We are pleased to announce the upcoming Blockchain For Real event. This exclusive five-hour gathering will be held on July 23, 2019, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will feature panel discussions that are sure to be lively and informative. Topics include Cybersecurity, Opportunity Zones, and Tokenization. Propy Blog is honored to serve as a media partner and will be providing video coverage.
The guests at the event will be thought leaders in real estate, venture capital, and blockchain. The featured speakers include Glenn Shimkus, Suzy Truax, Michael Arrington, and Natalia Karayaneva.
Cybersecurity is of interest to real estate and blockchain professionals alike. A recent report by cybersecurity firm, eSentire, found real estate to be a popular target of hackers who commandeer agent email addresses to steal information or money from clients. Propy’s Real Estate Transaction Platform removes the risk of sending sensitive details via email, and blockchain technology safeguards data through cryptography and decentralization.
There has been a lot of buzz about Opportunity Zones. As part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, the Trump administration designated nearly 9,000 Opportunity Zones or low-income neighborhoods in need of investment. The law encourages investors by offering a series of tax breaks including capital gains deferral, a step-up in basis, and, for investments of 10 years or longer, a capital gains exclusion. To maximize their incentives, individuals and groups have until the end of 2019 to invest.
Blockchain initiatives have recently entered the Opportunity Zone investment market. One initiative, Pathchain TM, aims to improve the integrity of Opportunity Zone investments by providing end-to-end automation and verifiable, immutable, and complete digital records.
The final subject, Tokenization, is a hot topic today. Tokenization relies on blockchain technology to split assets into shares that can be traded or sold for cash. As the future of real estate may well be tokenized, it is vital that thought leaders discuss the impact that the practice will have on the industry and the economy at large.
The Future of Blockchain and Real Estate
Blockchain technology offers many exciting possibilities for real estate, and 2019 will be another year of progress. The Blockchain For Real event unites influencers in the blockchain, finance, and real estate sectors to celebrate the advancements that have been made and to imagine the bright future that awaits.
