[4:48] As mentioned above you’ve founded a startup that specializes in Real Estate & Crypto.
First off can you talk about what a security token is in crypto?
●            Securities are well understood as stocks, bonds etc.
●          ICO’s appeared over the last few years and companies started making money off these as tokens. Companies were able to use these tokens as a means to create funding of working capital.
●            Companies started using ICOs to avoid disclosures and protections offered by typical securities.
●            Tokens allow a huge amount of liquidity
●            Leverages benefits of blockchain and is governed by the SEC/other regulatory bodies

[8:26] In traditional housing, you’ll apply for a home loan from the bank and based on your credit profile and down payment the bank will lend you money. How is crypto disrupting this space?
●            QuantmRE allows people to unlock the value of their homes without taking on more debt
●            If you have equity in a home, you can get paid cash for the equity
●            Ultimately it comes down to trust
●            Fund structured as REIT

[17:9] What makes the transaction enforceable? What’s to stop me from “selling” a part of my home and then disappearing? Visa versa, for the investor how do I know what I’m investing in is real?
●            Traditional mechanisms are used to enforce, Matthew’s team has been involved in Real Estate for many years

[19:5] Do you think we’re going to see a shift from traditional funding sources to crypto with respect to real estate? Who actually owns the title of the property?
●            Separate crypto from blockchain, blockchain creates a layer of truth
●            The home owner remains on title
