Over $1 billion is lost to real estate-specific wire fraud in the United States each year, according to Natalia Karayaneva, CEO of blockchain-powered real estate company Propy. Making matters worse, one in three people worldwide can effectively prove property ownership — most land and home owners are at risk, and most don’t even realize it!
That’s where Propy comes in. Using smartphones and other ubiquitous technology, Propy aims to make proving property ownership and transferring real estate-related funds easy and secure. Blockchain’s features make it uniquely suited for real estate’s document-heavy processes. Propy is leading the charge in making blockchain a central component in high-value real estate transactions and everyday operations.
