Platform Diversification
Digitisation of Contracts of Ownership via NFTs and Smart Contracts:
Although the real estate industry has already embarked across a radical and admirable program of modernisation through digital platforms such as PEXA, there is still room for improvement by harnessing the inherent power of the blockchain.
NFTs provide such qualities as immutability, accessibility, and transparency, while smart contracts can be utilised to ensure a secure, trustless environment, to decrease friction within transactions, and reduce reliance on third parties, therefore reducing the costs incurred during the course of a transaction.
The development and adoption of these forms of contracts will be highly dependent upon governmental support and an increase in interoperability between independently regulated marketplaces, such as states within Australia.
These frameworks will also have to be independently tailored for each territory, in order to comply with all appropriate legislation and requirements.
Disrupting the Rental Market with DeFi:
Although most holders of digital wealth are likely to look to diversification through ownership, there remains a class of holders who are resistant to engagement with traditional finance and ownership structures.
These holders are likely to look upon real estate ownership as unattractive and would prefer to rent rather than own, in order to retain their holdings and perhaps divest from crypto into other asset classes such as commodities, bonds or trading cards.
Similarly, some holders may not have the requisite wealth to purchase a property, even via the available lending mechanisms.
It is to cater to these consumers that B4Real intends to further investigate the feasibility of creating a crypto-enabled property rental marketplace.
This may be further enhanced by the utilisation of external DeFi protocols to create a platform whereby staking rewards can be used to make rental payments, freeing the holder’s fiat or other incomes for investment or personal expenses, as well as creating an automated payment system for unparalleled convenience.
However, further study is required to ascertain the viability of, and demand for, such a platform.
