Web 3 and the Future of Real Estate
"It's really enjoyable and I think you know what you're doing today or this evening again. Just moves it forward. It starts to debate gets people thinking about it and yes there's problems. There's problems with all emerging new technologies but at the end of the day people want to do things quickly and this allows people to do things quickly."
Blockchain is the enabler of Web 3, allowing for automation of processes and transactions through technologies like smart contracts.
Web 3 offers businesses the opportunity to build and expand their community and fan base, providing exceptional value and loyalty to customers that goes beyond what was possible in web 2.
The bridging of web3 and the real world has just begun, and when fully realized, it has the potential to transform the way we buy and own property.
The transition from web 2 to web 3 in real estate is happening slowly, but the revolution is happening quickly, similar to what occurred in the finance industry.
The younger generation is eager to transform the real estate industry by utilizing technology and coding to overcome outdated practices and barriers.
"The blockchain is now a stage in its development equivalent to where the internet was in or around 1995." - Sir Jeffrey Voss, suggesting that blockchain technology is unstoppable and will become ubiquitous in major sectors.
The digitization of real estate, including the incorporation of alternative data and the use of analytics and AI, is enabling the analysis of properties at scale and shifting the industry towards a data-driven model.
Blockchain and Real Estate Transactions
Tokenizing property and storing legal rights and guarantees on the blockchain can provide a more secure and streamlined transaction process, eliminating the bureaucracy and high costs associated with traditional real estate transactions.
The use of blockchain technology and NFTs in real estate allows for secure digital documentation of warranties and contracts, providing a more efficient and secure process for property transactions.
Tokenizing properties in the web3 space can democratize access to real estate, allowing younger people to own real estate for the first time and creating a new market.
"Even if only half a percent of global real estate transactions move on to the blockchain, that's more business than Bitcoin has done in its entire history."
NFTs in Real Estate
The NFT industry is predicted to reach $13.6 billion by 2027, indicating its rapid growth and potential for innovation.
The use of NFTs in real estate can provide a secure solution for verifying ownership of land, especially in developing countries.
The main innovation of selling property as an NFT is streamlining the process by doing due diligence first before the handshake, allowing for instant transactions.
The value of an NFT can exist independently from the physical asset it represents, making it a unique and valuable investment.
