As we look ahead, the next 12 months promise to be transformative for Ubitquity. Our primary focus will be on leveraging the capabilities of XDC to revolutionize our title services.
Here's a detailed roadmap of our aspirations:
Comprehensive Workflow Integration on XDC: Our foremost objective is to transition and build out Ubitquity's entire company workflow on the XDC platform. This move is not just about adopting a new technology; it's about harnessing the power of decentralization to make our processes more efficient, secure, and transparent. By doing so, we aim to provide our clients with faster, more reliable title services that are in tune with the digital age.
Full Integration of NFTitle: NFTitle, our proprietary service, will undergo a complete integration within the XDC framework. This integration will ensure that our BaaS for title and other real estate verticals are not only more streamlined but also benefit from the enhanced security and scalability features that XDC offers. By fully integrating NFTitle on XDC, we aim to set new industry standards for title management, ensuring that property transactions are smoother and more trustworthy than ever before.
Ubitquity API Expansion for UbitquityPay: Recognizing the increasing demand for seamless digital payment solutions, we plan to expand our Ubitquity API specifically for UbitquityPay and XDC. This expansion will focus on enhancing user experience, increasing transaction speeds, and ensuring top-notch security. By doing so, we aim to provide our clients and partners with a versatile payment gateway that can handle a wide range of transactions, from property purchases to service fees, with unparalleled ease and efficiency which will utilize XDC's cryptocurrency.
Widely Adopted: Recognized as the leading go-to platform for web3 title services in the global real estate industry, with a significant user base.
Expanded Offerings: Beyond just title services, we aim to introduce additional features like property history tracking, on-chain NFT home purchasing (prospective buyer must purchase a real estate property and title it as a single-purpose Limited Liability Company - LLC via our NFT My Home™ add-on to NFTitle), integration with mortgage services, and more.
Global Reach: While starting in specific regions, we aim to expand our services globally, catering to different property markets worldwide.
Community-Driven Development: With a year of feedback and suggestions, the NFTitle platform will have seen multiple iterations, each making it more aligned with user needs.
Strategic Partnerships: Having established collaborations with major real estate agencies, title/escrow, insurance underwriters, law firms, and possibly even governmental bodies (i.e. county recording/land records offices) related to property registration.
In summary, the next 12 months for Ubitquity are all about growth, innovation, and setting new benchmarks in the real estate title industry. By fully embracing the capabilities of XDC and continuously refining our services, we are poised to redefine how property titles are managed in the digital era.
