ChromaWay in 2020
- A brief summary on a different year
Even though the ChromaWay team had a decent year, it would be inappropriate to regard 2020 as a good year, considering the state of the world. Let’s call it a productive one.
We were able to maintain our ground in the land registry projects and made some great developments in introducing new features and dapps based on our relational blockchain platform Chromia (notice the separate recap for Chromia). What’s more, we entered into some exciting joint-ventures and were recognized for ending up high in polls and rankings in the media.
Notables from 2020
Real estate and land registry projects
The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) funded project, “Distributed Ledger Technology: The Future of Land Titling and Registry”, entered its second phase with the launch of LAC PropertyChain initiative.

ChromaWay’s participation in governmental development
ChromaWay supports Swedish Land Registry Agency and the Agency for Digital Government on Swedish governmental assignment
ChromaWay acted as a sounding board to the Agency for Digital Government and the Swedish Land Registry Agency on a Swedish government assignment on how to test new technology, such as AI and blockchain, on automatisation for the public sector. The mission was to create a “system of trust” within the public sector governmental processes with maintained or enhanced quality and with a higher degree of transparency using emerging technologies.

US Air ForceAFWERX Challenge finalists
ChromaWay was selected as one of 30 finalists to participate in the 2019-2020 AFWERX Challenge. AFWERX is the technology innovation arm of the US Air Force. Formed in 2017, they act as a catalyst for agile Air Force engagement across industry, academia and non-traditional contributors to create transformative opportunities and foster an Air Force culture of innovation.
ChromaWay was later approved by the US Government to do business with civilian agencies and military services (SAM, System for Award Management).
