Our mission statement is to significantly reduce the cost of residential and vacation renting to reduce the financial barrier to real estate investment. In addition, another aim is to make a substantial impact to the homeless by utilising a significant portion of the KIRK vesting structure as well as donations from the Kirkstone Ecosystem.
Kirkstone is a team of graduates combined with experienced real estate and cryptocurrency professionals. Through our time as students we had mixed experiences with landlords and rental properties. One experience that was familiar across our team was the high cost of living compared to our student loans.
DID YOU KNOW?

Landlords increase their APY every year – you may say this is to match inflationary prices for the landlords. However, housing prices are growing at a faster rate than inflation thus landlords increasing their APY is unnecessary and unfair to students. On average students pay a 27% rental premium in comparison to average renter, even though the student has no stable income. Simply put, landlords are taking advantage of students.
Stay tuned for how Kirkstone aims to level the playing field.
