Founded as a portfolio firm of Medici Ventures, Overstock’s blockchain technology accelerator, in 2018, MLG aims to assist individuals all over the globe in connecting with the world economy by utilizing blockchain and other technologies to help record rightful property ownership.
It is MLG’s second MOU with an African country to build a blockchain-based platform to manage property rights and land governance.
According to a press release CoinReport received from Method Communications, Medici Ventures’ PR firm, this latest MOU will see MLG implementing its technology to move Rwanda to a corruption-proof, paperless, blockchain-based, secure land governance system.
MLG will assist the government of Rwanda in incorporating blockchain and other technologies into its current systems, creating a paperless system that utilizes electronic signatures and digital lodging of surveys for the administrative processes that affect land transfers and rights. This system will allow for more direct communication among government entities and private landowners, using the distributed and decentralized blockchain to make sure transfer of assets and records are secure.
Rwandan officials will also get help from MLG to improve current land governance procedures, including streamlining the connections among the related courts, government registries and public institutions. Moreover, MLG will develop interfaces with Rwanda’s tax authorities and the present land administration information system of the country to make certain workflows are smooth and to minimize and eradicate processing delays.
Strategies for the project’s full scope include creating a blockchain-based platform with mobile capabilities, including payments. The project will accommodate simplified data collection and regulations to help government decisions regarding land use and city planning.
