Crypto Voices

Ragnar overviews his work toward getting real estate deals done more effectively, efficiently, and seamlessly with Bitcoin and blockchain. We talk deeds, title, mortgages, leases, tenants, financials, time-stamping, and tokens. As Fernando has written, when people refer to tokenization in the "real world," essentially they are referring to a "proxy" phenomenon, meaning the token represents something else (as opposed to a "native" token, such as a bitcoin). Historically, the government has always been involved in registering and tracking property rights. So we spend a lot of time discussing the overlap of these two forces: traditional government property ownership recognition, versus property ownership recognition on the blockchain (proxy tokens). We discuss different technical aspects, such as tokenizing on Bitcoin, versus Ethereum, Stellar, or other blockchains. We talk stablecoins, and many other big picture aspects on getting real estate effectively working in the digital age.
