Is 2016 the year of bitcoin and blockchain for real estate?

  • The International Blockchain Real Estate Association will have its first full-day conference on May 17.
  • IBREA was created by Ragnar Lifthrasir, who has been an advocate of using bitcoin and blockchain technology since 2010. Lifthrasir says bitcoin could be especially useful for foreign clients who have issues with traditional banking, and he says blockchain technology could make transactions safer and quicker.
  • Lifthrasir says 2016 will be the year that real estate finally embraces blockchain technology.

“2016 will be the year the sleepy real estate industry wakes up to Bitcoin and Blockchain,” says Ragnar Liftrasir. And, according to Liftrasir, the proof is in the sudden growth of his International Blockchain Real Estate Association (IBREA) whose membership jumped from 200 to 500 in a matter of a few months.
