Welcome to the Mortgage Industry Subgroup


To foster sustainable, inclusive communities through efficient, fair, and quality mortgage lending around the globe. 


To securely close home loans as efficiently as an auto loan while delivering a superior digital customer experience.  


To educate mortgage lenders, vendor partners, investors, real estate records custodians, and government agencies around the globe of production-ready blockchain technologies that support the global housing mission of creating sustainable, inclusive communities through efficient, fair, and quality mortgage lending.  


The Mortgage Industry Subgroup (MIS) is a global community who will focus on technical and business-level challenges within the Mortgage Industry and on developing applicable use cases for blockchain technology.  The Subgroup will bring together business, technical, academic, and industry-related expertise to work together on blockchain education, use case identification, POCs and production implementations. 

At the heart of financial services is trust and, as an industry, we rely on our technology to record the truth of each transaction. The life cycle of a mortgage has a complex framework, involving many entities, for example originators, servicers, investors, regulators, and a vast ecosystem of vendors and service providers.  This complexity creates trust issues and transparency challenges with no clear mechanism to track end-to-end activities of every entity.  Each party must maintain their own independent database of customer information, loan transactions, and third party information.  Data must be validated, re-validated and financial transactions need to be reconciled with third parties. Blockchain can address many issues in the lifecycle of a mortgage with its decentralized and distributed ledger technology, with trustless operability, that is immutable and auditable.


  • Promote blockchain education for the mortgage industry participants across business, technical to government agencies and vendor/service partners
  • Identify specific opportunities where the application of blockchain technologies can meaningfully advance the state of the mortgage industry
  • Provide a foundation for real-world use case identification, blockchain technology alignment, and operational validation of technology fit for purpose
  • Serve as an open channel of communication between the membership of this Special Interest Group and the leadership of Hyperledger to inform leadership on prospective improvements of Hyperledger frameworks and toolsets, within the context of the mortgage industry
