Exciting SeedInvest Crowdfunding – Real estate tokenization platform RedSwan CRE is raising preferred equity capital on SeedInvest seeking up to $5 million in funding.
The securities are being issued under both Reg CF and Reg D so it is open to both accredited and non-accredited investors. The “tiered preferred equity” or SWIFT or simple weighted incentive for time, means that early investors benefit from a bigger discount. The pre-money valuation of the seed round is $55 million. The Proptech has previously raised over one million dollars in earlier seed rounds

Malkin has worked in tech and has several exits under his belt. Oparah has participated in over 20 different startups and was founder and Director of The Venture Accelerator at UC Santa Barbara.

RedSwan CRE now accepts Dogecoin as payment on its marketplace
RedSwan CRE recently announced that two digital-asset deals on its marketplace will begin accepting Dogecoin as payment, in addition to regular USD fiat and stable coins pegged to the USD.
“We are excited about bringing this investment opportunity to Dogecoin holders,” said RedSwan’s CEO Ed Nwokedi. “RedSwan CRE recognizes that cryptocurrency payments are becoming the favored way to transact in the digital economy and is putting its support behind the ecosystem. Dogecoin is one of the fastest-growing coins in the space with strong name recognition and popularity. It is on the cusp of transitioning from a “meme coin” to legitimate institutional and transactional use cases. With this initiative, we are doing our part to accelerate that evolution by providing educational value towards building wealth.”
The two properties available, Lakehouse Oakland and the Apollo Apartments projects, total $380M in value. Investors interested in the properties can obtain more information and can express interest at www.redswan.io.
