Introducing RealT: Tokenizing Real Estate on Ethereum
In order to tokenize U.S. real estate properties, RealToken LLC, or ?RealT? was established. ?RealT? is a series LLC, a unique form of an LLC in which allows for unlimited segregation of membership interests, assets, and operations into independent series. Each series of the series LLC is treated as a separate entity. Ownership of the various Series is tokenized to unique ERC20 tokens, or RealTokens, on the Ethereum blockchain, each of which represents one share in the Series, and thus in the real estate property owned by the Series. Because the sole purpose of the LLC Series is to own one single property, the LLC can be abstracted away; ownership of the RealTokens is effectively ownership of the property.

Elon Musk Wants to Know What Should be Developed on Ethereum
Elon Musk has gone crypto twitter again, but this time a joke may have turned a bit more serious after his ethereum tweet was met with an invitation to Devcon by Vitalik Buterin, ethereum?s inventor. It is what follows that interests this article because it?s a very good question: What should be developed on Ethereum? Buterin replied with a long list of things and we might as well quote it in full: Fitting all that in a few tweets is quite something with much of it interesting, like HurricaneGuard by Etherisc. They?ve now apparently expanded from FlightDelay to automatically pay if wind speeds of 30 miles per hour are recorded. Quite something.

A french financial services company has just issued more than $110 million worth of bonds in the form of a security token on the public Ethereum blockchain.
Societe Generale Group is a French financial services company which has just issued more than $110 million worth of bonds in the form of a security token on the public Ethereum blockchain. It was announced today that the subsidiary dubbed Societe Generale SFH used the OFH token (obligations de financement de l?habitat, or home financing obligations in English) in order to represent 100 million euros of covered bonds, a type of security that is backed by specific assets but remain on the issuer?s balance sheet. Even so, according to a report published by the bond rating agency Moody?s Investors Service earlier this week suggests that Societe Generale was the only investor. This would mean that the company issued the securities to itself and no outside buyers were involved.

Bull market approaches as Ethereum coils up in preparation for major upside move
Keep up to date with all the latest news from Coin Rivet. By signing up, you agree to our terms & conditions and privacy policy Cryptocurrency?s second-largest coin in terms of market cap ? Ethereum ? looks like it may topple yearly highs despite falling 6% overnight. Following an extended rally from $140 at the start of April, Ethereum tested the daily 200 exponential moving average (EMA) before consolidating between the $160 level of support and the $181 level of resistance. In spite of the recent drop to $165, Ethereum looks to be coiling up for a fairly dramatic move to the upside. Bitcoin produced an Easter Sunday rally to lift itself above $5,350 before stalling just short of $5,700, but much like in 2017, numerous altcoins fell against their BTC trading pair.
