In the last three years, the crypto industry has been through a lot. There has been a period of international excitement and exuberance over Bitcoin and other currencies, then 2018 hit hard with a huge crash in January and February.2019 is the year of balance and stability for crypto. Last year, the market got rid of most bump-and-dump startups and is finally populated by committed vendors. Jumping on the crypto bandwagon for fundraising is now is harder than a few years ago, as regulators are stricter and a buyer is not as trustworthy of crypto anymore.In the post, you'll find out what lies ahead for crypto and whether or not your business would benefit from a cryptocurrency developer.  Crypto Market Trends For 2019 Despite the prediction that cryptocurrency will become common by 2030, as for now, people's trust level to most ICOs is rather low. Last year, 50% of cryptocurrencies have died and revealed their true colors - pure scam.Having said that, there is a brighter day for crypto. Cryptocurrencies will still be going strong in 2020 - but the development current might not be what you expected.  1.

Yet another MIPIM is over. Thank you for the interesting discussions about real estate and proptech's new twists and turns – and of course huge thanks for the organisers for making it all happen! You might have heard my thoughts and comments from the casting videos I made at MIPIM – but to wrap it all up, here's my small recap of what went down in Cannes this year. Probably many participants noticed during the first days that technology has noticeably matured: more day-to-day activities take place and substantial companies like Schneider and Siemens are entering the industry. MIPIM Innovation Forum proved that real estate is now more or less about energy savings, smart buildings and IoT. Even though they were emphasized at the event, I still think they're not really on top of the game for the time being. I think everyone has heard about this and is probably talking about it – blockchain. The subject we all know, was of course highly discussed at MIPIM. There's no doubt that it will have a major impact on the development of real estate and property technology industries. One thing that really surprised me at MIPIM PropTech startup competition was the fact that…

There's a lot of talk about the 4th industrial revolution and how we are moving towards the fusion of technology and people. It seems like everyone is talking about robotics, artificial intelligence, the blockchain, nanotechnology, quantum computing, biotechnology, the Internet of Things, 3D printing and autonomous vehicles. A quick Google of "Real Estate technology" reveals that, far from being a laggard, as it is often presented, the Real Estate industry is enthusiastically adopting technology to improve how it works. You only need to look at the activity in the PropTech space, and how this is updating the way our industry does things, to realize the opportunity that already exists. However, with all the buzz it's easy to get overwhelmed, so I'd like to focus on a single thing you can do today: save money through process automation. And specifically, through robotic process automation (RPA) delivered on an as a service basis: the Robots as a Service. Staffing costs -- both salary and other ancillary costs -- form a huge part of a company's monthly operational costs. But unfortunately, companies often don't get the maximum value out of all their employees. A recent YouGov survey showed that more than nine out…
At the CRETech Conference last week, Brad Griewe of Fifth Wall Ventures and Josh Stein of Harbor discussed the three main values of a fractional ownership of real estate as being: Liquidation Premium Opportunity for Foreign Investment in US Real Estate Real Estate As The Best Way to Generate Wealth While the three items can provide value to existing real estate owners, the tokenization of real estate is bad for retail investors and makes real estate even less accessible for wealth generation. Liquidation Premium The liquidation of an asset from a private asset to a public asset is a one-time event. Once it is public, the shares of the asset have already had the price of the liquidation premium priced in. Similar to a stock IPO, once the stock is public, a retail investor does not gain any advantage in value from the liquidation premium. Additionally, private investors would need to compete with public investors to acquire real estate assets. This opposition will make it harder for private investors to purchase properties because, while they plan to keep the asset private, public investors plan to generate value by liquidating the property. Opportunity for Foreign Investment in US Real Estate Much…

In the past couple of years technology as a whole has impacted a variety of business sectors which were not even closely connected to the vast majority of these applications, software and trends.
