it appears the $41k USD budget requested falls short of the estimated $95k USD requirement for production, but there were no clear comments regarding supplementary funds and the proposer also stated that this was a new proposal that would also require no subsequent funding.

I'm also maintaining a neutral position on feasibility because the author touches on regulatory risks only by commenting on international frameworks. However, it is my perception that successful implementation of this kind of transformation in the local real estate market will require a strong buy-in from local government/regulators in order to understand, recognize, and provide enforceability for tokenized assets within its borders.

The proposal does briefly mention laws regarding transaction costs in the real estate market, but not enough information is provide to indicate that the proposer has a strong grasp of the resources required to overcome the legal barriers that they will surely face in this kind of total transformation of the real estate market.

Although the team seems to be a pretty able one with a wide-ranging expertise in the IT and computer science industry. It is still a small team to tackle such a big endeavor. Furthermore, the legal aspect of the matter and the lack of legal framework makes it even harder to make the tokenization of real estate happen currently. From the team's timeline, it is hard to judge what will be done when since there is some plan to onboard individuals but no design of MVP is provided for the product which is odd. Finally, the risk related to the project like the legal aspect of it is mentioned but not really discussed or tackled by the team.

As mentioned before, we were in doubt if the budget being requested would be enough to build such a wide tool. And when we look at the detailing of the budget, we see that the sum of all expenses is actually exceeding that amount initially being requested. Furthermore, taking into account the complexity that the project will involve, it seems that the actions described in the timeline are not detailed enough, so unfortunately we can't have much confidence in their feasibility. For a project with these proportions, it would be nice to include additional illustrative materials to better understand the distribution of tasks. As for the team behind the proposal, we see that the professionals have experience in areas that are interesting for the project, such as software development. However, as we are talking about the real estate market, it would be interesting to have people with legal knowledge on the team.

It was not described what will be measured to track the project's progress, neither how to measure it. This is a proposal that has a good potential; however, it is important to model ways to proper measure its advance. Maybe, to measure the level of awareness about real estate tokenization among such market, also monitoring the growth of such indicator, which could lead to a warmer market to absorb the solution it is being proposed. Another, idea would be mapping the real estate properties and monitor its number against the ones inserted into the system to be created. And finally, monitor the number transactions made together with its growth overtime.

Yes will the information provided in this proposal I do think the is sufficient course to say it might be able to be audited in that …

  1. first and foremost they talked about creating website and also creating dapp which will onboard users who will need wallets to operate on the network. This can be use as a key metric indicator for auditing their progress on the proposal.

  2. Further more they gave another key audit metric to be use, like creating a cardano certificate system I think its call Certificate Trading chain short form (CTC) which will use for the tokenization and initialization of the real estate market as articulated in this proposal

3)And I think one other audit metrics was the economic sustainable metric which was the generation of fees through validation and resale of DIDs, and also a technical standard support pilot program to study and make improvement on control.

  1. they talked about creating a dapp which will be use to scale the business and onboard more people. Good luck

The author has not established how the project audit process should take place. Instead of guidelines to guide the community on how to monitor the progress of the project, the author restricted himself to saying that the world is moving towards digitization.

In addition, the document lacks the definition of indicators. While there is a defined vision of success, this information is essential for an effective audit process.

Finally, it is worth noting that the proposal seems to have good potential to tackle the problem presented. The point of attention, in fact, would be to ensure greater correlation with the challenge of this fund 9.

As I mentioned in the Feasibility section, the budget breakdown is an extremely general listing, so it is insufficient to track and audit the proposal's progress. The auditability metrics and KPIs presented in the proposal are not detailed enough to describe what the community would do to measure the progress because the author talks about the transitions from physical documents to digital tokens. But it's difficult for us to know what and how the project's success is. With it in mind, I recommend the proposer include a detailed and prominent description.

The team has established KPIs to monitor project success clearly ie. Cardano-based certified trading chain (CTC) certification system for tokenization of real estate in the DRC, technical method & documentation and the onboarding users through DApp. They could explain more for the validation and resale of DIDs as DID is mentioned first time in the auditability section. The project is auditable by checking if these mentioned checklists as project success are being present. The roadmap and milestones are sufficient to evaluate the success of project between September - March. However, the team has to be careful when it comes to December - January part that they intend to give the possibility to public to generate tokens out of their real estate (if any regulatory obstacles and if so, how the project could steer forward if not being allowed to do so).

The author's answer to the auditability question about how they will measure and track progress is a restatement of the conceptual impact of tokenization on the real estate investment market - perhaps a misunderstanding of what was asked of them in that section. However, from the information provided in team profiles as well as proposal specs, it is clear that the team has a demonstrated history of open source work on GitHub, and very clearly plan to deliver early phase real estate survey work in the form of a public website, followed by technical work to onboard users on a custom Dapp.

I can agree that the proposer presents a clear vision for what success looks like in this proposal, even-though they may lack understanding of the auditability metrics that are expected of them. I could more strongly support auditability if there was a stated intention to publish updates, either in an open source repository, or in terms of an ongoing achievement list on their website.

It is very hard for the community to audit or track such a project, especially with such broad goals and the exact solutions specified, and also the lack of clear metrics that the community would rely on. Furthermore, the roadmap seems to be still not mature enough to reflect clear planning for the project. Some delivery dates are mentioned in a timeline matter but they don't entail the whole process to make this project work fully.

Regarding the perception of success of the proposal, we have that the desired objectives are consistent with the ideas that were developed. However, we noticed that few ways were indicated for us to follow the progress of the project. It would be interesting to establish some parameters to help us understand the gradual progress of development. In this aspect, the use of some development methodology such as Agile could have been indicated, as well as the possible duration of sprints.
