The project will be used by the country’s National Land Agency using XRP Stamp, a blockchain-based initiative that verifies and certifies digital files and records on the following XRP Ledger (XRPL) sites. The information is then stored on the blockchain. Authenticity is verified using QR codes.

Peersyst Technology expressed its gratitude to the Colombian Ministry of Information and Communication Technology and Carmen Ligia Valderrama, the minister heading the government agency, for opening Colombia’s doors to host blockchain technology, as well as for its interest in transparency.

Peersyst has a long-standing partnership with Ripple, and most of the company’s blockchain-based projects are built on the XRP blockchain. In some respects, the two companies appear to be sister companies working together to achieve common goals in the blockchain space.

To protect citizens from the dangers of Ponzi schemes?

Colombia, a Latin American country, is behind on the regulation of bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. Unlike its counterparts like Argentina, Brazil and El Salvador, which have defined regulatory premises and created a thriving environment for digital assets, Colombia just passed a bill regulating cryptocurrency exchanges.

The bill that passed the Colombian Congress early last month clarified how crypto-exchanges in the country operate in order to protect citizens from the dangers of Ponzi schemes involving cryptos. The bill is still in its early stages and is expected to go through three more discussions before being passed.

However, the lack of proper regulation has not deterred Colombians from owning or engaging with cryptocurrencies. According to Triple-A data, 6.1% of the Colombian population owned cryptocurrencies in 2021 and 80% of Colombians showed an interest in cryptos in the survey conducted.
