In creating BRIKCOIN, we wanted to offer people access to an ‘easy in easy out’ high growth UK property investment, with zero fees or commissions, secured by ownership of the physical properties themselves.

BRIKCOIN is now the first decentralised blockchain application dedicated to delivering 100% genuinely affordable and key worker housing in the United Kingdom and elsewhere. Our goal is to act as a catalyst for a social housing rebirth with global effect, helping improve the quality of people’s lives by creating safe, healthy and sustainable communities.

While utilising and enhancing all the current and future capabilities of the Ethereum blockchain; BRIKCOIN’s core activities are in the sourcing, acquisition, development and management of residential property, aimed at increasing BRIKCOIN’s value for the benefit of our “BRIK” owners. BRIKCOIN is the high growth investment that does social good.
