BlockSpaces Presents: Blockchain & Real Estate

Tampa Bay Wave

DESCRIPTION: Blockchain has lead to the creation (and loss) of millions of fortunes, the launch of hundreds of new companies, billions of dollars in investor funding and, most commonly for the non-technical, a lot of confusion around its true benefits. In its most basic form, blockchain makes it possible for the first time ever for people and companies to make major transactions without going through an intermediary. Intermediaries like credit card service companies, stock exchanges, banks and governments can make transactions expensive, slow and illiquid and may open opportunities for fraud or crime. Access to deals, the amount of time it takes to close, property title mistakes, high fees and fraud bog down the real estate industry. It is the largest asset class in the world and has had minimal innovation in the way of increased efficiency during transactions. Blockchain poses major opportunities for innovation in real estate. This session will explain the history and basic concepts of blockchain and where it fits into the real estate and title industry. We’ll also cover other blockchain use cases and the future outlook of the technology, as well as the regulatory climate and potential barriers to entry.
