The tenancy was decentralized and non-custodial, meaning that no escrow intermediary was required to take over custody of the NFT at any time, nor any legal contracts to be signed. Such financial transactions are made possible by Vera’s smart contracts, which are programs stored on a blockchain that run when predetermined conditions are met, and are used to automate the execution of a deal so that all participants can be immediately certain of the result, without any involvement of the middleman or loss of time.
Denis Lam, CEO and Founder of Vera Labs, the company that develops Vera, said: “The tremendous interest in NFTs this year has demonstrated the desire of communities to have true ownership of the assets they create, buy or own. . But true ownership means these assets should have the capacity to generate recurring income and have utility beyond speculative buying and selling.Vera is excited to meet these challenges and pioneer the financialization of the next. trillion dollar asset class after the advent of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. “
Michael Arbach, CTO and Co-Founder of Vera Labs added, “Showing this NFT loan and lease demo on our Ethereum backbone represents a monumental milestone in the fintech industry. The overhead costs required for a centralized escrow service provider are considerably higher and generally increase with the value of the assets traded. By using Vera’s decentralized technology, we allow this service to be performed with a fixed fee regardless of the value of the loaned and borrowed assets. And when we deploy our technology on other blockchain networks in the near future such as Polygon, BSC or Solana, we will further reduce this cost of service to a negligible amount. In addition, our solution is not only much more cost effective, but also offers superior security compared to traditional centralized approaches. Our launch is a small step in our technology roadmap but a giant step towards granting our technology more applications / use cases to enter other industries beyond digital and cryptonative arts such as event passes, ticketing, music, entertainment, games, metaverse and much more! “
