Metropoly presale continues to attract investors, funds raised cross $800k

The crypto community often highlights the elimination of intermediaries, associated expenses and delays as a way to disrupt different industries. Real estate, being one of the oldest and most complicated industries with its bureaucratic procedures and paperwork, is frequently mentioned as an ideal sector for transformation. Metropoly, an NFT project, aims to tackle the obstacles of the real estate industry by utilising digital technology. This article examines the operations of Metropoly and the potential advantages for users, such as opportunities for generating passive income. The global real estate market had a value of $6.8 trillion in 2021, experiencing a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.9%. This growth trend is expected to continue, making the industry an attractive investment opportunity. In the US, the market was valued at $3.69 trillion in 2021, and it is projected to expand at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2022 to 2030. Presently, the house-to-income ratio in the US stands at 7.71, surpassing the ratios observed during the 2008 housing bubble and the pre-2000 ratio of approximately 4.4. To avoid pricing out significant segments of the population from the housing market, this trend needs to be reversed.

In the past few decades, real estate investment has remained attractive, but numerous challenges have emerged. One significant challenge is the increasing financial and bureaucratic hurdles to entry, which make it challenging for individual investors to enjoy the advantages of real estate ownership, such as security and opportunities for passive income. Undoubtedly, the real estate market needs transformation, and blockchain technology has the potential to eliminate the entry barriers that have impeded progress. Blockchain is among the most discussed cryptocurrency applications, and Metropoly is at the forefront of this revolution.
