Amongst biggest things yet in terms of potential - R3 + Corda (+ XRP as Corda's DA) together making play for the 200 trillion dollar property market.

This really demonstrates how threads of ideas coalesce into new ways of doing things on the Internet of Value

I have to credit Digital Asset Investor on You Tube for this link - I think he is making an interesting point

Its worth looking at the video put up a few days ago by Karma coverage, they are describing this sort of automated self auditing permissioned blockchain smart contract systems  The FinTech Revolution - Berkeley Haas

 

Awesome use case.

One of the big players in this will be Thompson Reuters. I dont remember exactly what the article said, but some time ago someone posted about Thompson Reuters looking into blockchain, for something. 

Their role in the industry is they sell +90% of the county property appraiser offices the software they use to manage the property records, and +90% of the county clerk of court offices, which is where the transactions are made official upon being recorded with the clerk of court.

Tiffany Hayden also had a thread a while back regarding the Title Insurance industry, and I think how it is comprised up mainly 2 companies, and one family  has substantial ownership in both. One is here in Jax Florida bit office building on the river downtown,  I'm sort of trying to network in and go speak with their leadership.

The title insurance industry could be facing an existential threat, if real property "chain of titles" can be instantly and for free verified by checking the public distributed ledger (run by county property appraisers) who have the responsibility to maintain the public record.

This is going to take some seriously forward thinking real estate professionals to push this through. I'm not confident most real estate agents are smart enough or risky enough to understand what this even means....

Real Estate agents are not always the most savvy folks. Back when I did my first software project it was a Return on Investment calculator tool for real estate agents to use and help their client buyers & sellers better understand the personal financial impact of a home. I cant tell you how many agents told me point blank that "clients dont care about all that numbers stuff, they want a nice kitchen". At the time, immediately past crash 60% of buyers were "investors", this was true up till about 2010. That project got ripped off by revestor.com who raised the exact funding amount I was asking for, and one of the "investors" I pitched participated. The PR announcement was on my birthday :ireful1:

I think that revestor guy ran out of innovation though, sort of like Nextdoor.com "never got it" that this was a market re-design opportunity, and went off in search of local advertising (which was the buzz in investor circles at the time). Back when I had to give up on those two projects, I said, "even if I get dead, this will get done sooner or later"... tick tock tick tock... Now we have this Corda real estate project.

The same story will unfold with KarmaCoverage, unless it gets magically funded (maybe by XRP going up a lot ;)) . Currently none of the P2P coverage services have fully abandoned the insurance indemnity contract business model. I only know one that uses blockchain, and they messed up by doing BTC (all these came after KarmaCoverage late 2013,  except for Friendsurance in Germany)... tick tock tick tock... it will happen, even if I get dead.

When people mimic/steal ideas of others they always do it badly because they don't get the essence of the thing.

@Julian_Williams 

Did some googling, stumbled upon PeerCover, which was using something called Ripple.. so I took a look and 😍 there it was! The software functionality I needed to do the real estate markets.

 

Wow... Peercover. Have not heard that name for a long time. That's one for the old ripple heads around here.

I ended up speaking with Jared on the phone back then. He told me how Goldman Sachs an MIT were stealing his IP, or something. I was hoping to find someone I could work with, but that's not what I found. His tech was good enough, but he didnt understand some business & legal issues that his model was exposed to... he was offering indemnity.

Ironically another guy in NZ started a PeerCover.co.nz which is a P2P type of coverage service. I spoke with him also, actuarial background. He didnt know much about distributed ledger tech, I was asking because this was about the same time as when Sean had to shut down his NZ gateway, in part due to that $1 million XRP transfer that Jed sent through his gateway to Stellar.

He was obviously a smart dude, but damn cray at the same time.  I remember him wanting to go after the Clinton’s at one point about something.
