Overview of EstateDAO - Revolutionizing Vacation Home Investment

The founding team of EstateDAO has been working on the project in the stealth mode for the last 2 years, building under the wraps, before we launched our platform in February 2024 (EstateDAO website).

EstateDAO is built completely on the IC blockchain with both the front-end and back-end hosted on-chain. The Technical Architecture of the EstateDAO outlines how the project is structured from a technology standpoint, while also providing additional information around the same.

The founding team backing the project has been outlined in the Whitepaper and comprises of the following people:

The team members have a very strong background in crypto, real estate investing and financing. They bring complimentary skills to the project, their respective experience and their knowledge of the crypto space to the project, contributing to the innovation and adaptability of the project. Also, we would be creating a board of advisors comprising of highly experienced and capable real-estate executives, enabling us to take advantage of their knowledge and experience in the field.

The initial catchment area for the project would be Spain, as a couple of our founders have lived and invested in real estate in the country for over a decade.
