Xinyuan Innovating with Blockchain
Xinyuan has been among the pioneering real estate companies to invest in blockchain in China. In 2015, Xinyuan invested in Beijing Rchain to scrutinize blockchain’s underlying technology, with the primary emphasis placed on the BAAS (Blockchain As A Service) platform.
Through X-Bolts blockchain, Xinyuan has developed suitable applications for the real estate sector, such as Conbow and Golden Bricks.
Most recently, Xinyuan Group launched UPRETS, a real estate digitalization platform empowering fractional real estate investment, helping accelerate formatting a regulated online marketplace where real estate ownership is digitalized and fragmented into small shares and traded all over the world. It is the first time such a platform was developed by a listed real estate company in which the company is pioneering in the field.
