Another day, another blockchain project. This time sources are reporting that Knotel  – an office space rental service in Manhattan – has acquired 42Floors,  a commercial real estate search engine in order to, according to founder Amol Sarva, get “access to data and technology on over 10 billion square feet of office space, driving further liquidity to Knotel’s marketplace while also accelerating its plans for a blockchain platform.”
The blockchain is in the middle of a major hype cycle at the moment, and that makes it hard for many people to take it seriously, but if you look at the core digital ledger technology, there is tremendous potential to change the way we think about trust in business. Yet these are still extremely early days and there are a number of missing pieces that need to be in place for the blockchain to really take off in the enterprise. Suffice it to say that it has caught the fancy of major enterprise vendors with the likes of SAP,…
If money talks, it’s saying venture capitalists see real potential for blockchain technology across industries. Nearly halfway into the year, VCshave poured $1.3 billion into blockchain companies, more money than the total for 2017. Commercial real estate applications are clear: property title management, pre-lease due diligence process, payment processing, and lease management are a few areas standing to benefit from blockchain application. The transparency and cost-saving disruption that could occur will change CRE deals forever. That said, who’s working on blockchain in CRE? Chainalysis Trust is essential for blockchain’s adoption. Chainalysis understands this and is working with people, governments, and…
WeWork competitor Knotel announced Monday its acquisition of commercial real estate search engine 42Floors.

The acquisition will give Knotel access to data on 10 billion square feet of office space, according to a Knotel press release, and will further the firm’s plans for a blockchain platform named Baya. The news follows Knotel’s June acquisition of German workspace operator Ahoy!Berlin, which reflected the company’s push into the European…
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Foreign exchange settlement provider CLS, IBM (IBM.N) and nine financial institutions, including Barclays Plc (BARC.L) and Citigroup Inc (C.N), are testing a platform to access blockchain-based applications, the companies said on Monday.

The country’s first blockchain-only real estate trade involved 10 acres of land just north of Los Angeles County. The sale was made through a platform developed by Palo Alto-based real estate startup Propy. The company’s platform records the information of the sale — the purchase agreement, payments, and other essentials — on the public Ethereum blockchain. The amount was unknown.
Blockchain technology—the technology behind crypto currencies—could change the real estate market, but the industry has been slow to adopt it. That is because some myths have perpetuated dangers of the technology, but Natalia Karayaneva, CEO of Propy, a global real estate marketplace that has completed transactions using blockchain technology, says that many of the myths and dangers associated with blockchain are false.
As Europe nurtures its ambitions to be a leader in blockchain, the new technology is making small but significant inroads into its real estate markets.  From Sweden to Spain to the UK, more private companies – as well as public bodies – are turning to the fledgling technology, which acts as a shared digital register for transactions made in bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies. By connecting data sources, documents and other types of information, blockchain can improve security, efficiency and transparency within transactions.

A local tech startup is partnering with real estate giant Re/Max to figure out how to use blockchain technology for buying and selling property in Mexico. The startup, once called XY Findables but now going by XYO Network, specializes in grabbing location data and storing it on the blockchain. The company said Re/Max is brainstorming several applications for the technology, including how to build an unhackable online land registry that would allow buyers, sellers, brokers and other agents to see who owns what in Mexico — and review details about each parcel of land.
Latham & Watkins has become the latest major firm to join the Global Legal Blockchain Consortium (GLBC), a group of industry stakeholders focused on ‘enhancing the security, privacy, productivity, and interoperability of blockchain technology’ for the legal market. Its membership now means there are 125 large companies, law firms, software pioneers, and universities – across 20 countries – that have joined the GLBC to develop standards to govern the use of blockchain technology in the law.
It’s no secret that everyone from small startups to major corporations is jumping on the blockchain trend. As tech giants like Facebook explore blockchain as a means to reinvent themselves, startups are working on blockchain projects that could displace services like AWS (as with Filecoin) or loosen tech companies’ hold on personal information.
SAN DIEGO—Blockchain technology has the potential to fundamentally change commercial real estate. So said panelists at the recent CREW Network and Marketplace Convention here in San Diego.
For Stephane De Baets, placing a percentage of the St. Regis Aspen luxury resort on the blockchain is an experimental gamble into the future. “We wanted to be one of the first to go through the motions because you learn so much,” De Baets said. “We see [blockchain] as an opportunity if you do it right.” It is always risky to walk out on the bleeding edge of a new trend — and blockchain-fueled investments are one of the hottest trends to hit the commercial real estate market in a long time.
If you think of blockchain, you might think of data, secrecy or decentralization. But its primary purpose was to act as a digital time stamp and was first used in 1992 by Haber and Stornetta to create a verifiable audit trail. Back then time-stamping was incredibly useful in their scientific space, where ideas were currency and you needed to protect them.
SANTA ANA, Calif., Nov. 28, 2018 – First American Financial Corporation (NYSE: FAF), a leading global provider of title insurance, settlement services and risk solutions for real estate transactions, today announced the launch of a shared blockchain system designed by First American to increase efficiency, reduce risk and improve the title production process. The system is intended to facilitate the exchange of prior title insurance policies between underwriters that contribute to the system.
Real estate’s much-anticipated affair with blockchain technology seems to be becoming a reality. Just as investors in real estate investment trusts can buy shares that represent an ownership stake in a piece of large trophy assets, a digital security token offering functions much the same way. The difference for tokens is that distributed ledger technology is used to record the transaction, and any subsequent transactions on a blockchain.
New York isn’t giving up on the digital-ledger technology that makes Bitcoin and other tokens work even after last year’s collapse of the cryptocurrency market. The New York City Economic Development Corporation said its Blockchain Center in Manhattan will open Thursday a part of a partnership with affiliates of venture-capital fund Future\Perfect Ventures and the Global Blockchain Business Council, a trade organization. The city may also start testing the use of blockchain technology in the fall.
Blockchain technology could have a major effect on the real estate industry, from property purchasing to due diligence to title management. We identify the early adopters and potential impact. The real estate industry is undergoing a digital transformation. While historically a “pen and pencil” business — often relying on inefficient and archaic methods for doing business and keeping records — technology has begun to help reshape the expanding global market.
“You will not learn about how the blockchain works, but how the blockchain works for you,” Stephen Meade, CEO of MonetaPro, said in as the opening presenter at the Unblocking the Blockchain CREW San Diego event this week.

Some of the world’s largest lenders, law firms and real estate companies are turning to the technology behind Bitcoin to streamline the process of buying and selling property. Barclays Plc, Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc and Clifford Chance LLPwere among 40 companies to test a new platform developed by Instant Property Network, a company backed by blockchain software firm R3. IPN said it could cut the time it takes to buy a house from months to weeks and, if applied globally, could result in an annual saving of about $160 billion.

NEW YORK CITY—“Tokenization is a new type of technology that develops digital assets,” says Katya Fisher, a partner in Greenspoon Marder’s blockchain, digital assets and technology transactions practice group. “It’s a digital upgrade for analog assets. It’s a way to transform capital markets.” Tokenization is supported by blockchain, a technology that allows for sharing of files and digital assets without generating duplicate copies. Blockchain is a peer-to-peer digital ledger where the software records each transaction in a block without a third party (such as a bank which is needed for most current electronic payments).
NEW YORK CITY—Kevin Shtofman, who heads global technology strategy for Deloitte’s real estate group, says 2018 was the year for testing blockchain.

Blockchain-fueled investments promise to dramatically transform the commercial real estate market landscape, and stakeholders are starting to take notice. Blockchain technology unfreezes real estate equity, making it a more feasible investment option for those who need more liquidity in their portfolio.

Elevated Returns, the New York City-based asset manager that owns the St. Regis Hotel in Aspen, Colo., saw its plans to use the property to create what it called the country’s first single-asset REIT fizzle in February, days before a planned IPO.

Real estate touches every part of our lives -- our homes, workplaces, where we shop, and even where we try to get away. So it won’t be surprising that real estate was the largest industry in the United States as of 2018. But at a time where technology is at the forefront across all industries, the real estate industry spends less than 1% on information technology.
While Bitcoin has made extraordinary gains in terms of mainstream acceptance in the last year, one area where the cryptocurrency continues to struggle is in the real estate sector. The coming new year, however, could prove to be the year in which real estate and Bitcoin finally form a merger.
The nexus between real estate and technology is clearly evidenced by events such as New York Real Estate Tech Week (NYRTEW), which started in 2015.

Three things real estate professionals don’t do anymore: shift through Sunday morning classifieds for new properties, rely on direct mail advertising, or sending faxes to potential clients. The innovation that made faxes and typewriters obsolete in our everyday lives revolutionized how real estate business is conducted. Buyers can tour a space without ever stepping foot inside and contracts can be signed before leaving a property.

Robots!!! I was fortunate to have been asked to give a speech recently at the University of Colorado Boulder on forecasting the tech trends that will most impact the future of the commercial real estate industry. I touched on driverless cars, smart cities and buildings, drones, co-working, etc… But the parts of the presentation I focused on the most were VR and AI. I really think they are going to be a game changer in so many ways.
I have been consistently having more conversations with folks in real estate tech from outside the U.S. Literally on a weekly basis I get an email, social connection or call from another tech entrepreneur from in Europe and Asia. They want to just pick my brain on observations in the U.S. commercial real estate tech sector and of course, I do the same for their experiences.

Remember how cool the TI-82 graphic calculators were back in the day? Punching in data to create circles and parabolas was the height of calculation. Now computers sort millions of parameters and spit out results in seconds. Known as big data, the ability to sort through data sets to find trends and patterns is transforming how multiple industries conduct business. Commercial real estate is no exception.
Technology is rapidly changing the built environment. From step one, with buildings that can be printed, to retrofitting existing spaces with smart technology that improves security and efficiency. Staying on top of emerging practices challenges the real estate industry’s hard-working professionals.
