"It's in the Internet, we saw it. But we went to the real office and it's not there!"

My cleaning lady complained about her husband's pension fund. What impressed me was that she gave more importance to a information that it is the Internet than some "oficial" government paper.

Maybe it's a naive idea and I'm not looking deep enough in the private property's issue, but I imagine a system of land registry initially walking side by side with the oficial registry, until people gain confidence and see coherence in the decentralized information.

The protocol divide the earth's lands in pieces (XY Coordinates, like pixels) and that can be made more divisible if needed.

Communities and buildings can use Multi-Sig functions.

I'm not seeing yet a solution for rewards/incentive in running such network other than have accurate information about who owns the land.

Another drawback is that you'll have to attach a real name (Decentralized Naming?/Pseudonym/Public Key?) to a piece of the land.

The objective is just to point who owns what, not to enforce some action to resolve disputes.

I don't even imagine the nightmare that is getting your land hacked!

Yet my thought is: Decentralize All the Things!!!

What's yours?

You guys have really come up with somethin'

I think you could do most of what you are talking about already in some way within the Namecoin blockchain.

Also you could use Ricardian contracts, like Open Transactions can create, that describe the land title (owner signatures, co-ords, etc) and store the hash of that contract in the Namecoin blockchain.

Definitely an interesting idea however wouldn't a 51% attack render it useless?

Perhaps as an incentive, and a way to gain hashing power, give out coins to buy LAND with for those who "Mine" LANDcoins.

Unfortunately this will NEVER take off in the real world since people already own land here on EARTH. It would be cool to see this in Minecraft, Second Life or any other game with "ownable" land.
