Web3 is coming and it will revolutionize the internet and how we transact business in all aspects of our lives.

In the student housing arena, technologies like blockchain and smart contracts can offer digital credentialing, making the real estate process faster, more efficient, and even more secure.

But, like with all new technologies, many new terminologies are being bandied about, with more questions than answers.
