We’re proposing to add a real world asset (RWA) ——OST-1 to the Aave protocol allowing investors to gain exposure to crypto-uncorrelated asset types.
This is our proposal to include OST as a collateral asset.
1. Who is the interested party for this collateral application?
UPRETS is providing the digital security issuance technology and framework for bringing real estate assets to MCD. The main contact for the application is Ran Wei (email@example.com) ,David Wei（firstname.lastname@example.org）as well as Wesley Ma(Wesley@uprets.io) of UPRETS.
2. Provide a brief high-level overview of the project, with a focus on the applying collateral token.
OST is asset-based digital securities based on advanced digitalization technology designed for global real estate investors and blockchain enthusiasts. With offices in New York, Dubai and Beijing, entwined with its extensive range of strategic partnerships, the international digitalization platform UPRETS aids in developing the non-fungible tokens to create a legally compliant real estate financial product available for investors with revolutionary spirits. Secondary trading on MERJ Exchange further facilitates KYC/AML, market assurance and trading liquidity. For more information, go to Global Real Estate Digitalization and Trading Platform | Uprets.io.
The Omnilayer & self-owned patented consortium chain Xbolt secures the OST digital securities structure and its compatibility to mainstream public chain and secondary exchanges and enables support payment with FIAT and BUSD. The ownership is issued to investors in a robust, secure and trusted digital securities form to accumulate steady dividends at a steep discount, which there will always be a demand for global real estate investors.
3. Provide a brief history of the project.
OST is the phase I legally compliant digital securities of the Oosten project, corresponding to the limited partnership interest of UPRETS Oosten Fund I LP, a real estate fund company located in Delaware, USA that holds the apartment No.730.
