In 2017, the company participated in the purchase of an apartment in Ukraine by TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington.
According to the CEO of the startup Propy Natalia Karayaneva:
“We believe Propy is at the forefront of bringing automation and blockchain to real estate with its easy-to-use platform for agents, buyers, and sellers.”
Real estate is an illiquid market, which makes the blockchain startup a potentially strong candidate in the economy. Instead of searching for specialists and intermediaries for transactions, Propy seeks to reduce existing barriers by placing all the necessary entries and signatures on the blockchain.
According to the company, this allows buyers and sellers to save up to 25%. Now the platform Propy shows objects for sale in seven countries, including New York, London and Dubai.
