Blockchain startup Konkrete announced it is receiving financial backing from Signum Capital, an investor in blockchain technologies.

Konkrete, which provides a platform for tokenizing real estate assets, is in the midst of raising $3 million. The Melbourne, Australia-based company has $2 million in precommitments with Signum as the lead investor, according to Australia’s Financial Review.

“We are very excited to have the support of Signum Capital,” said Konkrete co-founder Sean Qian in a news release. “We believe that with their support, Konkrete can be a global destination for both issuers and investors in real estate assets.”

The announcement comes amid a flurry of blockchain-related real estate projects worldwide.

Konkrete’s objective is to help fund managers, property developers, homeowners and landlords to raise capital from a global investor network. The company has a special interest in making the housing market in Australia more accessible for first-time buyers. It is a joint venture between the business accelerator Collective Campus, of which Qian is also a co-founder, and Estate Baron, a real estate crowdfunding platform. Moresh Kokane is a co-founder of Konkrete and the founder of Estate Baron.

Singapore-based Signum Capital has provided financial and other support for blockchain projects, including Oasis Labs, Zilliqa, Kyber Network and MultiVac. Read more here.
