About BankEx

BANKEX is developing a new tokenization technology that uses the blockchain technology to offer advanced Proof-of-Asset protocol for the financial markets. By using Smart Contracts, BANKEX may digitize various types of assets like portfolios including real estate, ensures that the asset is validated, turns it into a token, and places it on the market for trading. Liquidity in form of cryptocurrencies or even fiat money is is only a click away from asset owners. It provides investors the access to capital and guarantee clear cashflow.

BANKEX is supported by 10 banks and top tech companies, including the Microsoft Corporation. BANKEX is ranked in Top- 50 FinTech startups of the world.

What is the aset tokenization?
Tokenization is the process of protecting sensitive data by replacing it with an algorithmically generated number called a token, much like a website domain is a representation of an IP address on the internet, a token is a representation of information on the blockchain. By processing this information BANKEX PoA can perform actions that would usually require a third party for verification. Simply put - tokenization of assets is basically the process of passing on the rights to an asset into the blockchain and making it globally available. BANKEX tokens carry both functions : utility and security, while serving as a gateway to the platform they are also backed with the real world assets.

Problems asset tokenization solves

  • Numerous asset owners - this creates barriers to effective communication, distrust and making it harder to reach common ground.
  • High dispersion of assets - this results in blurred understanding of real cash flow that is generated by every single asset.
  • Long period of launching projects to achieve desirable liquidity.
  • Inability to enter the financial markets to attract sufficient investments for non-public companies.
  • Complicated process of keeping track of the lifecycle of an asset before sustainable cashflow reveals.
  • High legal and accounting expenditures caused by asset transfers if early investors sell their assets at peak profitability.
  • Complexity of asset withdrawal when the terms of contract are not fulfilled for any reason."

BankEx Reviews

Currently trending in the blockchain world is the tokenization of different real-world assets. Services provided by Bankex will allow users to give up the rights to their assets in exchange for tokens. We've seen other ICO's such as LAToken aim for the same space but their ICO has failed all the investors who succumbed to the hype. For a complete tokenization of real world assets, several parties must be aligned. The buyer, the seller, and all the contracted legal implications are reliant on the honest human. Bankex' endeavour fails to give peace of mind to the true utility of their applications. A human middle man could facilitate the process for all parties, but such interactions are ill-refined in their process. Bankex describes a digital framework to handle assets, but banks are not just services, there is a human KYC process which prevents the majority of fraud. Now the question is - Will a major bank or business use this digital framework to handle their assets? We don't see it happening anytime soon. There is little evidence to support a profitable investment in Bankex' ICO. This is likely why Bankex has opted to throw in a bunch of other technology alongside their flagship product to give the appearance of sustainable development. Feel free to take a trip on the hype train as it could give out decent rewards however, keep in mind that you could be getting off at the bottom of the hill with its obscenely high hard-cap and risky business model.
