Blockchain Demo

Blockchain Demo

Welcome to Gardena, CA!

The center of industrial real estate for Los Angeles.

I’m Jim Klein and today I will show you, how to use the blockchain to send and receive files, decentrally among trusted parties.

Let’s go inside.

Here’s how it works. We input the address of the property on the top line. In this case, it’s 19475 Gramercy Pl, Torrance, CA. It’s a 47,000 ft manufacturing, industrial storage building. Contact ID is where we can put the user’s email or a customer number that we generate. We include the file and we press go.

After pressing go the program creates a QR code and a link that I can send to the customer. Only parties who have the link or code can open the file. It records on the blockchain to serve as proof.

With the link you can either click on it or put it in your browser, and the file is transmitted to the party you want to send.

My first use case is offmarket industrial real estate. Meta tags can be used to search the blockchain by keyword.

I’m asking for your help to expand the project and make more deals together. Thank you to the innovation committee and you watching.

I learn from the best brokers and owner/developers in the industry. There are deals to make and I will see longtime friends. The 4th reason this year is to show how blockchain finds more industrial building deals.

2022 Continues – Severe Space Shortages

2022 Continues – Severe Space Shortages

potential 240,000 square foot lease deal near LAX

Acute space shortages are national news. Not only here in Los Angeles, where it’s about the worst, but all over the United States. Many tenants are being caught short and others are taking space far in advance, at greater amounts, and at much higher cost. Price bidding leads landlords to weigh credit, use, and history. Credit is the most important enhancement because it notably increases the value of buildings. Larger landlords also favor tenants that will lease multiple buildings across their national holdings.

Are You Decentralized?

Are You Decentralized?

More real estate opportunities are popping up on decentralized platforms than ever before. Take for instance Los Angeles. There are more industrial buildings sold “off-market” than on. Industrial real estate has always had a decentralized component. Brokers find a good lead. They shop it first to their best clients off-market, decentralized. And if unsuccessful, put it on the market, on a central, MLS-type server for all to search and see. The difference today is that blockchain and cryptography is an electronic evolution that will give customers new ways to profit from their real estate.

Week of June 25 – Need For Space

The industrial market during the Covid-19 period, now edging back to normality, is a lesson on disruption. The most visible example are container ships backed into the sea and unable to unload goods because there is not enough dock space available at the ports. It is the same at warehouses and container yards: too many products and not enough space.

An Overview of Properties on a Map

Most of us have experience with basic spreadsheet packages, databases, and CRMs like Excel, Access, or Salesforce. These are common examples of machine learning. More complicated are the advanced expressions that computer scientists write for high finance trading. All rely on search, update, replace, and other basic commands. By setting up procedures and calculations that process your property information, you too can start gaining valuable machine knowledge to make more deals. We’ll be discussing more about this in person during the TransACT 360 Tech Committee’s Program, “Collaborative Innovation”, on April 30 in Indian Wells, Calif.
