Thank you for everyone that joined us for our NAWRB sheCall on Wednesday, Dec. 19th, 2018. Debbie Hoffman, CEO and Co-Founder of Symmetry Blockchain Advisors, and The Visionary Leading Lady of the 2018 NAWRB Roaring Thirty Awards, was interviewed on the topic of “Bitcoin & Blockchain— Where It Fits Into the Housing Ecosystem.” Here are three important takeaways from the sheCall.

Blockchain is one of the most discussed innovations disrupting the real estate industry and others. Our listeners learned how to leverage this useful tool to help your business stand out among the competition and increase your book of business. 

  1. Don’t be afraid of the technicalities of blockchain;  learn and read about the use cases and think about how the ledger system might be applicable in your business and ecosystem.
  2. Think about the best use cases using identity, records management and supply chain – and why an immutable ledger, with a time and date stamp and difficulty to hack, with the ability to get information peer-to-peer, might make a difference in your business.
  3. Consider using blockchain in a specific area of your business – where you have much information that is transferred among various parties and in a repeated manner.  While blockchain is best used across an industry supply chain with many parties, start in one limited area and you can grow the ecosystem from there.

Debbie Hoffman is an experienced executive leader and advisor who has built and led teams in financial services, legal and compliance, and technology innovation, including blockchain, ICOs and cryptocurrency.

Along with being the CEO and Co-Founder of Symmetry Blockchain Advisors, a San Francisco-based company that guides firms in the establishment and implementation of blockchain within their operations, Debbie is also in-house counsel to Venture-Science, creator of Blockchain Technology and Business Meetup and advisor to several blockchain-based start-ups.
