4. How First of it's Kind Property Market Blockchain Infrastructure is Revolutionising Real Estate Sales, Finance and Settlements
In this episode we interview John Reynolds, Founder and COO of Coadjute, a software company which focuses on connecting property market players using blockchain technology, creating in essence an Enterprise version of the Metaverse. Coadjute could be described as SWIFT of the Property Market, without which the transactions would be unimaginable in the near future. John believes we would soon use smart contracts, digitised land titles, digital currency and digital identities which will allow rapid property transactions to happen online, creating a fully digitised property market. The company was born from the consulting work John did for the UK Land Registry back in 2018, an R&D project that focused on the applications of blockchain technology to streamline the homebuying process. John believes that blockchain technology will do to industries what middleware has done for organisations in the past. It will help the free flow of information between companies and identification of data without the need of middleware. John got into blockchain as a hobby in 2016, buying and selling cryptocurrencies, and up to that point had spent his whole life in enterprise IT.  Highlights Coadjute: what is it and what are its plans for the future?They started off as consultants for a land registry R&D project in 2018. They worked with the UK property industry to use blockchain technology to make the homebuying process simpler, faster and cheaper.Dan Salmons, previous director at Natwest, joined Coadjute after the Land registry project. John worked with Dan and his team to explore the possibility of building a company which would become Coadjute, and Dan believed in the idea of the company so much that he joined them full time as the CEO.John is currently an Entrepreneur In Residence at R3 Corda, an enterprise distributed ledger technology company. Coudjute uses R3 Corda because of their need for  transactions to be private whilst still allowing all participants of the transaction to be able to identify each other. This is something that R3 Croda has built into the framework. Coadjute helps their customers by connecting all real estate transaction players in the seamless way.  They allow a free flow of information between lawyers, surveyors, estate agents, buyers and more, which makes the process of buying a house much more efficient. Before then, each of these different players would have their own software and there was no way to share information freely between the different softwares, meaning long telephone conversations and slow transactions. Coadjute has fixed this. Coadjute have already signed up 70% of all real estate platforms and 30% of conveyancing platforms in the UK. John is not surprised by this. Coadjute has now begun a full scale rollout into the UK real estate market. International expansion to the US and Australia is on the horizon. The future of Real EstateJohn believes we would soon use smart contracts, digitised land titles, digital currency and digital identities which will allow rapid property transactions to happen online, creating a fully digitised property market. Central Bank Digital Currency  will be coming to England soon, which would be great for the development and indoctrination of blockchain technology. Links: John Reynolds   www.linkedin.com/in/reynodesDan Salmons      www.linkedin.com/in/dansalmonsCoadjute      www.coadjute.comHM Land Registry  www.gov.ukThe Law Commission of the UK.   www.lawcom.gov.ukLaw Tech UK   www.lawtechuk.io
