Snapper Future Tech: Land Records and Registration Using Blockchain
(6 pages of text)
On October 10, 2017, the co-founders of Snapper Future Tech Private Limited (Snapper) were discussing the solutions they had proposed at a recent blockchain business conference. Snapper’s initiative envisaged digital solutions for smooth land registration, adding transparency, accountability, and good governance at every stage of the process. Snapper had developed a proof of concept for land records on a private blockchain in a cloud-based environment. Its live demonstration of the proposal was well received by the conference attendees; the challenge was whether the government would consider the solution and engage on a long-term basis with the company for blockchain solutions in land registrations. Would Snapper’s journey be acknowledged in the annals of the country’s digital revolution?
The case broadly covers a conceptual understanding of blockchain and its applications, thereby providing an analysis of its benefits through process re-engineering. After working through the case and assignment questions, students will be able to do the following:
- Analyze blockchain technologies and their application in land record and registration systems.
- Discuss whether adoption of blockchain technologies results in better contract formation and enforcement.
- Examine the direct and indirect effects that blockchain-enabled solutions have for various stakeholders.
- Examine how blockchain-enabled solutions can improve process efficiency to promote good governance.
