Many of us in the property world will have been intrigued by the first reports of Bitcoin being used as a currency for real estate acquisitions, however the rapidly evolving and developing scope of the underlying blockchain technology which supports such cryptocurrencies, may impact the way we do real estate transactions and the real estate landscape both more fundamentally than merely providing alternative currencies in which to transact, and in ways in which no one can yet begin to fully fathom.
The speaker for the event is Alexander Carter-Silk, head of European Intellectual Property at Brown Rudnick LLP, who will help shed some light on this topic outlining some of the ways blockchain solutions might be deployed in real estate. Alex will first set the scene by familiarizing us with blockchain and then start to explore how this technology could impact the real estate industry far beyond the more immediate use of cryptocurrency as consideration for property transactions through the so-called “tokensation” of real assets, after which there will be an opportunity for discussion and Q&A with the audience. A drinks reception will follow.
