  • Q: "What is BlockSTRACT?"
  • A: BlockSTRACT: A peer-to-peer blockchain-powered marketplace for abstractors as well as title production vendors, allowing for the easy integration of the abstract process, an ‘Uber’-like process of finding qualified abstractors, and recordation of abstract research onto the blockchain. BlockSTRACT is a platform/marketplace, similar to Upwork and Freelancer, whereby a title company can place a request for work and many abstractors and title production vendors can bid for the work. The system plugs into most title production software and gives the title agency real time status of the product and more once an abstractor agrees to undertake the work at the agreed upon price.

  • Q: "Who are the ideal BlockSTRACT customers and users?"
  • A: This is a two part answer. Firstly; abstractors and title production vendors who offer their services on the marketplace and secondly; title companies and agents who require their services. Title companies and agents will join the marketplace to bid on the work made available by the abstractors and title production vendors.
