WA leading in 'Blockchain for Real Estate' Professional Education WA?

Western Australia has led the way via a collaboration between REIWA, WA’s leading certified professional development training provider for real estate, and Tecstack - a Perth based Blockchain consultancy firm, specialising in Blockchain for Real Estate education. Over the last two years, Tecstack and REIWA have certified over 500 real estate professionals in Western Australia alone. The regulator-approved courses provide agents and licensees with a comprehensive overview of the future of real estate, an introduction to real estate tokenization, and familiarize them with all things crypto, DeFi, and how blockchain could impact their daily business. The course has been approved by DMIRS - the Department of Energy, Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety.

Through this education, tokenization will become more accessible to everyone, and WA agents will have the opportunity to become early adopters, innovators, and leaders in the future of real estate.

We would also lik to thank Blocksquare's RWA regional Hub Perth members for everything you do, and special thanks to Blocksquare ambassadors Minnie Reynolds (Director TecStack Certified Partner) Karoline Kolman (Regional Chair) Jacek Korneluk, M.Sc. (Ambassador) and Blocksquare's Mitch Scott-Rogan (Marketing & Communications) for nominating Blocksquare, joining the awards ceremony and receiving this prize. This wouldn't be possible without your support and contribution.

RWA Hub Perth also runs regular events.

To explore the education available. On Thursday 20th of June at the little way cafe in Nedlands, Perth, there is a Regional Hub Meet up where you can meet some of the Ambassadors and other members and see what is available in the exciting world of tokenization.
