Paraiso Real Estate operates much like a traditional vacation rental company. It offers private rentals with hotel amenities in some of the world's most beautiful destinations – starting with Medellin.

"We're mobilizing the hotel industry" Eric Klein says. "Whether it's a villa, condo or penthouse, guests can expect consistent hospitality across the platform. Our vision is to provide elevated rentals with units around the world and guests have access to these properties through our token." Paraiso Real Estate launched on Unicrypt last week with their pre-sale selling out in under 20 minutes. The token went public on PancakeSwap on April 20th. The firm is anticipating a sharper rise once listed on CoinGecko, CoinMarketCap and other leading exchanges and indexes. To date, Paraiso already has over 700 members between their discord and telegram groups. We've done zero marketing. That goes to show that people are ready for a product like this. It's the way of the future. We expect to have over 60 properties by the end of 2022 and a membership base of over 1,000 token holders." Maria Caudia says, Director of Operations
