     Recording at County Courthouses is governed by Florida Statutes.  I don't think Florida Law allows for blockchain... yet.

our closings are handled by attorneys, not title companies.... the banks require title insurance and it's always recommended that the buyer purchase a title insurance policy...one time payment....  that's as much as I'm familiar with....

I would imagine it would have to be notarized.  All deeds in CA related to real estate must now include a thumbprint at time of Acknowledgment.

Have used block and tackle to get a stuck in the mud real estate sale up and moving toward the closing. No blockchain sales yet with bitcoin. Have done trading properties (usually land), 1031 exchanges and had one pacifist couple not wanting to generate taxes for Uncle Sam from the sale perform some abracadabra hocus pocus fine print legal maneuvers in a transfer. Avoiding taxes  that they said only helped finance the war machine.

Not in NH, closings can be conducted by an attorney or title company, the title or cosing company must be managed by a NH lawyer though. Recording is done by them upon closing

Not in my little piece of Florida.

When other states and tax authorities realize they can keep all the tax dollars and provide full service PASSIVELY via block chain, their greed will drive the change.  Just like their GREED led the charge for all those red light camera companies creating PASSIVE income for cities.

In regards to this industry, the closing statements were the shot across the bow..."It is better to disrupt yourself than to be disrupted."

And of course we all know Rupert Murdock has been investing heavily in block chain. I doubt he does it for entertainment. With holding like Berkshire Hathaway and Realtor.com there just might be a strategy in play.
