CEO & Co-Founder of RealT
Remy Jacobson personifies the currency he evangelizes—permissionless, innovative, and visionary. When he first discovered Bitcoin, it was the answer to his Libertarian schoolboy dreams. Remy’s appetite for disruption was evident early on. At age 16, he turned his back on the educational system that failed to engage his intellect and nascent entrepreneurial spirit and went to work for his father in the investment industry. There, he cultivated a deep understanding of the global financial ecosystems and institutions whose paradigm of wealth he was born to challenge. He began to focus his energies on real estate, buying and developing commercial and residential properties in the US and Canada. In 2011, he founded J-Cube Development with the aim of ensuring high returns for stakeholders and revitalizing historically disinvested neighborhoods. Remy created community spaces while renovating rental units, foregoing ground floor rents to build environments for people to gather and connect, nurture their dreams, and transform their circumstances. Remy was a blockchain early adopter. In 2011, he founded one of the first commercial Bitcoin mines—Liquid Bits—at a time when Bitcoin was the subject of derision and fear. He became a Bitcoin evangelist, on a grassroots mission to demystify crypto technologies and expand the scope of decentralized finance.In 2013, Remy began building the non-profit Bitcoin Embassy in Montreal with his brother Jean-Marc. A first-of-its-kind brick-and-mortar establishment, the Bitcoin Embassy was a tangible landmark that helped a skeptical community embrace an intangible concept. The building enabled Bitcoin innovators to come together as a community and served as both a startup incubator and a global example promoting the use of a new peer-to-peer currency—one divested of government control and designed to give barrierless access to previously closed asset classes. In 2019, Remy and Jean-Marc founded RealT, a groundbreaking platform for tokenized real estate operating at the intersection of their knowledge of real estate, blockchain, and a core belief in the right of all individuals to own property. By building a platform for tokenized real estate on the blockchain and embracing its inherent transparency, the Jacobson’s have created a frictionless platform for a new and innovative real estate ownership experience. Remy remains dedicated to furthering the integration of Blockchain and DeFi into the traditional real estate ecosystem to embrace the full potential of an accessible, autonomous, and transparent liquid blockchain backed value-exchange.
Michael is a real estate entrepreneur and real estate tokenization pioneer who is an expert in retail real estate investment, redevelopment and real estate on the blockchain.
