Finance your home, invest in mortgages or trade tokenized mortgage bonds.
A Better Way To Buy A Home
Introducing an entirely new way to get home loan. The Viva Mortgage Platform is a crowdfunding platform that allows users to originate their mortgage capital requirement by connecting them with thousands of lenders from all around the world. Streamlining the traditional process and, for the first time, introducing international capital to borrowers in regions with inefficient credit systems. Completely eliminating the need to rely on financial intermediaries and other expensive middlemen to get a mortgage.
Tokenize Your Mortgage
FMSP (Fractional Mortgage Share Protocol) was developed by a community of advanced blockchain developers and financial revolutionaries, who are passionate about improving and redistributing the power held by large financial conglomerates. FMSP is a peer to peer protocol, that uses the Ethereum blockchain's smart contract infrastructure, to allow individual users to convert their private mortgage loan into tradeable asset-backed Tokenized Mortgage Bonds (Fractional Mortgage Shares).
Invest In Private Mortgages
The Viva FMS Exchange is an internal Tokenized Mortgage Bond exchange, which will bring liquidity and assurance to private mortgage investing for the first time. The Viva FMS Exchange is designed to cater to and attract large institutional investors and private investors alike, bringing real-world assets and fixed-income investing into the realm of blockchain systems, cryptocurrencies, and digital assets. Investors will have the option to pay trading fees with VIVA Tokens, entitling them to a 75% discount on fees further increasing their investment returns.
How Does Viva Work?
Viva enables buyers to get lower interest rates & investors to earn higher returns.
Why Tokenize Mortgages?
Introducing security & liquidity to private mortgage lending.
Lower mortgage rates
Savings generated by circumventing local financial systems & fees are estimated to range between 20-40% of the total interest expense.
Access to foreign capital
For the first time, Viva introduces foreign capital to mortgage loans, leading to more options and better deals for homebuyers.
Fast, easy & transparent
By allowing a free market of lenders to decide if the mortgage is approved, borrowers can enjoy complete transparency in the loan approval process and completely avoid the old, cumbersome process.
Hybrid, user friendly platform
Viva mortgage loans are paid with fiat currency and wire transfers, just like a regular loan.
Introducing an entirely new asset class. Due to the efficient structure of FMS mortgage investment products, Investors can benefit from generating significantly higher yields relative to other, similar-risk profile investments (eg. Wall Street’s MBS).
Safety & assurance
In the scenario of a default, all mortgage loans produced by Viva are guaranteed by private mortgage insurance policies (PMI) so international investors have comfort & assurance on their investment.
Unlike other peer to peer financing systems, Fractional Mortgage Shares will be liquid and tradeable securities on the Viva Secondary Market FMS Exchange Platform. Solving the most important problem in the alternative financing arena.
Unlike other mortgage investments, FMS products enable investors with complete transparency – allowing investors to see all details of their prospective mortgage investment, while protecting the privacy of the borrower.
Real World Blockchain Solutions
Breaking down the barriers of securitization.
Getting a mortgage is challenging and frustrating, and for many creditworthy individuals around the world - is often impossible. Furthermore, the profit model behind mortgage loans and Mortgage Backed Securities is one of the most lucrative business models in existence.
Despite this, banking corporations around the world consistently exploit consumers with price gouging, collusion and even interest rate manipulation. This centralised authority is irresponsible, and we believe these profits belong to the consumers - the homebuyers and investors - instead of the middlemen (the banks).
Viva is a hybrid blockchain protocol that introduces a brand new option for consumers around the world to finance their homes - the free market.
Tearing down the decades-old barriers to entry in the securitization industry by introducing the world's first Peer to Peer Mortgage Financing Platform & Tokenized Mortgage Exchange.
