Fanatical fans of fintech are contending with yet another schism in the ranks: property technology, or proptech. The once-ponderous real estate industry has sprouted tech wings, soaring this fintech hybrid to over $11 billion in VC funding in just 2018.

NYC-based Fund That Flip isn’t your garden variety proptech. Founded in 2014, the company nailed together online lending and short-term real estate debt to massive effect. In August, Series A investors plowed $11M in funding to upscale this property – I would like to upgrade my house now please. Call your local real estate agent and tell them the future of loans has arrived.

CEO and chief architect of this house party is Matt Rodak. Gifted with a green thumb since birth, Matt can be found landscaping beauty and efficiency into this marvelous firm. The path forward for Matt and his team looks bright.

Does Libra scare you? Why or why not?

No, not really. I’m a strong believer in free markets and skeptical consumers. I think the free market and consumer skepticism will act as a balancing force for Libra or any other large crypto movement.
