REITs own approximately $3 trillion in gross real estate assets, with more than $2 trillion of that total from publically listed and non-listed REITs and the remainder from privately held REITs. By offering traditional REIT investors 2X leverage on the proven Global Select All REITs Index, JNTR/x token possess intrinsic demand amongst these investors.
Now, if Jointer allowed trading for JNTR/x DIRECTLY against ETH or BTC, the entire ecosystem would not have the ability to provide liquidity for investors or would reduce the amount of funds Jointer could invest in commercial real estate.
Furthermore, JNTR/x is built on the Ethereum blockchain, therefore it needs cross-chain (two or more blockchain) capabilities to allow investors to contribute using Bitcoin, Tron, or Binance directly. JNTR provides the cross-chain capabilities for investors. In the future, if a better blockchain than Ethereum arises, JNTR and JNTR/x will switch as needed.
