by Lion Thongchat

  • Valued at £140 million, tokenisation offers investors profit share in Building 4 of Upper Riverside Development
  • Tokenisation powers Knight Dragon’s reputation as Web3, blockchain property pioneer

United Kingdom-based Knight Dragon Investments Limited (“Knight Dragon”) (www.knightdragon.com), via its subsidiary KD Tokens Limited (“KD Tokens”), made an announced Central London’s first property tokenization project with an anticipated market valuation of £140 million.  

Knight Dragon has been tokenized the economic interests inside the 191-unit Building 4, Upper Riverside Development which is at the center of the corporation’s ten million square foot iconic Greenwich Peninsula development (www.greenwichpeninsula.co.uk).

KD Tokens has minted the tokens (“KDB4 Tokens”) and holders of KDB4 Tokens will share 80% of the gross profit generated from this prime Central London real-estate development. A portion of the profit generated from Greenwich Peninsula Building 4 will be send to each holder of KDB4 Tokens.

The asset-backed KDB4 Tokens were created under the supervision of Web3 technical consultant Atom 8 Limited (“Atom 8”) (www.atom8-tech.com), a  wholly owned subsidiary of Tykhe Capital Group Limited  (www.tykhecapital.com) in accordance with a legal and financial structure designed by global law firm Baker McKenzie (www.bakermckenzie.com) and Deloitte (www.deloitte.com) and will be regulated as securities. 

Speaking in Hong Kong, Sammy Lee, Founder and Vice Chairman, Knight Dragon, said today, “At a corporate level, Knight Dragon has just revolutionised the entire European property market and will now move to do so internationally. At an individual level, for a relatively modest investment, individuals can own a piece of Central London real estate profit. In the same way an asset can be securitised by dividing it into shares, tokenisation allows an asset to be divided into individual tokens. The tokens represent a specific share of an underlying asset. In this case, ownership of KDB4 Tokens will represent a fractionalised interest in a contractual right to share in the gross profit of Building 4. Building tokenisation is set to revolutionise the global property industry and we are pleased to be a leader in this revolution. Pioneering in property is central to Knight Dragon’s DNA. We are entrepreneurial, creative-spirited makers of places who bring new ideas and set new standards for urban living. Being the first company to tokenise an entire building in Central London fits exactly with our bold vision for the global property industry.”

Ken Lo, Director, Atom 8 said in Hong Kong today, “This tokenisation project represents investment democratisation, bridging opportunities that were traditionally out of reach for many investors, such as Central London property. The Knight Dragon Building 4 token, and the many which will follow, represent an exciting new asset class in the Web3 era. We are delighted to have played a role in this game-changer with Knight Dragon, from advising on web3 technology initiatives to providing custody solution to safeguard the tokens.”

Joy Lam, virtual asset specialist at Baker McKenzie who is advising Knight Dragon, said in Hong Kong today, “The Knight Dragon building tokenisation is a ground-breaking transaction that transforms a traditionally illiquid asset into an efficient and transparent investment product accessible to a broad base of investors. We are pleased to be advising on the structure and offer of these blockchain native digital tokens that represent a fractionalised interest in the economics of prime real estate in Central London. This innovative transaction clearly demonstrates how blockchain technology can be harnessed by future-oriented asset owners.”

Robert Lui, Hong Kong Digital Asset Leader at Deloitte, stated, “Real estate tokenisation could become a new key to unlock value from property which is one of the largest assets in today’s private market. It has the potential to become a primary new funding mechanism in addition to existing current capital market solutions.”

“We are constantly looking for new ways to innovate, always challenging the status quo and staying true to Knight Dragon’s entrepreneurial and creative spirit,” said Richard Margree, CEO of Knight Dragon in London today. “The world is seeing a blockchain revolution and is preparing for the immense changes and benefits which will be driven by Web3. Knight Dragon will be one of just a few global real-estate developers bringing a new source of value to investors by offering fractionalised economic rights, in this case via fractionalised profit share, through tokenisation. Tokenisation also potentially solves real estate’s largest problem: asset liquidity. Traditionally, multiple parties are involved in legal transfer of property. Tokenisation eliminates the requirement for any third-party involvement, allowing ownership to be transferred directly from investor to investor.”
