REALISTO uses the blockchain to disrupt the real-estate investment market. By using crowd-funding strategies based on smart contracts, we will develop a platform that brings efficiency and accessibility to a market that has so far been a closed-shop. We firmly believe pulling real estate onto the block chain will definitely be “the next big thing”. No other industry (safe for finance/currency…) has the potential to benefit as hugely from the transparency digital tech brings. Land offices, transparent ownership of assets, investment–– they all would profit vastly from open and democratic procedures.


We are excited about the openness and transparency the blockchain technology and its smart contracts afford. Our project would not be possible without it. However, for us at REALISTO, the blockchain is but a means to an end. And that is creating value and great ROI for our investors. We have years of experience in the Berlin real-estate market––and with the REALISTO platform we will now put this knowledge to good use by tokenizing only the most profitable assets.

Initiated in 2011, Pindify is the marketplace for creators to organise, publish and capitalise on their art, text, film and music. Producing, publishing and distributing creative content has never been easier. With the help of recording hardware, editing software, the internet and streaming, the majority of produced content is surprisingly professional and well worth paying for.


Creators do not get paid. The market-model of today’s streaming services (Spotify) is far too linear, formal and limited with an outdated payment-structure. On the contrary the market-model of today's social network and it’s services are inflated (Youtube), unstructured (Facebook) and free (Soundcloud). This is why Pindify built the Creator’s Market, to provide a clear pay-rail between creative professionals, labels and their supporters.


Leverage & Swift (Shift)
The digital revolution began with “Hello World”- Napster - Myspace - Youtube - Piratebay - Spotify and Netflix. For over a decade the threats and opportunities for the art, text, film and music industries have shaped how we currently consume creative content. In 1999 before the digital revolution the cost and risk was enormous in producing, publishing and distributing creative content. While today its all about perseverance, viral splash and social butterflies, with little or no cost involved. This emerging trend demands a transparent and organised market, with an effective paysystem. This trend; personified by artist Taylor Swift’s denouncement of Spotify, or by unknown creators making million-dollar revenues on Youtube, or independent films rising on Netflix, is shifting the entire creative content industry once again. Pindify envisioned this trend 4 years ago and will open the "Creators' Market" in September. Global entertainment and media outlook, PWC.

CEO & Founder at Southern Car Audio and Detailers

Ian founded his first company in the late eighties. Ian learnt his first skill in negotiation and was able to secure a 10 year contract to provide cleaning services to the Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix and the Confederation of Australian Motor Sports.

The 1995 Australian Grand Prix (formally the LX EDS Australian Grand Prix) was a Formula One motor race held on 12 November 1995 at the Adelaide Street Circuit, Adelaide. The race, contested over 81 laps, was the seventeenth and final race of the 1995 Formula One season, and the eleventh and last Australian Grand Prix to be held at Adelaide before the event moved to Melbourne the following year.

In a race of attrition, all the front-running cars retired except for the pole-sitting Williams-Renault of Damon Hill. Hill won by two clear laps from the Ligier-Mugen-Honda of Olivier Panis, with Gianni Morbidelli achieving his best-ever F1 result with third in a Footwork-Hart. Of the 23 drivers who started, only eight finished, the lowest number in the 1995 season.

The race had an attendance of 210,000 – an F1 record until 2000, when 250,000 people attended that year's United States Grand Prix at Indianapolis.

As of 8 March 2017 The fastest ever recorded lap of the original 3.780 km (2.349 mi) Grand Prix Circuit was 1:13.371 by triple World Champion Ayrton Senna driving a McLaren MP4/8 Ford during qualifying for the 1993 Australian Grand Prix. However, as this was in qualifying and not a race, it does not count as the lap record.
