For the third meetup up of the IBREA Berlin chapter in March 2017, Radoslav Albrecht, Founder & CEO of Bitbond, the peer-to-peer bitcoin loans marketplace, spoke about "Smart Contracts/Lending and Real Estate Backed Lending as the Next Frontier".
Radoslav explained in his talk how cross-border lending becomes viable on Bitbond and how he expects blockchain technology will impact the real estate industry. His examples included how the transfer of ownership can be done without escrow and how the proof of ownership through blockchain can reduce fraud in real estate. The vivid Q&A after his presentation showed the interest that the about 30 listeners had in this topic.
In the second part of the evening Chapter Chair Achim Jedelsky gave a presentation about current blockchain/real estate startups before the networking with drinks and snacks started.
The event was hosted by ImmobilienScout24.
