Propy, a California-based blockchain startup, announced that it is partnering with the city of South Burlington, Vermont, to use blockchain technology to record real estate conveyance documents. The goal will be to do away with hard copy registry altogether and enhance efficiency because, under the current system, it is necessary to drive to South Bulrington to do a title search. Of course, carried to its ultimate conclusion, if land registry records were entirely on the blockchain, title insurance would no longer be necessary, nor would the jobs of many people who work for county clerks and other land registry offices.
