Deep Dive Blockchain and Real Estate 
 
The future of real estate is one where registration and management is far more easily documented and managed, transactions more verifiable and transparant, investments become much more liquid, and much more available. These chances will be driven largely by blockchain technologies. These technologies include decentralised and immutable transaction ledgers, asset tokenization, owner entity and land title registration and, as a result, the benefits will open up markets for new investors and let a greater number of parties manage ownership, liquidity, and risk much more effectively.  
 
This deep dive provides for practical and comprehensive insights in the most important applications and developments for all players in the real estate sector. From investors to estate agents, from lawyers to authorities, from fund managers to estate managers. The one-day programme consists of a number of modules covering the various opportunities, possibilities and developments. In addition to Use-Cases and Demos.
