FreeBnk, the fintech platform offering affordable financial services for crypto investors, launches its tokenized RWA (real-world asset) platform to enable its clients to invest in real estate through fractionalized ownership. Through FreeBnk’s app, clients can effortlessly purchase shares of the first property located in Dubai, democratizing real estate investing by eliminating traditional barriers such as complex paperwork, similar to the seamless experience of browsing and investing on Zillow. Investors of FreeBnk’s tokenized RWAs will receive a 15 percent annual return and a 9 percent rental return from their investment.

Tokenized RWAs have exploded in demand within the digital asset ecosystem, drawing interest from both crypto investors and traditional financial institutions. This sector has become one of the largest in DeFi, with DEX volume experiencing substantial growth from $2.3 billion in December 2024 to $3.6 billion by April 2024. Amidst the escalating global cost of living, tokenized RWAs emerge as an alternative and more accessible investment option offering potentially higher returns, democratizing access to market-proof assets. However, the UI and UX continue to be complex and unfriendly for users unfamiliar with these platforms.

With the launch of its new platform, FreeBnk simplifies wealth-building opportunities by offering ownership shares in properties for potentially generating passive income. Now live within its native mobile app, the decentralized application (dApp) removes the complexities of property ownership, enabling investors to readily enter the tokenized RWA sector. The process involves three straightforward steps:

Search properties: Through the FreeBnk app, users will be able to explore properties, filtering by type, ROI, and yield—allowing investors to align their property investments precisely with their financial objectives.
Buy shares: Users will be able to select their desired property and invest any amount in a few, simple steps. FreeBnk helps to bypass traditional real estate processes and manages all aspects of property ownership using smart contracts.
Earn rental income: FreeBnk automatically assigns a property portfolio to its customers, taking care of all real estate management responsibilities. This service includes collecting and depositing rental income directly into the client’s accounts.
Clients ready to capitalize on property appreciation can conveniently sell their shares at any time through FreeBnk’s secondary market. FreeBnk is committed to offering top-quality real estate, already investing over 250,000 AED into its first property. As a hub for innovation and growth, Dubai sets the stage for global expansion with its growing real estate market and investor-friendly environment.

“As we look ahead, we see the potential of tokenized RWAs and the positive ways in which they can revolutionize the real estate market through fractional ownership,” says Yunus Emre Ozkaya, CEO of FreeBnk. “By tokenizing properties, our goal is to empower investors across the globe, showcasing the unique benefits of tokenized RWAs and offering new avenues for investment. Real estate, known for its relative stability, provides a passive income opportunity amidst global economic fluctuations. We aim to cater not only to crypto enthusiasts but also to newcomers seeking alternative investment options.”
