Colombia enlists Ripple Labs to put land deeds on the blockchain

Colombia’s government has partnered with Ripple Labs, the company behind thecryptocurrency XRP, to put land titles on the blockchain. This is intended to rectify landdistribution efforts so unfair they’ve led to decades of armed conflict.The project, built by blockchain development company Peersyst Technology and Ripple,will permanently store and authenticate property titles on Ripple’s Ledger - its publicblockchain.“The point is that land is important in Colombia, so a system is needed that ensures landcannot be wrongfully taken,” said Peersyst Technology CEO Ferran Prat. “Putting theinformation into a public blockchain that cannot be changed or altered will help.”Many land owners in Colombia still don’t have papers to certify ownership over parcelsthey inhabit, Ripple Labs added. The project will start by certifying more than 100,000 landadjudications.“With the public blockchain, once the transaction is recorded, it can never be deleted,”added Antony Welfare, a senior adviser at Ripple Labs. “That’s the most important part. Ifthe government system is blown up, the owner of the land will still be in a blockchainbecause it is held around the world in different nodes.”

SEC Chairman publishes a video on regulating Crypto trading platforms

U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Chairman Gary Gensler published avideo Thursday explaining how the securities watchdog plans to regulate cryptoexchanges and provide investor protection.Gensler noted that crypto platforms serve “millions, sometimes tens of millions” of retailcustomers directly buying and selling crypto assets without going through a broker. “Withso many retail customers trading on crypto platforms, we should make sure that thoseplatforms offer similar protections” to traditional security platforms.He added, “So I’ve asked our staff to work directly with the platforms to get themregistered and regulated to ensure that those crypto tokens come in as well and registerwhere appropriate as securities.”In conclusion, the SEC chairman stressed: “There’s no reason to treat the crypto marketdifferently just because a different technology is used. That would be like saying drivers ofelectric cars don’t need seat belts because they don’t use gas.”
