Why have you decided to issue 10,000 BSPT to an owner of a tokenized property?

Tokenizing 10% of a real estate asset's value seems the safest possible fraction and simplifies due diligence on the property title and capital stack structure.

This means going for 10% mitigates potential issues and ensures we are tokenizing in the safest possible manner.

What is the amount of BST tokens I will earn per month when tokenizing a property worth USD 1,000,000?

It is hard to estimate your earnings rate, as monthly rewards per user vary depending on the BSPT holder's pool share.
