personally i think buying anything with an unstable currency is nuts whether socks , stocks or real estate .

it is hard enough investing and making money in a meaningful way . can you imagine selling an appreciated asset like real estate and the next day the payment falls in value more than the asset appreciated . so now you lost money ....

a currency needs to be stable to be much use except out on the fringe .

Blockchain technology isn't just about crypto-currencies. It is being used to make information secure and verifiable.


I can see its usefulness for records that need to be permanent and nearly hack-proof, such as with land titles and banking records.

And how is blockchain better for real estate? Titling and deeds? No, a central authority is better. Transactions? Possibly.
