[CUBE NEWS] Seoul City to Invest 1.2 Million Dollars in Building Smart City | 서울시, 스마트 시티 조성에 1조 4000억원 투자

Seoul City is expected to transform itself into a smart city with 50,000 IoT sensors operated by 2022. On April 13, Seoul Mayor Won-soon Park announced his plan to invest 1.4 trillion won (≒ 1.2 million USD) by 2022 to create a smart city.
The core of smart city stressed by Mayor Park Won-soon on the same day is big data. The plan was to expand to 'smart administration' that collects urban data with 50,000 IoT sensors and establishes optimal policies for citizens' needs. In particular, the company said it will also establish a 'private, and public big data platform' by 2020 for joint use with private big data companies such as finance, distribution, portals and telecommunications.

In the transportation sector, the company will introduce 'IoT Shared Parking System' that checks whether a car can be parked in real time with IoT technology, including the world's first 5G Converged Self-driving Test Bed, and 'AI Taxi' service that connects drivers an…

[CUBE NEWS] Blockchain Technology to be Introduced for the First Time in Real Estate Transaction Systems Starting Next Year | 내년부터 전자정부, 부동산 거래시스템에 블록체인 기술 첫 도입

The Ministry of Public Administration of Korea and Security and the Korea Information Society Agency announced that they will introduce blockchain in real estate transaction systems directly related to the people's property rights starting next year. Officials say they have prepared new e-government services to improve the administration of paper certificates, which are issued about 200 million times a year, and to prevent any kind of forgery or tampering in the transaction process.
‘Real Estate Public Book System’ is a comprehensive real estate information record/storage of land and building owners, land use, regulations, and real estate prices. In 2017, nearly 200 million certificates were issued. In the process, there were cases of forgery and alteration of paper certificates and cases of abuse of real estate crimes, and while looking for a solution, a comprehensive real estate public book system based on blockchain was established.

The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport said it will spend 30 billion won over four years to develop a blockchain-based real estate public book system, benchmarking the blockchain-based real estate transaction system under way by Sweden's 400-year-old real estate registration office.

"As the financial sector, mobile and IT companies are focusing on developing blockchain-based technology grafting systems, we are pleased to hear the news of the introduction of blockchain-based technology by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport and the Ministry of Public Administration and Security," said a Cube Intelligence official. "If related technologies continue to be developed in the future, we will be able to get a green light on the development of blockchain-related technologies and systems."

행정안전부와 한국정보화진흥원이 내년부터 국민의 재산권과 직결되는 부동산 거래시스템에 블록체인을 도입한다고 발표했습니다. 관계자는 한 해 약 2억건 발급되는 종이증명서 중심 행정을 개선하고, 거래 과정에서의 각종 위/변조를 방지하고자 새로운 전자정부 서비스를 준비하게 됐다고 하는데요.

부동산 공부시스템이란 토지와 건축물의 소유자, 토지 이용과 규제 사항, 부동산 가격 등 부동산 종합정보를 기록/저장한 것으로, 지난 2017년 한 해에만 약 2억 건 가까이 부동산 증명서가 발급됐습니다. 그 과정에서 종이증명서의 위/변조 사례, 각종 부동산 범죄에 악용되는 사례들이 발생해 해결 방법을 찾던 중 블록체인 기반의 부동산 종합공부시스템이 마련하게 된 건데요.

국토부와 행안부는 이번 블록체인 기반의 부동산 종합공부시스템 개발을 위해 4년간 300억원의 예산을 책정, 400년의 역사를 갖고 있는 스웨덴 부동산 등기청이 추진 중인 블록체인 기반 부동산 거래시스템을 벤치마킹해 개발을 진행하겠다고 밝혔습니다.

이번 발표 소식을 들은 큐브 인텔리전스 관계자는 최근 금융권을 비롯해 모바일, IT 기업에서 블록체인 기반 기술 접목 시스템 개발에 집중하고 있는 상황에서 국토부와 행정안전부의 블록체인 기반 기술 도입 소식이 반갑다앞으로 관련 기술 개발이 지속된다면 큐브에서 진행 중인 블록체인 관련 기술과 시스템 개발에 있어서도 청신호가 밝혀질 것이다며 소감을 전했습니다
