The government of Colombia announced a new system that will allow it to use the Ripple Ledger to store and authenticate property titles. The system, which was developed by a third-party company called Peersyst Technology, aims to allow the National Land Agency to issue a record number of land adjudications for citizens.
While the main uses of blockchain technology are currently linked to assets with transactional value, like cryptocurrencies, there are companies and governments leveraging it for other uses. The government of Colombia will use the underlying blockchain of the XRP asset, the Ripple Ledger, to assist in the issuance of land titles in the country.
The solution has been implemented for AgenciaTierras is based on xrpstamp which allows to register digital assets on XRPL and verify their authenticity with QRCode.
This means that the new system will allow for the issuance of land-related documents and verification of their authenticity without requiring third parties for the process.
The project includes the Ripple-based solution to help normalize the status of many land owners that still don’t have papers to certify their ownership over the land they inhabit. In this sense, Peersyst Technology announced that this solution aims to certify more than 100,000 land adjudications in a short term, to guarantee confidence in the solution adopted by Colombia.
