Business OpportunityCurrently i’m dealing with real estate company and developer in Florida, US. The real estate investment return is contracted for 3 years at 15% p.a. (total 45% margin). Each plot of 10,000 sqft land is priced at 30,000 USD. Freehold title issued by the US Official Land Records. Buy-back policy is stated in the contract (with return) if there’s no new buyer. I’m getting 15% upfront upon purchasing the land plus another 5% of commission.

My planning is to develop an ICO platform in Singapore backed by real estate to acquire the lands. Cost for the platform setup is 700,000 USD by progession. I need a start-up fund of 200,000 USD.
