Final Year Project

Title: Permissioned Distributed Ledgers for Land Transactions

It is a well-known fact that Sri Lanka does not have a sufficiently effective and efficient land registration system. Most of the countries in the world have turned attention towards replacing traditional land registries with “Blockchain based land registries”, due to the added value of cryptographic auditability (Blockchain is a type of DLT). Through this project, it is intended to provide a “Permissioned Distributed Ledger” solution for the Sri Lankan land transaction scenario. The practical large scale solution, would be systematically evaluated for performance in terms of transactional throughput, with respect to scalability and fault-tolerance factors.
