The Republic of Georgia

The government of Georgia is using blockchain to register land titles and validate property-related government transactions. A custom-designed blockchain system has been integrated into the digital records system of the National Agency of Public Registry (NAPR), and anchored to the Bitcoin blockchain through a distributed digital timestamping service. The digital timestamping service allows the government to verify and sign a document containing a citizen’s essential information and proof of ownership of property. The system will boost land title transparency, reduce the prevalence of fraud, and bring significant time and cost savings in the registration process.
