A Vast Network of Marketplaces

At the core, Blocksquare's vision is the creation of a vast network of marketplaces operated by third-party Certified Partners. These marketplaces connect investors to regional real estate opportunities, democratizing access to real estate investments. Marketplace Pools provide a pathway for both marketplace operators and community members to engage and grow within the ecosystem.

How Marketplace Pools Work

Marketplace Pools offer a streamlined process for garnering community support and funding. Prospective operators can present their marketplace ideas to the BST community, detailing their business plans and key performance indicators. If the community sees potential, they can vote to initiate a marketplace pool campaign. Successful campaigns begin with a minimum deposit of 500 sBST, aiming to reach 100,000 sBST to unlock full community support and enhanced APY incentives. Community members who hold sBST tokens can actively participate in these marketplace pools by pledging their tokens to projects they believe in.

This not only provides crucial support for new marketplaces but also offers potential rewards. As these marketplaces grow and achieve their targets, the pool's performance metrics improve, resulting in higher APY for the community's pledged sBST. This competitive aspect ensures that community members choose projects wisely, supporting those with the highest potential for success.

Key Features of Marketplace Pools

Flexible Contribution Limits: Ensuring fair participation, Marketplace Pools have flexible contribution limits allowing more community members to get involved without significant barriers.

Dual-Lock Mechanism for Withdrawals: This system secures both community and Certified Partner investments, fostering long-term commitment to the pool's success.

Benefits for Community Members

For community members, the benefits of participating in Marketplace Pools are substantial

Higher APY Rewards: By pledging sBST to successful marketplace pools, community members can earn higher APY rewards as these projects meet their growth targets.

Supporting Innovative Ideas: Members can support and back innovative marketplace ideas that align with their investment strategies and interests. Decentralized Engagement: Marketplace Pools promote a decentralized and democratized ecosystem, allowing more voices to influence the success of new projects.

Benefits for Marketplace Operators

For marketplace operators, Marketplace Pools provide a streamlined path to success.

Community Support and Funding: Operators can present their marketplace ideas to the community, securing the necessary support and funding to launch and grow their platforms.

Clear Goal Setting and Accountability: Certified Partners set clear goals to achieve within a target time period (e.g., 12 months), such as increasing user registrations, tokenizing assets, or distributing property revenues.

They demonstrate their commitment by depositing a significant stake as collateral. If these goals are not met, the collateral can be liquidated, ensuring accountability and dedication.

Exploration of Marketplace Projects

Community members can explore various marketplace projects and pledge their support. Once a project reaches the necessary support threshold, their investments are locked in, ensuring stability and success. This lock period is designed to encourage quick responses from marketplace operators and maintain healthy pool dynamics.

A Vibrant, Collaborative Ecosystem

Oceanpoint v0.5 is all about creating a vibrant, collaborative ecosystem where both marketplace operators and community members can thrive and connect. By linking innovative real estate projects with enthusiastic backers, we are driving the future of tokenized real estate and fostering a robust, community-driven environment.
