[09:02] What is Disruptive Technology?
Disruptive technology refers to anything that challenges societal norms and revolutionizes the way things are done. It breaks open established conventions, offering more efficient, cost-effective, and faster alternatives. Blockchain, for instance, has the potential to disrupt information exchange and validation, particularly in finance. Consider Bitcoin: do we really need multiple layers of institutions to send or receive money from one country to another, like from America to Amsterdam? It’s about reimagining traditional processes and embracing innovative solutions that can reshape our world.
[10:23] Understanding Web 3, Blockchain, Cryptocurrency, and Decentralized Networking
Web 3 encompasses various components, including metaverses – alternative digital worlds for immersive experiences – as recently highlighted by Facebook. Unlike traditional Web 2 technology, Web 3 introduces a more interactive and social aspect to online experiences. At its core is blockchain technology, enabling decentralized entities and transactions using cryptocurrency. This decentralized approach addresses concerns about data governance and control, offering the opportunity to reshape the socio-economic landscape and redefine information governance through Web 3.
[39:42] Simplifying Digital Transactions and Revolutionizing The Real Estate Industry Through Blockchain
Blockchain removes middlemen in digital transactions, automating processes through code-based trust. This enables seamless execution of contracts and title transfers, transforming the real estate industry. By streamlining the process and reducing human involvement, innovation in buying real estate and creating funds becomes immense. Embracing technology requires a broader perspective, recognizing its disruptive nature and the untapped potential of reducing intermediaries in real estate transactions.
