The Real Estate Market Switches to Blockchain

The power of countries depends on the economy, which real estate market is a significant segment of. More than 50% of global finance belongs to it. An impressive share, isn’t it? This market segment is most adapted to reforms and crises.

However, this does not mean that it cannot be slightly improved by innovations, such as the blockchain. Technological upgrade will allow the real estate market, as well as the economy in particular, to move to a new stage of development.

While the real estate market is “collecting its belongings” and is preparing for a full-fledged move to the blockchain, a Japanese company has launched the sale of real estate for cryptocurrency. A couple of Bitcoins can buy you a paradise on an island somewhere in the Caribbean. The world of real estate is gradually becoming digital.

Definitely, the “relocation” of the housing market onto the blockchain will have a positive impact on its development. This promising combo will improve and facilitate the purchase of real estate as follows. It will allow to:

  • exclude intermediaries who charge a commission in the course of transactions;
  • reduce the time for the preparation of transactions and references;
  • reduce the risk of fraud;
  • simplify the process of checking property before selling:
  • customers can buy property at any time of the day;
  • opportunity to track the entire history of the transaction.

All this makes the purchase of real estate easier and safer, but not publicly available. The latter and the above mentioned benefits can be offered by Elements Estates.

The project provides an opportunity to buy housing not only to reserved players. Owing to blockchain technology the national boundaries are disappearing as assets can freely move from one country to another.

It is time to improve the global economy by reinforcing the real estate market with blockchain and cryptocurrency.
