Fair disclosure: I am entirely unqualified to answer the above question. In fact, I had never heard of blockchain technology until this morning when I read a blog entry by my friend, John Cunningham, with a link to an article discussing four technological innovations that may affect the legal profession.

I do, however, know a little about real property records.
