Platform Ventures CTO, Roger Smith, was featured in Forbes sharing his thoughts on blockchain.
“If you search the internet for the “top five ways that blockchain will impact X, Y or Z,” you will surely be offered the same results over and over again. Removing a central authority, speed, trust — all of these blockchain benefits also apply to real estate. In real estate, though, all of the examples seem to be trite, and if you really break it down, you realize there is a reason no one has taken these blockchain projects on — because they don’t really change anything.
I have been thinking about how we are applying blockchain to the real estate space. Blockchain could have a large impact and change the way real estate gets done, but it requires big changes, not just minor tweaks.”
