Abstract

Nowadays, property management with Blockchain functionalities is a state-of-the-art topic. In particular in Europe, the real (land) property law is based upon two country-oriented concepts: “(compulsory) expropriation” and “due compensation” as they projected to the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). This paper after reviewing the compulsory expropriation of real property and the relative due compensation procedures in Greece, discusses: (a) legal cases before the Greek courts regarding violations and adaptations of the ECHR; and (b) real property management issues with Blockchain functionalities in a distributed ledger environment. For this purpose, after introducing the compulsory expropriation procedure in Greece, a number of properly formulated questions are discussed, reviewed, answered, and projected both to ECHR and to upcoming Blockchain era.
