- Job description

Internship Blockchain & AI: Real Estate Software Engineering Openings

(2 Interns Collaborating)

 

The Blockchain provides a distributed ledger that ensures full traceability, integrity, and transparency over its transactions. The blockchain serves as an audit log for actions performed and in collaboration with IoT, it could create more trust.

 

Real Estate is an important sector in terms of value. The current real estate property registration process is very slow and not transparent in nature. There are large numbers of disputes where it becomes difficult to establish the actual owner of the property. Blockchain can help in making the property registration process more transparent and streamlined.

Real estate transactions are often conducted offline, which involves many face-to-face engagements with various entities. Brokers, lawyers, and banks have long been part of the real estate ecosystem. However, blockchain may soon usher in a shift in their roles and participation in real estate transactions

 

Value of Blockchain


Blockchain can be used in functions such as listings, payments, and legal documentation. Cutting out the intermediaries will result in buyers and sellers getting more out of their money, because they will save on commissions and fees charged by these intermediaries. Many processes in the sale and buying process can be automated by implementing AI or smart contracts.
