Joey Jones mans the revenue and compliance throttles for curveblock.io, and we caught up with him on a Friday afternoon in his office; he had some insightful observations about regulation, investing in tokenization as it relates to real estate, and how best to learn about the phenomena which is blockchain and some real case uses.
The explosion in blockchain-related projects is on the rise, and we thought it important to reach out to companies who are in the mix. Andrew Carnegie, a billionaire industrialist, stated, “Ninety percent of all millionaires become so through owning real estate. More money has been made in real estate than in all industrial investments combined. The wise young man or wage earner of today invests his money in real estate.” CurveBlock has been introduced as a way to give greater access to this exceedingly large and continually growing asset class.
CurveBlock, a real estate development company that uses blockchain and security tokens to share profits with investors, and back in March of 2019 announced the first security token company in the UK to be accepted into a commercial bank accelerator program.
We spoke with Joey about marketing to US investors, and he said, “ We are looking to have operations in the US, and specifically we are looking at Wyoming, we are also looking at Bermuda and the Jersey Channel Isles, these are places where the regulatory imprint is similar to what regulators are looking for, so we want to keep things simple “.
Over the years, real estate developments have remained the largest and most profitable asset class across the globe, with a 2016 report by research outfit Savills putting the economic value at $217 trillion. CurveBlock is a platform that uses blockchain technology to enable people to invest in property development projects in return for a share of the profit.
CurveBlock has a team with 117+ years of combined construction and development experience as well as 30+ years of executive business experience. The company meets 7 out of 17 of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. Details are included in the whitepaper that is downloadable on the CurveBlock website.
