New tokenized fund on Swarm: Viejo San Juan (VSJ)
Welcome to the Swarm Newsletter for May 14th, 2018.
New investment opportunity takes SWM tokens
Swarm has added a new investment opportunity, and the first that allows you to directly invest your SWM tokens. The new fund is called Viejo San Juan Comunidad Real Estate Fund (VSJ) and holds properties for both redevelopment and current rental income.
Heady renewal is going on in historical Old San Juan (Puerto Rico), making this an exciting real estate market. Old San Juan is arguably the most livable urban neighborhood in America. It offers a bohemian lifestyle in a Caribbean setting and because it is on Puerto Rico, US tax payers don’t have to pay federal taxes. This is definitely an investment opportunity worth exploring. Sign in to your account and check out this new investment opportunity. For photos and real-time discussion with the fund managers, go to Swarm Discussion Forum

Swarm Fund CEO comments on volatility in cryptocurrency markets
Watch ZDNet’s Tonya Hall interview with Swarm Fund CEO Philipp Pieper as they discuss how Swarm connects investors to investments on the blockchain. To the question what needs to change to make cryptocurrency a more solid and reliable source of value, Philipp replies “If you want to professionally trade, you need something that escapes this volatility. You need something that has footing in balance sheets and real assets. That’s why we created security tokens. Those are independent from the hype. We create assets that can bring a significant amount of value and stability to the ecosystem.”
