BIG’s cryptocurrency risk-scoring service will enable Reitium to:
reduce the platform’s risk exposure related to cryptocurrencies;
increase confidence in meeting regulatory compliance;
increase security through Anti-Money laundering (AML) efforts;
deliver transparency regarding the legitimacy of transactions;
create a deterrence against criminal elements that could engage in illicit activity; and,
provide assurance to their customers that measures are in place to strongly curtail illicit transactions or reduce the amount of illicit funds that would have otherwise transacted.
Reitium is a global, asset-backed, compliant and secure real estate investment token, wallet and marketplace platform. Reitium, Real Estate For EveryoneTM, leverages crowd investing to allow anyone the opportunity to invest in real estate at a fraction of the buy-in required when compared to investing in property on their own. Using blockchain and smart contracts, Reitium reduces the legal and accounting costs of facilitating global real estate transactions while increasing the security and trust for all parties involved.
“We’re excited to add Reitium to our growing list of partners,” said BIG CEO, Lance Morginn. “Reitium represents another innovative way that blockchain and cryptocurrency technologies are becoming mainstream and improving people’s lives. This partnership is another example of how BitRank VerifiedTM can be easily integrated into a wide range of cryptocurrency platforms through our robust API. While the individual applications might differ, there’s a growing need for AML (Anti-Money Laundering) and transaction risk-scoring whenever cryptocurrencies are involved. We look forward to helping the team at Reitium create a world where everyone has a chance to create wealth through real estate investing while utilizing cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.”
Reitium’s CEO, Thomas Park, commented: “Our mission is to become the worldwide standard protocol and cryptocurrency for global real estate investing and unlock the trillions of dollars of sleeping capital. But to make that possible, investors must be able to trust the process and feel confident when using our platform. That’s why we chose to partner with BIG and their BitRank VerifiedTM service. As far as we’re concerned, BitRank VerifiedTM is the premiumoption for helping us give our customers the safety and security they deserve when they invest in a cryptocurrency-based system.”
