Given the reports of the first real estate transactions being conducted with Bitcoin, the real estate industry has been left wondering what exactly is Bitcoin, how is related to Blockchain and will the disruptive forces seen in sectors like banking and healthcare also be seen in real estate?
Additionally, as excitement builds around the delivery of the most innovative real estate projects the world has ever seen at home here in New York, how much of an impact is it realistic to expect technology to have on end-user experience in projects like Related's Hudson Yards and SL Green's One Vanderbilt Avenue? What about those being planned today in preparation for tomorrow's world like Cornell's Tech Campus?
