She is regularly invited to speak worldwide as an expert in Blockchain, Real Estate and Fintech. As a speaker at BLOCKCHANCE Europe 2021, we asked her some questions about the future and got inspiring answers.
What must happen for the blockchain to improve our future?
In order for Blockchain to improve our future, there must be wider adoption of this disruptive technology among large corporations and a wider variety of asset classes. We also need to build trust among the stakeholders as well as create regulations that will encourage privacy-centric, public and permissionless transactions.
How do you think the financial sector will develop over the next few years?
We are moving towards finance 2.0 where individuals will be the custodians of their own finances; in essence they will become their own banks. They’ll have the ability to conduct peer-to-peer financial transactions, bypassing the banks and other large institutions that use our personal information as bargaining chips. Being able to bank the unbanked will democratize the new decentralized financial system.
What will the world look like in 10 years?
There is so much that has to happen in order for us to conserve the earth, help end sickness, create more equality within society, and curb mental health illness. I am a positive person and so I believe that within this next decade we will find solutions to most of these problems. In addition, where we’ll really see developments are in the virtual world. Perhaps, within ten years, the metaverse will be fully realized which will allow us to perform many more reality-based activities online as we hop from virtual world to virtual world with our avatars.
How do you gain confidence for the future?
I am confident that the future holds great promise. We started SolidBlock with the quest to make real estate investing accessible to everyone. Because those who depend on cash rather than wealth-maintaining assets will always be disadvantaged. Our vehicle to impact the future is SolidBlock.
What motivates you to be a speaker at BLOCKCHANCE Europe 2021?
SolidBlock’s mission is to bridge the world of traditional asset finance with DeFi. Ultimately, everyone should have the option to invest and grow wealth in real estate and other real world assets the same way it’s done in crypto. And we truly believe that in the near future every investable asset will be on the blockchain. In order to make this happen, it is extremely important to educate about blockchain and create a broad, open ecosystem. The Blockchance conference offers me that opportunity to further our goals.
