In term of investment for Real Estate coin traders, we can say that the tokens are really profitable. Both, BEE Token and BERRY coins have seen an increase higher than 200% in price since the public launch and the end of ICO turn. The daily traded volume is also constantly growing and the number of Exchanges where those coins are tradable is also increasing.
