Industry Working Groups

Become an IBREA Industry Member and join our working groups, where companies can come together to create and implement the best blockchain solutions to solve the hardest problems facing real estate. Your organization can set itself apart as a leader and solution provider.

What do the Working Groups do? Join and decide.


Tokenization Of Assets

Creating a blockchain token to represent a real estate asset will enable a new species of crowdfunding and is the foundation for smart contracts. A tokenized asset can be much more liquid, transparent, and secure than the existing paper based asset infrastructure.

Blockchain for Title & Conveyance

With our Cook County pilot program, IBREA helped create the first ever digital deed that allowed for blockchain based conveyance. We have open sourced the legal and procedural protocol. The next step is to foster further software development, fund startups, and implement the blockchain title system in companies and countries.
