The ISA ² ( Interoperability solutions for public administrations, businesses and citizens ) has just presented this new publication of ELISE ( European Location Interoperability Solutions for e-Government ) which analyzes seven services based on developed blockchain in Europe, with active participation of public authorities both nationally and locally.
The list of projects analysed includes:
- Blockcerts academic credentials
- Real estate transactions Chromaway
- Decentralized identity uPort
- Infrachain governance framework
- Pension infrastructure
- Intelligent Stadjerspas vouchers
- Registration of title to exonum
Each has been analyzed with a structured framework of multiple layers that covers the institutional aspects, functional, technical and economic deployed service. Furthermore, the work has also considered the potential of each service based on blockchain to climb at the level of the HAT.
The study recognizes that blockchain technology can reduce bureaucracy, increase the efficiency of the administrative processes and increase the level of confidence in the maintenance of public records.
However, blockchain has not yet proved a form of disruptive innovation or disruptive for the government, as sometimes presents. We may consider the ongoing projects provide incremental changes - instead of misguided operational capabilities; although it can generate some clear value for citizens to take these technologies.
