Billionaire Andrew Carnegie famously said that "90% of millionaires got their wealth by investing in real estate", but real estate is a difficult market to break into.
Billions of people across the world are being priced out of owning property and gaining exposure to this multi-trillion dollar market. Traditional real estate investing favors those with resources; high investment minimums, accreditation requirements, long minimum hold times - making it almost impossible for everyday investors to participate. Even owning a starter home has become less of a reality for most families.
When considering recent market volatility and macroeconomic turbulence, the need is greater than ever for accurate real-time real estate data and a liquid real estate derivatives platform that allows users to gain price exposure to global real estate markets. Parcl delivers both.
Introducing Parcl v2
The Parcl Protocol is a DeFi investment platform that allows users to trade the price movements of real estate markets around the world. Users can discover global real estate markets, gain detailed insights, and have the opportunity to either buy or short real estate markets based on whether they think real world property values will increase or decrease. To provide users with the most accurate and reliable data to trade on, Parcl prices are powered by the Parcl Price Feed, which represents the median price per square foot/meter, aggregated at either the city or neighborhood level, and updated daily.
Parcl bridges an established investment class, real estate, with cutting-edge blockchain technology to provide data-driven solutions for the modern investor.
Parcl was built to revolutionize the way users think about real estate as an investment towards generational-wealth. By giving everyone the tools they need to access one of the worlds most lucrative investment class, Parcl aims to deliver real estate to everyone.
“Parcl is focused on providing price exposure or hedging opportunities versus actually taking a physical house and putting it onto the blockchain,” Parcl CEO and co-founder.

The Parcl Protocol had a successful gated v1 alpha which indicated robust demand for the Parcl Protocol trading platform; results & user feedback were very encouraging. At the same time, the alpha process unveiled certain structural inefficiencies with the v1 model - namely peg stability. As a result, Parcl has developed a fast-follow v2 Protocol which has notable improvements in that it provides peg stability, mathematical leverage, native shorting, and enhanced capital efficiency.
In parallel to transitioning from Parcl v1, v2 is slated to launch in Q4 2022 – Parcl Protocol users are highly encouraged to close all trading and vault positions BEFORE the launch of Parcl v2
