How Blockchain Democratizes Commercial Real Estate

Public Aggregation ChannelNovember 25, 2021
Commercial real estate has always been a rich man’s asset class. Ed Nwokedi, founder and CEO of RedSwan CRE, joins Nick Halaris, president of Metros Capital, to discuss how that is changing. The digitization of real estate is well underway, as will be evident to viewers who have been following Halaris’s interview series. Nwokedi and RedSwan have brought a niche to the tokenized real estate space by focusing on commercial real estate, even allowing investors to purchase shares of real estate with Dogecoin! As realtors know, commercial real estate is an entirely different beast from residential. Nwokedi sees a return to normal on the horizon as countries begin opening up and people begin going back to work. This makes commercial property an attractive asset, which historically has been a stable source of returns on par with major stock indices. Nwokedi makes the case for increased stability within this asset class with the advent of tokenization, which will provide much-needed liquidity to the secondary market. Recorded on November 2, 2021.

Tascha Che: Layer-1s Are the New Nation States in Digital Economies
Tascha Che, macroeconomist and founder of Tascha Labs, predicts Layer-1 blockchains to be the big winners in crypto and examines how NFTs derive value. In her research into Layer-1 blockchains, Che was tired of hearing analysts attempt to value tokens like Solana, Cardano, and Ethereum based on old metrics like P/E ratios and future projected cash flow. This ignores the preeminent utility of what these projects aim to achieve, their value as monetary assets. Monetary value ties into her case for Layer-1 solutions to become the dominant investments in crypto. “All the layer-1 chains that we know today - Ethereum, Solana, Avalanche, and so on - to me are providing the critical infrastructure to the metaverse, and they are sort of the new nation states in the new digital economy,” says Che. She stands firm in her belief that fiat currencies are on the way down, as is a common sentiment in the crypto community. It is this widespread devaluation which will continue to push average people to invest in crypto, especially in undeveloped countries. Che also discusses her recent NFT creations and explains her thoughts, more broadly, on how humans arbitrarily apply value. Interviewed by Ash Bennington on November 18, 2021.

With Crypto "Every Little Thing, Gonna Be Alright"
This week, crypto markets are "red" across the board, and investors need something to put them at ease. Real Vision's Raoul Pal and Elaine Ly join Kevin Kelly, co-founder of Delphi Digital, to echo thoughts from a song written by the late Bob Marley that says: "every little thing, gonna be alright." Raoul reminds us crypto is an asset class that regularly moves 70 to 100 percent, and price movements like this past week are just "noise." Our hosts also discuss the metaverse--the buzzword on everyone's lips right now. They feel the crypto community has barely scratched the surface of what it could mean for all of us. Yes, the metaverse is a place for gaming, social clubs, and showing off your NFTs; but it's also for scaling access to education, medical care, and work. It's the next stage of the internet, and it globalizes everybody in ways we cannot even begin to understand yet. Listen in to grasp why our hosts see a bright future for crypto.

Stablecoin Tech: A Turning Point for Banking
The ability of stablecoins to track collateral and settle instantly could be a game-changer. Caitlin Long, Founder & CEO of Avanti Financial Group, and Dr. Manmohan Singh, Senior Financial Economist at the International Monetary Fund, discuss why stablecoins can resolve issues stemming from bank counterparties re-using collateral. Long explains how interest in cryptocurrencies evolved over time and stresses the value in stablecoins: “Now, if we have digital versions of collateral that settle in minutes with irreversibility on a blockchain, that might solve some of the collateral issues, the bottlenecks that have arisen in the traditional finance. And also, very importantly, make it very obvious to everyone how long collateral chains are, and therefore, how much leverage there really is in the traditional financial system.” In the interview, Long and Singh explain that if the Fed starts using stablecoins, banks will need to respond to problems faster because transactions settle instantaneously, and regulators can begin to work proactively to reduce banks’ counterparty risks as they see rehypothecation of collateral. Tune in to see how stablecoins could be just what the financial system needs. Interviewed by Ash Bennington on November 18, 2021.
