Can You Convert Your Crypto Into Real Estate?

The cryptocurrency boom cannot be ignored by anyone at this point. Unless you have escaped to a far-off forest without any phone reception or no access to international media or people for that matter, you already know the numbers we are talking about on a daily basis. It wouldn’t be a wrong theory to say that perhaps the last 6 months have made more millionaires due to the cryptocurrency boom than any other industry has. This is the market gain of cryptocurrencies over the last 3 years. (Dated April 2021)

  • BITCOIN (BTC) – 6,220% Gain
  • ETHEREUM (ETH) – 30,060% Gain
  • RIPPLE (XRP) – 25,717% Gain

That means for every $100 invested into the above cryptocurrencies on 1st January 2017 without selling anything till date, the profit would be $6,220 for BTC investment, $30,060 for ETH investment and $25,717 for XRP investment. These are tremendous and honestly, scary numbers. Although the individuals betting big on these cryptocurrencies during that time were limited, but with an investment of $10,000 into either ETH or XRP at that stage, the profit one would be sitting on right now would be $3,000,000 and $2,500,000 respectively. 

Now that such investments have yielded incredible returns, what do the investors do? Do they continue to hold cryptocurrencies in the hope that they will further rise exponentially in the future or do they aim to liquidate some of their holdings and put them into other asset classes, such as Real Estate or Gold? A healthy mix of the above would probably be the most sought-after option and this is where we, at RiseUp Holding will aim to assist you*. Through a joint-partnership with a cryptocurrency exchange platform, we are now able to accept property investments from the recently formed millionaires from the cryptocurrency boom. The seller will still have the option to receive their proceeds in the form of fiat currency (AED or USD) through the exchange platform, but the buyer will have the comfort of paying directly in their crypto holdings without the need to first liquidate them to convert them into fiat currency. 

The transactions flow can be understood in further details from our team members since there is heavy volatility in these currencies and the price of the transaction needs to be agreed upon in fiat currency, it only takes one transaction to get used to this new and exciting times we are in. Time is of the essence in these transactions and the fee associated with the transaction is relatively low. The transactional currencies are not only limited to BTC, ETH & XRP. There are multiple currencies which can be used for the transactions and buyers have the option to pay in a combination of such currencies. Are you keen to learn more about this?

*KYC is critical when it comes to investing with crypto currencies keeping in line with the AML policies. 

DUBAI TO CUT PROPERTY SERVICE CHARGES THIS YEAR

 

Dubai’s property owners can look forward to paying lower service charges this year, as part of wider efforts to lower the associated costs involved in owning a home in the Emirate.

This is one of the initiatives being rolled out by Dubai Land Department in alliance with Owner Association management companies.

Also, all fines clocked up by property owners for not paying service charges in 2019 and this year are being waived, as reported by ‘Gulf News’ on Monday. Owners will also be eligible to pay off their service charges via installments.

According to Marwan bin Ghalita, CEO of RERA (Real Estate Regulatory Agency), “In these exceptional global circumstances, everyone is expected to show solidarity and cooperation to meet the call of our wise leadership to combat the global pandemic.

“JOP (Jointly Owned Property) management companies and developers seek to show the highest degree of care and understanding of the current situation and the consequences that may result from it that burden people.”
