On Thursday, August 27, 2020 the Chicago Blockchain Real Estate Collective hosted its sixth informational meeting on Security Tokens and Token Assetization with guest speaker Jamie H. Finn. Jamie gave an excellent history of stocks, bonds and securities trading and then demonstrated why blockchain based Digital Assets are superior to the existing state of the industry.  The CBREC is sponsored by Liberty Real Estate Fund.

We want to thank Jamie Finn for sharing his knowledge with the Chicago Blockchain Real Estate Collective Meetup audience. It is an exceptional representation of existing markets and why digital assets are better! Check out the replay where Jamie shows how easy it is to make a trade and the future benefits of real estate tokenization.
