Recently, many people within the property rights space have been talking about blockchain and land. Only a few companies have actually completed related projects, however. The Future of Property Rights program is fortunate to welcome a number of these industry leaders, as well as representation from the World Bank, on to our panel to speak about their efforts concerning blockchain technology and land registry systems. The panel will also include a FPR staff member, as the program recently released a paper on blockchain and land.

These members of the property rights space will discuss lessons learned from past pilots concerning blockchain and land registries, as well as current thinking and future challenges.
