A blockchain-based government has the potential to safeguard organizations, drive process optimization and securely store government, citizen and business data. Many agencies are increasing efficiency by implementing blockchain technology into everyday work. Through blockchain application, citizens can entrust their most sensitive data to a range of digital services with confidence.

By sharing methods of planning, designing and implementing blockchain technologies in various portfolios, public sector professionals can gain practical strategies to enhance the security of internal and external digital services.
