Several courts in China have implemented blockchain technology to create a way to protect properties by E-sealing.
E-sealing basically works through a panel-shaped device that uses an Immediate Edge and cloud-based technology. The seal is printed on the panel, which contains cameras and small screens, and can be placed on the front of the property for increased surveillance.
The Executive Council of the People’s Court in Haidian District, Beijing, reportedly developed a blockchain-based electronic seal to monitor a property in Chaoyang District.

Specifically, if property is invaded or damaged, the blockchain system automatically activates the surveillance mode and sends mobile warning notices to plaintiffs and law enforcement personnel. According to the report, the system is also capable of taking a photograph of the perpetrator and sending it to the appropriate platform.
Apparently, the use of blockchain technology is intended to keep all data recorded and not modified by the parties involved. Law enforcement personnel can use the platform to perform property information inquiries to verify the trading history on the sealed property.

First Beijing court to develop this technology
As originally reported by Chinacourt.org, the local website related to the courts, this development marks the first time a Beijing court has used an electronic seal to protect property. However, other courts in China’s eastern Jiangsu province, Hunan province and Jiangxi province have also recently announced the use of electronic blockchain-based seals.
Previously, Cointelegraph reported that in the second quarter of 2019, more than 3.1 million cases of litigation in China were resolved through so-called „Internet courts“ of blockchain and IA. According to Zhang Wen, president of the Beijing Internet Court, the implementation of blockchain technology helps to collect and provide evidence in the cases, as well as foster the development of social credibility in the country.
