After completing a successful audit with ConsenSys Diligence last week, we are another step closer to releasing the imbrex Alpha; a major milestone that signifies a new era in the way we transact real estate. Soon agents, brokers, firms and landlords will have the ability market their real estate listings world-wide without giving up control of their data to third party data providers. After two and a half years of building, breaking, rebuilding, and pitching we couldn’t be more excited for what lies ahead.

Over the course of the next year we will launch several exciting features, including imbrex’s User Curation Contract and Escrow Commons. Launching on MainNet is just the first step in the next development phase as we continue to push the technological boundaries in web 3 innovation. To reach our upcoming objectives we expanded the team with four new bright minds. These individuals are challenging our ideas and adding a fresh perspective to development and testing. Please join us in welcoming Edouard, Kyle, James, and Lauren!
