How Cryptocurrencies are affecting the future of the real estate

Cryptocurrencies are affecting the future of the real estate market. And, it’s not just a matter of people moving around in new financial vehicles. It’s also about how these vehicles will be used in the future. How will cryptocurrencies be used? What will happen to real estate? Find out in this article.

Cryptocurrencies are changing the way the market is structured

Cryptocurrencies are changing the way the market is structured by allowing for direct transactions without the need for a bank. This allows for faster and more efficient transactions, which in turn can lead to increased prices and more efficiency in the market. As cryptocurrency prices continue to rise, real estate will also likely become more affordable as investors start to invest in both industries.

The Impact of Cryptocurrencies on the Industry

Cryptocurrencies and real estate are two of the most important industries in the world. They both have a lot of potential for disruption and growth, but there are some things that need to be paid attention to before anything really happens. One of the biggest things that cryptocurrencies and real estate have in common is that they both involve transactions between people who want to buy or sell something. Cryptocurrencies can be used to purchase goods and services with cryptocurrency, or they can be used to create an online ledger of past transactions called a blockchain. The blockchain is a digital ledger that contains all the transactions ever made in a particular subject area of market research or commerce. It’s also been used to secure the integrity of digital files and prevent fraudsters from stealing information from other people. The blockchain technology can also be used to authenticate property records and ensure their accuracy. In addition, many real estate companies are using blockchain technology to streamline the process of buying and selling properties.

The Future of Cryptocurrencies and Real Estate

Cryptocurrencies and real estate are two industries that are quickly affecting each other. Cryptocurrencies are digital or virtual tokens that use cryptography to secure their transactions and to control the creation of new units. They have been used to invest in cryptocurrency platforms and to buy and sell goods and services in digital markets. The future of cryptocurrencies and real estate will depend on a number of factors, including how well they work as vehicles for investment and how well they can be accepted by the wider community. The success of cryptocurrencies will likely determine whether they become a long-term solution for investors looking for short-term gains rather than an everyday currency used for shopping or day-to-day transactions. On the other hand, the rise of real estate companies that can use cryptocurrencies to buy and sell properties will also play a role in determining which industry will dominate in the years to come.

Advantages of crypto usage within real estate market

  • Disintermediation and decentralization: probably among the most obvious advantages in using the blockchain and the crypto; in the Real Estate sector, they make transactions related to the purchase and sale between buyer and seller possible automatically without necessarily involving intermediaries. How?
  • Thanks to the logic of smart contracts that act as a “Notary” during the real estate purchase and sale procedures. In this way, the time and costs of confirming and approving the contractual clauses are drastically reduced, leading to a “win-win” situation for both buyers and sellers.
  • Another convenient aspect is the safe and transparent management of information, especially evident when more sellers and buyers are involved; often, in the real estate investment ecosystem, multiple players participate in property management.
  • Thanks to the use of smart contracts, all the parties involved have continuous access to the blockchain platform and the related contracts according to the agreed conditions, in a completely transparent and above all non-modifiable manner, thus avoiding the risk of data tampering attempts. We remind you that, thanks to this new technology, it is possible to manage and track data transactions (financial and otherwise) in a transparent, certified and above all non-alterable way.
  • The blockchain also reduces the risks and uncertainties related to trust between the parties, thanks, once again, to the use of smart contracts. As seen, only in the event that the terms and conditions are met, the agreement can be guaranteed, allowing different entities to work together without necessarily having to trust each other or to have a central authority that governs the transactions. Even the risks associated with the purchase of houses under construction (“Off Plan”) would be significantly reduced as all the steps and related procedures would be traced, in a transparent and non-alterable manner, in the blockchain so as to always be available to all actors involved in the network (real estate agents, buyers, sellers, financial institutions and so on).
  • Last factor, but certainly not least, is the simplicity of integrating the blockchain with other technologies including IoT and AR. This allows users to raise the level of customer experience through, for example, traceability solutions of the state of the property with historical annex on extraordinary and non-extraordinary maintenance, changes of ownership, monitoring of consumption associated with the home, sustainable smart charging solutions, virtual tour in AR of the property and much more; all solutions that simplify, speed up and at the same time enhance the property search procedures.
  • In short, a virtuous circle, which leads to an efficient and desirable situation for all parties involved in the Real Estate market.


Cryptocurrencies are changing the way the market is structured and will have a significant impact on the real estate industry in the near future. By understanding the different aspects of cryptocurrencies, you can better understand their impact on the industry and what steps need to be taken to ensure success.

Luxury seaside destinations: from Versilia to the French Riviera

There is no crisis or pandemic that hinder the housing market above a million euros. In fact, in this post-pandemic scenario the luxury real estate market has been marking a recovery confirming Italy as one of the most sought-after luxury destinations with buyers coming especially from the US and northern Europe. A trend that has been consolidating in the last quarter, with a figure that is almost triple compared to 2020.

The big city – tourist destination combo arouses great interest among buyers from UK, Mexico, US, Russia, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands and Sweden. Together with Rome, Milan, Florence, Venice and Naples, the most popular seaside locations are Porto Cervo, Porto Rotondo, Capri and Taormina. Nevertheless, the most sought-after are in Tuscany and Liguria.


Forte dei Marmi

At the top of the list of seaside resorts with the most expensive houses, we find the name of Forte dei Marmi, where Viale Italico in the prestigious “Roma Imperiale” occupies the fourth position in the ranking of the most expensive streets in Italy with an average of 2,880,000 euros.

Via Gabriele D’Annunzio, a few meters from the beach, also offers villas for those who demand exclusivity, comfort, privacy and security. The prestigious Villa “Orchidea”, with a surface of 570 square meters, is a true oasis of peace and tranquility. Immersed in a luxuriant garden of about 2,800 square meters, the property is equipped with a mosaic swimming pool embellished with hydromassage. The interiors are characterized by a majestic marble fireplace, bathrooms in precious onyx and design finishes. The master bedroom on the first floor offers a panoramic view of the Apuan Alps, while the basement area, accessible via the staircase or the elevator, features an aquarium, a modern design bar with wine cellars and a home theater.



Foreign investors from all over the world keep increasing in Liguria as well. They are mostly English, Swiss, French, Austrians and Germans, attracted by a pearl of rare beauty such as Portofino: made famous by the marina with its houses overlooking the sea and by the promontory of incomparable splendor.

Framed by the characteristic promontory of Portofino, this 17th century estate, originally built as a farm for the production of oils and wines, offers a very bright apartment on two living floors, decorated with typical finishes of the time. The property includes a cellar, a 4000 square meters olive grove and a series of sea views that make this property simply unique.



As for the French Riviera, the luxury real estate market remains predominant domestic market. In 2020, 1.3% of second homes were bought by people not resident in France: a figure that is decreasing if compared to 1.7% of 2010. This trend appears to continue in the same direction throughout 2022.

Price growth has been largely static on the entire Côte d’Azur in the last two years. The real estate market in this area turned out to be mainly domestic, due to the pandemic, Brexit and the war between Russia and Ukraine. In fact, most of the buyers are French and Monegasque looking for second larger homes with a contemporary design. In 2020, only 1.3% of second homes were bought by people not resident in France: a figure that is decreasing if compared to 1.7% of 2010 and appears to go in the same direction throughout 2022. This the trend is recorded not only in Saint-Tropez and its surrounding areas, but in Super Cannes and Cannes La Californie as well.

Just 5 minutes from La Croisette and the center of Cannes, this historic luxury property is a rare gem on the French Riviera, to say the least. The three-year renovation work has restored it to its former glory, while responding to the needs and expectations of a modern lifestyle: a discotheque, a cinema and a heated swimming pool are only some of the incredible amenities. Among the other hallmarks, we can find 52 Carrara marble columns creating an oval portico where a lush Wisteria intertwines. The whole, made even more special by the panoramic view of the adjacent Super Cannes hills and the sea below.


Other venues

However, it must be said that foreigners are not only fascinated by hills overlooking the sea, ancient towers and historic estates: Courmayeur, Cortina d’Ampezzo, Lake Como, Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore are confirmed as the most coveted destinations for celebs and HNWI.

In any case, those intending to buy a prestigious home in Italy generally search for the well-known “Italian taste” as a guarantee of fine quality, authenticity and a sense of style internationally praised.
