Your First Captivating Topic of the Week

🏨 El Salvador Tokenizes Debt: Bitfinex Securities & Hampton by Hilton Hotel

Bitfinex Securities is back with another offering! Known for their involvement with the Blockstream Mining Note (BMN) and most recently the ALTERNATIVE (ALT2612) debt token, the firm is now working with El Salvador to launch a debt token for a Hampton by Hilton Hotel to be located at their international airport, Monseñor Arnulfo Romero y Galdámez International Airport of El Salvador.

Bitfinex Securities El Salvador S.A. de C.V is El Salvador’s first licensed digital asset provider and they’re working with Inversiones Laguardia S.A. de C.V. to issue this token ($HILSV) in hopes of raising $6.25M. Of course since it’s a debt token it comes with a maturity of 5 years and a coupon of 10%.

The construction project entails the development of a 4,484 square metres facility across five levels, with 80 rooms, five commercial spaces, and other hotel amenities including a swimming pool, restaurants, gym, gardens, and multipurpose rooms.

This speaks volumes toward El Salvador’s forward-thinking approach to blockchain after having accepted Bitcoin as legal tender. On Bitfinex’s side, like the BMN token, HILSV will be on the Liquid network via Blockstream AMP. This offering will provide an estimated 1,000 jobs during the construction phase and up to 5,000 direct and indirect jobs during it’s operational phase.

Starting in 28 days, HILSV has a minimum investment of $1,000 but for greater amounts the issuer is providing perks such as free night stays at the hotel depending on the investment size, up to All-year-round free stay during the life of the bond (5 years) for the right amount 😉.

And what interesting timing it is… HILSV is expected to trade against both USD and USDT (tether). As you can see above, the Tether CEO announced yesterday that Tether will be supporting RWA tokenization soon. Note: Paolo Ardoino is both the Tether CEO and the Bitfinex CTO… I’m curious to see how this close relationship could evolve to further collaboration/ use cases and benefits for investors.

Your Second Captivating Topic of the Week

🍷 On-Chain Wine: GrtWines Marketplace

To pair well with a hotel investment (not financial advice) we have a web3 marketplace coming out of Hong Kong!

Back in January we covered the Wine Capital Wine Fund on Oasis Pro which leverages a fund structure for investing in this asset. GrtWines has a different approach where “seasoned connoisseurs and newcomers” can collect, trade, and store fine wines with asset backed tokens.

Until redeemed and delivered, wines are sourced directly from and stored in optimal condition at renowned wineries and trusted partners such as CVBG, an iconic Bordeaux negociant, ensuring the utmost quality and provenance, and an attractive option for both wine enthusiasts and investment-savvy individuals to diversify their portfolios.

GrtWines via Press Release

"The Jefferson Collection" will be launching tomorrow, April 16th, with 21 wine-backed tokens. This collection will be a tribute to US founding father Thomas Jefferson. A fine wine connoisseur, Jefferson is recorded to have had an affinity towards Château Haut-Brion, Château Lafite Rothschild and Château Margaux.

As for traction, GrtWines released its inaugural collection "100 Magnums", featuring iconic Bordeaux wines back in January which sold out in 4 days - the first investment being made within 54 seconds of the launch! This speaks to the interest in this appreciating asset and the work GrtWines has put in to attract the right investors.

These NFTs each come with an assortment of wines they represent which. Browsing through the collection, we see NFTs available for as low as $585 (The Founding Father) and as high as $8,372 (The Presidential Party) at the time of writing. Investors have the option of participating via crypto or credit card, just connect your wallet!

Don’t want to redeem the NFT for the wine? Feel free to sell it (hopefully at a profit) via their marketplace!
