What blockchain can do for government

21 Oct, 2016 03:46 pm

While the private sector is already grappling with the opportunity presented by this rapidly emerging technology, European governments are still slow to embrace its potential.
On one level, cryptocurrencies have the ability to create alternative value transfer mechanisms, which support the localisation of services and promote sharing economies, whilst at another level blockchain technology itself can create new services and reduce the need for traditional, centralised, high-power processing platforms.

After the UK government's chief scientific officer Sir Mark Walport argued for the potential advantages of blockchain in the public sector, Capgemini releases its eGovernment Benchmark report urging Europe's governments to accelerate their push into digital platforms.
