          IMMUTABILITY & AUDITABILITY: THE CRITICAL ELEMENTS IN PROPERTY RIGHTS  REGISTRIES                Abhishek Dobhal, Matthew Regan  ad@epigraph.io          Paper prepared for presentation at the  “2016 WORLD BANK CONFERENCE ON LAND AND POVERTY”  The World Bank ­ Washington DC, March 14­18, 2016       Copyright 2016 by author(s). All rights reserved. Readers may make verbatim copies of this document  for non­commercial purposes by any means, provided that this copyright notice appears on all such  copies.    1    Abstract    Epigraph is a blockchain backed property rights management system. Purpose­built to be a  government­grade system of record for property rights that is (i) trustworthy/secure (ii) auditable and (iii)  ubiquitously accessible. Especially relevant to developing countries that lack a sociopolitical foundation  of tradition and trust.    Epigraph has identified a recipe of technology assets and methodologies that utilizes blockchain  technology to offer an original yet pragmatic solution to an old and chronic problem. A land and property  administration registry built using a blockchain backbone creates immutable operational and financial  processes, which can secure trillions of dollars in assets; resulting in an enormous social, economic and  political impact globally by fulfilling the need for transparency and accountability.           Key Words:     Auditability, Blockchain, Immutability, Property Registry, Software as a Service (SaaS)                2    Introduction  Epigraph introduces a new technology stack for securing property rights that represents a natural  convergence of our physical and digital landscape.  Establishing a trustworthy, reliable property rights  registry is challenging in developing economies due to many competing (and often unethical) interests.  This is especially true in the short term, when a foundation and tradition of trust are absent. True  immutability and auditability, beyond the reach of actors involved in operating, governing and  manipulating a property registry, have proven elusive to date. However, a system that embraces and  achieves these critical success factors has the potential to disrupt property rights registration in developing  countries and thereby significantly improve the lives of property owners and the economies in which they  live and work.     Traditional property registry software projects, generally started with the best of intentions, have routinely  failed to bring about the change they promised their constituents. The failure of these systems to effect  change can be traced to design flaws that ultimately leave them opaque to would be auditors while  making the information they store overly pliable. Added to these shortcomings is the massive capital  expenditure incurred to build and maintain these systems. Together, these factors lead to a software  platform that never becomes the system of record, but has cost the government, its creditors and its  citizens millions of dollars, and often years of missed opportunities.    Unlike these traditional software implementations, which are backed by a purely centralized data store,  Epigraph’s platform records its data using Factom, an open source, decentralized ledger secured by the  Bitcoin blockchain. Factom’s immutable ledger allows Epigraph to write property registry information,  which once written, cannot be erased. Guaranteed immutability opens the door to a software architecture  that enables and ensure auditability, as data that cannot be modified can safely be made accessible without  the risk of illicit changes. Epigraph then delivers this solution via a mobile­friendly, SaaS (Software as a  Service) architecture, eliminating the costly capital expenditures typically required to launch and operate  a property registry, while putting the application quite literally in the hands of those who need it. Game  changed.         3    The Importance of Trustworthy Property Registries  Systems for securing and managing property rights and land tenure have failed to keep pace with the  demand for land itself. Land is the most valuable resource, particularly in developing countries, where a  large portion of the population depends on it for their livelihood and where few viable alternative  instruments for storing wealth exist. As the population around the world grows, people move to cities in  search of better opportunities, significantly growing the demand for land. As a result of rising demand,  land continues to become more scarce and valuable. Increasing globalization and the need to secure  sources of food and fuel are also leading investors from around the world to developing countries in  search of available land. Inferior administrative infrastructure and antiquated practices leave the door  open for infringement of rights, particularly of the poor and vulnerable groups that own small parcels of  land. In the best case scenario legitimate transactions are delayed, and in the worst case land is  misappropriated.    Security of tenure is essential for people to feel confident about their rights to property now and in the  future (Latorre, 2015). Many international organizations have focused on securing property rights through  effective land administration, with the view that it is one of the tenets of supporting growth activities in  . ​ developing countries (MCKechnie, n.d.).​ Land rights enforced by proper registration, and well­defined  rules and regulations, benefit developing countries by:     1.

Geijsel CortesBarragan 2016 A Dishonest Election 79%

        Are we witnessing a dishonest election?    A between state comparison based on the used voting procedures    of the 2016 Democratic Party Primary for     the Presidency of the United States of America            Axel Geijsel  Tilburg University – The Netherlands      Rodolfo Cortes Barragan  Stanford University – U.S.A.      June 7, 2016         “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you  cannot fool all of the people all of the time.” ­ ​ Abraham Lincoln    “No one has yet figured out a straightforward method of ensuring that one of the most revered  democratic institutions – in this case, electing a U.S. president – can be double checked for  fraud, particularly when paperless e­voting systems are used.” ­ Larry Greenemeier, ​ Scientific  American                  Summary Statement     Given the stakes in the outcome of the​  ​ American presidential elections, ensuring the  integrity of the electoral process is of the utmost importance. Are the results we are witnessing  in the 2016 primary elections trustworthy? While Donald Trump enjoyed a clear and early edge  over his Republican rivals, the Democratic contest between former Secretary of State Hillary  Clinton and Senator Bernard Sanders has been far more competitive. At present, Secretary  Clinton enjoys an apparent advantage over Sanders. Is this claimed advantage legitimate? We  contend that it is not, and suggest an explanation for the advantage: States that are at risk for  election fraud in 2016 systematically and overwhelmingly favor Secretary Clinton. We provide  converging evidence for this claim.     First, we show that it is possible to detect irregularities in the 2016 Democratic Primaries  by comparing the states that have hard paper evidence of all the placed votes to states that do  not have this hard paper evidence. Second, we compare the final results in 2016 to the  discrepant exit polls. Furthermore, we show that no such irregularities occurred in the 2008  competitive election cycle involving Secretary Clinton against President Obama. As such, we  find that in states wherein voting fraud has the highest potential to occur, systematic efforts may  have taken place to provide Secretary Clinton with an exaggerated margin of support.      Different outcomes in primary states with paper trails and without paper trails     Data procurement​ : Given the potential that the underlying voting number has been corrupted,  we had to restrict our analysis to a proxy: the percentage of delegates won by Secretary Clinton  and Senator Sanders. To group states according to the accountability of the vote, we used  Ballotpedia and created two groups. First, there are 18 states that feature voting procedures  wherein the accuracy of electoral results of a primary ballot vote are backed by a paper trail.  Second, there are 13 states that do not have such a paper trail.     Analysis​ : ​ The [​ data​ ] show a statistically significant difference between the groups. States  without paper trails yielded higher support for Secretary Clinton, (M ​  = 65.13%, SD = ​ no paper trail​ no   = 10.41%) than states with paper trails (M ​  = 48.53%, SD = ​  = 16.00%), t(29)  paper trail​ paper trail​ paper trail​ = 3.21, P = 0.003,  d = 1.19 [Figure 1]. As such, the potential for election fraud in voting  procedures is strongly related to enhanced electoral outcomes for Secretary Clinton. In the  Appendix, we show that this relationship holds even above and beyond alternative explanations,  including the prevailing political ideology and the changes in support over time.     Supplemental analysis on caucus states:​  Does the pattern seen in ballot states occur in caucus  states? By the very nature of caucusing procedures, caucus results are generally thought to be  more trustworthy. However, in the current Democratic caucusing cycle, Iowa and Nevada had  caucuses widely alleged to have involved a considerable level of voter suppression and  potential fraud. We examined the [​ data​ ] and found that these two states had far higher support  for Secretary Clinton, [M ​  = 54.71%, SD = ​  = 3.44%] than the other caucus  fraud allegations​ fraud allegation​ states, [M ​  = 31.61%, SD = ​ = 9.98%], t ​  (11) = 3.13, P =  no fraud allegations​ no fraud allegations ​ independent­means​ 0.009, d = 3.10.    Anomalies exist between exit polls and final results    Data procurement​ : We obtained exit poll data from a ​ database​  kept by an expert on the  American elections.      Analysis​ : On the overall, are the exit polls different from the final results? Yes they are. The ​ data  show lower support for Secretary Clinton in exit polls than the final results would suggest, [M ​ exit   = 54.38%, SD = ​  = 13.95%; M ​  = 57.52%, SD = ​ = 13.87%], t ​  (23) = 3.49, P =  exit​ final​ final ​ dependent­means​ 0.002, d = 0.71.​  ​ While an effect size of 0.71 is quite substantial, and suggests a considerable  difference between exit polls and outcomes, we expected that this difference would be even  more exaggerated in states without paper voting trails. Indeed, the effect size in states without  paper voting trails is considerably larger: 1.50, and yields more exaggerated support for the  Secretary in the hours following the exit polls [M ​  = 62.93%, SD = ​  = 8.80%; M ​  = 65.68%,  exit​ exit​ final​ SD = ​ = 9.52%], t ​  (9) = 4.68, P < 0.001. In contrast, the effect size is much smaller  final ​ dependent­means​ in states with paper trails, [M ​  = 48.28%, SD = ​  = 13.94%; M ​  = 51.69%, SD = ​ =  exit​ exit​ final​ final ​ 13.77%], t ​  (13) = 2.27, P = 0.04, d = 0.58.  dependent­means​   Irregularities are unique to 2016    To show that the pattern of votes may suggest a systematic effort to undercut Senator Sanders,  we must show that no such patterns were in place in similar elections. Given that Secretary  Clinton lost to President Obama in 2008, their data is a natural control and the best possible  point of comparison for the 2016 data. Thus, as we did for 2016, we tabulated the percentage of  delegates won in each state by (then Senator) Hillary Clinton. The ​ data​  show that, contrary to  the 2016 data, there is no evidence that primary states without paper trails favored Senator  Clinton in 2008, P = 0.38. As such, the patterns of 2016 are different from their best point of  comparison.     Conclusion    Are we witnessing a dishonest election? Our first analysis showed that states wherein the voting  outcomes are difficult to verify show far greater support for Secretary Clinton. Second, our  examination of exit polling suggested large differences between the respondents that took the  exit polls and the claimed voters in the final tally. Beyond these points, these irregular patterns  of results did not exist in 2008. As such, as a whole, these data suggest that election fraud is  occurring in the 2016 Democratic Party Presidential Primary election. This fraud has  overwhelmingly benefited Secretary Clinton at the expense of Senator Sanders.         Figure 1. Percent of support for Clinton and Sanders by state voting paper trail  status.
