Wyoming county to put land records on blockchain

posted 3 months ago
A county in Wyoming is planning to put its land registry on a distributed ledger. Teton County (pop. 23,265 ), which includes part of Yellowstone National Park. The new system will keep track of land transactions, such as mortgages, releases of liens and similar records, starting from 1996, adding existing privacy protections and public access will be preserved.

“We are proud to see Wyoming lead the way in implementing cutting-edge technologies, such as blockchain, into existing markets like land registry,” Sherry Daigle, Teton County’s County Clerk said, adding that if the new system succeeds, it can be expanded into other Wyoming counties.
