The relationship between the people and the government is built on trust. The citizens of a country give the government power over every aspect of their lives. A crucial responsibility of the government is to maintain information about individuals, organizations, activities, and assets. Government agencies issue birth certificates, death certificates, marriage certificates, driver’s licenses, passports, business licenses, property deeds, and more. These agencies are trusted to maintain and safeguard the information of every citizen.
Naturally, government agencies are always on the lookout for tools and technology that can help them better manage the trusted information. It’s a complicated task. They are looking for tools that will be secure, efficient and fast. Recently, governments all over the world are looking at blockchain as a potential solution. More and more countries are running pilots, tests, and trials using blockchain as a core technology to improve their governments.
