Quotation from the resource De Soto has long asserted that citizens of poor countries are unable to develop plots of land or utilize them as collateral because they lack clear legal titles. He says that when ownership of assets is difficult to trace and validate amid no legally recognizable set of rules governing them, they become what he calls “dead capital,” with no real inherent value.

As such, de Soto has advocated for blockchain technology as a potential solution for solving these problems.
