Blockchain technology has become increasingly popular following the spectacular rise of Bitcoin, with proposed applications in fields as diverse as e-commerce, healthcare, real estate and even the electoral process.

However, the technology itself remains misunderstood, with misconceptions arising due to its complexity and association with Bitcoin itself. Interestingly, blockchain applications have recently found their way into the property realm and there is much interest in tapping its potential.

Unfortunately, blockchain is too closely associated with digital currencies for its own good. Hence, some approach the technology with apprehension.
