Crypto Valley: Two pioneers open up the global real estate market

  • D¥N -issuer Dynasty acquires stake in tokenization service provider BrickMark
  • Settlement of the investment of CHF 10 million with Dynasty payment tokens
  • Tokenization of real estate worth CHF 1.5 billion planned through BrickMark

SÃO PAULO and ZUG, Switzerland, May 23, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Tokenization pioneers Dynasty Global Investments AG (Dynasty) and BrickMark Group AG (BrickMark), based in Zug/Switzerland, today signed an agreement under which BrickMark will integrate the D¥N payment token issued by Dynasty into its tokenization platform for real estate. In return, Dynasty will acquire a strategic stake in BrickMark. The investment totaling CHF 10 million will be part of the Series A financing of BrickMark and settled mainly with Dynasty’s payment token and cash. The financing is expected to close by the end of June 2024.

This transaction represents a significant step for both companies as part of their growth strategy on the global property markets. The real estate-focused payment token D¥N issued by Dynasty is going to take on a leading role for tokenized real estate transactions in the future. From now on, real estate tokenized through the BrickMark platform can be traded with D¥N without any further effort.

BrickMark is set to tokenize real estate assets worth over CHF 1.5 billion on its platform in the coming months, with CHF 400 million of these assets already sourced from Dynasty’s network. Through its tokenization platform BrickGate, BrickMark is already active in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Luxembourg, Hong Kong, the United Arab Emirates, and across the African continent. The collaboration with Dynasty will significantly extend BrickMark’s reach to the American continent. Dynasty Token holders will have preferred access to any Real Estate Token offering of BrickMark’s platform in the future.

Eduardo Carvalho, CEO and co-founder of Dynasty Global AG, expects the company’s token to establish itself worldwide as a Tether for the property market. “Every cryptocurrency goes through various validation processes. In the case of Bitcoin, this first happened in 2010 when it was accepted for the purchase of two pizzas. For D¥N, the integration into the BrickMark platform is a strategic step that further emphasizes its value.”

For Stephan Rind, CEO and founder of BrickMark Group AG, the integration of D¥N and the participation of Dynasty Global AG marks another significant milestone in the company’s growth strategy. “Thanks to D¥N, we are now in a position to offer a uniform and cost-effective solution for a wide range of real estate transactions worldwide on the basis of a universal and recognized crypto currency, which gives private and institutional investors access to markets that were previously only open to a few.”

Dynasty Global AG is regulated by the Swiss financial market supervisory regime. With a maximum of 21 million tokens issuance, D¥N is currently listed in Brazil via Mercado Bitcoin and with other international exchanges.

Brazil’s Receita Federal Increases Scrutiny on Foreign Cryptocurrency Exchanges

Brazil’s tax authority, Receita Federal, plans to intensify its oversight of foreign cryptocurrency exchanges operating within the country. This move aims to enhance regulation and transparency amid the rising use of digital assets in Latin America’s largest economy.

New Reporting Requirements for International Platforms
Recent reports indicate that Receita Federal will soon issue an order requiring international cryptocurrency platforms, including Binance and Coinbase, to provide detailed operational data and information on their partnerships with local service providers.

Government’s Regulatory Focus
Andrea Chaves, Deputy Secretary of Inspection at the Federal Revenue Service, emphasized the importance of this measure. “It’s crucial for us to understand how they operate here and ensure there’s no illegality,” she stated. The government aims to ensure compliance with tax laws and confirm that services provided to Brazilian customers are fully legal.

Wagner Lima, a risk management coordinator at Receita Federal, underscored the need to review collaborations between foreign exchanges and local service providers. This review ensures compliance with a 2019 regulation that mandates information sharing.

Rise in Crypto Asset Declarations
This decision comes in response to a significant increase in crypto asset declarations by Brazilians. From January to July 2023, Brazilians declared 133.6 billion reais ($24.6 billion) in crypto assets, marking a 36.6% increase from the previous year. Notably, 14.5 billion reais were declared through foreign exchanges, representing a 51.2% growth.

Upcoming Order Details
The forthcoming order will require exchanges to disclose their operational methods and customer service practices in Brazil. However, it will exclude customer-specific data and transactional information to comply with current Brazilian laws.

Future Regulatory Framework
Brazilian authorities are also working on developing a clear framework for digital currencies and their legal status, expected to be introduced by mid-2024. This framework aims to organize both local and foreign exchanges operating within Brazil, ensuring their compliance with local laws and regulatory requirements.

Brazil to Enhance Scrutiny on Foreign Crypto Exchanges

Brazil’s Receita Federal is set to intensify oversight of foreign digital asset exchanges operating within the country, aiming to strengthen regulation and transparency in this rapidly growing sector. The national tax authority plans to collect operational data from platforms such as Binance, Coinbase, and Kraken, despite the absence of a comprehensive regulatory framework for cryptocurrencies in Brazil.

Tightened Oversight on Foreign Crypto Exchanges
As digital asset popularity surges in Brazil, the government is taking steps to understand and regulate the activities of international cryptocurrency exchanges. A mandate, expected to be issued this week, will require these platforms to disclose their operational methodologies and customer service practices within the region. The focus of Brazilian tax authorities is to ensure compliance with local tax laws and anti-money laundering regulations.

Surge in Digital Asset Usage
The decision comes amidst a significant increase in digital asset usage in Brazil, with reported crypto holdings by Brazilians reaching 133.6 billion reais ($24.6 billion) from January to July 2023—a 36.6% increase from the previous year. This heightened scrutiny is vital as the government pushes for greater transparency while still developing a concrete regulatory framework, expected to be proposed by the end of 2024.

Receita Federal to Audit International Crypto Platforms
Andrea Chaves, Deputy Secretary of Inspection at the Receita Federal, emphasized the importance of this initiative. The government aims to ensure that these exchanges comply with tax obligations and do not engage in illegal activities. Additionally, they seek to confirm that services offered to Brazilian customers are fully legal, addressing concerns that some platforms might bypass local regulations, leading to unreported revenue and facilitating illicit financial flows.

Wagner Lima, a risk management coordinator at the Revenue Service, highlighted the need to examine partnerships between foreign exchanges and local service providers. This scrutiny ensures adherence to a 2019 regulation mandating information sharing, crucial for maintaining the integrity of Brazil’s financial systems.

Upcoming Ordinance Requirements
The forthcoming ordinance will require exchanges to provide detailed information about their operations, excluding customer-specific data and transactional details to comply with current Brazilian laws. The 51.2% increase in declared holdings through foreign exchanges from the previous year underscores the growing importance of these platforms in the local market.
