Blockchain has been synonymous with crypto currencies for some time but its range of applications and roles in the wider digital transformation are now much more fully understood.

Drooms is moving its virtual data room (VDR) offering into the Blockchain age. As Europe’s leading VDR provider for the UK, Drooms is using this modern technology to enhance the security of transaction data archives. Until now, all data has been stored on physical data carriers following completion of a transaction. But now it can be archived in Drooms’ virtual NXG data room with blockchain protection. As a result, the secured data cannot be lost, is non-manipulable and is accessible to all parties involved in a transaction at any time. Any warranty issues or necessary contract checks can be carried out quickly and problem-free via the data room after a transaction has been completed. As such, the application of Blockchain archiving makes a VDR an ideal tool for solicitors and notaries.

New research published by Drooms, the provider of virtual data rooms in Europe, has found that the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in real estate transactions is increasing despite perceived barriers such as a lack of relevant skills to implement AI technology.
The terms fintech and proptech are bandied around a lot these days. Indeed many would agree that their free and almost interchangeable use has made the terms into something of a cliché. However, buzz words and their exact definition aside, the increasing role technology is playing in industry shows no signs of dissipating.
The financial services industry has understood the potential hidden in applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for some time. Of the 5,000 FinTech start-ups identified by a 2016 report by Ernst & Young, a large number are set to bring intelligence to a banking world that often lacks innovation.
