EP 017: Marco Abele – TEND Platform – How The Tokenization Of Assets Will Begin

Marco Abele Interviewed on The Expat Money Show

TEND Platform – How the Tokenization of Assets Will Begin


Today’s guest is formerly the Cheif Digital Officer at one of the worlds most prestigious banks, he is a Fin-Tech entrepreneur with over 20 years experience in the industry and is now the founder of the TEND Platform – A Blockchain company that focuses on co-ownership of luxury goods and the tokenisation of real assets.


In this episode, we discuss the TEND platform and how it seeks to take rare and vintage objects that have inherent worth and tokenize them on the blockchain so that more investors can enjoy and profit from them in a safe and done-for-you service.

Excerpts from the TEND Website:



  • Investment objects that fulfil a passion or pursuit of a personally important purpose, sourced as a result of the interests of the clients themselves
  • Lowering the entry barriers that exist today, enabling people to get access to special investment opportunities currently beyond their reach
  • Receiving an investment return as co-owner, i.e. benefiting from the appreciation or proceeds of the asset



  • Opportunity to see and enjoy the investment first-hand – creating a tangible, emotional return on investment
  • Sharing that experience with family and friends or a community of like-minded people who have common interest to invest together
  • Gives unforgettable memories, identity, and passion points of an otherwise unattainable unique experience

  • Super light involvement for the clients, as the TEND platform takes care of the associated obligations of the object owners
  • A digital interface that serves as main interaction platform. Next, to communication and information features, the platform provides a wallet for the invested assets as well as allows to buy and sell again these investments.
  • Investment-associated experiences are provided together with a strong network of business partners fulfilling the service promise



  • First, an asset undergoes the procedure of a due diligence to authenticate the asset
  • The asset is then split up in parts/shares and the associated experience per share is defined
  • The result is certified and the individual shares are put on the blockchain to be registered and be tradable thereafter
