In an increasingly digitized financial context, the tokenization of real-world assets, known as Real World's Assets (RWA), has emerged as a revolution in the field of investment.

However, this new paradigm has generated confusion among those who are taking their first steps in this area. Reental positions itself as an innovative platform that seeks to demystify RWA tokenization and provide clarity and transparency to new investors.

Understanding the Tokenization of Real World's Assets

The tokenization of Real World's Assets (RWA) involves the transformation of real-world assets, such as real estate, works of art or natural resources, into digital tokens. These tokens represent a stake in the underlying asset and are stored on a blockchain, ensuring their security and traceability

A token, in this context, is a digital partition of a real-world asset. It works like a token that can be easily transferred, exchanged and used as a representation of the value of an asset. Blockchain technology, which uses cryptography to secure transactions and record them in a decentralized manner, is fundamental to this process.

The tokenization of RWA democratizes access to investment in real-world assets by allowing investors to participate with modest amounts of capital and without traditional barriers to entry. This innovation has opened up new investment opportunities in markets that were previously reserved for large institutional investors.

So much so, that large entities such as Goldman Sachs, one of the leaders of the largest investment and securities banking groups in the world, or like BlackRock, an asset management giant, enter the asset tokenization circuit with strategic investments in asset tokenization.

How are tokens related to holders' rights

As we were already analyzing, the asset tokenization process involves converting the value of a real asset into digital tokens that represent a stake in it. These tokens are sold on the market at a specific price, allowing investors to acquire a fraction.

Many will ask how the goal of linking these assets into digital tokens is achieved. The tokenization of real-world assets requires establishing a strong legal structure that defines property rights and ensures that the tokenization process complies with all regulations and legal requirements. The challenge will always be the lack of clear regulation in some countries, which can hinder the widespread adoption of asset tokenization. That is why, for the time being, it is adopted to do it with tools, articulating it with specific contracts.

At Reental, as leaders in real estate tokenization, we find frequently asked questions about the legality and rights of investors in this process. The tokenization of real estate ensures that investors have rights to the properties represented by the tokens, including the right to receive rental income and to participate in the profits generated by the property.

This direct link between tokens and underlying assets is achieved through protocols such as Security Tokens (STOs), which ensure the transparency and integrity of transactions.

One of the main obstacles is that the registered owner of the property is not always the person who has purchased a token, which poses challenges in cases of bankruptcy of the owning company. Despite the limitations imposed by the legal framework in the real estate sector, tokenization offers innovative opportunities. In Spain, for example, tokenization is articulated through participatory loans for the purchase of real estate or shares in companies dedicated to the acquisition of real estate, and even the right to purchase a home in the future. This democratizes access to real estate investments that were previously reserved for a few.

In short, a tokenized property represents an investment in a specific project, materialized in a token. Investors hold tokens that represent their share of the investment in the property, obtaining proportional benefits such as rental income and capital gain after the sale. This innovative form of investment offers transparency, security and accessibility, positioning Reental as a prominent option in the tokenized real estate investment market.

Challenges and Opportunities in RWA Tokenization

The tokenization of Real World's Assets (RWA) faces significant regulatory and technical challenges, particularly in jurisdictions such as Spain. Current regulation may restrict the full adoption of real-world asset tokenization by not fully recognizing tokens as valid forms of ownership. However, within this space, innovative tools emerge.

The tokenization of participatory loans linked to the acquisition of real estate, for example, offers a legal and secure alternative for investors seeking to benefit from rental income and the appreciation of the value of real estate.

Today, it's still possible to ride this wave of opportunities around RWA. With Reental, you have the opportunity to participate in any of our tokenized opportunities and take advantage of their benefits. As recently as last week, BlackRock introduced its BlackRock USD Institutional Digital Liquidity Fund (BUIDL), a money market fund designed to maintain a stable value of 1 dollar. In just one week, BUIDL has attracted $245 million in assets from seven investors.
