Blockchain is best known as the digital ledger platform behind Bitcoin. But now the secure, decentralized technology used to track digital currency transactions is poised to disrupt the real estate industry – and that could have big implications for government agencies. Advocates say blockchain will digitize the often lengthy and convoluted paper trail associated with real property transactions – driving down costs, improving accuracy and reducing fraud. Some believe this shift ultimately could make property transactions as quick and seamless as stock trading.

Join us Jan. 17 at 11am PST for an interactive, hour-long webinar where we’ll discuss what blockchain means for government offices that store and process property records, assess property values, collect property taxes and regulate the real estate industry. You’ll learn more about:
• What blockchain is and how it works
• How it potentially impacts your agency and community -- and how you can prepare
• Where government blockchain pilots already are underway
